To accommodate the stellar Q1FY20 performance, we raise EPS estimates for FY20/21E from Rs 8.8/11.1 to Rs 11.1/11.7. We expect (1) Low LNG prices to boost industrial volumes; (2) The development of CGD ecosystem across Gujarat to push CNG volumes. We remain positive on the company as it generates OCF yield of almost 9.5% and RoE of >25% over FY21/22E. Valuations are contextually unreasonable at 15.4/14.6x FY21/22E EPS. Post the outstanding Q1FY20 performance, we maintain BUY on GGL. Our target is Rs 246/sh (20x Jun-21E EPS).

7 March 2019 Oil & Gas The Delhi bench of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has ordered the closure/dismantling of all coal gasifiers at Morbi in Gujarat, which is a major sales area for Gujarat Gas (GUJGA). But, according to our estimates, currently there are ~400-450 units running on coal gasifiers. Nonetheless, a blanket ban on all coal gasifiers would result in ~80-100 units going out of business completely as they would not be profitable. Peak potential is estimated at 5-6mmscmd out of which current sales stands at ~2.5mmscmd. In Jul12, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) had announced a similar blanket ban on coal gasifiers, ordering the Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB) to stop and dismantle all units. Back then, ceramic manufacturers had shifted to natural gas by Apr14. We have not changed our estimates as of now, but we note that an effective blanket ban could result in an immediate increase of 2.5mmscmd in volume (~38% of FY19E).
