Good operating show; WHRS to aid savings; retaining a Buy Amid the tough business environment, Deccan Cements reported an enhanced operating performance, beating our estimates, aided by price hikes and cost savings, though the volume decline was in line with the industry. On the commencement of the 6MW WHRS, savings in fuel costs are expected to aid its operating performance. The GU expansion is currently on hold. We believe it strong net cash balance sheet and current short term profitability augurs well. We retain our Buy...

We estimate DECM to deliver 1% vol CAGR during FY20-22E on account of Covid impact in FY21E. WE estimate 15% vol decline in FY21E and factor in 20% recovery in FY22E on low base. Healthy pricing at start of FY21E and the opex reduction from commissioning of loaders and WHRS will aid margin recovery. These should drive 18% EBITDA CAGR in FY20-22E. We maintain BUY with unchanged TP of Rs 370/sh (5.7x its FY22E EBITDA, in-line its 10-yr mean multiple). We maintain BUY on Deccan Cement (DECM) with a TP of Rs 370. Weak demand and volatile pricing in south pulled down DECMs profitability during both 4Q and FY20. However, DECM executed two major cost reduction infrastructures. It commissioned railway wagon and truck loaders in FY20 and its 6MW WHRS is also near completion. These will lower its material handling and power costs FY21 onwards, boosting margin.

Despite near term weakness, we continue to like DCL for its strong focus on remunerative pricing and cost reduction measures. We expect demand revival in FY21E to further aid earnings recovery. Thus, we value the co at 5.7x Sep'21E EBITDA (in-line its 5-yr mean multiple). Maintain BUY with TP Rs 500/share (implies EV of USD 47/MT). DCL currently trades at an extremely low val of 2.7/3.3x FY21/22E EBITDA and EV of USD 25/MT. We maintain BUY with TP Rs 500 (5.7x its Sep21E EBITDA). In 3QFY20, DCL posted weak results (in-line EBITDA), hit by sharp demand contraction in AP/T markets (short term pain in our view).

Currently, the demand scenario in Andhra Pradesh is sluggish due to cancellation of several projects by the newly elected government. This, combined with sand availability and monsoon seasonality, led to a slump in construction activities in the state. Lower cement offtake in the first half of FY20 is attributable to these reasons. Demand recovery in the region is expected from late FY20 or FY21 once the cancelled projects are reallocated. With Deccan Cements having major exposure to the state, the current scenario would act as headwind for growth in the near term....

We like DCL for its strong margin focus, increasing cost reduction measures and as regional pricing outlook has improved.

The stock currently trades at 3.8x FY21E EBITDA and EV of USD 39/MT. Key risks: Continuation of weak demand beyond 1H, sharp reversal in fuel/diesel prices as against the falling trends currently.

Deccan Cements (DCL) registered 23% YoY volume growth in Q1FY19, buoyed by strong demand across all south markets. Still, aggressive competition is preventing price recovery while fuel and freight costs are on rise, leading to 7% EBITDA decline YoY. We continue to like DCL owing to (1) its strong balance sheet and (2) as we expect pricing to recover in south which should help the industry pass on the energy cost inflation. DCL is trading at extremely cheap valuations (14% AOCF/EV yield, 4.6x...

We retain our Buy rating on Deccan Cements (DCL) with a revised TP of Rs670. DCL reported weak earnings growth in Q2Y18 (EBITDA/PAT down 23%/30% YoY) led by high cost inflation and flattish volume offtake. We continue to like DCL owing to 1) the improving demand outlook in the south, 2) DCL's higher than peers profitability metrics, due to its...
