Jain Irrigation Ltd has multi product industrial profile & manufacturers Drip and Sprinkler Irrigation Systems and Components; PVC, Polyethylene (HDPE, MDPE) & Polypropylene Piping Systems; Plastic Sheets (PVC & PC sheets); Dehydrated Onions and Vegetables; Processed Fruits; Tissue Culture, Hybrid & Grafted Plants; Greenhouses, Poly and Shade Houses; Bio-fertilizers; Solar Water Heating Systems and Solar Photovoltaic Appliances (Solar lighting systems) and Bio- energy sources. Company renders consultancy for complete or partial project planning and implementation e.g. Watershed or Wasteland and / or Crop Selection and Rotation.

About Company - It is the market leader in micro irrigation systems (MIS) in India with over 50 % market share. Having been present in this segment for more than 15 years, there is very strong association of the company with MIS in rural India. Its dealer and sales network is also significantly larger than any of its competitors. As a result, Jain Irrigation is expected to retain its market leadership in the future. MIS alone contributes to more than 50% of its revenues and 70% of EBITDA. Due to its large subsidy business, management of working capital cycle has been a key concern for Jain Irrigation and is a risk to its growth. However, the company has now started factoring its receivables, which should help keep working capital cycle in check. JISL is the biggest player and controls over 1/3rd of the market in drip irrigation, second is Netafim from Israel, Finolex Plasson, Premier Irrigation Adritec.

Future scope of business -  So far only about 4.5 mn hectares (ha) has been brought under MIS compared to government target of 18 mn ha by FY12 and addressable area of 70 mn ha. The government subsidies a minimum of 50% of cost of installation and budget allocation to MIS has been in increasing trends. In FY11, central budget allocation was more than doubled to Rs.1000 cr and recently it was accorded “National Mission” status, which assures funding under the government’s 5-year plan. Government funding for MIS is only likely to go up - MIS is a relatively low hanging fruit for the government in its effort to improve farmland productivity. The MIS market in India is at Rs. 2700 - Rs. 3000 cr, 3/4th of which is for drip irrigation which helps to save water & fertilizer. Agriculture consumes 80 % of water in the country & it makes sense to use drip & sprinkler irrigation systems. In February 9th M&M entered into micro irrigation sector by acquiring 38 % stake in 30 year old Nashik based company EPC for around Rs. 43 crore, M&M will give an open offer of additional 20 % stake in EPC on April 6th. 

Valuations and outlook
JISL has plans to raise Rs. 700 cr through QIP to repay its debt, to provide capital to its new NBFC and to support its future growth. Company believes that fund raising would happen in the next 3-4 months, depending upon the financial market conditions. I have not considered any equity dilution in my estimates. Company declared 1 bonus DVR SHARES (JISLDVREQ DVR shares ) on every 20  Equity Shares held. DVR with 10 % voting rights (click here for DVRs). I therefore recommend Buy and accumulate Jain Irrigation at every dip. My views are positive on the business of JISL and their future prospects on the back of untapped potential of MIS, agricultural business model and strong domestic presence. At present with the drip irrigation market is growing 40 % annually, stock is trading at 22.3x at FY12E EPS as against its historical one - year forward trading band of 10 x 32x. I recommend BUY on the stock with the target of Rs. 350.00

EPS (Rs.)

I recommend BUY on the stock with the target of Rs. 350.00 for the long term.
For short term if one wants to play Budget -  Buy at Current Market Price with the target of Rs. 230, But please do keep a STRICT STOP LOSS OF 8 %. 
For LONG term investors BEST buy is at Rs. 180 - 195.
