WIM PLAST LTD FY18 Annual Report Notes
Management has hardly given any information in this year’s AR. It looks like the expansion done in FY17 of Coolers division and Sheet division hasn’t picked up any pace. Company has closed the year with higher inventory though, that may be indicative of better June 2018 qtr. Company was more or less able to pass on the increase in raw materials cost to the customer as the material cost increased marginally from 53.42% of sales in FY17 to 57% in FY18, it was the subdued sales growth which affected the company.

  • The Standalone revenue from operations for financial year 2017-18 was 385 cr as compared to 351 cr of the Financial Year 2016-17. The Standalone Profit after tax for the year has decreased from 4,857.88 lacs in FY 2016-17 to 4,468.26 Lacs in FY 2017-18.

There is rumor that IKEA is talking WIMPLAST for molded furniture and cooler supplies to IKEA India. When I called Wimplast…answer was it is in initial phase talk and could not speculate the news unless we get confirmed order.

How much do you think will be crude price impact on the margins? How much of this will be offset by the GST reduction from 28% to 18%?
