Sharekhan’s research report on Sumitomo Chemical India

High global crop prices would help Sumitomo Chemical India Ltd (SCIL) to hike prices continuously to pass on elevated input costs. Moreover, the focus on high-margin PGRs/Herbicides and further synergies from Excel Crop Care to drive 411bps margin expansion over FY21-24E. SCIL reported a robust 44% y-o-y growth in its export revenue in 9MFY22. We are optimistic that high growth in this segment to sustain given the CRAMs opportunity from parent and high growth in Latin America. We expect SCIL’s revenue, EBITDA and PAT to clock a 13%/21%/21% CAGR over FY21-24E led by robust rise in in exports (revenue share to reach 28-30% by FY24E) and above-industry growth in Indian markets.


We maintain a Buy rating on SCIL with an unchanged PT of Rs. 500 as a massive contract manufacturing opportunity from parent provides superior growth prospects and continue enjoying premium valuation over domestic peers. SCIL is our preferred pick in the agri-input space.
