Key Concerns / Risks  The Company’s business activity is a single primary business segment of Bulk Drugs. In view of higher capital investment, bulk drug manufacturers typically generate lower return on capital employed as compared to formulation companies owing to thin margins and high competition. Bulk drug business being completely driven by scale of operations which results in high product concentration and pricing related vulnerabilities  SMS Pharmaceutical is in a competitive market and the challenges are both from Indian manufacturers who have similar production facilities, as well as those in China. Competing pharmaceutical companies have several similar bio-equivalent products in the same markets manufactured at facilities that have been approved by regulatory authorities. All of them stay focused on the same markets with the result that price elasticity is tested and margins get eroded.  Pharmaceutical industry sector is facing global competition and most effected by a high attrition rate in India. Since this industry needs trained manpower who has the requisite experience to meet the compliances with statutory requirements, good manufacturing practices, good laboratory practices, QA and QC personnel along with research personnel, high attrition can lead to impact on performance

  11. 11. HIDDEN GEMS – APRIL 2015 - 11 - SARAL GYAN CAPITAL SERVICES Company has planned to invest Rs 950 - 1,000 crore in Andhra Pradesh over the next four - five years. Company is planning to gradually scale down production at its units in Telangana and increase in Andhra Pradesh which will yield better returns on investment for the company considering new life sciences policy of AP government under which state will provide subsidies in power, water and also provide land for setting up of new life science industries in the state. Management has paid dividend to shareholders since company got listed in 2007. However, as company incurred losses in 2012, dividend was not paid out for FY12. Considering ambitious growth plan of the company with expansion of its manufacturing facilities, we expect dividend payout to remain low with dividend yield below 1% during next couple of years. YEAR Mar'10 Mar'11 Mar'12 Mar'13 Mar'14 EPS 2.40 8.39 1.44 25.32 20.38 Dividend / Share (In Rs) 1.00 1.50 0.00 2.00 2.00 Dividend Payout Ratio 35.0% 15.0% 0.0% 6.6% 6.9% As per our estimates, SMS Pharmaceuticals Ltd can deliver bottom line of 370 million for full financial year 2015, annualized EPS of Rs. 43.7 with forward P/E ratio of 12.2X for FY15, valuation looks discounted compared to peers for a company which is going through expansion and target to treble its revenue with improvement in operating margins in next 3 to 4 years. On equity of Rs. 84.65 million, the estimated annualized EPS for FY 14-15 works out to Rs. 43.7 and the Book Value per share is Rs. 291. At current market price of Rs. 534.40, stock price to book value is 1.8. Considering company’s plan to work towards optimizing the capacities of its existing manufacturing facilities, adding additional capacities to drive revenue growth, and improving operating margins by offering broad product portfolio, Saral Gyan team recommends “Buy” on SMS Pharmaceuticals Ltd at price of Rs. 534.40 for target of Rs. 1100 over a period of 18 to 24 months. Buying Strategy:  70% at current market price of 534.40  30% at price range of 470-500 (in case of correction in stock price in near term) Portfolio Allocation: 3% of your equity portfolio.
