GMM Pfaudler hits record high, rallies 52% in 14 days post Q3 results
Posted on 11th February 2020
Shares of GMM Pfaudler rallied 13 per cent to hit an all-time high of Rs 3,285 on the BSE on Tuesday on the back of heavy volumes. The stock surpassed its previous high of Rs 3,048, touched on February 5, 2020.

GMM Pfaudler is a leading supplier of process equipment to the pharmaceutical and chemical industry segments.

The company reported a strong 74 per cent year-on-year (YoY) jump in its consolidated net profit at Rs 21.1 crore for the quarter ended December 2019 (Q3FY20). It had a profit of Rs 12.1 crore in the year-ago quarter. Operating revenue increased by 19 per cent to Rs 156 crore from Rs 131 crore in the corresponding quarter of previous fiscal.

Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (Ebitda) improved significantly by 46 per cent YoY at Rs 30.4 crore, while margins expanded 400 basis points to 20 per cent versus 16 per cent in Q3 of last year. Higher realisations, lower commodity costs, greater operating leverage and more export orders in Q3FY20 expanded the Ebitda margin.

The management said the order book continues to remain healthy on the back of strong demand from the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors. The company will selectively add capacity looking at the robust demand environment. The Company has also laid out a five-year plan with an aim to take the Company to next level of sustainable growth, it said.

With huge capacities added in specialty chemicals and agro, demand for Pfaudler equipment is rising. The glass furnace capacity is a bottleneck; hence, demand is shifting to other operators. Looking at the order pipeline, however, two gas furnaces have been ordered from Japan, which would be commissioned by June 2020. This would help GMM fulfill all potential demand and not allow any diversion of orders, according to analysts at Anand Rathi Share and Stock Brokers.

“On the commissioning of two gas furnaces and management’s keenness for inorganic growth opportunities, we are sure of a bright FY21 as well. The debt-free status, healthy operating cash-flow, with strong prospects and profitability, lead us to retain our 'Buy' rating on the stock,” the brokerage firm said in company update. However, the stock is already trading above the brokerage's 12-month target price of Rs 3,033 per share.

At 12:18 pm, GMM Pfaudler was up 11 per cent at Rs 3,245 on the BSE, against 0.65 per cent rise in the S&P BSE Sensex. The trading volumes on the counter more than doubled with a combined 121,261 shares changing hands on the NSE and BSE so far.
