KR Choksey’s research report on The Ramco Cements
In Q3FY22, Ramco Cement’s revenue rose 15.5% YoY and 4.0% QoQ to INR 15,525 mn, beating our estimate by 1.5%. Weak demand had persisted during the quarter due to monsoons, restrictions etc. EBITDA dropped 42.5% YoY and 41.3% QoQ to INR 2,289 mn. EBITDA margin contracted by 1488 bps YoY/1136 bps QoQ to 14.7% in Q3FY22 due to sharp increase in raw material prices. Adj. Pat for the quarter declined 63.1% YoY and 63.2% QoQ to INR 757 mn. The margins also contracted by 1039 bps YoY and 889 bps QoQ to 4.9% in Q3FY22.
At a CMP of INR 861, we are optimistic about the company’s growth prospects and apply an EV/EBITDA multiple of 14.5x to FY24E EBITDA, which yields a target price of INR 1,019 per share (v/s previous TP of INR 1,176 per share), an upside of 18.4% over the CMP. Accordingly, we maintain our ‘BUY’ rating on the shares of Ramco Cements.
