Outlook and Valuation
Godawari Power’s Q1FY13 results were in-line with their expectations with strong performance on the top-line and bottom-line front. GPIL has also planned to raise funds by preferential issue to promoters, which will be used for the ongoing capital expenditure of GPIL and its subsidiaries (Reliance Securities has factored this in their numbers). Going forward, Reliance Securities anticipates good growth in the top-line due to increasing higher mining output with capacity utilizations in pellets (for both GPIL and Ardent Steel) to be the key drivers, which will further aid GPIL’s profitability. They expect GPIL to report Net Sales CAGR of ~18% and Net Profit CAGR of ~26% over FY12-14E, owing to the expected strong volume growth, increase in realizations and high-priced value-added sales. At the CMP of Rs130, the stock is trading at a P/E of 3.7x and 3.6x its FY13E and FY14E EPS respectively. Reliance Securities maintains their Buy recommendation on Godawari Power with a target price of Rs157.
