Gitanjali Gems Ltd - Gitanjali Gems is one of the largest manufacturers and retailers of diamonds and jewellery in India. It sources rough diamonds from various primary or secondary sources then engages in the cutting and polishing the rough diamond for export to the international market as well as manufacture and sale of diamond and other jewellery through its retail operations in India and abroad. The company was started in 1966 as a partnership. It came with an IPO in the year 2006 with 1.70 cr shares at the price band of Rs.170 -195. The demand for diamond and jewellery products is largely dependents on higher employment and economic levels, which leave higher disposable income in the hands of the consumers. In downturn consumers can quite easily scale down their consumption of jewellery and diamonds.
Gitanjali Gems has got two-diamond manufacturing facilities located at Borivali in Mumbai and at the Special Economic Zone in Surat. It has also got a 100% export oriented unit in SEEPZ Mumbai, which produces gold and platinum studded jewellery. There are also jewellery-manufacturing facilities at MIDC, Andheri, which produces branded jewellery for the retail operations in India. The company has a workforce of over 2300 employees.

The Gitanjali Group has acquired Lucera for Rs 25 crores in 2008. In October 2009, the UK-based Brand Finance, valued the four leading brands of the company at Rs.514 crore (Nakshatra), Rs.468 crore (Gili), Rs.309 cr. (D'Damas) and Rs.210 cr. (Asmi), respectively. GGL is not only gearing towards improving sales but is also looking at multiplying the value of these brands by 1.5 to 2 times by 2011-2012.
Recently, Gitanjali Gems Ltd. (GGL) is in talks with global PE investors Blackstone and CX Partners to divest 10 % of equity to raise $100 million in its restructured jewellery brand holding company. According to sources, in a separate valuation prepared by these PE players, the holding company is valued at close to Rs 5,000 crore, three times the current market capitalisation of Rs 1,700 crore of the entire group. Sources say, around Rs 50 crore will go to the GGL account, while the remaining Rs 400 crore will be re-invested in the company for working capital and inventory build up.
So the question comes that how the subsidiary would have a higher valuation than the parent company? The answer may be that the subsidiary would be a low-debt company, with a minimum working capital cycle, along with high possibility of return on investment. Considering half of the PE multiple of the industry leader, Tanishq, the valuation could be much higher. GGL’s current book value is close to Rs 2,200 crore. This company is in a low margin business because of raw material costs, which is Gold. Now Gitanjali holds gold stock from 11000 levels, so no more margin pressure from raw material side till now.
