Accounts for around 13% of the Indian edible oil Consumption and enjoys a 20% market share in branded packaged edible oil segment...

The Company currently accounts for around 13% of the Indian edible oil Consumption and enjoys a 20% market share in branded packaged edible oil segment which has an average EBITDA margins of 6.5% ,higher then the margins for bulk manufacturing as well as trading. The Companies branded Oil segment has grown at a CAGR of 28% over a period of 6 years with brand Nutrela having a 13% market share in the entire branded products sale.Ruchi is an undisputed leader in the branded edible oil category with brands like Nutrela Soyumn -Soyabean Oil, Ruchi Gold Palmolein Oil, Sunrich Sunflower Oil, Mandap-Mustard Oil. Soyabean oil and Palm oil are the two major edible oils in the branded segment contributing 57% and 33% respectively to the sales of branded edible oil category. Currently the packaged edible oil consumption is only about 20% of the total 12.5 million tonne of domestic consumption and with growing quality consciousness and plummeting price differences between packaged and non-packaged edible oils, the packaged edible oil sector will capture 50% of the market share within three years. The packaged edible oil industry is growing at 10% annually and half of the market will be controlled by packaged oil manufactures within three years. In view of the growing demand of branded edible oils and increase in consumption of oil to 21.3 mln tonnes by 2015, Ruchi which is enjoying a virtual leadership is well poised to capitalize the opportunity in the branded edible oil segment.

Entering into low cost high margin mustard oil segment

Indian vegetable oil economy is world's third largest after USA and China . Three oilseeds - Groundnut, Soybean and Rapeseed/ Mustard - together account for over 80 per cent of aggregate cultivated oilseeds output. Mustard seed alone contributes Rs.12,000crs turnover out of Rs.80,000crs oilseed based domestic turnover.


Ruchi Soya Industries Ltd

Expects a turnover of ~ Rs1,500 to Rs 2,000 crs which will add another Rs 120 crs to its EBITDA...

With steady growth in population and personal income, Indian per capita consumption of edible oil has been growing steadily. However, oilseeds output and in turn, vegetable oil production have been trailing consumption growth, necessitating imports to meet supply shortfall. Though Mustard plants grow all over the world, their cultivation is mainly confined to India, China, Canada, Germany, France, Australia and the United States. India is the third largest mustard seed producer in the world, with 12 per cent of world's total production grown domestically and crop accounts for nearly one-third of the oil produced in India, making it the country's second most important edible oil after groundnut. Considering the growth of the domestic oil consumption in edible oils such as Mustard, Cottonseed and Rice bran, the company has aggressive plans to expand in the higher margins lower capital cost segment for business growth and more specifically the retail segment. Mustard suffers less from the international competition and it is not likely to be affected by the imports. Also the operations for mustard are less technology oriented. The margins are higher (8% EBITDA margin) because the price realization of the mustard is higher than say palm and soya. Mustard oil segment is growing at a rate of 20% and considering a 15% market share of the Mustard oil industry Ruchi expects a turnover of ~ Rs1,500 to Rs 2,000 crs which will add another Rs 120 crs to its EBITDA . Hence on a long term basis the highly profitable mustard oil segment shall propel the profitability of the Company and improve the earnings of the Company.

India is one of the largest consumer importers of edible oil in the world, next to China and US. Being the largest importer of palm oil, Ruchi is considering on the vertical integration of its palm plantation as part of its strategic move because it is absolutely critical in the years to come to maintain its leadership position in the domestic markets in edible palm oil segment. It is also eyeing an opportunity at setting up Greenfield palm plantations in Indonesia. This will also prove as a shield against the rising palm oil prices.
Acquiring palm plantations will significantly reduce the procurement cost of the raw material and thereby increase its profitability...

Currently the edible oil imports are around 4.5 to 5 million tons of which palm oil has got more than 60% market share and hence acquiring palm plantations will significantly reduce the procurement cost of the raw material and thereby increase its profitability.

It is also considering to enter into Jatropha plantations and bio-fuel business and effectively utilize its expertise in agri-crushing business.

The total production of 5 major oil seeds is expected to decline in 2007 -08 over last year by 4 %. Of these crops, the world Soya production is likely to go down from 236 million Tons in 2006-07 to 221million Tons in 2007-08 (a fall of 6.4%). The Gross Capital Formation (GCF) in agriculture as a proportion of GDP in the agriculture sector has improved to 12.5% for FY 06-07 from a low of 10.2% in 03-04. With a view to give a boost to the farming sector which is considered as a quintessential to the growth of the Indian economy the target for GCF has been raised to 16% during the Eleventh plan to achieve a growth rate of 4% from the current growth rate of 1.8% with a target GDP growth rate of 10%. In a move to curb the rising inflation which has risen to the highest the Government of India has scrapped the import duty on crude soybean and palm oil, and lowered the levy on refined edible oil to 7.5 percent on March 31'08. India, imports almost half the vegetable oil it needs from overseas.

Ruchi Soya Industries Ltd

Outlook & Valuations

CMP : Rs 86 (1/7/2008) Target Price : Rs 131

Ruchi's deliberate shift towards manufacturing products backed by buoyancy in consumption of branded edible oils and other health products, higher operating efficiencies arising from consolidation have helped the Company in demonstrating and delivering stable and improved financial performances for past few years. The Company has already installed its own 30.3 MW wind power plant at an approximate cost of Rs 100 crs which will reduce the operational costs of the company and increase its overall profitability. We are of the view that Ruchi is very well poised for a even higher growth trajectory in the next 2-3 years as the company's profitablitiy is expected to get a further boost on account of its foray into new and more profitable business segments like mustard oil, forward and backward integration into Jatropha and Palm plantation and a substantial ramp up in its installed capacity by another 1 million tonnes during FY08-FY11. Also the Unchanged tariff value and decreasing duty will benefit importers like Ruchi Soya by propelling their topline and the profitability.

In the current scenario of more then 50% of the players having an output of less then 60 MT/day with a capacity utilization of less then 30% and the absence of major integrated players, Ruchi's all around presence augurs well to capitalize on the 2300 crs untapped Indian branded edible oil industry. Ruchi's financial performance has remained very impressive with revenues growing at a CAGR of 22% over the last 6 years with PAT growing at a CAGR of 25% during the same period whereas its branded sales have recorded a CAGR of 28%. We expect the Company's topline to grow at a CAGR of 15% and the bottomline to grow at a CAGR of 29% for FY 08-FY10 For the quarter ended March,08 Net profit of the Company rose 35.44% to Rs 37.72 crore as against Rs 27.85 crore during the previous quarter ended March 2007 whereas during the same period Sales rose 27.03% to



Ruchi Soya Industries Ltd

Rs 3480.64 crore as against Rs 2740.12 crore during the previous quarter ended March 2007. For the full year ended March 2008, net profit rose by 56.28% to Rs 157.36 crore in the year as against Rs 100.69 crore during the previous year ended March 2007 and Sales rose 27.53% to Rs 10999.82 crore as against Rs 8625.48 crore during the previous year ended March 2007. At the CMP of Rs. 86 stock is trading at a P/E of 11.9x, 10.1x and 7.20 x discounting its FY08E, FY09E and FY10E earnings respectively. On EV/EBIDTA basis, stock is trading at 7.4x, 5.4x and 4.0 x its EBITDA for FY08E, FY09E and FY10E respectively. The rising demand for edibleoil, customers preference for branded products, firm demand and price scenario of soya meal in the international markets shall help Ruchi in scaling new highs and hence we recommend a Buy on the stock with a 12-15 month price target of Rs. 131 based on 11 x FY 10E. Our target price offers a potential return of 52% on the CMP.
