Hi @punitm306,

Currently analyzing greenply and overall forest theme. Please share your findings on the questions you’ve mentioned if any and would like to work on supporting the analysis here.

Century vs. Greenply — Century is making great margin in plywood where Greenply is making in MDF but not in plywood. Any idea on the same.

as value investors … we seek value in our investments and rationality in our expenditures. try this as we are on topic of wood work anyway
http://www.joshuakennon.com/buying-quality-furniture-can-save-you-money-in-the-long-run/

personal note: i am pure nnt in this regard … visited my grandmothers house in village few months ago… old furniture remains gold… last long and get better with time. I think some of us have seen ads in news papers about sale of old ship furniture.

discloser: i am interested in this counter … but felt like sharing this aspect like somebody mentioning health effect of tobacco company… labor policy of a manufacturer … health aspects of Maggi for Nestle.

Newton inverted: if something can’t go on forever… it will eventually stop.
… sometimes we find ideas from related reading. if it violates some vp policy i sincerely apologize.

1- 12-15% growth is going to be achieved within 9 months itself going by current trend of Q1.
2- ROIC will improve going forward as the company changes its strategy to a more asset light model.
3- This MDF segment is going to be the star division in coming 3-5 years. They are setting up a big new plant for this.
4- MDF growth has gone through the roof despite a weak demand scenario which means there is great acceptance of this product in the market. (Basically this MDF is a cheap product which is used in Italian furniture. And in India, CHEAP works).
5- GST should again be an obvious good thing.
6- Even Ply segment has grown but margins fell thanks to huge increase in traded ply. But this has improved the cash position hugely and this should convert greenply into a higher roic company soon. Its a good strategy I feel.
7- They are tripling MDF capacity by 2018 and that will really take Greenply to the next level! Just an incredible company.

Read Mr. Joshua kennon’s blog and the associated comments, and my immediate reaction was very negative about MDF.

When it comes to consumer buying trends and the strength of the Marketing in educating the Masses, I still feel that MDF is going to rule. Rationally, the investment in MDF as consumer is foolish but as an investor it is a gold mine. Speaking ethically will be the other way around.

Personally, I am going to inform to my close circle to be careful when purchasing wood. Not to go for MDF.

world wide furniture manufacturing have replaced plywood with MDF at least 10 years ago. MDF is much easier to work with, better finish product, cheaper and longer lasting. India furniture industry (organised and unorganized) will adopt this trend sooner rather than later. thank to this thread i have been able to differentiate between Century Plywood & Greeenply.
needs to see what will be average price to enter. as the company has expressed its desire to expand rapidly its production capacity, any uptake in the RE sentiment will be a boon.

Does one need to subscribe to Capital Markets website (Paid subscription I mean) to get the concall updates and transcripts? Thanks in advance


(Vishnu Ch) #94

Yes. normally one needs to subscribe.

Having said that, i myself have not subscribed to Capital Markets.
I get the details through old fashioned google search with specific terms.

Which is why i do not want to share the actual link and be held liable, as one can figure out the other proprietary sections such as Analyst Meets or Special Reports with a little bit of effort.
Moreover, con-calls are anyways now available through researchbytes.

I reiterate, you can also get it through Google Search.


(abhishek dey) #95

Know researchbytes, was wondering about this capital market. Thanks for your reply :slightly_smiling:


(nikhil) #96

if we look at their sales growth
march 12- 35%
march13 - 21%
march 14 -7%
march 15- negative 25%

greenply is standing only because of sudhir valia investment in the company.otherwise it would be quoting in double digits today.
