Good analysis.
To reclarify, it’s the parent MNC co that Produces a third of world paper. Indian co has slow growth and is sitting on a lot of unproductive cash with no clear indication of what they’ll do with it.

IN my biased opinion, co has narrow moat good pedigree and reasonably priced when I bought it about 30% cheaper than CMP. I don’t expect any fireworks in terms of growth though.

Disc: long since a long time

The management has decided to put the Cash Reserves to good use and has done CAPEX over the last 2 years of Rs. 40 Cr.
Since the initial CAPEX was done on Land/Building (non revenue accretive Fixed Assets) and they have now started major Plant & Machinery addition, we should start seeing the numbers coming in.
March quarter was already quite exciting.

Did anyone attend the AGM?


Any idea how much additional revenues they can generate from this capex?

Also with lot of capex happening in paper and packaging industry, voith seems well positioned to benefit from the same.

Just started looking into the company, the numbers look good, and price has finally caught up to the performance. But I don’t understand what their products exactly are, can anyone shed more light on this? Went through the AR but couldn’t find anything much there as well. Also what are the growth prospects and drivers for this company?

Voith paper looks very interesting, It’s a good idea to go through FY20 AGM transcript to understand the business a little better

I have also sent a mail to the company to upload the FY21 AGM transcript at the earliest, hopefully it will be done soon

Prepared a small thread:


Hi, started tracking this company. Can anybody shed light on whether the upcoming plastic straw ban to paper will benefit this company? Thanks
