Ultratech is there concall said they are market leaders and will always command market premium.
West, South and North are areas which have done well, while in East demand of cement has fallen as housing as seen a degrowth due to rains and Covid.
Coal and Petcock prices nearly doubled in Q2FY22resulting in energy cost rise by 17%.The resulting impact on the company’s operations were partly offset by reduction in power consumption and continuing focus on operational efficiencies. The company expect to commence mining operations at its Bicharpur coal block situated in Madhya Pradesh, during Q3FY22 which will help in reducing the dependence on coal purchases.
Management is quite confident of weathering the storm of increase in price of raw material with its sustainable efficienc
y improvement programs, accompanied by increase in selling price to absorb the increase in costs.
Management said fuel cost is going to increase by $ 10 in third quarter and this is going to be offset by price increase and management feels they are going to maintain there last year EBITDA margin.
Management feels they are going to have 6-8% volume growth in next quarter as demand is very strong in housing sector. They have already increase price by ₹10-15 per bag in different parts and which has not impacted demand and expect further rise in prices in coming days.
Ultratech cement reported a muted set of result which was below the street expectation revenue came in at ₹ 12016 compared to ₹ 10387 last year and PAT came in at ₹1313 compared to ₹1166 crore last year. Ultratech’s 2QFY22 EBITDA at ₹27.15bn (+1% YoY) was near estimates (INR28.1bn) as higher than expected cost inflation/overhead costs offset the benefit of better realisation and higher Other operating Income. For India operations, EBITDA/T (India Ops) was at ₹1320 vs street expectation of ₹ 1350 down INR270/T QoQ, lower INR60/T YoY. In this quarter, volumes remained flat QoQ, up 7% YoY; Pricing fell 2-3% QoQ. During the call, management indicated of improving demand with receding monsoons; ultratech has taken INR10-15/bag price hikes effective early Oct and management feels rising costs would be compensated by increase in prices over coming days; Domestic Coal (17% of fuel mix) availability is impacted and company will switch to International Coal/Petcock for fuel; Cost are expected to remain high amid soaring fuel prices – could see a INR200/t QoQ cost impact in 3Q and higher in 4QFY22/1QFY23. Targeted 19.5MMT expansion is on track and is expected to be completed by FY23 end taking total capacity to 136.25MMT capacity.We expect Cement demand to remain strong, led by the government’s thrust on Infrastructure development and recent improvement in housing demand. Ultratech Cement is in a strong position to gain market share, led by its strong distribution network A strong pipeline of expansion projects and scope for improvement in utilization of existing capacities offers strong growth visibility but cost inflation is going to have a negative impact on margin as coal and fuel pricing are still rising in 3Q and 4Q.At the CMP of ₹7489, Ultratech is trading at PE multiple of 37x. Valuing the company at 34x FY23E EPS, we recommend Hold on Ultratech at CMP of for the Target Price of ₹ 7820.
