Within the institutional segment, EHV is the most profitable cable segment at ~14-15% margin. EPC margin is expected to remain at 10-11%, owing to the inherent advantage of in-house souring of cables. Accordingly, we expect an average of 10% EBITDA margin over FY17-19E. This would lead to an EBITDA CAGR of 14% over FY16-19E (vs 12% over FY13-16).

Peers like Havells India and V-Guard Industries have multiple lines of business. When we look at the cables business segment, Havells and Finolex Cables have significantly higher EBIT margin than KEII. EBIT margin of KEII’s cables segment as per segment-wise reporting works out to be 11.6% and 11.8% for FY15 and FY16 respectively, excluding unallocable overheads.

Yet, while growth has been impressive, we believe that this
is the precursor of even stronger performance. With the incumbent government keen to pursue infrastructure reforms at an accelerated pace, the opportunities are exciting and immense. In this dynamic landscape, your Company, India’s leading wires and cables manufacturer, is fully geared up to make the most of the unfolding developments.

Very good shareholder letter I will say

may be just boasting can’t confirm that but has taken time to write and share all the details

But not a high ROE business cost is a lot not too much margin procurement is done on basis of price only so do not have pricing power in this competitive market .. just another player .. no edge

lot of interest because of borrowings

cash is less very less

not lot of salary only MD is taking 5cr rest is negligible

overall the sector is increasing and will increase this company will get a part of it .. can it get more part that is the question need to compare with other providers ..

management is capable

Let us read Finolex annual report now

finolex no debt less interest has +ve cash flow

bigger folio more items and distributed over more range of products

Finolex seems like family owned business but why uncle to son

Not a great shareholder letter

Seems like KEI is futuristic and management is better

but the sector has limitation on growth may be best is over by looking into finale sales figure we can say this

Also, KEI Industries, another major player in the cables segment is available, and incidentally a “Superbrand” in Dec 2012, is available at cheaper valuations, although it has much higher debt levels.

1) The business is a low margin one and any small change in margins can inflate/deflate profit growth. And influencing margin and profits to a great extend is other income which was 15% of operating profit in 2012. This largely consists of div payout from Finolex Industries done in Sep quarter. March 2013 could give a decline in profit if the March 2012 other income performance of 9.4 Cr cannot be repeated. There is no div payout from Finolex ind in March Quarter.

cannot see long term growth here for sure once all transmission lines are in place …

right now new transmission lines are growing hence the growth right..

huge competitive market no benefit I can see for this particular company

can be vested for small duration till 2020 or so

real state growth power lines overall any kind of growth
