ICRA Credit Perspective

The Indure Private Limited

Credit Strengths
Established position in the Ash Handling Systems for more than three decades, with the company being one of the leading players in terms of the number of systems installed. Diversification into EPC of power plants is expected to add significantly to revenue growth. During FY11, the company has also diversified into coal handling plants (CHP). Strong parentage as the Desein group is one of the leading consultancy in the domestic power sector since the last 42 years with a global presence, having executed more than 29,000 MW capacity of Coal/Lignite/Diesel/Gas based combined cycle plants. Huge potential for thermal power projects development in India offers significant growth opportunity. Healthy order book position of Rs 3402 crore as on 15th March 2011. Although the topline has remained stable, slight improvement in operating/net margins and cash accruals backed by increased order book and economies of scale. Improvement in accretions and liquidity augur well for the capital structure of the company, with the gearing declining from 1.13 times to 0.69 times as on March 31, 10. Expected equity infusion by 3i to the tune of Rs 150 crore in Indure, expected to augur well for the capital structure and liquidity position of the company.

Credit Concerns
Slowdown in power sector reforms could adversely impact the revenue and profitability. Strong competitive pressures, especially in the EPC business, going forward. Most contracts are of fixed price nature which exposes the company to movement in raw material prices.

Rating Rationale
The ratings factor in Indures established position and long track record in imple mentation of ash handling systems and balance of plant (BOP) systems for thermal power plants which coupled with technical and cost competitiveness has resulted in a strong and reputed client base. This coupled with the buoyant outlook for thermal power generation projects has resulted in a healthy order book position which in turn would result in a sustenance of the current strong revenue and profit trends. The ratings also derive support from the improvement in gearing, which declined from 1.13 times as on March 31,2009 to 0.69 times as on March 31, 2010 as well as satisfactory liquidity as measured by adequate unutilized bank limits. The ratings are however constrained by strong competitive pressures from both domestic and global players and a vulnerability of the companys margins to volatility in prices of key raw materials. The companys business will also remain vulnerable to risks of increased working capital requirements - ability to fund growth in a prudent manner will thus remain a key rating sensitivity. Further, while the order book position is strong, any slowdown in project execution by customers because of factors such as delays in clearances may adversely impact turnover and profits. The Indure Private Limited (IPL) is engaged in undertaking Ash Handling Plant contracts on turnkey basis involving designing, engineering, manufacturing, installation & commissioning and operation and maintenance for Ash Handling Plants.

be added by 2012 under the power ministrys eleventh plan, which is expected to translate into huge potential demand for thermal power plant equipment manufacturers (including ash handling systems) and related engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services. Further, rising capital expenditure in the industrial sector have also given impetus to demand for power plant equipments including ash handling systems. The number of thermal plants to be executed in 11th Plan is about 153 in number1. With Thermal projects being the mainstay of the capacity addition during the Eleventh Plan, it is expected to translate into a significant requirement of BoP packages across the country. IPL commands approximately seventy percent of the market share for fly ash disposal systems installed in the country. The Company has been associated with installation of over 220 ash handling plants in India & abroad catering to a total generating capacity of more than 70,000 MW (representing approximately 70% of the total thermal capacity of 99378 MW in the country). This includes successful execution of various ash handling systems for more than 150 units of 210/250/5001700 MW capacity throughout the country and abroad. Further, the industry currently comprises of only 9-10 manufacturers. Healthy order book flow has resulted in healthy revenue growth over the last few years. The net sales of the company has grown from Rs 1372.1 million in FY05 to Rs 7285.7 million in FY09 (CAGR of 52%). However, during FY10, the operating income has remained stagnant with almost 50% share of these revenues from EPC business where in the company has relatively low margins on account of intense competition coupled with the its new entrance into the segment. Nonetheless, the company has been able to secure a slight improvement in its operating margins driven by economies of scale and favourable movements in the prices of main raw materials used by the company during the year (i.e steel, ferro alloys etc). As a result of increase in operating margins and lower interest charges, the net margins have also risen to 3.81% in FY10 from 3.01% in FY09. For 9M FY11, the company has already executed orders worth Rs 550 crore till Feb2011. Further, during FY2011 the company has secured two orders worth Rs 470 crore in coal handling plants which is a relatively high margin business like AHS and is expected to boost the revenues and profitability of the company FY12 onwards. Also, the liquidity position as measured by unutilized bank limits remains adequate. The company has also generated positive cash from operations (adjusted for working capital changes) in the last year. Further, healthy growth in accretions together with decline in WC requirements has led to improvement in gearing from 1.13 to 0.69 times. Subsequently, the NCA/TD has also increased significantly from 38% to 55% during FY10, with the interest coverage indicators also showing improvement.
