Sudarshan has earmarked an aggressive capex plan of Rs 585 crore (Rs 225 crore spent in FY20) largely spend on capacity addition for growth projects (new and existing) mainly in margin accretive HPP and speciality segments. Post pandemic, we expect the company to grow at ~12% CAGR in FY21-23E amid 20-25 annual new launches, capacity addition and strong demand. The company’s operations and demand from end users are reverting back to normal as the economy opens up. H2 is also likely to benefit amid some pent-up demand. With favourable macro factors and strong domestic demand are key catalysts for it. Margins are also likely to improve due to backward integration and change in product mix towards margin accretive products.
