Sharekhan’s research report on Sumitomo Chemical India

Strong parentage offers competitive edge in terms of technical capabilities, strong distribution and R&D support would drive 12% CAGR in revenue and a 291 bps rise in margins over FY21E-FY23E. Merger with Excel Crop Care (ECCL) has strengthened generic product portfolio and geographical reach. Leveraging on parent and merger synergies would aid a 21% CAGR in PAT over FY21E-FY23E. Robust balance sheet with net cash (including liquid investment) of Rs. 680 crore and high asset turnover ratio would keep RoE/RoCE high at 24%/32%. We expect SCIL to continue enjoying premium valuation over domestic peers.
