This is not a buy or sell recommendation.

We are in the process of compiling data sheets of companies that we track so that in future we may use these for buying / selling stocks of such companies. Reason for sharing is hopefully somebody who has more information may get in touch with us or for a healthy debate. We had written about Adi Finechem previously on Nov 2011 are just following it up now Nov 2011 report :

Adi Finechem Date Traded In Face Value CMP EPS (TTM) P/E Market Cap Enterprise Value 52 Week H/L Website Timeline 1985 – Incorporated as H.K. Agro Oil. 1994 – Name changed to H.K. Agrochem 1995 – IPO 2000 – Name changed to H.K.Finechem 2010 – Open offer by group of investors who take management control of the company. 2010 – Name changed to Adi Fincechem 2012 – Bonus 1:5 2013 – Bonus 1:10 : 08-Dec-13 : BSE B (530117) : 10 : 58.5 : 8.93 : 6.55 : 73 Cr : 90.15 Cr : 65.95 / 39.2 :

Since Then If you had 100 shares of Adi Finechem in Nov 2011, you would have had 120 shares in 2011. By the bonus issue in 2013 you would have had 132 shares Nov 2011: 100 shares X Rs 54 = 5400 Dec 2013: 132 shares X Rs 58.5 = 7722 A profit of Rs 2322 which would translate into 43% returns in 2 years. If we included the dividend for the 2 years profit would be Rs 2586 and that would correspond to a 49% return. Not bad I guess ☺ Ok ok the above was the theory part. What did I do actually? I bought the stock and sold most of my positions within a year (after the 1st bonus issue) at a return of 49.5%. This return does not include the dividend and also the short term capital gain that I had to shell out for selling within a year. Reason for selling 1) One of the main reasons I had sold the shares was that one of the products Cardanol / Cardol which they had recently started 2 years ago and which did very well was suddenly shelved in 2012 with no explanation in the annual report. 2) This along with the fact that I was not able to get the raw material and product data per unit pricing in the annual reports. Till 2011 annual reports had the tonnage and prices for the raw material and products, so we could calculate the price / unit and check the pricing data. From 2012 Annual report only the amount was enough to be displayed, thus we could not get the pricing data. I did not try to get the above information from the company. The share was doing well, I was lazy and trigger happy and thus disposed off my position. Recently I was going through some of old stocks and found that Adi Finechem was doing well in the results and thought of checking it out. Below are the updates I thought was relevant.

A stellar board right and that too for a not so popular company with mcap near Rs 73 cr. As much as it is exciting, I am reminded about the erstwhile Satyam and its board and I pretty much brought back to the earth.

Synopsis Company seems to be doing well. Since the new mgmt take over, the sales and profitability has grown very well. The ratios are also becoming better. Dividend and 2 bonus offerings have been the rewards from the new management to the shareholders. Assume that the company and the share price will move steadily without any major moves. Whatever be the case, the company needs to be followed for its improving financials and stellar board. References 1. 2.
