The brokerage’s perspective on IFGL refractories
According to the brokerage’s research report, âIFGL is expected to generate strong profit growth with consolidated EBITDA that will double to Rs 1.9-2 billion (in fiscal year 23E / FY24E) against a range from 0.9 to 1 billion rupees in the last 3 to 4 years. adding customers, especially mini factories (10-11% of revenue now vs. no presence before), recruiting industry veterans from peers to key positions, market share in domestic refractory business and a favorable demand scenario from both domestic and global steel industry. We anticipate an improvement in the performance of IFGL’s overseas subsidiaries on the recovery of demand in the EU and the United States as well as greater acceptability of the products sold by Hoffman. Additionally, the benefits of the new plant’s location in the south and the product additions (prefabricated in Vizag) should help IFGL achieve revenue growth of at least 12% CAGR on FY21-FY24E. “
The brokerage also said that âIFGL has maintained net cash for the past 3 years, thus funding expansions through internal provisions while also ensuring higher returns to shareholders (full year dividend yield 21 by 5.8%). IFGL’s cash flow generation is also very efficient due to the tight working capital cycle leading to OCF / Cash PAT> 1 over the past 5 years. Despite such compelling financial data, IFGL is currently trading at 4.1x FY23E EV / EBITDA versus 14-17x for its peers. We believe the stock certainly qualifies for a reassessment. Evaluation.”
