Arrow Textiles : This Arrow surely going to hit multibagger tag

Brief Introduction:

Arrow Textiles limited (ATL) is in textile segment with products such as Elastic, non-elastic tapes, woven labels and printed labels. ATL promoted by jayadev mody (owner of Delta corp) and holds nearly 69% with out any pledging.

Positives which i observed in the business.

1). The company is demerged entity from arrow webtex and it got a good will amount of 7.16 crores. The good will amount is released between 2008-2013, every year 1.43 crores released. But in 2014 with out any good will amount reported better EPS 1.8rs than previous year 1.5 rs.

2). Much importantly customer base includes strong clientele such as Jockey(Page Industries),Rupa, Fila, Amul, VIP, Turtle andHennes & Mauritz. This provides much needed clarity for business stability and future earnings, this is must for small companies to survive.

3). The company day-to-day operations run by chand arora, who had 25 years of domain experience.

4). The company has excellent track record of product list and all of them introduced in last 3 years. In fact company built the entire business in a span of 4 years(supervised by chand arora) and the current growth in textile segment is going to create lot more value to this hidden company.

5). Good Financials with roe(15) and roce (19) and DE ratio of 0.2 ( Better than Industry Leader arvind ltd though not comparable on any parameter)

6). Company last year profits are crossed with in 9 months of current FY.

Finally the financials speak much louder than my voice.

FY Mar12 Mar13 Mar14 9M

NetProfit (0.27) 2.9 3.5 3.4

Disclosure : Invested from 25 levels and currently hold 6% of my portfolio and plans to increase further in dips. Currently this stock is trading at 27 rupees.

Does not seem like a great risk reward ratio considering that you can get a bigger, better company with better ratios, better RoE and better visibility ahead for 4 x FY 15 PE.

10 x is par for the course for this industry and unless you believe that EPS growth is going to be super from here, I see this as one that can’t deliver more than 10-15% growth with low probability of re-rating.

Some points supporting buy:

  1. The Trailing EPS shows 30% growth.

  2. PE & PEG ratios are very good

  3. Promoters Increasing Holdings

  4. New product segments entry

  5. The ace investors are chasing textile industry, due to USD advantage, replacement of the MFA

Is it a good buy now in current bearish-scenario Or wait?

I exited this counter because of following issues:

  1. Even after several mails there is no reply from management to clarify the concerns.

  2. Even after several years of profits, none of the promoter companies arrow textiles, delta magnets, delta corp will declare dividend and they are not promoter friendly.

  3. When i spoke with them in last fy Q4, management told me that they had taken 4cr for capacity expansion and the profits will be reflected in Q1. But Q1 results are not good.

  4. To surprise in the current AR, they invested the same 4Cr in mutual funds which is not good for small cap company.

Disclosure: i exited it completely after holding for more than a year.

You mean the Mar’15 quarter or Jun’15 quarter?

Although the company has never declared dividend
even when churning out profits. The co. might be keen on giving out dividends
this year.

Since arrow textiles focus on high margin clients,
it can be a wealth creator in the upcoming years looking at the financials and
the growth.

Management looks good. Need opinions of other members in case if I am missing anything


I have dropped a mail to the co. for a detailed list of clientele, % share of exports in revenue. I’d like other respected members to look into this co. because of its high margin business and gradual increase in return ratios.

Dear All,
Being the starter of this thread and i holded this company for more than 1 year.

After several interactions with the management i felt that management is not investor friendly and moved away from this and invested in pioneer embroideries@ lower levels.

Jockey previously used to give work to these guys, now they are doing the work internally rather than outsourcing.


Yes need to start a dedicated thread on pioneer embroideries. I have also bought them at lower levels, and feel like accumulating now, but not sure if this is the right time, as dont have much clarity into the growth of their business.

The results are out & I don’t see anything spectacular … its same on lines of last year Q3… so all hopes of spikes are gone with wind… as ACE coming with a new pick in this week, I expect ACE family will move out of Arrow to get the next pick early… now retail investors will remain locked with Arrow for next few quraters until we see any major event, which pushes the prices above 60 or so

Delta magnet is taking over ratio is below:

It has turned out to be a penny stock & despite amalgamation future is quite bleak. Can someone having better view of the sector & series of events, share the expected actions & its impact on new merged entity. This may help investors in understanding & tracking this scrip, if it has some hope of being a good investment for medium / long term.

I think you are right. There is no clear understanding going ahead and the amalgamation seems to be only because it can used to leverage fundraising. Some analysis in this article -Merger of Delta Magnets, Arrow Textiles & MMG India to form Delta Manufacturing

If someone is tracking then need to check on the progress reports.

The result is poor & no dividend. Amalgamation has already making impact…
