Chairperson & Managing Director looking ahead statement in AR 2014-15 :
The prospects for the colourants industry in the next five years appear brightened on the back of rapid growth coming out of Asian countries like India, China and Japan, among others. In Western countries, industries like paints, dyes and varnishes are continuing to do good business, though end-user industries like inks have somewhat slowed. The US is on a path of recovery and Japan is showing signs of picking up, both of which are our main markets. Going ahead, the measures the Company has undertaken are expected to usher incremental growth. We believe that the glut in demand in Europe and China is temporary; things will soon take a turn for the better. At Asahi Songwon, we are attractively placed to capitalise on account of our robust business model, rigorous environment compliance and longstanding customer relationships, which should translate into enhanced value for our stakeholders.
I n the business of pigment manufacture, long-term sustainability is derived from a combination of robust topline growth and high profitability. The Company intends to accelerate product launches to generate higher revenues. The Company intends to reinforce its distinctive profitability focus as well. It will increasingly focus on products that are niche and value-added. Besides, it will select to manufacture incremental products from within existing facilities and without additional capital expenditure. The result is that the Company expects to generate higher returns on employed capital, enhancing surpluses and reinforcing sustainability.

CONCLUSION : asahi songwon doing well and future looking promising . if u see in non promoter share holders specialty chemical majors DIC & Clariant chemicals holds 13% stake combined. Those companies trading at 20 to 25 times for FY16 earnings, if I take 15 times for asahi songwon for FY16 earnings (eps-18) also it should be 270 with in 1 year.

I spotted this stock in Apr-17 after doing some research i figured that they are the largest producer of blue in india.
I have a sizable portion of my portfolio allocated and thinking of adding more as well.
My reasoning for it is, even if global market remains the same. the need to have blue ink in india itself is really high.
Unless there is more market dilution this seems like a good bet.

Any other comments please?
