Company enjoys its leadership position by Velcro brand association with Bata, Relaxo & Liberty footwear manufactures currently. These technical textile products are used mostly in all the industries such as Footwear, Orthopaedic, Aviation, Home furnishing, Food packaging, Automobile, engineering, Medical accessories and sports etc.

The main reasons which attracted me to this company other than its leadership position in India is its recent association with APLIX. APLIX is a world leader providing hook and loop fastening solutions for over 50 years and operates six plants in the U.S, France, Brazil and China and sales offices around the world with revenues of 205million euros.Aplix have very interesting product portfolio in packaging space.if both companies synergize well then it will definatly reflect in Topline and bottomline of sky industries ltd.

I am holding few shares of sky industries ltd.


I am not a sebi regestered research analyst.above write-up is just for information purpose and not an advise to investment.


Good company and good product but still the sales have been on decline. Any competitor who is selling at cheaper rates perhaps…

Once Pawane (Navi Mumbai) Plant Fully operational we will see uptick in topline and bottomline.products of aplix will also contribute in future.

While the company appear to be in good business and tie up with international player also increase competitive strength, I am just wandering why growth rate for the company is so less in last decade? As per screener data, in last 10 years, Sales declined by -2.68%, Net profit shown lower than inflation growth of 6.6% and ROE of 4.08%. Even assuming debt cost of around 7(10%-3% tax benefit) and equity cost of around 14% with debt equity, Total netwroth 16 Cr and Debt of Rs 9.6 Cr give WACC of 11%. The company tax rate is not even 30%, but still giving that benefit, the company is generating ROE of only 4%. Even if company growth business 5 times, unless ROE improved susbstantially from 5% to 15-20%, the business is unlikely to generate any wealth for the Minority shareholder.

Also, look at good amount of interest paid and remunneration paid to the management. During FY2015, the company sold other plant and partially repaid the loan. However, operating margin does not give strength of international tie-up. Garment exports and other end use industry have shown more than 12-15% growth during last decade while company did not manage to grow in two digit.

FY2015 annual report also indicate some issue in New Mumbai facility with labour.Refer to Page 37 in annual report which state “the company faced external pressure as well as managed to overcome mini-crisis in form of Labour unrest at its Vashi Plant. However, the company able to services its customer and prevent loss of market shar by alternative arrangement”. On same page, total employee strength of the company indicated as 86. With such small labour force if the company face issues, how it would scale up operations?

No exports by the company.
The company purchased plant of Rs 3 Cr from subsidiary while sold plant of 8 crore duing FY15. One need to get more details about same.

While initial commnetary was very insightful, more detailed working raise major concern about scalability of business model and management capablity. More importantly, what has changed that would take the company in different league of high growth is not coming up properly. I would suggest one may work on that side to get more insight.

Discl: Not holding and hence limited time to work on this company. I would not be keen to invest unless get clear insight about changes which would take business to newer horizon.


Thank you very much dhiraj sir for your analysis. past performance of management is questionable i fully agree with you.
But recent developments like promoter preferencial issue,pawane (navi mumbai )plant restart (already hired 150 employee /labour on contractual basis),tie up with Aplix. indicate management eager to grow henceforth.

Thank you

At what price promoters r issuing Pref. Shares?
Year of association of sky industries ltd wiyh Aplix?
Source of news of Navi mumbai plant restart?

As per the notes mentioned in June quarterly results, 210000 warrants converted into equity shares at face value only ie.Rs.10 per share and current share price 41. In my view, it will further dilute the eps which is apparent from June quarter result and Company need to improve topline significantly to improve ROE/ROCE.

The allotment happened at 23/- per share according to the Feb 10 2017 filing. Don’t think the SEBI rule for preferential allotment pricing would have allowed them to do it at 10/-

Volume is very less. Can you through some light on it?

Low volume indicates promoters are busy in doing business and not involve in day to day stock price movement…and hence its a good sign that promoter concentrating more on routine business.


Sky industries Ltd.Reported good half yearly numbers.half yearly reported EPS of Rs.2 compare to last years half yearly EPS of Rs.0.03.half yearly revenue reported Rs.25.69 crore and net profit of Rs.65 Lakh.

Thank you
