Investment Rationale:
Gati Limited is a pioneer and leader in the Express Distribution and Supply Chain Solutions in India. It was the revolutionary approach adopted by Gati that helped launch many path-breaking initiatives in the logistics segment and many were the firsts for the Indian market. Having started as a cargo management company in 1989, Gati has grown into an organization with more than 3,500 employees and covering 603 out of 611 districts in India. The logistics sector presents an incredible arena of opportunity because nearly 90 % of the market is still controlled by the unorganized sector. The size of the logistics market is just $230 billion and it is expected to grow at about 15 % CAGR for next several years, So there is no dearth of opportunity for companies seeking to bring some cost and time saving innovation to this field. Gati has joined with Kintetsu world Express, Japan's leading logistics service provider and formed GATI-KWE which is an unmatched leader in express distribution & Supply chain Solutions in this sector. GATI's Express Distribution & Supply chain (EDSC) business has been transfered to the joint venture company through a business transfer agreement between Gati and KWE wherein KWE has invested around Rs. 267.70 Cr in the JV for its 30 % stake. Gati’s announced a dedicated Shipping route service between Chennai -Yangon - Chennai which will help businesses to maximize trade potential between the two countries. Gati Kausar is expected to expand its Reefer fleet (Refrigerator fleet) size to 350 by the year 2015. GATI Kausar business strategy is to focus on primarily organize retail logistics including food chains, pharmaceuticals, dairy products, agro products and FMCG. The Company is setting up its own cold storage units and plans to develop customized cold storage units to cater to temperature sensitive products. Company’s GATI E commerce business focuses on B2C and C2C segments and is expanding its the capacity size to cater to 30,000 home delivery per day in FY 13. GATI E commerce caters to some of the top notch large online retailers, home shopping channels and provides franchisee solution to multinational brands. Gati has over 4,000 vehicles on road, fleet of refrigerated trucks, container vessels and world class mechantronic warehousing facilities across India. Gati plans to capture logistic demand by strengthening its Road network by way of greater automation and better material handling facilities by introducing the market with Multimodal plus products that have better transit times, Gati's Premium plus is a product offered between air, road and rail, such connectivity to the network and independently focusing on the growing market for the demand of Cold Chain Solutions, e Commerce and International Freight forwarding will surely benefite Gati as an first mover advantage. We may also see that E Shopping is going through an revolutionary changes with an offering of Same Day Shipping and Free Returns to their customers, many retailers are competing to offer the fastest delivery on time or adding an enhanced services such as improved courier services. Recently, an online shopping major announced that it will deliver its orders on same day in US which gives consumers a faster and improved shopping experience. With such intense competetions among online retailers to offer better and faster services, delivery becomes an key and is increasingly becoming a way for retailers to stand out from their competitors and there's were the companies like Gati play an pivotal role, Gati being market leader in logistics will sooner or later would be beneficiary from the online shopping platform.

Outlook and Valuation:
Gati Limited is a pioneer and leader in the Express Distribution and Supply Chain Solutions in India. Gati has a strong vertical integration and have been gaining market share because unorganised players find it difficult to operate due to high wage cost and other procedural hurdles. Expectation of FDI in E-Commerce makes logistics sector very much attractive. FDI will allow big-ticket MNC's to set up JV's so as to tackle supply chain constraints and logistics. The news that the top brass in the government is keen to allow foreign direct investment in retail E-Commerce before the end of FY2014 and as Gati being a stronger player in the logistics sector will be the main beneficiary. GATI’s Core business continues to perform well in subdued market even though it suffered a loss due to its shipping division; however Gati’s management is confident enough that its core business is expected to grow by 20 % which contributes around 75 % to the total revenues and expects its shipping business to turn positive in FY2014 and expects FY14 would be a good year with expected revenue growth of 15 % and EBITDA growth of 30 %. In addition, Gati in association with IBM has initiated Business Transformation process in May 2013 wherein the management expects to save around Rs. 20 Cr of management and admin cost by FY14. Currently, Gati has 2 vessels out of which 1 were dry docked, Gati has divested 40 % in its Shipping business for Rs. 8 Cr to HNI group in Hyderabad, this has now seen an turnaround in the shipping business and making some profit. Consequently, Gati has signed MoU with International Shipping Logistics FZE (ISL) which is a subsidiary of Tata Steel and has launched a new coastal service line across Kandla-Mundra-Cochin Ports,and Gati managements expects this segment to turn profitable in coming quarter. GATI is independently focusing on the growing market demand for Cold Chain Solutions, e Commerce and International Freight forwarding. Gati has over 4,000 vehicles on road, fleet of refrigerated trucks, container vessels and world class mechantronic warehousing facilities across India. Gati was also the first to run the millenium parcel express train in October 2001 between Mumbai and Kolkata with 10 VPUs. The initiative to run a parcel express train between KYN (Mumbai) and NGC (Guwahati) was again taken by Gati - this is a classic example of PPP (Public Private Partnership). The Gati advantage of seamless connectivity across air, road, ocean and rail has resulted in large amount of offerings to the customers which is unmatched in the industry. Besides having a strong network in India, Gati has a strong market presence in the Asia Pacific region and SAARC countries. Gati's shipping division, Gati Coast to Coast based at Chennai, with two decades of experience in the industry has many firsts to its credit: first in operating direct service to Yangon; first in operating a direct container service from Ranong Port, Thailand; and the first in operating direct container service from Penang, Malaysia. Gati Coast to Coast has a tonnage of 43,581 DWT and a fleet strength of six vessels. At the current market price of Rs. 62.30, the stock is bit expensive but it trades at a PE of 17.30x FY14E. The company can post Earnings per share (EPS) of Rs. 3.60 in FY14E and One can buy GATI INDIA LTD with a target price of Rs. 74.00 for Medium to Long term investment and for the SHORT TERM PLAYERS it should be Rs. 65.00.

SALES ( Crs)1,203.001,189.001,273.401,462.30
NET PROFIT (₹ Cr)14.1041.509.6031.10
EPS ()1.604.801.103.60
PE (x)16.505.6020.506.40
P/BV (x)0.700.500.300.20
EV/EBITDA (x)6.808.706.506.10
ROE (%)4.8011.701.603.90
ROCE (%)7.5011.704.306.00

I would buy GATI INDIA LTD for Medium to Long term for target of Rs. 74 and for the shorter term the target would br Rs. 65.00. 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 ₹ 56.22 on every purchase(Why Strict stop loss of 8 % ?) - Click Here
