The raw material cost as a percentage of sales was at 68% (Q1FY18: 63.3%, Q4FY18: 65% and our estimate: 64.7%) The company reported other income of Rs 16.7 crore. Hence, PAT came in at Rs 57.7 crore (our estimate: Rs 55.6 crore).
We continue to remain positive on the demand prospects of the company from the oil & gas sector, fertilisers, city gas distribution and water transportation given significant investments have been in these segments. With competitively placed capacities, the company is well poised to cater to upcoming demand. We expect the overall sales volume to pick up, going forward, given the healthy traction in the orderbook for both stainless steel and carbon steel segments. The topline, EBITDA and PAT are likely to register a CAGR growth of 17.4%, 22.2% and 23.7%, respectively, in FY18-20E. We continue to value the stock on 12x EV/EBITDA of FY20E and arrive at a target price of Rs 1050. We have a BUY recommendation on the stock.
