JK Lakshmi Cement
Capacity expansion with favourable macro environment to drive earnings
JK Lakshmi Cement is well placed to ride the improving demand (and price) environment in the northern and western regions of the country with the commissioning of additional capacity of close to 1.6 million tonne, taking its operational cement capacity to 6.9 million tonne. With the additional capacity in place, in Q4 the company would not only sustain the healthy double-digit volume growth seen in Q3 but also get a boost from the recent hike of Rs20-25 per bag of cement in its key markets (especially in the north). Thus, we expect a considerable improvement in its performance in Q4FY2014. With a revival expected in the economy, we estimate the earnings of the company would grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 33% over FY2014-16. The company is trading at 4.8x EV/EBITDA and $46 EV/tonne on FY2016 estimates which is higher than its one-year historical average multiple of 4x EV/EBITDA and $43 EV/tonne. Given the recent rally in cement stocks, it would be advisable to accumulate JK Lakshmi Cement on declines with a medium-term price target of Rs110.
