What does the Zee merger with Sony mean?

Zee Entertainment to merge with Sony Pictures
by 5paisa Research Team 22/09/2021

A few days after Zee Entertainment investors tried to oust Punit Goenka from the top job at the company, Zee has announced a strategic merger deal with Sony Pictures Network India Ltd. The combined entity created through the merger of Zee Entertainment and Sony Pictures will have a combined market cap of Rs.50,000 crore to begin with.

How will the ZEE - Sony merger be structured?

While Zee Entertainment is still struggling for cash to bankroll its expansion plans, the merger with Sony Pictures will give the combined entity greater access to cash flows and capital heft. Currently, as per the relative valuation ratios, Zee should have a stake of around 61.25% in the merged entity. However, it is Sony Pictures that will bring in the much needed cash into the combined venture. In fact, Sony will bring with it an assurance that the merged entity will have a cash chest of at least $1.5-1.6 billion or Rs.11,000-12,000 crore.

As a result, Sony Pictures will get a larger 52.93% share in the combined entity. The balance 47.07% stake will be held by Zee Entertainment. Since Zee Entertainment will cease to exist as an independent entity, the shareholders of Zee will  be issued shares of the merged entity on a proportionate basis. Sony Pictures will be the majority partner in the merged entity. 

Progress on the ZEE - Sony merger deal so far

As of now only the approximate ratios are worked out and the term sheets have been exchanged and agreed upon. There are bigger challenges like approval from the two boards, convening of an EGM to get the approval of minority shareholders; including institutional shareholders etc. For Zee, the merger will not only be based on the financial heft that Sony brings to the table but also on the strategic advantages of reach and eyeballs.

As of now, the shareholders of Zee and Sony Picture have entered into a non-binding term sheet. As per the term sheet, they will combine their linear networks, digital assets, production operations and program libraries to create a common pool with greater synergies. There will be a time limit of 90 days within which both Zee and Sony Pictures will conduct due diligence of each other through data rooms.

Since Zee is a listed entity, the deal will require the approval of the stock exchanges and SEBI. Since both the channels come under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, the approval of the ministry will also be mandatory. In addition, since it is a combination that will consolidate market share, the approval of the Competition Commission of India (CCI) will also be required.

Both Zee and Sony Pictures believe that the merger will be value accretive for the combined entity. The stock of Zee Entertainment has already rallied more than 70% in the last one week. Zee has advantages like expertise in content creation, regional bouquet of quality content and deep consumer connect over 30 years. Sony Pictures has been successful in various entertainment genres, especially in the highly lucrative gaming and sports segments.
 

What will the financials of the combined entity look like?

Here is a quick comparison of the sum of parts of the combined entity.

 

Financial Parameters

Zee Entertainment

Sony Pictures

Combined Entity

Annual Revenues

Rs.7,730 crore

Rs.5,846 crore

Rs.15,000 crore

Net Profits

Rs.793 crore

Rs.976 crore

Rs.2,000 crore

Cash on Books

Rs.1,800 crore

Rs.11,000 crore

Rs.12,000 crore


A quick look at the above date is sufficient to tell you that while Zee does score on revenues, it is Sony that scores on net profits, margins and in cash stash. That is what has given the advantage to Sony in the merger deal.

What role will Punit Goenka play in the merged entity?

As per the term sheet, Punit Goenka (son of Subhash Chandra) will continue as managing director and CEO of the merged entity for 5 years. In addition, Subhash Chandra family will have the leeway to increase its stake from 4% to 20% in line within extant rules. The challenge will be that INVESCO Fund and OFI Global China Fund had objected to the continuation of Punit Goenka as the CEO of Zee. They hold a combined 18% in Zee and their vote will be critical for the deal. That would be the next part of this emerging story.

BSE Adds a Record of 1 Crore Investor Accounts in 107 Days

BSE Adds a Record 1 Crore Investor Accounts in 107 Days
by 5paisa Research Team 22/09/2021

If there is one infallible indicator of the spread of the equity cult in India, it is the speed at which investors are flocking to the stock markets. In the last few months, they have been literally flocking to the stock markets by the dozen. At least, that is the visible trend if you look at the accretion in investor accounts. The Bombay Stock Exchange added a total of 1 crore accounts in just 107 days between June 06th and September 21st. 

Let us put this growth in perspective. The BSE is nearly 130 years old and the Sensex itself is nearly 42 years old. However, the BSE touched a level of 1 crore investor accounts only in 2008. From that point, the BSE added 3 crore investor accounts in the next 10 years at an average accretion of 1 crore accounts every 3 years. Between 2018 and 2021, the investor accounts at BSE doubled from 4 crore to 8 crore. That perhaps captures the real story.

The reasons are not far to seek. Bond yields are at historical lows and real estate is very volatile. Indian households have seen a huge wealth effect due to the appreciation in the price of gold over the last 3 years. Much of that money has gravitated into equities. To underline this shift to equities, a huge army of young millennials are preferring direct equities and equity mutual funds as a stepping stone to long term wealth creation.

This 8 crore number is a combination of trading accounts and mutual fund accounts, but nevertheless this is indicative of a huge equity asset shift among investors. The trend indicated by the BSE is also largely corroborated by the surge in the number of trading accounts and demat accounts at brokerages. Even SIP flows into mutual funds (predominantly equity funds) have surged to nearly Rs.10,000 crore per month with over 4.4 crore SIP folios at work. Clearly, this is equity cult at its very best.

Torrent Power Acquires 100% stake in Surya Vidyut

Torrent Power acquires 100% stake in Surya Vidyut
by 5paisa Research Team 22/09/2021

Torrent Power, belonging to the Samir Mehta Group of Gujarat, has entered into a stock purchase agreement with CESC Ltd based in Kolkata. The agreement is to acquire 100% of Surya Vidyut Limited for a consideration of Rs.790 crore.

Surya Vidyut is 54% owned by CESC and 46% owned by Haldia Energy Ltd. However, since Haldia Energy is a 100% subsidiary of CESC, Surya Vidyut effectively becomes a 100% subsidiary of CESC.

CESC is part of the RP Goenka group which is headed by Sanjeev Goenka. Surya Vidyut is structured as a special purpose vehicle (SPV) and it owns 156 MW  of Wind Energy generation capacity. 

These wind energy plants are located across the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. Since Torrent is based out of Gujarat, these plants also become contiguous to the geographical location of their core business interests.

It is not just the existing 156 MW capacity that is of interest but also the capacity that is currently under development. Additional renewable energy projects to the tune of 815 MW are currently under development for which the LOA has already been executed and the power purchase agreements (PPA) have been signed off for 515 MW of capacity.

For its existing capacity of 156 MW spread across Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, Surya Vidyut has existing 25 year PPAs with the state DISCOMS at an average weighted tariff of 4.68 per KWH.
Most of the large power companies ranging from NTPC to Tata Power and the Adani group are heavily investing in renewable energy to improve the green mix in their power portfolio. That is what most of the power companies are currently trying to do.

For Torrent, which is a key player in the power sector in Gujarat, a big renewable shift will help reduce their carbon footprint and help improve their valuations overall. The Torrent group of Gujarat is already a dominant player in pharmaceuticals, power as well as into gas distribution.

Steel Minister Calls for Cost Reduction Road map

Ministry of Steel
by 5paisa Research Team 22/09/2021

If one thing is hitting Indian industry and infrastructure hard, it is the price of steel. In the last one year, the price of Steel Rebars on the London Metal Exchange are up nearly 61%. It impacted major steel user industries like construction, automobiles and consumer durables. Not surprisingly, the Steel Minister, Ram Chandra Prasad Singh has asked steel companies to evaluate cost structures and target price reduction in next 6 months.

The problem is the cost structure does not offer much leeway. The Indian steel Industry is the second largest in terms of annual production after China. There are two technologies that Indian steelmakers deploy for manufacturing steel viz. Blast Oxygen Furnace (BOF) method and Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) method. The BOF method is more popular in India and accounts for nearly 75% of the steel produced domestically.

The table below captures the approximate cost mix of manufacturing one tonne of steel using the Blast Oxygen Furnace Method.
 

Cost Input

Share of Steel Cost

Iron Ore (including transport)

52%

Coking Coal (including transport)

22%

Steel Scrap

10%

Fluxes, industrial gases, ferro alloys

10%

Labour, electricity etc

6%


Data Source: Steelonthenet.com

The two major influencing factors in the cost of steel are iron ore and coking coal. Iron Ore prices are largely linked to global prices and if domestic prices are set too low then iron ore producers like NMDC will be incentivized to export iron ore. In the steel making process, coking coal is important as it is the primary reducing agent for iron ore.

The minister has made an interesting point about using pulverised coal injection to reduce the use of coking coal, which is mainly imported. What he means is that by injecting fine coal particles into the blast furnace, it is estimated that the use of coking coal can be reduced by almost 30%. That would be a good strategy, although the economics and government support for the same will hold the key.

The use of PCI technology will suit large integrated steel players like Tata Steel, JSW Steel and SAIL by reducing cost meaningfully.
