Kajaria Ceramics’ strong volume led the growth in Q2FY22

by 5paisa Research Team 29/10/2021

Kajaria’s upbeat performance was led by strong volume, capacity utilization at 100% and comfortable transfer of steep gas cost. 
The company reported a revenue growth of 37% YoY (Rs. 9.7bn) and 20% in H2FY22, volume growth of 25% YoY and 15% in H2FY22, realisation growth of 8% YoY, total sales volume clocked at 24.8msm (which includes 12.6msm from own, 5.7msm from JV and 6.5msm from outsourcing), and EBITDA marginally grew 18.5% (contracting 163bps) due to increase in gas prices.  The net cash balance stood at Rs. 4.7bn as on September 2021 vs Rs. 3.5bn in March 2021. Net working capital slipped from 50 days in March 2021 to 56days in September 2021 caused by higher inventory.

Company witnessed a 20% revenue growth in tiles, revenue for sanitaryware/faucetware stood at Rs. 3bn and revenue for ply stood at Rs. 0.8bn for FY22. The company plans on indigenous production of some high value products that will be imported which will help improve the revenue and bring down imports gradually. 

Another gas price hike of Rs. 10-15/scm in next 15days is expected from Morbi. The gas prices for Kajaria are lower by Rs. 10-12/scm compared to Morbi players. Gas prices in North India stand at Rs. 38/scm, while in South India at Rs. 60/scm. Kajaria hiked prices gradually in YTDFY22; in April by 2-3%, July by 3%: and October by 4%. 

The company chalked out three brownfield projects at Gailpur; 4.2msm at Rs. 600mn, 3.8msm at Rs. 1.1bn and 4.4msm at Rs. 800mn. The total capex value would stand between Rs. 2.5-2.7bn for FY22E and at peak utilization, it would generate value worth Rs. 5bn. They are set to be operational in Q4FY22. 

Moving ahead, Kajaria has increased its dividend payout policy from 15-20% to 40-50% payout. Company has also announced an interim dividend of Rs. 8/share. It will continue to gain market share on the strong base of its industry leadership, strong brand recall, and healthy profitability matrix.

Tejas Networks is all set to capitalize on the 5G wave, climbs 380% in one year!

Tejas Networks is all set to capitalize on the 5G wave, climbs 380% in one year!
by 5paisa Research Team 29/10/2021

Backed by Tata Sons, Tejas Networks is all set to expand and benefit from the 5G wave.

The stock price of Tejas Networks Ltd hit a 52-week high of Rs 570.2 on 5 October 2021. In the last one year, the stock moved from Rs 89.80 on 30 October 2020 to Rs 431.40 as of 28 October 2021, delivering returns of 380%!

Incorporated in 2000, Tejas Networks is an optical, broadband and data networking products company. It is engaged in designing, developing and sales of high-performance and cost-competitive products, which are used for building high-speed communication networks to carry voice, data and video traffic from fixed-line, mobile and broadband networks over optical fibre. The company’s clientele includes telecommunications service providers, internet service providers, utility companies, defence companies and government entities in more than 60 countries.

In Q2FY22, on a consolidated basis, the company reported total revenue of Rs 172.78 crore, which was an increase of 57% YoY. The PBIDT and PAT came in at Rs 18.34 crore and Rs 3.66 crore respectively.

Industry dynamics

  • As per a study done by Market Research Future (MRFR), the global telecom equipment market size is projected to grow at an 11.23% CAGR by the year 2025.

  • Increasing number of cellular stations, increased data consumption, need for next-generation ready network equipment for 5G networks and fibre-based broadband networks have driven a new capex cycle across the globe.

  • On the domestic front, the government policies favour the telecom sector. The government has designed a Rs 12,195-crore production linked incentive (PLI) scheme for the sector. This scheme aims to boost local production of telecom equipment, reduce dependency on imports and provide an opportunity for domestic manufacturers to focus on exports as well.

Tata Son’s investment in the company

On 29 July 2021, the company announced that it executed definitive agreements with Panatone Finvest Ltd, which is a subsidiary of Tata Sons Pvt Ltd. Tata Sons bought a 43.35% stake in the company for Rs 1,884 crore in a multi-step deal that involved the sale of shares worth Rs 500 crore and warrants worth Rs 1,350 crore. Moreover, Tata Sons made an open offer to acquire up to a 26% stake at Rs 258 per share, following SEBI regulations.

The company (Tejas Networks) shall use these proceeds to invest organically as well as inorganically for expansion of product portfolio and R&D, investment in sales, marketing and additional people. Furthermore, it shall use the funds for enhancing manufacturing and operational capabilities including working capital expansion and for other general corporate purposes.

This transaction provides an opportunity for Tejas Networks for leveraging synergies with Tata Group with access to wider global relationships. Moreover, the capital infusion strengthens the company’s balance sheet, which enables it to invest for growth and expand its product portfolio.

At 1.47 pm, the share price of Tejas Networks Ltd was trading at Rs 435.1 as against the previous day’s closing price of Rs 431.40 on BSE.

Azim Premji tops the list of billionaire philanthropists!

Azim Premji tops the list of billionaire philanthropists!
by 5paisa Research Team 29/10/2021

A billionaire in the race of not earning but giving.

Azim Premji is one of the revered business tycoons of India. He is an engineer, investor and philanthropist who founded one of the largest IT-software companies in India- Wipro Limited. According to Forbes, his net worth stood at about Rs 817.5 billion and ranked 18 in India’s richest person list.

From Stanford to Indian soil

At the young age of 21, Azim Premji returned to India on the death of his father and handled Wipro, which was originally engaged in the cooking oil business. It was then called ‘Western Indian Vegetable Products’. Eventually, the company diversified into various businesses, until in the 1980s when Azim Premji recognized the emerging IT business in India. As IBM withdrew its operations, Wipro found itself a huge opportunity to explore in those times.

The making of Wipro

Originally Wipro entered into the manufacturing minicomputers business by collaborating with the American company Sentinel Computer Corporation. But the company turned its focus on software making. The company witnessed tremendous growth during 1998-2003. The stock price rallied like never before making Azim Premji one of the richest persons in India. Today, Wipro has become a Rs 3.6 lakh crore company by market cap and about Rs 62,000 crore revenue-generating giant.

Billionaire in donation list: Philanthropist for a reason

Over time, Azim Premji is not being recognized as a mere billionaire but as a billionaire philanthropist. He has been recognized by Forbes as the richest philanthropist outside of the US. According to Hurun List, he retained the top spot in philanthropy in India and is known as ‘India’s most generous’, who has donated about Rs 27 crore per day in the last year.

At the age of 76, Azim Premji has truly been a remarkable personality of India. His generous attitude towards charity has won the hearts of millions.

Technical Analysis: Stocks depicting death crossover in October

Technical Analysis: Stocks depicting death crossover in October
by 5paisa Research Team 29/10/2021

Death crossover demands reviewing the stocks and taking appropriate actions. Here is the list of stocks having death crossover this month.

Today, October 29, 2021, is the last trading session of the month. The second half of October 2021 was not as enticing as the first half. In the first half of the month, markets soared around 7%, whereas in the second half it shed almost 80% of the gains made in the first half. Though it took good support at its 50-Day Exponential Moving Average (EMA), it is still trading below its 20-Day EMA. In such a case, it does make sense to look at stocks depicting death crossover.

The death crossover is nothing but a technical chart pattern that suggests a potential sell-off. The death crossover is witnessed when a stock’s short-term moving average crosses its long-term moving average from above. Usually, traders look at a negative crossover of 50-Day Moving Average (DMA) and 200-DMA.
