6. India’s Infrastructure Boom:

JTL stands to benefit from India’s ongoing infrastructure development, including projects in roads, airports, railways, real estate, water sanitation, affordable housing, and logistics.

  • The government plans to expand its total metro network to 2,660 km from present 690km by expanding the network in exiting cities and introducing the metro in new cities.

  • The structural steel tube sector is characterized by intense competition, with approximately 55% of the market being unorganized.

 

Financials:

Compounded Sales CAGR Compounded Profit CAGR
10 Years: 33% 65%
5 Years: 56% 62%
3 Years: 89% 108%

5 year view:

For JTL industries, we expect a 32% CAGR growth in EPS in the next 5 years.

Key reasons include expansion initiatives, the expansion of value-added products, and higher targets for sales and margin growth.

India’s infrastructure boom will also aid in the steady growth of the company.

 

 

We estimate the stock to grow by at least 2.4 times or grow by a CAGR of at least 18.8% in the next 5 years.

Consistent reduction in debt, with the company currently being almost debt-free. Also, company has a robust revenue growth of approximately 31.8 percent over the last five years and the profit grew at a CAGR of about 71%.

Potential Risks
  • Dependency on two major clients, Lupin and Optics Laboratories, which accounts for most of their sales.
  • Change in CEO with Mr. Jagadish O. Kauiaigi resigning and Mr. Tapas Guha Thakurata assuming the role on January 5, 2023.
  • Though company has plans of international expansion, currently company has exposure only to domestic markets.
Financials

 

5 year view:

For GTBL, we expect a 30% CAGR growth in EPS in the next 5 years.

Key reasons include the strategic investments, such as a new R&D lab, API block, and expanded fermentation capacity. Also company’s shift to a manufacturing and sales model has enhanced margins.

Further the launch of 10 to 12 new pharmaceutical products and targeted market expansion with special focus on exports would drive the growth for the company in the next 5 years.

FIIs/DIIs currently hold no stake in the company and hence more FII/DII investments are expected due to the solid performance of the company which will also aid in its growth.

We estimate the stock to grow by at least 3.3 times or grow by a CAGR of at least 27% in the next 5 years.

IPOs are making a comeback in 2024

Introduction:

The Indian Initial Public Offering (IPO) landscape has been a rollercoaster ride over the past few years. After a significant dip in 2022 and 2023, IPOs are back in focus in 2024, marking a resurgence in the primary equity markets. In 2022, the IPO market experienced a slowdown, with a 50% decline in funds raised compared to the previous year. The year 2023 continued this trend with a further 17.5% drop in IPO fundraising. The primary markets experienced a dry and slow first six months, only to witness a significant surge in new stocks going public in the latter part of 2023.

 

 

India IPO’s activity over the years

Investor sentiment was deterred by increasing volatility from rising geopolitical tensions, inflation and aggressive interest rate hikes. This weakened the stock markets, valuations and post-IPO performance. Because of tightened market liquidity, investors were more risk averse and favored companies that were able to demonstrate resilient business models in terms of profitability and cash flows. The Americas IPO activity sank to a 13-year low by volume and a 20-year low by value after a record-breaking 2021. Also Europe IPO proceeds were down 78%, affected by geopolitical turmoil.

IPO Revival :

Q4 2023 witnessed a significant surge in India’s IPO market with 23 IPOs, marking the highest number for the October-to-December quarter in a decade. The following are the reasons for the positive outlook:

  • Economic Rebound: India’s GDP growth is projected to be among the highest globally in 2024, indicating a strong and resilient economy. This bodes well for businesses seeking capital to expand and thrive.
  • Stable Interest Rates & Lower inflation:
    While still elevated compared to previous years, interest rate hikes seem to be slowing down. This is a result of lower inflation levels, creating a more predictable financial environment for companies and investors.
  • Anticipation of upcoming Indian elections has driven companies to expedite IPOs before February or March, leading to high demand, liquidity, and optimism.
  • Positive investor Sentiment: Easing global uncertainties and signs of market recovery, investors are returning to riskier assets, including IPOs. Additionally, India’s strong domestic investor base offers a reliable source of funds.

Due to the positive outlook, many companies to expected to launch their IPO’s in 2024. Some of the most anticipated Indian  IPO’s of 2024 are listed below:

 

Brainbees Solutions (Firstcry’s Parent)

  • IPO comprises a fresh issue of equity shares aggregating Rs 1,816 crore and an offer for sale of more than 54 million equity shares.

  • Subsidiary Investments: Brainbees Solutions will allocate funds to invest in subsidiaries like GlobalBees Brands and acquire additional stakes in indirect subsidiaries, showcasing a focus on strategic expansion.
  • Diversified Fund Usage: The IPO capital will support various initiatives, including sales, marketing, technology, data science, acquisitions, and general corporate purposes, reflecting a well-rounded investment strategy.
