Ispat will be a positive surprise in December 21st, 2010, JSW STEEL acquired 41.29 % of
for Rs. 2157 Cr; Ispat will be renamed as JSW Ispat Steel. JSW to get 108.66 crore equity shares of Ispat on a preferential basis at Rs. 19.85/sh totaling to Rs. 2,157 Cr. JSW has made an open offer for an additional 20% to the minority shareholders of Ispat at a marginal premium of Rs. 20.54, which would be an additional spending of around Rs. 1,200 Cr. This deal will not only make Jindal the largest private sector steelmaker by capacity in India, but it will also bring Ispat back to the profit path after its debt of Rs. 7,500 Cr is refinanced and Rs. 3,100 Cr injected into the company as capital expenditure. With the start of ISPAT IND shipments, Ispat industries have posted a net profit of Rs. 70 Cr for Q4FY11, with EBITDA/ tonne of Rs. 5700. This has been a positive surprise and could be achieved because of better realizations of Rs. 40,700/ tonne and one time tax benefit to the tune of Rs. 35 Cr. Japan’s 2nd largest steelmaker JFE has acquired 14.99% stake in JSW (on a fully diluted basis) at Rs. 5,410 cr @Rs1,500/share. The current stake of 16.17% will come down to 14.99% after the conversion of 1.75 Cr warrants by JSW’s promoters. This has helped JSW in bringing down its financial leverage to a manageable level & to meet its funding requirements for the many growth projects in the pipeline. It is believed that technological collaboration with JFE would help JSW to improve product mix & to achieve further operational efficiencies, leading to EBITDA/tonne expansion. JSW has received all permits for coking coal sales in US and expects 0.5mnt shipment in FY12. Company also plans to increase Vijayanagar capacity by 2.0mntpa through debottlenecking at an attractive capital cost of US$ 300/tonne. JSW Steel and Essar Steel have hiked prices of flat products by up to Rs. 600–1,000/tonne with effect from June 1, 2011, on account of higher raw-material costs. 1QFY2012 benchmark coking coal contracts have been settled at US$330/tonne due to floods in Chile , and 2QFY2012 contracts have been settled at higher levels of US$315/tonne. In case of iron ore, 1QFY2012 contracts were settled higher by 20%, while 2QFY2012 contracts are expected to remain flat vs. 1QFY2012. On the other hand, steel companies may not hike long product prices as the monsoon season is approaching, when construction activity slows down Australia
Outlook & Valuation:
The company has a net debt of Rs. 14,160 Cr and a cash balance of Rs. 2300 Cr as on 31st March 2011. The consolidated D/E remains at 0.84. The company has repaid Rs. 450 Cr and drawn Rs. 760 Cr new debt during FY11. Raw material as percentage to sales has been lower during the quarter, as the company has been using its comparatively low priced coking coal inventory. The scenario however is not likely to remain same in the short to medium term, as the macro economic situation in the country has been getting more challenging with rise in inflation and interest rates. This would put pressure on margins. Steps by Karnataka government and other concerned authorities to stop illegal mining in the state may also proved to be negative for the company, as that might restrict availability of low grade fines at a cheaper price. On the positive side, contribution form
iron ore mines are likely to visible during FY12. The sales volume of 0.8 mt and 1 mt for FY12 and FY13 respectively from Chile are considered. Company is expecting 0.5 mt coking coal from US during FY12. Despite some pain in the short to medium term it can be expected that the stock has a potential to outperform on a longer term basis backed by strong volume growth and higher integration. The company has indicated its seriousness in having stronger backward integration even by acquisition of mines if available at a right price. At the CMP of Rs. 882.55, the stock is trading at 7.18 x FY13E EPS and 5.1 x FY13E EV/EBITDA. Looking at the positives and concerns, the value of the company comes at Rs. 1,500/ share which I believe is a fair value of the stock. Chile
I would buy JSW STEEL LTD with a price target of Rs. 915 for the short term and Rs. 1150 for the 6 month target. As I always say, I am a long term believer in markets & I do respect the markets and will keep a strict stop loss of 8 % or Rs. 812.00 on purchases.
