I have been tracking this stock since Oct 15, and have been surprised what is it that’s keeping the price of this stock around the Rs.110 Rs. 120 mark.
If you look at the figures, they have zero sale in the last couple if quaters, yet what warrants the price.
I know they are working on a very niche way to produce certain pharma based products using the process of fermentation, but when will it materialize and by the time it does will it be actually used by any other pharma company as a raw material or directly be used as a product that be sold OTC.
Many unknows, but have some gut feeling that this might be a good stock to stay invested in, especially when the markets are falling (along with the stock price of KREBS)
Krebs is coming up with a rights issue however the draft document was not on BSE.
They have 2 products and they are doubling production of both after the rights issue
On their quarterly p&l, I assume the fixed costs like labour wont change much. Material costs will increase and 25cr of new additions will be depreciated over 20 years giving a monthly additional depreciation expense of 1.25cr
The new expansions are going live in June 2019
They are also developing 2 products, one of which is to target obesity which commands quite a high premium
In the attached most of the calculations for the 25cr are from page 58 onwards
On page 18, there is clause 23, which says they have insured their plant and assets at 581 crore on basis of replacement value. If this is true than the current market cap is a huge discount. The 581 crore assets eventually should generate much more revenue and profit
This company is into enzymes and fermentation… Is this a reason why IPCA and Sun Pharma have such a huge ownership in this loss making firm.
Experts from Pharma… Please guide me.
Management statement from AK Jain…
“And apart from that, we have Krebs as another associate where some kind of fermentations and some synthetic products are there. That company currently is in losses, but hopefully, we should turn it around in the next financial year.”
I saw very little discussion on this scrip.
The stock has has gained momentum after 22 MD July.
As per media
Krebs Biochemical fermentation plants are expected to break even towards the end of this fiscal.
Sajal Kapoor has talked about this scrip in one of his videos with soic. I Did some research here. Looked promising but I had so many questions that I couldn’t find answers to, due to lack of availability of information and my own limitations in knowledge. Let me know if you find something
