About Indigo Paints Ltd IPO

Indigo Paints (Indigo) is the fifth-largest decorative paints company in India, with a larger presence in tier 3/4 towns and rural areas coupled with a strong portfolio of differentiated products. It has clocked the fastest organic revenue CAGR of 29% in the past five years among the top five decorative paints companies in India.

The company was incorporated as “Indigo Paints Private Ltd” at Pune on March 28, 2000 and was later converted into a public limited company in August 2000. In order to expand footprint in southern India and gain access to solvent-based paints, Indigo acquired Kerala-based paints player Hi Build Coatings in FY16, which had a turnover of ₹123cr in FY16. With this acquisition, Indigo also gained access to manufacturing facilities in Kochi and Pudukkottai.

South India constituted 46%, while East India constituted 29% of the company’s sales in FY20. It is the #3 player in Kerala, close on the heels of the #2 player (Berger Paints) and almost twice the size of the #4 player (Kansai Nerolac) in that market. Indigo derives 45% of its sales from emulsion paints. Also, it has a distinguished portfolio of differentiated products based on end-use and value-added properties, which include products such as floor coat emulsion, bright ceiling coat, tile coat, dirt-proof and waterproof exterior laminate. As of March 2020, Indigo has three manufacturing facilities, one each at Jodhpur, Kochi, Pudukkotai, with a combined capacity utilization of ~48%.

Key Points

The fifth-largest Indian decorative paints company:

 Incorporated in Mar-2000, Indigo has rapidly scaled up, logging a turnover of Rs6.2bn in FY20 and delivering an organic revenue CAGR of 29% (48% incl. acquisitions) in the past five years. It has 2% market share and is at the #5 spot in a highly competitive and oligopolistic decorative paints industry. Indigo Paints derives ~46% of its sales from southern India and commands the #3 position in the state of Kerala. It has built a network of ~11,000 dealers and ~4,600 tinting machines.

A solid growth model:

 Indigo Paints has been able to stand out in an industry with a cluttered tail, via development of differentiated products (29% of sales) catering to specific consumer needs, supported by ad spends similar to that of major players (except Asian Paints) on an absolute basis, despite its smaller size. A focus on smaller towns and cities helps it to grow faster and make inroads in the trade, which is a highly daunting task for any new company to achieve in big cities. The tinting machine-to dealer ratio for Indigo is 0.38 vs. ~0.65 for the top-three players; Indigo plans to focus on ramping up this ratio, as the addition of a tinting machine more than doubles the sales from a dealer.

Outlook & Valuation:

As per our estimates, Indigo Paints would yield a valuation of 46x FY23E EPS (on upper price band) vs. 63x for Asian Paints and 77x for Berger Paints. A combination of higher growth and lower valuations makes for an exciting investment opportunity.

We recommend Subscribe to the IPO, given favorable growth-valuation equation.
