  • Company is reducing debt in its capital structure and aims to reduce to zero in coming years.

  • Interest coverage ratio is at 7.7 far above its peers. We believe company improves even better with the reduction in debt.

  • Company has blessed with substantial benefit from duty drawback (≈7%) ICRA.

  • Company is investing 100 Cr over next 3 years. It also has to plan expand inorganically by acquiring smaller brands in US. Company plans to raise this money by bank loan. ICRA

INVESTMENT RATIONALE

Company has consistently reported CAGR of above 25% over the past years. However over the next 4-5 years we believe company will growth at 16.81% before attaining saturation growth of 9% thereafter.

Capital Expenditure may yield excess return: Company is increasing capital expenditure of 100 Cr over next 3 years and 80% of this is funded by debt. The capex is distributed equally over three year’s time horizon for simplicity. It is expected to create growth assets which will increase the new worth of the company. EPS growth is substantially reduced because of this reason.

For valuation purposes we have considered the changing capital structure for analyzing growth and discount rate. We also made the assumption that the company over the long run intends to finance 100% equity. Debt-free will attract more DII and FII inflow but also the company will lose tax advantage because interest expenses are tax-deductible. We presume tax over the next few years will be constant and Forex fluctuations are subtle.

Expansion to the US and Europe: The company wants to enter other markets organically and inorganically. Research reports that the company is in final talks with a US-based firm for its tie-up to launch new brands. moneycontrol

If the rupee depreciates even further, this will boost exports and profits significantly. Forex net earnings increased 54.15% from Rs. 231.85 Cr last year to Rs 357.4 Cr this time.

In 2-3 years, KTG will look at having two to three private labels and an own brand. Given the popularity of the private label (well-known toys brand in the US), management believes KTG will not have to invest significantly in brand promotion. It expects additional capacities to be devoted exclusively towards private label and the own brand. In five years time, management targets to have 100% of revenue from direct sales, thus transitioning it into a complete B2C player.

VALUATION

Company’s revenue is expected to grow at 16.81% and even greater 27% CAGR in net profits driven by greater operational efficiencies owing to integrated operations and scale selected benefits. Improvement in execution, stabilization of margins, peaking of the working capital cycle and cash flow improvement to remain key drivers for the stock. The company has sustained an EBIDTA margin of 45.09% and net margin of 28.19%.

We value company Rs. 2549.11 Cr at Rs. 1172.84 per share using DCF valuation (Free Cash Flow to the Equity). Currently stock is trading at Rs. 905 per share. We believe the stock will reach the target of 1250 a year from now. Further relative valuation technique suggests that the stock is trading at a 10-12% discount with its top competitors using PEx. The stock price may wave from 875 to 1120 in the medium term.

We recommend BUY above 950. One can hold on to the stock for a year or odd to avail 30-35% returns.

INDIAN TEXTILE INDUSTRY

The Indian textiles industry, currently estimated at around the US $108 billion, is expected to reach US $ 141 billion by 2021. India has the second-largest manufacturing capacity globally. The textile industry accounts for about 24% of the world’s spindle capacity and 8% of global rotor capacity. India holds a strong production base of a wide range of fiber/yarn from natural fibers like cotton/jute, silk, and wool to synthetic/ man-made fibers like polyester, viscose, nylon, and acrylic.

India enjoys a comparative advantage in terms of skilled manpower and cost of production over major textile producers. There is also increased penetration of organized retail, favorable demographics and rising income levels to drive textile demand.

  • 7 Million Tones of FBP in 2013-14.

  • 2nd largest textile manufacturer in the world.

  • 2nd largest producer of silk and cotton. makeinindia

The textiles sector has witnessed a spurt in investment during the last five years. The industry (including dyed and printed) attracted foreign direct investment (FDI) worth US$ 1,522.51 million during April 2000 to December 2014, has helped industry to absorb pain it had over years due to lack of effective policy, irregularity of monsoon in India, etc. The domestic textile and apparel industry in India is estimated to reach USD 100 Billion by 2016.

Major growth drivers include

  • Rising per capita income

  • Favorable trade policies and superior quality will drive textile exports

  • Favorable policies instituted by the government. Indian government has introduced “Skill India”; the integrated skill development scheme aims to train over 2.675 million people up o 2017, covering all sub-sectors of the textile sector – textile and apparel, handicrafts, handlooms, jute ad sericulture.

  • 100% FDI is allowed under the automatic route in the textile sector.

INVESTMENT RISKS

US economic growth has been revised up to 3.6% largely due to more roust private domestic demand. Cheap oil is boosting real incomes and consumer sentiment. Monetary policy is accommodative keeping interest rates low.

The growth forecast for China, where investment growth has slowed and is expected to moderate further, has been marked down to below seven percent. The authorities are now expected to put greater weight on reducing vulnerabilities from recent rapid credit and investment growth and hence the forecast assumes less of a policy response to the underlying moderation. This lower growth, however, is affecting the rest of Asia.

China, Europe, Japan along with the U.S. (the four largest economies in the world) will largely determine the direction of the global economy through the rest of this year and into 2016. The good news is that the advanced economies overall will perform more strongly and contribute more to global growth in 2015.
