India Cements (ICEM) posted a 53.6% yoy decline in bottom-line to `26cr on account of steep increase in freight costs. However, the performance on the volume front was encouraging with the company posting a 10% yoy growth in sales volume during the quarter aided by healthy demand scenario in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala. OPM down 306bp yoy: ICEM posted a 14.7% yoy growth in top-line to `1,082cr, which was higher than our estimates. The top-line growth was aided by a 10% increase in sales volume during the quarter. The company’s OPM fell by 306bp yoy to 17.8% on account of steep increase in freight costs. The company’s freight cost/tonne rose by 25.6% yoy to `982. Net Plant Realization stood at `3,359/tonne (vs `3,461/tonne in 3QFY2012). Finance costs went up by 9.7% yoy to `82cr. However, there was a reduction in the power and fuel cost/tonne on a sequential basis (higher marginally by 1.3% on a yoy basis) due to decline in imported coal prices and stabilization of Sankar Nagar CPP. Thus, the bottomline fell by 53.6% yoy to `26cr. Outlook and valuation: We expect ICEM’s return ratios to remain subdued due to substantial investments in subsidiaries. At the current market price, though the stock is trading at a low valuation of EV/tonne of US$62 on FY2014E capacity, we believe the same is justified considering the company's unfavorable locational presence. Hence, we maintain our Neutral recommendation on the stock.

Operating performance
During the quarter, ICEM sold 2.42mn tonne of cement, registering a 10% yoy growth. There was healthy demand in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka which led to the relatively strong 10% volume growth. However, net plant realization was down by 2.9% yoy and stood at `3,359/tonne, due to the sharp correction in cement prices in Andhra Pradesh during the quarter and the steep increase in freight costs. The raw-material cost per tonne remained flat on yoy basis. Power and fuel cost per tonne stood at `1,323, up 1.3% yoy. Power and fuel costs increased on account of increase in power tariffs in both Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh. Freight cost per tonne rose by 26.1% yoy to `983 due to increased costs of diesel, and higher railway freight charges. The operating profit per tonne of cement stood at `792 up 8.6% on yoy basis.

ICEM’s subsidiary, Trinetra Cement (Trinetra) posted a flat performance on the volume front and dispatched 0.27mn tonne of cement in 3QFY2013. Trinetra’s EBITDA for the quarter stood at `17cr vs `7cr in 3QFY2012. Its NPR stood at `2,942/tonne vs `2,704/tonne in 3QFY2012.

Performance of other divisions
The company’s IPL franchise, shipping business and the windmill division posted revenues of `9cr, `14.8cr and `2.5cr respectively during the quarter. On the operating front, the IPL franchise posted a loss of `9cr, while the windmill division and the shipping business reported an EBITDA of `8cr and `2cr respectively during the quarter.

Recommendation rationale
Worst plant location compared to all companies in our coverage universe: About 93% of ICEM’s consolidated total capacity is located in Tamil Nadu (TN), Andhra Pradesh (AP) and Rajasthan. As per our estimates, for FY2013, the capacity situation in TN is expected to be slightly better than the other two, as a large part of its excess of 18.1mt can be supplied to Kerala (where the total deficit is expected to be 8.6mt). However, AP is expected to have India's highest indigenous demand supply gap (42mt) and there is no nearby supply-deficit state where the excess output could be sold more economically than other states.

Outlook and valuation
We expect ICEM’s return ratios to remain subdued due to substantial investments in subsidiaries. At the current market price, though the stock is trading at a low valuation of EV/tonne of US$62 on FY2014E capacity, we believe the same is justified considering the company's unfavorable locational presence. Hence, we maintain our Neutral recommendation on the stock.
