Motilal Oswal has given Neutral recommendation for Tata Steel with a target price of Rs. 1235 in its research report issued on Jan 31, 2022

Motilal Oswal’s research report on Tata Steel

Tata Steel Long Products (TSLP) has acquired the government’s 93.71% stake in Neelachal Ispat Nigam (NINL) for INR121b. The deal implies an EV of INR129b (at 100% stake) for the 100mt iron ore mine and the land parcel of 2,500 acres. As the NINL plant is a short distance away from Tata Steel’s Kalinganagar plant, the two plants will have a certain level of operational synergies. The plan going forward: The management plans to set up a greenfield long steel products plant of 4.5mt capacity on NINL’s land. This implies that the existing inefficient 1mt mini blast furnace (MBF) and ancillary equipment is likely to be taken out to make way for the new plant.

Outlook

We cut our consolidated FY22E/FY23E EBITDA estimate by 10.8%/7.3%, raise our net debt assumption to factor in: a) the current acquisition and b) slowdown in steel cycle, with rising coking coal costs. We value Tata Steel on a SoTP basis at INR1,235 (from INR1,565 earlier). Key risk to our forecast is a slowdown in China.
