Motilal Oswal’s research report on BPCL
Reported GRM at USD9.7/bbl came higher than our estimates while implied marketing margin at INR4.1/lit came below our estimates. Refining throughput (+11% QoQ) and marketing sales volumes (+13% QoQ) were in line with our estimates, led by demand recovery in the aftermath of the second COVID wave. Technical debottlenecking is underway at the company’s Propylene derivatives petrochemical project (PDPP) plant in Kochi, and the management expects the three units to contribute starting 4QFY22. BPCL has decided to discontinue its plans for the Polyols plant due to escalating costs and unattractive IRR. Singapore GRM improved QoQ in 3QFY22, led by an improvement in gasoline, ATF, and naphtha cracks. It further stands at an average of USD6/bbl in Jan’22 as demand continued to outweigh supply. Net debt at end-9MFY22 for standalone stood at INR99b (INR199b at end-FY21), while consolidated came in at INR530b. The company has announced a second interim dividend of INR5/share. – There is no clear calendar of events; although, the management highlighted that the privatization has not happened thus far in FY22 and could be delayed to FY23.
The stock is trading at 1.4x FY24E P/BV, and we value it on 1.7x FY24E P/BV to arrive at Target Price of INR468.
