COMPANY HAS COMMISSIONED 10000 MT PLANT FOR NIACINAMIDE . COST ADVANTAGES OWING TO SCALE , VERTICAL INTEGRATION IN BETA PICOLINE AND TAX INCENTIVES SHOULD HELP THE COMPANY GAIN MARKET SHARE. COMPANY WITH ITS CAPACITY IS AMONG THE TOP THREE MANUFACTURERS OF NIACINAMIDE GLOBALLY.

COMPANY HAS ALSO INCREASED CAPACITY OF PYRIDINE WHICH HAS STARTED CONTRIBUTING AND MANAGEMENT EXPECTS INCREASED VOLUMES DUE TO INCREASED CAPACITY UTILISATION. THIS IS ALSO LIKELY TO HELP THE COMPANY IN BACKWARD INTEGRATION FOR SYMTET AND NIACINAMIDE PRODUCTION.

COMMISSIONING OF SYMTET PLANT BY Q1 FY 13 FOR WHICH COMPANY ALREADY HAS LONG TERM SUPPLY AGREEMENT WITH A LEADING MNC.

AT FULL CAPACITY UTILISATION THE MANAGEMENT EXPECTS NIACINAMIDE TO GENERATE REVENUES OF 70 MN USD AND SYMTET TO DO 90 MN USD.

COMPANY HAS GUIDED FOR 20% CAGR GROWTH IN REVENUES OVER NEXT 3 YEARS AND IS AIMING TO REDUCE DEBT TO EQUITY AT 1 AGAINST 1.8 CURRENTLY.

AND WITH ENHANCED CAPACITIES, NEW FACILITY FOR NIACINAMIDE TO START CONTRIBUTING AND BACKWARD INTEGRATION INTO BETA PICOLINE HELPING THE COMPANY IN BEING COST COMPETITIVE, JUBILANT LIFE LOOKS INTERESTING AT CMP.

STOCK PRICE HAS BEEN BEATEN DOWN FROM LEVELS OF 350-390 IN JUNE-JULY 2010 TO CURRENTLY LEVELS OF 165-170.

THE TRICK HERE SEEMS TO BE IN TAKING A CALCULATED GAMBLE AS TO HOW MUCH OF THE RECENT BAD NEWS IS FACTORED INTO THE CURRENT PRICE AND HOW MUCH APPRECIATION ONE CAN EXPECT IF THINGS FALL IN PLACE. VARIOUS BROKERAGES LIKE ENAM AND NOMURA HAVE TARGETS IN EXCESS OF 300 IN THIS ONE.

for further detailed study there is plenty of material on company website including concalls, investor presentations etc.

Yes Hitesh… a Good Co. with great management…World-leadership position in many products…However debt seems to be a real issue which will hamper any significant upmove…~85 % of Debt is foreign currency debt and therefore serving it could be near term headwind because of steep INR depreciation…Further CAPEX plan of 350 cr. for FY13 and 250 cr. each in FY14 and FY15 could further strain the resources as co. has track-record of overshooting planned CAPEX…Pyridine price fall, for which company is world leader, is a minor concern…

Downsides seem limited, and almost non-existent, from current levels unless there is some company-specific concern…Upsides seem limited atleast in medium term as debt-reduction initiatives will be key monitorable…

Rgds.

thanks mahesh for the updates.

I am looking forward to some positive surprises from the company in next 2-3 quarters with the commissioning of new capacities in new molecules and enhanced capacities in existing molecules.

lets see how things pan out. at present it seems no one wants to buy it bcos everyone wants to look at bottomline and not ebidta.

Mahesh, Jubilant is a dollar based company. Most of its revenues and raw materials are denominated in dollars.

Plus a major part of its sales are from exports.

Therefore, it’s a natural hedge to have its debt in dollars.

Jubilant q1 fy 13 results are out.

Its a mixed bag.

Total income from operations up 31% y-on-y and up 5% q-on-q to 1240 crores.

profit after interest but before exceptional items up to 158 crores (for q1 fy 12 it was 97 crores and for q4 fy 12 it was 124 crores).

So far so good.

Now coming to bad part, exceptional items amounting to 104 crores which mainly includes unrealized mark to market book loss of 87 crores on rupee loan of 910 crores swapped into dollar loan and FCMITDA amoritisation of 17 crores.

This exceptional items have taken toll on net profits and reported net profit is at 5 crores whereas normalised net profit is 109 crores. Normalised eps for quarter (not annualised is 6.86 per share).

If one looks at sales and profit excluding extraordinaries, the figures look fantastic.

It seems markets also dont seem to know what to make of these numbers. Stock was quoting at around 170 before results were announced and then tanked to 159 at around 3 pm… with heavy volumes and then by close it came back up again with even heavier vols to close at 172.

Hi Hitesh,

Really wonder how you pick most of the scripts at such a Wonderful prices. This is seems like a WOCKHARDT in making…( Remember it was at 300 levels…and sudden jump to 950 levels now…and i expect no price less than 1800 in the next year and half).

Wockhardt also faced similar balance sheet problems and its bottom line got effected badly due to forex loses and Huge debt. Now the management acted very prudently and their measures are paying.

Coming back to Jubilant life sciences, i believe the worst seems to be over for the script. But there will be no major upside at-least for a quarter as the rupee has to stabilise. I anticipate rupee not to cross 57 levels in this year as govt. and RBI is on its way to take some measures to contain the fall. Management have already booked the Mark to Market losses for the rupee value of 55.81 rs. Hence i suspect there will not be any major mark to market losses going ahead.( Correct me if i am wrong ). Also for their debt in INR, interest rates are not going to raise any further and can only be coming down eventually which will be helpful for them to reduce the finance cost. As per the your information if the management can make use of the enhanced capacities and act according in line with projected 20% CAGR revenue growth for the next three years with sustainable EBITDA margins at 21%, i smell a EBIDTA levels of around 1350 crores EBITDTA by FY14. And for a company of its caliber it can command a EV/EBIDTA ratio of 10 as the high endcompanieslike LUPIN,CIPLA etc are trading at or above 13 times EV/EBIDTA. In that scenario the EV of Jubilant can go up to 13500 whichimpliesa Market cap of 10000crore( astraight3 bagger in 2 years ). Please correct me if any of my above analysis is wrong as i am not an expert like you inanalyzingthe upside potential of the script.

Concerns:

1.Rupee value should not cross and sustain at levels higher than 56-57.

2). RBI should be lean towards the market and consider reducing interest rates atleast by a 125-150 basis points by FY14.

Doubts:

I request you to explain how this mark to market losses works for the company. I am really poor in understanding this and facing trouble in analysing many scripts. Is it a notional or real loss. What if suddenly rupee appreciates to 53 levels by the end of next quarter… Then the company can deploy back the amount( as they have marked losses upto 55.81 a dollar and if rupee appreciates they will be able to pay back the loan with less INR) into its bottomline. If this is true then its going to be an icing on the cake as the amount gained due to rupee appreciation coupled with their normal profits can take the script to much higher levels in lesser time.

Hi,

Yes, the m-to-m loss will get reversed if INR appreciates to <55.6 as per the Q-1 result presentation.

Buy since >70% of their income is earned in $/euro hasnt that helped in the 37% revenue growth from the foreign market? In that case when the INR appreciates the revenue will be affected.

We need to understand how exactly the currency change affects both revenue and m-to-m loss on the loans.

Cheers

Vinod

I recall having read in one of the quarterly presentations that each rupee change affects company’s net profits by 17 crores.

dont know which way. my guess is that rupee depreciation increases profits by 17 crores per 1 rupee depreciation.

but they seem to have cooked their own goose by converting the rupee loans to us dollar loan in a bid to reduce interest rate payments. the way things are going on the rupee dollar front, they already may be down by 10% in terms of currency movements.

Now with the hole they have dug up, if rupee appreciates, the exports will suffer from problems and the dollar loan will show appreciation in terms of forex profits. but markets might treat them as extraordinaries and still punish them. as it is they are being punished for extraordinaries bcos markets dont like net profits to be in negative even though ebidta shows good growth.

Hitesh, you are right they had actually indicated in Q4 concall that 1 rupee depreciation results in 12-15 cr in loss. Last 2 qtrs the $ value has gone from 45-50 and 50-55 and hence m to m losses booked. If $ goes higher losses will again be booked else things should be fine.

The numbers otherwise look good.

Report by Emkay, targets of 340

Hi Saurab,

Could you provide the link of the concall? I think Emkay had come out with a report ater with lower target.

Looking at 11 year chart of jubilant life

From Rs.6 to Rs.380 and now even at 165 they have created immense wealth

this excludes the free shares the shareholders got as a result of the hive off of jubilant industries

Hi Hitesh…

Seems Jubilant started its upward Journey … if the rupee dont play spoil sports they are highly likely to make a bottomline more than 400 crores in the next 4 quarters… And the hence the potential seems more than 100% return in a year… whats your call… technically it will face hurdle at 205-215… i think only after q2 …it wil break 220 depending on the results… for me it is a buy on any declines to 175-180… and looking for a target of 210 by Q2…

sandip

I agree with you that the journey seems to have started for jubilant.

But markets will have a keen eye on this one based on quarterly results. in between there will be these spurts and corrections.

hitesh.

Only 31 days left before the quarter ends

If rupee stays where it is till the end of September they are most likely to post good results as there has been nothing wrong with the core business both sales and EBITDA has been growing

It is the rupee depreciation which has been playing spoilsport
