Description of Business
Broadly, MDL’s business can be classified into the following:

  • Residential portfolio (Affordable and mid-income housing projects; and Premium and luxury housing projects)
  • Logistics and industrial park portfolio
  • Commercial portfolio (Office projects; and Retail projects).


  • One of India’s largest residential real estate developers with a leadership position in the attractive MMR market
    MDL’s sales from India Operations for FY20 and 9MFY21 were ₹6,570 cr and ₹3,351 cr, respectively. Its Gross Collections from India Operations for FY20 and 9MFY21 were ₹8,190 cr and ₹2,893 cr, respectively. The MMR is considered the most attractive real estate market in the Top Seven Indian Markets, having the largest share of supply and absorption, as well as the highest average base selling price, of residential units from 2016 to 2020, catering to a wide spectrum of income and demography (Source: Anarock Report). MDL believes that the MMR has significant depth of demand for real estate developments across price points and that the MMR real estate market has high barriers to entry due to limited land availability, high prices of land and knowledge of the regulatory and approval processes required for developing a project. As a result of MDL’s strong brand, existing land reserves and industry knowledge & regulatory environment know-how in the MMR, MDL has attained a leadership position in the South Central Mumbai, Thane and the Extended Eastern Suburbs micro-markets of the MMR, with the largest share of supply (by units), absorption (by value) and completion (by area) of residential developments, among the five largest developers in the respective micro-market, from 2015 to 2020 (Source: Anarock Report). As per Anarock report, MDL has a strong presence in the Extended Western Suburb micro-market of the MMR, with the 2nd largest share of absorption (by value) and the 5th largest share of supply (of units) of residential developments, among the five largest developers in the respective micro-market, from 2015 to 2020. In addition, MDL has several planned projects in the MMR, which they believe will enable them to have a robust launch pipeline over the next few years.
  • Well-established brand with ability to sell at premium pricing and throughout the construction phase
    The company believes that its strong and recognizable brand is a key attribute in the industry, since it increases customer confidence, influences buying decision and helps target premium pricing for products. MDL focuses on branded realty, with a belief in developing and marketing its real estate projects as “branded products”. MDL’s brands include “CASA by Lodha”, “Crown –Lodha Quality Homes”, and “Lodha” for affordable and mid-income housing projects, the “Lodha” and “Lodha Luxury” brands for premium and luxury housing projects and “iThink”, “Lodha Excelus” and “Lodha Supremus” for its office spaces. The company believes that the strength of its brand and its association with trust, quality and reliability is primarily driven by its track record of delivering quality products, with modern amenities and innovative design elements and landscapes, largely within committed timelines. MDL has also increased its brand recall through celebrity endorsements and by collaborating with luxury designers. MDL typically aims to sell over 80% of the Saleable Area of a project during the construction phase. MDL leverages its brand value and focuses on selling sizeable percentage of units within one year from the launch of a project as well as prior to the receipt of the occupation certificate, which assists them in generating operating cash flows during the construction phase. Such sales help reduce the need for construction finance and enable them to achieve optimal returns on their projects. The company also believes that they have been able to leverage their brand presence, customer confidence, track record of successfully delivering projects and superior construction quality to increase sales volumes and also command premium pricing for its products vis-à-vis other projects in the respective micro-markets.
  • Highly diversified portfolio across price points and micro-markets in the MMR with a focus on affordable and mid-income housing
    MDL has a diversified portfolio of residential developments, spread across price points and micro-markets in the MMR. Its developments cater to wide spectrum of economic and demographic segments, from luxury residences in South Mumbai to large, integrated townships in the extended suburbs offering affordable homes. Over the years, MDL has established a strong reputation and track record in affordable and mid-income as well as premium housing projects. In affordable and mid-income housing, MDL has introduced one or more high-quality amenities, such as a large swimming pool, a private movie theatre, a cricket ground, a football stadium and an indoor swimming pool. MDL has developed prominent projects in the premium and luxury housing category in their respective locations as well. The company believes that its ability to design a high-quality and differentiated product and positioning it to the target segment through appropriate marketing and branding strategy, has enabled MDL to deliver several prominent projects in the premium and luxury housing category. Additionally, MDL believes that significant portfolio of completed and near-complete inventory in its premium and luxury housing, coupled with limited land availability in the South Central Mumbai micro-market where their premium and luxury housing projects are located, will drive sales volumes in this segment for MDL.
  • Unique ability to develop townships and generate annuity-like cash flows from them
    MDL has the ability to identify land, acquire it at competitive cost, aggregate it from several landowners and design a master plan to develop township projects. Upon development of the townships, Government agencies develop the surrounding infrastructure such as enhancing road and railway connectivity to improve the standard of living for the residents of the townships. MDL is currently developing large townships located at Palava (Navi Mumbai, Dombivali Region) and Upper Thane under affordable and mid-income housing projects.

The company also has contingent liabilities aggregating to ₹782 cr as of December 31, 2020.
  • COVID-19 has caused construction delays due to varying factors, caused a material decline in general business activity, impacted lease commitments for commercial developments, etc. The extent to which COVID-19 may affect MDL’s business and operations in the future is uncertain and cannot be predicted.

5 Stocks to BUY during Coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic

5 Stocks to buy during COVID-19
by Nikita Bhoota 20/05/2021

The Indian economy has performed relatively better than expected in 2HFY2021. The efforts taken by the GoI in the FY22 Budget marked the clear path for driving growth whilst compromising on fiscal prudence in order to drag the economy out of the Covid led slide. However, the current Covid second wave has re-imposed fresh partial lockdowns, limiting the economic activities.  As some economic & health indicators are already pointing towards downward revision in the GDP forecast, investing in the covid resilient sectors would be an ideal strategy to tide the second wave of Covid. We believe, sectors like Healthcare, Pharma, Diagnostic & selected FMCG will continue to thrive during the FY22.

Recommended Stocks CMP (Rs) Target (Rs) Upside
JB Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals (JBCP) 1,372 1,680 22.40%
Thyrocare Tech 1,027 1,250 21.70%
Cipla 904.00 1,050.00 16.20%
Dabur 538 620 15.20%
Apollo Hospitals 3,230 3,550 9.90%

Source: 5paisa Research, * price as on 19th May ,2021.

Investment Rationale:
Cipla is one of the largest Indian pharma companies. It is a major player in the domestic formulations market, which contributes ~39% of its total revenue. Cipla makes drugs to treat cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes, weight control, depression and many other health conditions. We are positive on the stock due to strong build-out expected in the US business led by the inhalation portfolio, where we believe respiratory products alone can add incremental sales of USD230-250mn (40-45%) to the US business by FY25E and drive 12% cc Cagr (18% incl. Revlimid) in US sales over FY21-23E.  Sustained traction in chronic therapies will drive 7.5% Cagr in India sales over FY21-23E, despite the higher base.  We believe US respiratory launches, synergies from the One-India strategy and further cost optimization would drive a sustainable increase in return ratios over the medium term. The stock trades at 24.3x FY23E EPS.

JB Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals (JBCP) 
JBCP is a 40-year old pharma company with several well established brands in the domestic market and wide geographical presence in the both regulated and semi-regulated markets. While JBCP has created strong brands in the cardiac & gastro segments in India, focus ahead will be to diversify into diabetes, nephrology, paediatrics and respiratory. Expansion into these therapies will not entail an additional sales force, as mgmt. is re-aligning the GTM strategy for its rep team, by combining existing divisions. JBCP also intends leveraging its relationships with 0.3m doctors, to drive penetration in new therapies. Mgmt. is targeting 12-14% growth in its India PCPM over medium term, driven by 6-8 annual launches & increasing contribution from chronic therapies. Incremental R&D investments and BD opportunities will help JBCP augment its product portfolio and drive better growth in its branded generics businesses. Two new product launches are also planned in Russia in FY22, while JBCP intends to ramp-up its US ANDA filings to 4-6 from 1-2 pa, going forward. Although JBCP will look to complement its organic growth through acquisitions, management stated that 50% of the incremental capital allocation will be dedicated to the India business, where it will look to acquire brands/mid-size companies and, possibly, enter into inlicensing deals with MNC companies for the cardio-diabetes.

Apollo Hospitals
Apollo Hospitals is an integrated healthcare provider, with services ranging from hospitals, retail pharmacies, health insurance, clinics etc. The company is a pioneer in corporate hospitals and forms the largest hospital chain & organized retail pharmacy chain in India. Apollo’s overall hospital occupancies improved to 63% in 3Q from 56% in 2Q. While non-Covid occupancy stood at 60% in 3Q, it was already at 67% in Dec-20. Mgmt. indicated that occupancies should reach pre-Covid levels of 68-70% by 1Q/2QFY22, led by pick-up in international patients, domestic travel and improving surgical volumes. Healthcare services margins improved QoQ, from 11.5% to 18.5%, led by higher ARPOB and increase in surgical volumes. Mgmt. targets expanding margins for mature hospitals to 23-24% (current 20- 21%) and for new hospitals to 15% (current 13-14%) over the next 12-18 months, led by international patients and high-end surgeries. Kolkata hospital expected to contribute Rs800-850mn Ebitda in FY22ii (vs. nil in FY21). Pharmacy margins are also expected to improve, to 7% in FY22E from 6.5% in 3Q. Of the Rs11.7bn QIP proceeds, Rs4.1bn will be utilized for acquisition of 50% stake in Kolkata hospital and Rs1.5bn each for Apollo 24/7 and the diagnostics business Apollo aims to achieve preventive healthcare revenue of Rs10bn in the next 3 years, from Rs2.5bn currently. It also aims to scale diagnostics revenues to Rs5bn from Rs1.6bnpa, by deepening presence in South/East market.

Dabur India is one of the largest FMCG companies in India, with interest in health care, personal care and food products. Building on its legacy of quality and experience of over 100 years, Dabur has a number of powerful brands like Dabur Amla, Dabur Chyawanprash, Vatika, Hajmola, Real, etc. The company primarily operates in four segments i.e. consumer care, international business, foods and retail. Its international business spans across Southeast Asia, MENA and USA, and contributes around 30% to its total revenue. Covid tailwinds resulted in acceleration in the healthcare portfolio, the momentum has sustained at a high level for the third consecutive quarter in categories such as honey, chyawanprash, OTC and ethicals. Growth is likely to settle at a lower, but robust level in this portfolio. Dabur is ticking the right boxes in terms of riding the healthcare momentum and has accordingly stepped up ad-spends intensity. Recovery in hair care, juices and international has further sweetened the performance. The management highlighted that input cost inflation has inched up to 5- 6% in categories such as honey, amla, herbs and spices and the company would look to pass it on to consumers. Also, management indicated that ad-spend intensity would remain high to support brand investments and new launches. Dabur aspires to increase its ad-spends as a percentage of sales to ~11.5-12%, similar to HUL.

Thyrocare Tech:
Thyrocare is the largest B2B diagnostics player in India primarily serving smaller standalone labs, hospitals, nursing homes and doctors. Thyrocare operates a Centralised Processing Laboratory (CPL) at Navi Mumbai, which is supported by 11 Regional Processing Laboratories (RPLs). B2B segment accounts 80-85% of Thyrocare’s pathology revenue, while Thyrocare has also created a strong brand for itself through ‘Aarogyam’ test profiles in the wellness segment.  Thyrocare’s strong B2B model and industry leadership in wellness testing allows it to process high volumes of routine tests which, along with lower sample acquisition costs, drive significant operational efficiencies and 40% margins for Thyrocare. While its revenue growth had slowed during FY17- 20, mgmt. is striving to drive improved accessibility for the brand by doubling company’s network of branded collection centers to ~1,000 TSPs by the end of CY21. While network expansion will contribute significantly to company’s growth from FY23E, it will also help Thyrocare to expand its customer base, improve TAT and further optimize logistics costs. Thyrocare trades at 30-50% discount to its B2C peers owing to higher pricing pressures in B2B/wellness segment, Thyrocare’s unparalleled focus on operating efficiencies enables it to offset such pricing impact.  We expect 12% revenue Cagr for Thyrocare over FY21-23E.

We are glad to announce that our recommended Portfolio has performed well wherein almost all the stocks in the portfolio have achieved the desired targets and have given strong returns throughout the last year. Check our performance of COVID-19 portfolio that was suggested in 2020

The company also undertakes conversion of hot rolled coils to pipes, chrome ore to ferro chrome and manganese ore to silico manganese for an Indian steel conglomerate. The forward and backward integration of manufacturing plants has resulted in multiple points of sale across the steel value chain and provided with flexibility to sell intermediate products as well as use them for captive consumption, depending on the demand. This has resulted in a diversified product mix, which has reduced dependency on a particular product and de-risked revenue streams.
