Sharekhan's research report on KEI Industries
Our Interaction with KEI Industries (KEI) reaffirms our positive stance on the company underpinned by its efforts to gain market share in wires, leadership in EHV cables, and focus on expanding its retail footprints across regions. The management expects a 17-18% revenue CAGR for the next two-three years as the commodity prices have started to stabilize and exponential growth may not be sustainable. It also eyes an operating margin of 10.5-11% and PAT margin of 6.5% on a sustainable basis. De-bottlenecking in existing capacities and greenfield expansion in cables and wires at ~ Rs. 800 crore investment (first phase by Q32024E) would help in market share gain and achieve its growth targets.
We retain a Buy rating on KEI with an unchanged PT of Rs. 1,300, factoring in optimistic demand and growth outlook.
