Refex Refrigerants is into business of refilling and selling non-ozone depleting refrigerants gases popularly known as Hydrofluoro Carbons or HFCs which are used in auto air-conditioners, room and commercial A.C., refrigerators and refrigerating equipments. These refrigerants are replacement for CFCs and HCFCs which deplete the ozone layer.

 

The company is now expanding its capacity from 480 TPA to 3,000 TPA with an estimated outlay of Rs 36.15 crore which is financed by term loan of Rs 5.50 crore and equity issue of Rs 30.65 crore including at par promoters contribution of Rs 5.51 crore from promoters. Post issue, promoters stake would be close to 65%.

 

The future of the HFC gas is very bright, but the company would have competition from local manufacturers. Due to huge infrastructure cost, the margins of the company would always be under pressure. About 80% is the cost of raw material for the company. If trading turnover is removed, the increase in topline in FY 08 wont be significant. High equity base of Rs.15.20 crores would also be a dampner.

 

Considering the trading and service nature of business, the issue has very limited room for appreciation.
