Outlook & Valuation IGL has guided for a volume growth of 20% to 25% for FY12 along with a capex of INR 20 bn over the next three years. IGL plans to spend this amount to expand the infrastructure for compressed natural gas (CNG) and piped natural gas (PNG). At CMP INR 342, the company is trading at PE multiples of 16x its FY12e earnings. Considering the higher demand for the gas going forward and company’s capex to capture the volume growth, we recommend HOLD on the stock with a price target of INR 350.
