Skipper Q3FY18: On Right Track; Upside 37%

Reliance Securities | Feb. 9, 2018, 3:20 p.m.

Skipper continued to deliver a strong performance in 3QFY18 with its net revenue growing by 39.6% YoY to Rs4.32bn, led by strong volume execution in Engineering Products business and rising commodity prices. Aided by better execution, its EBITDA and PAT grew by 27% YoY and 31.5% YoY to Rs740mn and Rs292mn, respectively. We continue to believe that a sizeable order book, huge imminent opportunity and diversification into PVC business firmly place Skipper on a higher growth trajectory. Rolling over our estimates to FY20E, we maintain our BUY recommendation on the stock with a revised Target Price of Rs340 (from Rs289 earlier).
