In short- Pritika become the holding company by acquiring 100% stake in following companies. So trading company become the full fledged auto ancillary company.
1. Pritika Autocast Limited
2 Nibber Castings Private Limited

Both companies were in the business from long time so current trading company become an auto-ancillary company. Company is mainly catering to Tractor & Automotive industry providing products in the field of precision machined components out of casting, forging & bar stock.

Recently company participated in Agritechnica trade fair for Agriculture Machinery, Equipments, Parts held in Hannover, Germany from 12th – 18th November 2017.

quanrterly performance

Pritika Balance Sheet

On a consolidated level company posted around Rs. 11 Crore EBIDTA on a revenue of 83.3 Crore revenue…Margins seems to be improving.

Recent Developments and Promoters holding

Promoters has issued subscribed to fresh equity shares 40.17 lakhs shares @ 74.10.

Further, as per the announcement, promoter is planning to subscribe 3.50 lakhs preference shares to conversion of loan.

IT seems promoters are concern with high cost of debt hence infusing capital to replace the debt.

Post infusion of equity promoter holding has increased to 67.29% from current 57.62%.

As on Sep,17 Shareholding
Total No. of Equity = 1.35 Cr.
Promoter holding = 0.78 Cr.
Current Holding= 57.62%

Dec 17 Shareholding Pattern:
Total No. of Equity = 1.35 Cr.
Fresh Equity Shares issued = 0.401 Cr
Total Equity share post new issue = 1.76 Cr
Promoters’ no of shares post fresh issue = 1.18 Cr.
Promoter new shareholding = 67.32%

Promoters are infusing around 30 Cr. in the business, it means either they are using for capex purpose (forseeing growth) or to retire high cost debt.

Things will be more cleared by March 2018 once we have the full financial year result and Balance sheet.

Valuation ( ignoring fresh equity):
Current MCap of Company is around 150 Cr. + Debt is around 40 Cr. =190 Cr.
EBIDTA for 6 month is 11 Cr.
I expect full year basis they will do EBIDTA of 20-22 Cr.( generally ancillary companies which cater to tractors companies follow 55:45 ratio i.e. 55% revenue in first half and 45% in second half. with this logic I expect full year EBIDTA of 20-22 Cr…

With this kind of nos. Company is quoting 8x EV/EBIDTA for FY18 basis which does not seems very expensive. The activity which is visible as outsider reflects that company is making an effort to grow the business. With the small base double digit growth is very much possible.

Risk: 1. Since the fortune of this business is dependence on agriculture so earning may be lumpy.
2. M&M constitutes 30% of sales so it is too much dependent on M&M. Business is too Concentrated.
3. Did not find any history of promoter so we have to see whether new promoter is able to scale the business or not.

Disclaimer: I bought the stock around 100-102 based on my assumptions. Will add more may be post Q3 result.

Thanks Vivek for the details provided, does this have any threat due to EV.

(vivekgujrati) #3

Company is majorly into Tractor ancillaries so dont think any impact because of EV!!

The company is in to machine castings for tractors and count M&M, TAFE and Escorts are major customers. They are trying to diversify in to commercial vehicles auxiliary and hoping to benefit from Agricultural push as that would mean more mechanization. You can see some details from interview by m.d.

MD Harpreet Singh Nibber has given a presentation in a recent investors meet which I attended. If I get the presentation, I would upload here. The above information based that meet.

One positive claim by M.D. is that they never lost a major customer over the 42 years of history.Also senior employees stick with the organisation and second line leadership has many years in the organisation. If If both these are true, then they are a huge positive.

As per him, their area of expertise is Power, Labour and Capital intensive and thus with huge entry barriers. So no new entrants are there. But I do not know or assess growth prospectus. It would be good if any one can add their competitors’ names.

Disc: no holding. Still studying.

Fortune of Pritika is associated with tractor sales!!


Anyone can tell me that company has a borrowing of Rs. 44.90 Crore and cash from operating activity is just 3.17 Crore . From where they will pay such borrowings ??

(vivekgujrati) #10

Promoter has infused equity of 30 crore and my guess is that they like to
payoff the debt!!!

Investor ppt on fy 2018 q3

(sri krishna bhutra) #13

Company has acquired another company taking their total capacity to 50000 mTPA much ahead of what they thought of. Don’t know how much they paid for this acquisition but the capacity is ready to use and should prove fruitful for them considering the kind of demand that the tractor companies are having.
Link to acquisition notice.

The focus of the government is also on agriculture. Plus Pritika had done some exhibitions outside India and must have received some kind of orders or enquiries.

Interesting development. How we would know how much Pritika is paying for this transaction and whether it is paying at par of the current asset value or paying more thus creating intangible assets as ‘good will’ ? Inviting experts opinions

Some pointers on Amrit Duraparts -

They had a total capacity of 20,400 tonnes per annum as on 2013-2014. The turnover was nearly 60 crores in same year.

They manufacture Grey cast Iron and Ductile iron products with weight range of 5kg to 150kg. Pritika is manufacturing 5kg to 120 kg. Amrit is into manufacturing of Tractor, construction and mining vehicle components which would help build synergies.
Moreover, Amrit’s client list includes New Holland, TEREX, ESCORTS, Swaraj, JCB,Sonlika. Thus, having a similar and reputed client base like Pritika Auto.

The questions that come to my mind are -

  1. What was the cost of acquisition of Amrit Duraparts?
  2. Why did Amrit Durapart sell its plant to Pritika?
  3. Is Amrit Duraparts still operational?
  4. Amrit Duraparts have a total capacity of 20400 tonnes but why did company acquire only 12000 tonnes?
  5. Why Amrit Duraparts and why not some other company?
