Our TP is INR 1,900 based on Sep-21E cash flows (WACC 10%, Terminal growth rate 3.0%). The stock is trading at 15.8x FY22 EPS. Our BUY recommendation on GALSURF with a TP of INR 1,900 is premised on ((1) 55% revenues come from MNCs, which ensures stickiness of business, (2) EBITDA margins are stable at >12% since fluctuations in RMC are easily passed through to customers, and (3) Strong return ratios (RoE/RoIC of 26.3/24.1% in FY22).

We reiterate our BUY rating on the stock with a TP of Rs 1,872 (22x Dec-21E) given, (1) Diversified portfolio that continues to attract and retain customers, (2) Presence in widespread geographies that diversifies business risk, (3) Stability of margins (standard deviation of EBITDA margins over FY10-19 at 2.0), and (4) Ability to generate ~20% RoCE. We visited the Taloja facility of Galaxy Surfactants (GSL) which was followed by an interaction with Mr. K. Natarajan, the Executive Director and COO as well Mr. Ganesh Kamath, the companys CFO.

We remain constructive on the company given its diversified portfolio, healthy volume growth (9-10% over FY20-22E) and quality of customers. Robustness of its business enables GSL to maintain stable margins (EBITDAM of ~12.5 expected over FY20-22E). Given the secular growth opportunity and its capability to generate 20%+ returns on reinvested profits, GSL's current PER of 19.8/17.3x FY21/22E is rather low. We value GSL at 22x Sep-21 EPS to arrive at a TP of Rs 1,834. Maintain BUY. Galaxy Surfactants (GSL) 2QFY20 performance was commendable with >10% YoY volume growth amidst slowdown in the global Home and Personal care (HPC) market. GSL maintained a cautious domestic demand outlook for 2HFY20 but a gradual shift in consumption pattern towards specialty care products will help maintain profitability in the long run. Other geographies, however, will continue to support volume growth in 2H.
Galaxy Surfactants L.. has an average target of 1790.00 from 2 brokers.

Currently, the stock is flat (vs. the Nifty FMCG Index that has delivered +16% since then) despite the 29.1/24.3% jump in EBITDA/PAT. Given the secular growth opportunity and its capability to generate 20%+ returns on reinvested profits, GSL's current PER of 19.0/16.6x FY21/22E looks contextually low Galaxy Surfactants (GSL) is a preferred global supplier of surfactants and other specialty chemicals to leading FMCG MNCs, and caters exclusively to their home and personal care (HPC) segment. Long and intimate relations with its customers drive GSLs steady volume growth, steady margins. It has a diversified portfolio of 200+ products selling across 80 countries to 1,700+ customers. Backed by an experienced management, GSL went public in Feb-18 at Rs 1,480/sh.
