Khambatta Securities’ research report on Lancer Container Lines

A shipping agency and logistics solution provider, Lancer’s core business is liner service. As a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), the company does not own or operate any ship but acts as a carrier by contracting vessels for shipping its containers. Lancer operates an asset-light business with a mix of 10,000 owned and leased containers, offering services to 74 ports as well as inland destinations through 14 offices in India and a subsidiary in Dubai, covering more than 30 countries. The company’s principal geographies of operations include the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, Gulf, Europe and the Mediterranean. Lancer plans to expand its container fleet by 25% to 30% (2,500 to 3,000 TEU) by the end of FY22. Management looks to penetrate into new geographies, mainly covering the European region. To this end, the company has initiated the process of setting up a branch in the UK as it also seeks to explore the Mediterranean market more aggressively.

Outlook

Lancer’s revenue growth will be driven by capacity addition and expansion into new geographies over the next couple of years. The Lancer stock currently trades at an attractive forward P/E level of 15.6x FY24E EPS. Assigning a target multiple of 20.0x FY24E EPS, our valuation generates a price target of Rs 306, informing an upside potential of 28%, as we initiate coverage on Lancer with a BUY rating.
