CRISIL Research has come out with its report on Emmbi Polyarns (Emmbi). According to the research firm, the business environment of the company is expected to remain challenging over the next few quarters.

Emmbi's Q2FY13 revenue exceeded CRISIL Research’s expectations while earnings were below expectations. Revenues grew by 51% y-o-y (due to capacity expansion) and 30% q-o-q to Rs 367 mn. EBITDA margin declined by 173 bps y-o-y and 77 bps q-o-q to 8.1%. Employee cost increased by 60% y-o-y and 62% q-o-q. Adjusted PAT declined by 36% y-o-y (up 35% q-o-q) to Rs 7 mn. PAT margin declined by 276 bps y-o-y (flat q-o-q) to 2%. Although the global flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs) industry is witnessing a slowdown, we believe Emmbi was able to grow its revenue by lowering realisations to increase volume offtake; this impacted EBITDA margin. However, as we have not been able to interact with the management, we do not have sufficient clarity on this. We expect the business environment to remain challenging over the next few quarters. We maintain the fundamental grade of 2/5, indicating that its fundamentals are moderate relative to other listed securities in India.

Domestic business drove revenue growth; company entered new geographies in Q2
Emmbi’s domestic revenue doubled y-o-y (up 19% q-o-q) to Rs 206 mn driven by growth across all product segments FIBCs, geotextiles, flexible tanks and canal liners. The export revenue grew by 16% y-o-y (up 47% q-o-q) to Rs 161 mn. During the quarter, the company expanded into three new countries Denmark, Holland and Uruguay.

EBITDA margin declined despite increase in contribution of value added products
The contribution of value added products increased 22% from 17% in Q2FY12 and 20% in Q1FY13. However, we believe its EBITDA margin declined by 173 bps y-o-y and 77 bps q-o-q to 8.1% mainly because the company lowered its realisations to increase volume offtake. Employee cost, which increased to 6.2% of sales from 5.8% in Q2FY12 and 4.9% in Q1FY13, also impacted EBITDA margin. We have lowered our FY13 EBITDA margin estimates by 100 bps to 8.5% and FY14 EBITDA margin and estimates by 75 bps to 9.7%.

Earnings revised downwards for FY13 and FY14; fair value revised to Rs 20
We have revised the earnings estimates downwards for FY13 and FY14 by 16% and 12%, respectively, to factor in lower EBITDA margin, higher depreciation and interest cost. Accordingly we revise the fair value to Rs 20 per share from Rs 21 earlier. At the current market price of Rs 13, our valuation grade is 5/5.
