CCL PRODUCTS INDIA LIMITED: CCL Products India Limited was incorporated 0n December, 1961 and is based in Hyderabad, India. The company was earlier known as Sahayak Finance & Investment Corporation Limited and changed its name to Continental Coffee Limited in the year 1993 reflecting the change of its business from hire purchase financing to coffee related business. The company is predominantly engaged in exporting and manufacturing of Soluble Coffee known as Instant Coffee. The company came out with an IPO of about 27,00,000 lakh shares of Rs. 10 each at a premium of Rs. 10 per share in August, 1995. The company, CCL Products (India) Limited, together with its subsidiaries, manufactures and sells coffee products in India. Its coffee products include pure soluble coffee products comprising spray dried coffee powder and granules, freeze dried coffee, and freeze concentrate liquid coffee; decaffeinated coffee; flavoured coffees in vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, chocolate, and hazelnut flavours; certified coffees; and chicory-coffee mix. The company provides its products in various packs, such as jars, cans, sachets-pouches, bag-in boxes, drums, and bulk boxes under the brand name of Continental Spéciale, Continental Premium, and Continental Supreme. CCL Products (India) limited also exports its products to approximately 67 countries worldwide. Company also has its own manufacturing process units for Green beans storage, cleaning and grading, roasting and grinding unit, Extraction-Clarification unit, Aroma recovery and Evaporation unit, Spray drying, Agglomeration, Freeze-drying unit, Freeze Concentrated Liquid Coffee manufacturing unit, and Packaging unit.

CCL Products India Ltd can be locally compared with Tata Global Beverages, Bombay Burmah Trading Co, Mcleod Russel (India) Ltd, Jay Shree Tea & Industries Ltd, Nestle India, Assam Company India Ltd, Goodricke Group Ltd, Warren Tea Ltd, B&A Ltd, Upper Ganges Sugar & Industries Ltd, Tata Coffee Ltd, Hindustan Unilever Ltd and Globally with Unilever PLC of UK, Suntory Beverages & Foods Limited of Japan, BrasilAgro of Brazil, B& G Foods Inc of USA, Premium brands holding corporation of Canada, Ten Peaks Coffee Com of USA, Farmer Bros.

Investment Rationale: 
CCL Products (India) is among the world’s leading and India’s largest processor and exporter of instant coffee with exports to more than 67 countries. It has 10 % market share globally in instant coffee exports. Its top big customers include Israel’s Strauss Coffee B.V. and Germany’s Deutsche Extrakt Kaffee. CCL is one of the very few companies globally that have successfully scaled up this business and increased its capacity near about 10 times since inception in 1995, and that too without equity dilution. CCL Products (India) Ltd. Plans to produce 5,000 tons of coffee this year at its Vietnamese plant which has an annual capacity of 10,000 tons, and company plans to raise this capacity further in the next three years. This capacity expansion in Vietnam will make CCL the world’s second-biggest grower of the beans. Forecasts for good record crops in Vietnam and India will guarantee CCL Products raw materials and bolster efforts to win more buyers for instant coffee supplies which are currently dominated by Nestle SA and Kraft Foods Group Inc. CCL was the largest importer of coffee from Vietnam for 15 years and so Vietnam govt. offered concessions for setting up plant there. The Vietnam plant offers four benefits: 1) Logistical advantage of US$150 per tn because of proximity to coffee-growing zone, 2) Better raw material availability, with lead time lower by one-and-a half months as Vietnam is the second-largest green coffee grower, 3) Favourable duty structure and close proximity to coffee-consuming ASEAN nations like Japan, Korea, China, etc, and 4) No income-tax for first four years and tax exemption of 50 % for next five years. Vietnamese operations are expected to account for almost 50 % of the profit by 2016-17. India’s coffee market is estimated at Rs. 3,000 Cr with Nestle India and Hindustan Unilever Ltd. dominating with a combined branded market share of more than 65 %. The organised coffee market in India is around Rs. 600 Cr or 20 % of the total domestic coffee consumption of Rs. 3,000 Cr and the coffee chain business is growing by 40 % in India. The per capita consumption of coffee in India is just 82 grams compare that with 4 kilos in US. Consumption in India is seen expanding to 2.5 million bags of 60 kilograms each by 2020 from 1.92 million bags in 2013. The world coffee market is set for the largest shortage in nine years as drought cuts the crop in Brazil. Demand will exceed production by 8.8 million bags in the 12 months starting October. Domestic consumption has increased, and this gives CCL the advantage of entering the Indian market as a brand. Indian coffee is the most extraordinary of beverages, offering intriguing subtlety and stimulating intensity. India is the only country that grows all of its coffee under its shade. India’s coffee growing regions have diverse climatic conditions, which are very well suited for cultivation of different varieties of coffee such as Arabicas and Robustas. India is one of the major coffee producing countries and ranks seventh in the world. With only about 2 % share in the global coffee area, India contributes about 4 % towards the world production and it contributes between 4.5 - 5 % of global coffee export. The Govt. of India however, proposes to provide support for the certification of organic coffee under the scheme ‘Integrated Coffee Development Project’ for XII Plan. There has been a gradual increase in the production of coffee in the country. The production of coffee in the country increased from 3,02,000 MT in 2010-11 to 3,18,200 MT in 2012-13. The domestic coffee consumption which was at 1,02,000 MT in 2009-10 has risen to 1,15,000 MT in 2011-12 and growing at the rate of 5-6 % per annum and is estimated at be at 1,20,000 MT during 2012-13. The exports of coffee have achieved an all-time high of 3.33 Lakh MT during 2011-12. CCL Products is no longer content with selling to institutional buyers outside India. The company wants a slice of the domestic branded instant coffee market and has started retailing under the Continental brand in Andhra Pradesh. The company is also supplying to private label manufacturers such as retail supermarkets.

Outlook and Valuation: 
CCL Products India ltd is India’s largest private label in instant coffee, supplying to premium brands in over 67 countries. CCL Products also have one of the world’s largest single-location plants and is considered amongst the top three private label manufactures in global instant coffee. Recently, Government of India approved Rs. 950 Cr project for development of the Coffee sector in 12th Five year Plan, with an aim to increase production and Exports of Coffee. The Integrated Coffee Development Project (ICDP) will be funded for reasearch & development and for export promotion and for transfer of technology. Coffee processing is a niche and highly profitable industry, and has high entry barriers. Coffee processing is not an easy business, as it is very important to get the right blend. Further, the taste & preference varies region-wise and culture-wise. Experience and relationships is Key to success, and the model is not easily replicable. It takes three to five years to win over a client and establish one’s credentials. CCL Products is one of the very few companies globally that have successfully scaled up this business. CCL’s USP is its technology, which it acquired from Brazil, allowing it to use low grade of green (or raw) coffee beans to produce very high quality instant coffee. As stated above, coffee business is very tough to scale up, and the profitability, return ratios and cash flow of CCL remained subdued until FY11, adversely impacting its valuation. Therefore, its historical valuation is not the right benchmark. CCL has increased its capacity since inception in 1995 from 3,500tn and more than three times in the past six years at 33,000tn currently. The expansion was funded mainly through internal accruals, and without recourse to significant debt. CCL has not raised any fresh equity since its listing in 1995. In addition to this, CCL’s debt profile is conservative with a peak Debt to Equity ratio of 1.6 x to its current Debt to Equity ratio of 0.8 x. With Vietnam operations, it is expected that CCL can generate a healthy free cash flow of Rs. 340.5 Cr over FY14-FY17E, which is likely to be utilised to repay the entire debt of Rs. 292.1 Cr and can also improve dividend payout. CCL has now diversified operations in three countries - India, Switzerland and Vietnam - and plans to set up a plant in Africa. This diversified presence will help CCL to gain access to new markets and also exploit arbitrage opportunities between different manufacturing plants to its advantage which would also improve valuation due to lower volatility in earning profile. To cite an example, CCL will leverage the lower duty structure available for its Vietnam plant in several Asian markets and also leverage extended tax benefit. CCL operates on fixed margins without carrying the risk of coffee price volatility. CCL plans to launch its own products on Pan India basis under the brand name Continental (Spéciale, Premium and Supreme) and has already made a soft launch in AP. CCL started doing private labelling for Reliance, Spencer and other super markets, which helped CCL to get space for the Continental brand in these super markets, thereby increasing its visibility. It will take two more years for CCL to roll out its own brand nationally. Nestle India and HUL dominate the branded coffee market in India with a combined organised market share of more than 65 %. Unlike Nestle, which sells only spray dried coffee, CCL has a wider portfolio comprising premium freeze dried coffee, pure vanilla coffee products, etc. In addition, competitors (Nestle and HUL) do not have manufacturing capacities (for freeze dried instant coffee) and CCL has been manufacturing value-added coffee like single filter, double filter, freeze dried, etc at a much lower cost. Hence, CCL is able to offer better products at prices lower than its competitors. CCL’s management aims to achieve in the next three to five years market share of 20 %. As CCL has completed a major portion of its capex, it is likely to incur only maintenance capex. With strong profitability, lower capex and improving working capital cycle, free cash flow generation is expected to be very healthy and company could be debt free by FY17 which would result in re-rating of the stock. At the current market price of Rs. 123.45, the stock P/E ratio is at 13.27 x FY15E and 10.92 x FY16E respectively. Company can post Earning per share (EPS) of Rs. 9.30 for FY15E and Rs. 11.30. One can buy this stock with a target price of Rs. 200.00 for Medium to Long term investment.

It operates news channels, including Aaj Tak, a news channel; Headlines Today, a 24 hours English news channel; Tez, a Hindi news channel; and Dilli Aaj Tak, a metro centric channel. The company came out with an IPO of about 1,45,00,000 lakh shares of Rs. 5 each in December 2003 at Rs. 95 per share raising Rs. 137.75 Cr.

Investment Rationale:
TV Today Network Ltd is just 15 year young company owning India’s four prestigious TV channels -AAJ TAK, HEADLINES TODAY, TEZ and DILLI AAJ TAK. There is also one radio broadcasting division of this company. Company also has a trade investment comprising of equity shares worth Rs. 45 Cr in an associate company called Mail Today Newspapers Pvt Ltd. TV Today Network Ltd is promoted by the media baron Aroon Purie, better known as the owner of Living Media, the publisher of India Today and a host of other publications bearing the suffix 'Today'. Living Media India Ltd, the holding company owns 57.1 % of the equity stake. Reliance Capital is the second largest shareholder with a holding of 13.6 %. TV Today operates as a subsidiary of Living Media, the holding company of the India Today group of publications and also the Aditya Birla group holds a 27.5 % stake in Living Media currently. There are reportedly some around 720 media channels on air today offering their channels in India. News channel garners revenues mainly from advertisements, while the cost of transmission is their major expenses. TV Today with its flagship channel Aaj Tak has been able to maintain its dominant position in the fiercely competitive in Hindi news segment for over a decade. Its news segment, targets directly on the “decision makers” in the family, and also the company enjoys a good portion of the advertisement share, which is expected to rise even further as literacy and income levels rises. With digitisation in phase III and IV cities are in progress, TV Today would be able to monetise better its reach as it enjoys a far stronger position in the smaller cities and towns in the Hindi speaking belt. The News segment forms just 7 % of TV viewership, which garners 21 % of total TV advertisement. TV Today, being a leadership position in the Hindi news segment, commands 10.9 % of total TV news advertisement. The television industry according to the Ficci KPMG report 2014, witnessed a growth of 12 % CAGR in CY08-13 despite the economic slowdown and the industry is expected to grow at 16.2 % CAGR in FY13-18E, rising from Rs. 417 crore at the end of 2013 to Rs. 885 crore by the end of 2018E. The number of television households in India is also expected to increase to 19.1 Cr from 16.1 Cr currently. The television industry dominates the domestic media & entertainment industry forming 45 % of the total industry. The increase in the channel carrying capacity to over 1000’s of television sets owing to digitisation and revision of minimum channels to be broadcasted to 500 is expected to bring in additional subscription revenues to broadcasters. With increasing literacy rates and improving living standards, the need and desire to stay aware has increased. Share of the total news domain (composite of English, Hindi and regional news) in the overall break-up has increased from 6.2 % in 2012 to 7.0 % in 2013. This shows the growing popularity of the news domain among masses. Several new channels have started operations, helping the segment to proliferate further. There are about 392 news and current affairs channels out of a total 792 channels currently operational in the country. In the Hindi news genre, Aaj Tak, ABP News, India TV and Zee News dominate the segment. The interesting point to note is that despite the news segment accounting for 7 % of the viewership share it commands 21.7% ad revenue share. Hindi news channels have a strong ad revenue share of 8.6 %. News channels have a focused target audience and are a cheaper advertisement avenue than Hindi GECs, which makes them preferable to advertisers. Digitisation is expected to be the key contributor to growth in the media industry. Phases I and II are nearly complete in terms of set top box seeding while the focus is expected to now shift to phase III and IV cities. The full benefits are expected to start flowing in once package wise billing commences and there is a shift to the gross billing regime. As the full subscriber universe becomes addressable and leakages are plugged, broadcasters would be the biggest beneficiaries in the entire value chain, realising the highest operating leverage without incurring incremental capex. News being non-proprietary and largely non-exclusive in nature, the content is largely similar among various news channels. In such a case, the ability to break the news first or give detailed coverage of the event by sending a team to the source becomes the differentiating point. In such a case, where the content is highly homogeneous, usually the top one or two players are key beneficiaries. On those lines, Aaj Tak has been able to maintain a leadership position in the last decade. The presence of Aaj Tak in the Hindi news genre dates back to 1995 when it used to broadcast a 20-minute news programme on government controlled channel Doordarshan. Aaj Tak gained immense popularity through Doordarshan. Hence, it launched its own 24 hour news channel in 2000. Owing to its news credibility, quality live feeds and the ability to bring news at the earliest, it was soon dominated the Hindi news genre. Aaj Tak has remained the No. 1 channel in the Hindi news category ever since its launch. Other news channels like ABP News and India News are its key competitors. However, there are market share differences between the No. 1 player and the second and third players.

Outlook and Valuation: 
TV Today Network Ltd is the parent company of India’s very well-known Hindi News Channel AAJ TAK. The company enjoys greater market share in terms of viewership as well as in terms of ad revenue in Hindi language news channel. Owing to its strong presence and a viewership share of 18.5 %, Aaj Tak has been able to constantly take price hikes and dictate terms with advertisers. The company has seen an increase in inventory from 16 minutes to over 20 minutes as demand for advertisements rose in its platform. As of now, the company is maintaining its inventory at 18 minutes per hour. With a viewership share of 18.5 % in the Hindi news segment and 8.7 % of the overall news segment, Aaj Tak commands an impressive 23 % in FY13 of Hindi news and 9.2 % of overall news advertisement revenues. This signifies advertiser’s preference for Aaj Tak in a fiercely competitive segment populated with 392 news & current affair channels. According to Census 2011, around 41.0 % of the Indian population speaks Hindi, followed by Bengali (8.1%), Telugu (7.2%), Marathi (7%) and Tamil (5.9%). The demographic set-up augurs well for TV Today with its offerings in terms of Hindi news channels, which is also reflected in its higher share of advertisement revenue. Once the industry fully shifts to the cost per subscriber (CPS) model, TV Today is expected to witness an exponential growth in subscription revenue. Nonetheless, it will still take a while before higher subscription revenue starts accruing as digitisation is delayed. With digitisation, there has been an unprecedented increase in the channel carrying capacity of distributors with the total number of channels increasing from about 80 in analogue cable to over 1000 channels in digital. The increase in carrying capacity has brought a reduction in carriage costs for all broadcasters. This reduction in carriage fees is critical for news broadcasters, as for them carriage payouts are significantly higher than subscription revenues. News broadcasters shell out about 25-30 % of their total revenue in the form of carriage and placement fees. English news channels spend approximately 70 % of their distribution costs as carriage in the metros and are yet to receive an equivalent benefit in terms of subscription from the metros. Other channels such as Delhi Aaj Tak, Tez and Headlines Today form a very small part of TV Today’s topline as of now. Some of them are free to air (FTA) channels and the company plans to gradually monetise all of them. Even the channel Delhi Aaj Tak, which is a Delhi centric channel, is gaining momentum. Company’s Radio business, Radio Today Broadcasting Ltd, a fellow subsidiary, got merged with the company extending its presence of TV Today in the radio segment under the brand Oye 104.8 FM and has a presence in the six cities of Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Amritsar, Jodhpur and Patiala. However, the company has been unable to keep pace with its peers in the radio segment and has been experimenting with different formats. It started off as Meow 104.8 FM for women in 2007. However, since the strategy did not click with listeners, the company re-branded itself to Oye 104.8 FM based on the “filmy” format Radio’s current contribution to the overall revenues of the company is minuscule at 4 %. Though the radio industry is expected to grow at 18.1 % CAGR in FY13-18E, company’s radio business is expected to do well. Moreover, once the regulator allows the broadcast of live news on radio, Aaj Tak may be able to leverage its dominance in the Hindi news content on radio. India is likely to witness a data and Internet revolution in the coming future, which holds good opportunity for all content rich businesses. The delivery platforms would be amplified creating more demand for the content. Mobiles, wireless internet users (mobile + dongle) have already reached about 23.26 Cr users at the end of March 2014 and the number is expected to go up dramatically. Also, when compared to the global level, India imported the highest number of smart phones. With the launch of several OTT applications and mobile applications, people can conveniently watch videos on their cell phones. This opens up more avenues for the delivery of content. TV Today’s news would also reach such additional platforms, which would open up new avenues for revenue growth. TV Today posted 24.6 % revenue growth in FY14, partly aided by higher government spending in an election year. Moreover, it already clocked in 54.1 % revenue growth in Q1FY15 on account of higher share of advertisement on news channels in the backdrop of general elections in May. As election euphoria has settled and the economy started to turn around, its revenues are expected to grow at a moderate pace and expected to clock a CAGR of 15.5 % (FY14-FY16E). Revenue growth would be primarily led by improving ad yields in the flagship channel coupled with improving utilisation in other channels. While advertisement revenues are expected to grow in tandem with the economy, subscription revenues would be directly correlated to the progress in digitisation. Advertisement revenues and subscription revenues are expected to grow at 16.4 % in FY15E and 7.5 % FY16E. The radio segment is also expected to grow at 26.5 % CAGR over FY14- 16E. Moreover, the company also plans to participate in Phase III auctions and further augment its radio footprint. This extended presence would also drive its revenues, going ahead. The company is expected to be cash flow positive and, hence, would be able to fund its capex requirements internally. The dividend payout by TV Today has ranged between 38 % and 45 % in FY11 to FY13, respectively. FY14 has been an inflection point for the company with the company’s profits nearly quadrupling from the year ago period. Consequent to this, the return ratios, RoCE and RoNW, have reached 22.4 % and 16.2 % in FY14 from 4.0 % and 3.8 % in FY13, respectively. Going ahead, with improving operating leverage and lower capex outlay, the return ratios are further expected to improve. TV today continues to enjoy best operating metrics. TV Today had been trading at an average 18x one year forward P/E during economic upturn cycle in FY04-09. The stock has traded at an average one year forward multiple of 20.3x, over the last 10 years, which covers both high and low economic cycles. However, with the economy still in the earlier phase of revival, and valuing the company at 15x FY16E which will be 25 % discount to the 10 year average P/E which gives the a target price of Rs. 300. At the current market price of Rs. 227.80, the stock P/E ratio is at 13.89 x FY15E and 11.39 x FY16E respectively. Company can post Earning per share (EPS) of Rs. 16.40 for FY15E and Rs. 20.00. One can buy this stock with a target price of Rs. 260.00 and for Medium to Long term investment it should be Rs. 300.
