    Gandhar Oil Refinery (India) IPO Strengths:

    • The global white oil market is oligopolistic with a few players highly active in the market and the top 10 players account for 40-45% of the global white oil market. Gandhar Oil Refinery Limited was India’s largest manufacturer of white oils by revenue in the Financial Year 2022, including domestic and overseas sales, and was one of the top five players globally in terms of market share in the calendar year 2021.

    • Gandhar Oil Refinery Limited catered to an extensive customer base of 3,529 Indian and global companies during the Financial Year 2022. The company’s customers in the PHPO division include P&G, Unilever, Marico, Emami, Bajaj Consumer Care, Encube, Patanjali Ayurved, Dabur, Amrutanjan Healthcare, Supreme Petrochem, and other leading Indian manufacturers of pharmaceutical products. The company manufactures lubricant oils for Gulf Oil, Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone, and other users of industrial machines and equipment. The customers for the PIO division include Toshiba Transmission and Distribution Systems (India) and other leading manufacturers of transformers and power distribution and transmission companies. The company has long-standing relationships with several of its key customers and has been able to maintain high customer loyalty. The percentage of customers placing repeat orders in the quarter that ended June 30, 2022 and Financial Years 2022, 2021, and 2020 was 87.38%, 68.86%, 66.37% and 59.30% respectively.

    • One of Gandhar Oil Refinery Limited’s business strengths lies in its global supplier base which comprises some of the world’s largest global and Indian oil companies. The company procures a majority of its raw material from South Korea and the Gulf Co-operation Council Region (“GCC Region”). The key suppliers in these regions include SK Lubricants, S-Oil, GS Caltex and other global base oil suppliers.

    • Gandhar Oil Refinery Limited is committed to providing high-quality R&D services to meet its customers’ requirements and accordingly aims to continue to strengthen its manufacturing and product development capabilities and collaborate with the customers to meet the growing demand for these specialized end-products.

    • The specialty oil business is capital-intensive in nature and involves inherent complexities in terms of technology, hazard management, and regulations. Scale, size, quality and consistency are crucial factors for manufacturers in the specialty oils industry. Given the nature of the industry as well the stringent quality standards applicable to various products in the end-industries to which the company caters, it is difficult for new entrants to replicate the quality, scale, and business operations.

    • Gandhar Oil Refinery Limited has a track record of consistent financial performance, which positions it for future growth and diversification. The company’s RoE of 39.4% in the Financial Year 2022 was the highest among selected specialty oil and specialty chemical peers according to the CRISIL Report. The capital efficiency has improved, highlighted by the improvement in RoCE from 27.63% in 220 the Financial Year 2020 to 46.99% in the Financial Year 2022 and, according to the CRISIL Report, is the highest among selected specialty oil and specialty chemical peers in the Financial Year 2022.

    Gandhar Oil Refinery (India) IPO Risk Factors:

    • Gandhar Oil Refinery Limited depends significantly on its personal care, health care, and performance oil business division, and downturns in the industries addressed by this business division or an inability to manage sales by the business division effectively leading to any reduction in revenue from this division could adversely affect the business, financial condition, and results of operations.

    • Delays, interruptions, or reductions in the supply of raw materials to manufacture the products and abrupt fluctuations in the prices of the raw materials may adversely affect the business, results of operation, financial condition, and cash flows.

    • Gandhar Oil Refinery Limited’s overall business and the demand for the products is dependent on the end industries in which the products are used and any decline in the demand for the customers’ end products could have an adverse impact on the business, results of operations, cash flows and financial condition

    • Gandhar Oil Refinery Limited does not have long-term agreements with its customers. If a significant number of the customers choose not to place purchase orders with the Company on a regular basis or choose to terminate the contracts, business, financial condition, and results of operations may be adversely affected.

    • Gandhar Oil Refinery Limited relies on Parekh Bulk Carriers, a member of the Promoter Group and other third-party transporters to transport raw materials for the products to the manufacturing facilities and the products to the depots and customers, and any disruption in the transportation arrangements or increases in transportation costs may adversely affect the business, results of operations and financial condition.
