I am quite liking this company. The RoE profile of the company is outstanding. The source of which is the technology moat company has. If one reads the AR we can see almost monopoly in the technology the supply.

Only concern is growth, which can get revived if the sector turns.


PS- holding it at recent levels.

This debt free company has a good ROE of 25.94%, and ROCE of 22.11% for the last 3 years, which will only improve due to fall in input price and revival of power sector.

I have been trying to understand whether the re-allocation process of coal blocks (which begins in February) will have any bearing on Alstom. Is this likely to drive the growth in the top-line of the business going forward?
Please could you share your views?

Many thanks.

Abhineet Joshi

Hi Abhineet,

Overall power sector looks good with falling input prices, such as coal, copper, crude, etc.

Stock is going strong for the last couple of days, result announcement is tomorrow.

All the best


Hi Amit,

Thanks for reply. And yes, have been following Alstom now and invested in it as well. Would you mind sharing the report (or website) from where you got the above information? I am interested - just out of academic curiosity. No problem if it is not easily available.



Alstom India came out with its q3 results today.

Revenues have fallen from 533 to 390 crores.

net profit of 14.9 cr against a loss of 7.58 cr y-on-y.

As mentioned in the footnotes, these results have to be seen in view of discontinuation of business sold off.

Plus the main theme here is corporate action where GE is acquiring the energy business of Alstom worldwide whereas post this development, the cash rich Alstom (global) would focus totally on transportation business.


This deal will be very much positive for indian as well as american companies which serves whole spectrum of Power Sector

1 company we can think of is ALSTOM INDIA LTD , post takeover of Worldwide energy business of ALSTOM globally by GE of America, Alstom India is likely to get access to whole lot of product and services portfolio of GE of USA, especially After clearance of nuclear deal by PM Modi and President Obama.

Below is the link of GE HITACHI already producing close to 45 GW of Nuclear power worldwide.

Also find listed below whole lot of service and product portfolio of GE of USA, the benefit of which Alstom India will get post takeover by GE

Alstom has two listed entities :

Alstom India

Alstom T&D India

After the acquisition - both the entities will be merged?

Somenath Paul,

I think Alstom India had two divisions viz rail transportation and energy.

Now worldwide, the energy business of Alstom SA France has been bought (in principle) by GE. So according to announcement by Alstom France, it will be left with rail transportation business and loads of cash.

How this affects Indian Alstom India, needs to be seen. My guess would be either of two scenario

first is GE buys out energy division of alstom india in a cash deal

other second alternative is energy division is spun off and taken over by GE whereas Alstom India retains the transportation division.

Either option should be interesting to follow closely.

disc: invested

PS : If anyone has better understanding of the enfolding scenario, please provide the details.


GE is in India from more than a century and has a significant presence already in many of the sectors. Why would it move business from its existing entities to a newly acquired listed entity? Or in other words, why would GE India let Alstom India take advantage of its parent’s portfolio and end up having to go through the various procedures involved with listed entities and then have to share it with minority investors to add?

I guess market reacted on this news:

Even if merger does not happen, wouldn’t Alstom benefits from Govt’s thrust on Power generation and Transportation?

The timeline for any merger or other corporate activity to happen in alstom india (with the earlier announced deal between alstom france and GE provided the deal goes thru at international level) is likely to be the first six months of this financial year.

Stock price seems to be exhibiting unusual strength amidst all the market carnage. Would be intersting to see how this corporate action pans out.

I tried getting answer from management thru email but only got a list of announcements made by the company and its parent in france and the time frame as q1 or q2 of fy 16.

AGM addressed by Mr. Patrick Ledermann Vice Chairman & MD.Highlights by Capital Mkt

The company has an order book position of about Rs 5170 crore as on Mar’15 as compared to about Rs 5460 crore as on Mar’14. Lower order book is as a result of lower number of orders in Thermal, hydro and renewable power projects in India. The order book is nearly 2 times its sales. However the benchmark is not correct, as the company is operating at lower capacities and can generate much higher sales at given capacity.
About 90% of India’s 12th 5 year plan is based on super critical technology. Alstom India already has a localized base for implementation of super critical technology orders in Power sector.As per the management in this 5 year plan, India’s Thermal power is going to be dominated by ultra super critical technology. Alstom India has entire Boiler, Turbine and Generator technology ready in place to serve this upcoming market.
Alstom India provides EPC services to gas based power plants both in India and worldwide. Exports business of the services will be much higher in the coming years to come.The company also supplies coal mills to cater to grading requirements of different types of coals. While Indian market moved slowly in FY 2014, internationally, company was able to supply to many countries.
Alstom Parent has the capability and technology to manufacture the Turbines used in Nuclear Power projects. The Parent as and when, during the course of time, will install the manufacturing capabilities in Alstom India, in line with the Make in India concept.The company has reduced its exports in line with focusing more on domestic businesses. However, if the domestic market continues to remain sluggish then company will focus more on exports of services and products. It has all the technology and manufacturing base ready to meet the demand.
The company is hopeful of orders from SEB’s to kick start soon and capex on power generation side should start from H2 FY’16 onwards. Both Central and State government are working on improving the health of SEB’s and some concrete results should come in before Mar’16.
Overall, management is optimistic about increase in spending in power generation segment and increase in order book, as the year FY 2015-16 spans out further.

Anyone still tracking this company ?

The company is in lower circuit in the past three days after the meet with the institutional players. Why is the market pricing this company and what does the market know the retail investors are unaware of?

disc - invested

After meeting with company some one has started selling big. They are closing some division . I don’t track company. Is any body tracking it ?

Is Alstom India same as GE Power?
Also is the Alstom’s metro trains business part of GE Power?

Sorry I don’t track , I just entered at lower level and sold
