Geojit’s research report on Thermax
Thermax Ltd (TMX) is a leading energy and environment solutions provider. They offer integrated innovative solutions in the areas of heating, cooling, power, water & waste management, air pollution control and chemicals. TMX reported a robust revenue growth of 57% YoY during the quarter, led by strong execution in Energy (61% YoY) and Environment (62% YoY), while the Chemical segment grew by 22% YoY. However, due to higher commodity prices and the execution of legacy FGD order in Environment segment, EBITDA margin fell by 19bps YoY to 5.8%. Q1FY23 order book grew by 56% YoY (which is 1.4x TTM revenue), supported by 36% YoY growth in new orders. The company expects a gradual recovery in the margin profile due to a favourable mix in the chemical segment and a correction in commodity prices.
