Royal Ceramics is the market leader in the local tile and sanitary ware segments, with a market share of c.45%. CAL expects FY13-15E profitability to grow at a c.12% Cagr (2013-15E) driven by market share gains (45% in FY13 to 51% in FY16E) from higher cost imports, growth in non-governmental construction (FY12-15E Cagr of c.2%) and their ability to effectively turnaround and incorporate loss making companies into the Group. However, escalating energy prices (c. 30%), which constitute c.40% of total costs in FY12, could have detrimental effects on RCLs tile segment profitability if energy prices are increased by 20% (c.17% decline in profitability). CALs SOTP valuation is LKR 128, an upside of 31% (71% of the value is from its core business). At current price levels (LKR 98; -c.41% since Jan 2012), the decline in FY13E earnings and probable energy hikes have been factored in, and an investor will be getting RCLs associates for free. BUY Attractive valuations (5.9x PER & 31% discount to fair value) - CAL expects a c.5% growth in sales volumes in FY14E resulting from market share gains from tile importers (c.35% of the market) as the 35% cess imposed on imported tiles from Dec 2012 and LKR depreciation (15% since Mar 2012) raised imported tile prices. Further, rising hotel and apartment construction projects may drive non-governmental construction (c.2%p.a.) supporting volume growth. CAL expects RCLs overall profitability to grow at a c.12% Cagr 2013-2015E. RCLs 9MFY13 profits came in 21% lower at LKR1.2bn as a result of a c.30% increase in energy prices, reduced volumes (-c.5% YoY) and higher interest rates (+263bps since February 12) that decreased tile segment profitability. CAL expects RCL to end FY13 on a negative note with a 17% profitability decline (3% decline in recurring profits) and profits to reverse post FY13 at a c.12% Cagr (2013-15E). Based on a DCF valuation, RCLs fair value is LKR 128 (upside of 31%), trading on a FY14E PER of 5.9x, P/BV of 1.1x and an EV/EBITDA of 4.4x. Possibility of another energy hike and rising interest rates remains a challenge for RCL Energy costs constitute c.40% of cost of sales. In turn, a 20% surge in energy prices would erode overall profitability by 17%, if this isnt matched by a c.7% corresponding increase in tile prices. During 2012, energy prices increased 30% and RCL was able to increase prices by 15%. In addition, higher interest rates would also affect profitabilty as RCLs gearing currently stands at 43% (D/E) and interest coverage at 3.8x. RCLs 9MFY13 finance costs grew 113% to LKR468mn due to higher interest rates (263 bps since February 2012) and additional borrowing (+LKR 1.17bn). CALs base case valuations factor

in a c.15% increase in energy prices, a retail price increase of 8% and a 5% increase in volumes for FY14E, leading to overall profits growing 14% YoY to LKR1.9bn. Backing of a strong entrepreneur - RCLs strategy on diversification may hold in their favour. RCL increased its stake in LB Finance to 26% in FY13 which resulted in the associate stake contributing LKR 435mn (37%) to overall profits in 9MFY13. In recent times, RCL has been on an acquisition drive, having acquired subsidiary, Asia Siyaka (commodity trader), Colorbrite (paint manufacturer) and obtaining an associate stake in Delmage (F&B). Historically, the management has had a proven track record in identifying and acquiring underperforming businesses and effecting successful turnarounds, such as Hayleys Plc, which has increased profitablity at a Cagr of c.101% (FY09-12) and Amaya leisure which has increased profitability at a Cagr of c.107% (FY10-12). Furthermore, RCLs FY14E Free cashflow to Cash intrerest expense coverage stands at 3x compared to industry avg. of 2.5x, indicating that RCL could raise an additional LKR 547mn in debt if it were to finance further acquisitions. With no major capex required for plant expansion in its core business (capacity increased by c.48% FY11-13), RCL may eye possible opportunities for further diversification. CAL adds a LKR20/share to the base DCF value of LKR97/share (tile + bathware + commodity trading + paints) for RCLs stake in LB Finance, a LKR6/share for their stake in Delmage and LKR5/share for RCLs investment portfolio thereby providing an overall DCF Value of 128/share.
