Sintex (Demerged) - textile business

(Agarwala) #21

Technically Sintex remains weak, as on Friday 8th December '17
On Friday it fell with larger than average volumes below the support level of 23.75. This happened in a strong market. The scrip is trading near its bottom. Further entry into the stock is advisable, when it rises and sustains above 24 with good volumes. This rise may even happen on this Monday, or it may take weeks. Twenty three is another support for this stock. Let us see whether that level holds.
Dear Somitosh, those investing in share market need to be patient for the value to be reflected in market price. While during this uncertainty, we can hold our existing positions, if we have faith in our original decision. I agree that it is a value play, as very well documented by Sanjay above.
Disclosure: currently holding one share but will invest more.

downward movement is seen because of equity dilution and the result impact. as result is not bad if you hear their con-call management say Phase II 3 lakh spinndle capacity has started and as sales has rising but its not reflected on operating profit because the labor charges and advertisement expense has increased and new capacity is running at 50% utilization. management says that going forward capacity will rise which will directly improve their bottom line.

The company had elaborate plans for expanding capacity , which is somewhat reflecting in increase in income but is there some information regarding the progress of phase 3 which the company had said will have 4 lakh spindles as I read some statements that the expansion, the third phase of 4 lakh spindles is being stopped because the state government is not giving subsidy for third phase. Someone having some information in this regard please may clarify.

The last communication I have from the company says that they are focusing on utilisation of 3 lacs Spindles which will come up by April and no mention one the last 4 lacs Spindles. So I presume that the last part of CAPEX is on hold.

Do they conduct con calls or come out with investor presentation?

Yes. They do both. You’ll find them on researchbytes.

(barasia) #32

I just checked. Researchbytes doesnt seem to have either. Found the presentation on BSE. Not sure about the concall now.

Am attaching a sheet showing some workings on sintex industries (sorry that it looks cluttered).

Please see the yellow highlighted cells. Ebidta margin % has dropped in all three Qs this FY. PAT margin has dropped in q2 and q3 after rising in Q1 (all are in YOY comparison).

Please see the stock in trade numbers. In this FY, they have substantially increased and also increased as a % of sales. Also look at the growth in other expenses and employee expenses in the 3 quarters this year over the respective quarters PY.

Stock in trade seems to have had a disproportionate impact on profits. To get some idea of sales/profits generated from manufacturing activities, i excluded this item from both sales and ebidta. See the growth in sales excluding this item – far lower than the total sales growth. And ebidta is negative if I subtract this from overall ebidta.

If you look at RM cost as % of total sales, then it has reduced yoy for all the 3 quarters this year. However, if you exclude stock in trade from the sales, and calculate the RM cost as a % of this net sales (viz sales from manufacturing activity), it can be seen that the RM cost has fluctuated Q on Q but overall for the 9 months, its about 5% up.

(ofcourse, my assumption is too simplistic, that they are just selling the stock in trade at cost and not earning any profit on that – this could be wrong. But I guess margins would be very less on this element of sales).

Surprising is that depreciation hasnt increased this year inspite of the expansion. Net fixed assets including CWIP has increased by just 17% in the 6 months from mar17 to sep17. I would have assumed that this number would be far higher since they were increasing capacity substantially.

Debt equity has slightly increased in sep over mar. But seems ok. Debt has increased by about 16% in H1-fy18 (in line with increase in assets)

Can anyone help in understanding the stock in trade element please?
