Retirement Planning
by 5paisa Research Team 29/09/2021

 What is Retirement Planning? 

Retirement Planning is one area of planning that deserves a closer look, and hence everyone should be looking at effective ways to plan well to enjoy the sunset years of life. 
Presently, financial planning has become one of the essential aspects of an individual’s life as it helps in achieving long term as well as short term goals.  

Financial planning provides direction and meaning to your financial decisions. It allows you to understand how each financial decision you make affects other areas of life. By viewing each financial decision as part of a whole, you can consider the short term as well as long term effects on your life goals. A financial plan includes four components such as insurance planning, retirement planning, investment planning and lastly tax planning. One of the important components is retirement planning which is ignored by the majority of people.  

Retirement planning is extremely critical because the quality of life for a large part of later years depends on the kind of retirement planning undertaken.  

Now the question arises, what is retirement planning? The answer to this question is, retirement planning is the process of undertaking a financial plan to afford one’s sunset years of life. This means the process of saving and building up a corpus that is invested in various asset classes that will result in income and earnings for the individual over some time. This income and earnings you will earn during retirement will take care of the fall in receipts as one ceases to work and earn on a full-time basis after retirement.  

Key features of retirement planning:  

  • Set objectives for the time of retirement.  

  • Identify the amount of funds required during retirement when your regular income will get ceased.  

  • Reserve funds for specific purposes. 

  • Make sure that funds reserved are targeted at specific areas of investment.  

  • The ultimate goal is that the invested funds should achieve the initial objectives.  

  • Monitoring of plan at regular intervals.  

  • Modify or alter the plan if conditions require it and it is off track.

Sahajanand joins the queue of medtech companies eyeing IPO in India

by 5paisa Research Team 29/09/2021

Sahajanand Medical Technologies Ltd, which designs, develops, manufactures and markets vascular devices globally, has filed its documents with the capital markets regulator to float its initial public offering.

Mumbai-headquartered Sahajanand joins Healthium MedTech (formerly Sutures India), which had previously filed a draft red herring prospectus with SEBI for an IPO.

The two companies are prominent players in the medical devices and consumables space and would look to add more diversity in the subsectors for investors looking to bet on healthcare companies.

Notably, both the companies already count private equity investors, who are looking to sell part of their stakes through the respective IPOs.

Sahajanand, which claims a strong market share in the drug eluting stent market in India, is looking at an IPO of about Rs 1,500 crore. Of this, Rs 410 crore will go into the company through a fresh issue of shares and the rest will go to the selling shareholders including two private equity firms.

The company intends to use the money it raises in the IPO to retire debt (Rs 255 crore) and another Rs 40 crore for working capital needs.

Sahajanand Medical's business

The company was founded by Dhirajlal Kotadia in 2001. It claims it has grown from around a fifth of the total to grab close to one-third of the market share in terms of volumes for stents in India.

Citing a report by Frost & Sullivan, the company said it is among the top five companies in terms of market share by sales volume of drug eluting stent in Germany, Netherlands, Italy and Poland as of March 31.

It has a direct and distributor sales presence in more than 69 countries, including direct presence in countries such as Germany, Poland, Spain, France, the UK and Brazil.

Currently, it offers products that are used in interventional cardiology, structural heart therapy and peripheral intervention. Interventional cardiology products include devices used for the treatment of blockages in heart vessels (coronary artery disease), such as coronary stents and catheters.

Structural heart therapy devices such as transcatheter aortic valve implants are used to treat abnormalities in the tissues, walls, and valves of the heart. Peripheral intervention devices such as renal stents are used for treatment of blockages in the blood vessels other than those of the heart.

Sahajanand Medical's financials

The company’s revenue rose from Rs 326 crore in 2018-19 to Rs 588.5 crore for 2020-21. However, its margins have come under pressure. Its operating profit has slid in the recent past due to a rise in legal and professional expenses, sales and marketing expenditure, and finance costs.

Exceptional items such as provisions for GST input tax credit and costs related to a phishing attack pushed the company into the red. It posted a net loss of Rs 86 crore for 2020-21 as against a net profit of Rs 13.6 crore and Rs 33 crore for the previous two years.

Varun Beverages back in growth mode, stock still has upside left after doubling

by 5paisa Research Team 29/09/2021

Varun Beverages Ltd (VBL), PepsiCo Inc.’s exclusive bottler in India, will soon be looking to expand its operations into relatively under-penetrated markets and integrate its southern and western territories in the country. 

The company is also looking to expand its international operations and build distribution channels for other Pepsi brands, according to a report by IIFL Securities Ltd.

Citing senior VBL executives, IIFL Securities said the Jaipuria family-owned bottling company is looking to scale up operations in states like Bihar and Jharkhand.

“Per-capita consumption in under-penetrated territories such as Bihar and Jharkhand is one-third of the national average and has significant potential to grow via market-development efforts,” the report said. 

VBL is also looking beyond Pepsi and build its distribution channels for other brands including Tropicana juices and more recently launched ones like Mountain Dew Ice and Sting. 

Interestingly, VBL’s bid to focus more on Tropicana comes even as PepsiCo is reportedly looking to sell the brand along with other juice brands for $3.3 billion to a joint venture majority owned by private equity firm PAI Partners.

Varun Beverages eyes foreign shores

Apart from looking for growth prospects within India, VBL is also looking to raise PepsiCo’s market share across countries as diverse as Nepal and Zimbabwe, where the beverage company already controls 45% and 55% of the market, respectively. VBL is also looking to expand its presence in Morocco. 

“In Morocco, Pepsi’s mkt share is about 14% and the company has been constrained by the non-compete agreement for water as well as the foreign language (French and Arabic) barrier. However, it now has the rights for water and would focus on expanding market share,” the report said. 

VBL executives also say that it could look at expanding to more English-speaking countries across Asia and Africa, provided there is little political and currency volatility risks.

Higher capex

As the bottler eyes expansion across India and other regions, VBL executives say the company’s capital expenditure for the year 2022 will be higher than depreciation. 

A significant proportion of this rise will come on account of VBL looking to add a new bottling plant in Bihar as well as invest in PET capacities. 

The company will also have to significantly ramp up its investment towards backward integration, as it looks to combine its southern and western operations. 

VBL is one of PepsiCo’s biggest franchisees outside of the US. The company was set up in 1995. It currently operates across 27 Indian states and several countries including Nepal, Sri Lanka, Morocco, Zambia and Zimbabwe, where, like India, it is PepsiCo’s exclusive bottler.  

VBL gets 74.2% of its business from India, 13.3% comes from Zambia and Zimbabwe, and 5% each from Morocco and Nepal. Sri Lanka generates just over 2% of the company’s revenue. 

While carbonated beverages make up for a lion’s share of the company’s business, 21% of its revenue comes from packaged water and 6% from non-carbonated beverages.

Outlook for Varun Beverages

The Covid-19 pandemic dampened the company’s performance in the past two years, but its management is now confident of volumes bouncing back as the situation normalises.

Indeed, the company’s revenue fell 9.5% in calendar year 2020 to Rs 6,450 crore from Rs 7,129.6 crore the year before. Its EBITDA margin shrank to 18.6% in 2020 from 20.3% in 2019 while profit after tax dropped to Rs 329 crore from Rs 469 crore. But the company is back on the growth path, IIFL Securities said.

According to the IIFL report, Varun Beverages is likely to record a 60% jump in profit after tax to Rs 634 crore in 2021 and a 55% increase next year. The EBITDA margin is expected to expand to 19.3% this year and to 21.1% next year.

IIFL retains a “buy” call on the Varun Beverages stock, with a target price of Rs 1,050 apiece over the next one year. That’s a 13% upside on the company’s current market price. The shares have already more than doubled over the past year.
