Thanks for inputs. Little disappointed that India capacity expansion got extended by 1 Qtr more. But I feel, this price is good time to accumulate with 1 year view , given BCD and Price hike
Nice update from Mr. Pradeep kheruka of borosil renewables :-
Pradeep Kheruka Of Borosil Renewables Speaks On The Firm's Q4FY22 Results | Bazaar Corporate Radar - YouTube
Few other points that were discussed:
Solar accelerator program in Europe - similar to aatmanirbhar bharat, focus on local manufacturing - Idea is to go from current 3GW to 8-10GW in medium term. This will propel the need for solar glass, hence the acquisition
A key synergy from acquisition - current exports to Europe will start taking place from European subsidiary freeing up capacity for boro renew India to cater to domestic demand, which would bring in higher realizations. Also, supplying locally in Europe will allow for better realizations too since logistics cost will be taken care of. In Europe, costs are higher but prices are also higher, so net net its ok
On PLI scheme benefits → module mfgrs who buy glass from borosil renewables will get higher PLI from government since the amount of domestic products used in module making goes up…
25%+ of total production is from thinner (2mm, 2.5mm, 2.8mm) glass - will keep improving - higher average realization per sqmm when you go towards thinner glass
On anti-dumping duty getting expired in Aug → application has been filled, govt. is analyzing the information and processing it, a disclosure has been issued recently, will need to wait for final call → going in right direction
As per my varied calculations (which includes the Interfloat acquisition and SG-3 commercialization bySsep 2022), EPS for FY2023 comes to be ~Rs. 20 and for FY 2024 ~ Rs. 28.
Would love to hear from you guys if your calculations differ a lot from mine.
(i have not considered Interfloat expansion but included new shares to be issued to Interfloat on completion of acquisition).
2600 TPD (Tons per Day) capacity by FY 25 for a company which had capacity of only 180 TPD in FY19, this is HUGE!!! I am quite impressed by measured expansion for past 3 years followed by planned aggressive expansion for next 3 years. This shows company see large growth runway for global solar demand for years to come.
I also love the fact that company is sticking to its core competency and continuing expansion in its area of expertise whereby it can compete on a global scale.
Can some body throw some light on whether technology upgradation in solar energy can render the present module obsolete.
Mr Kheruka’s timing couldn’t have been better on Acquisition, massive budget allocation to renewables as a fall out of Russia conflict
Last 5 qtrs per at 450 tons capacities, ebdita has moved between 50 to 70 cr broadly( barring one exceptional 100 cr+) , one can see potential at 2600 ton India + EU. As long as demand sustained ahead of supply, BR can have good run.
