The company commands better valuations than its close peers 5. Key Concerns / Risks  The Company is still dependent on imports for raw materials and finished goods and also has to make royalty payments and is therefore exposed to foreign exchange fluctuation risk. Depreciation of rupee against the dollar and euro can impact the profitability of the company.  Since the last few years the promoters have been increasing stake in the Company by issuing convertible warrants to themselves. Recently, board of Directors of the Company have approved conversion of 4,00,000 (four lakh) Warrants (issued on January 27, 2014 at a price of Rs. 53.23 including premium of Rs. 43.23 per share) into equity shares of the company which resulted in increase of total paid of the capital of the company to Rs. 9,84,82,480/- divided into 98,48,248 equity shares of the face value of Rs. 10/- each. Though promoters are increasing stake in the company, issuing warrants and converting to equity shares dilutes the equity capital and finally EPS which is a concern for us. Being a debt free company, we believe promoters must increase stake via open market purchase route in interest of minority shareholders.
  13. 13. HIDDEN GEMS – NOVEMBER 2014 - 13 - SARAL GYAN CAPITAL SERVICES 6. Saral Gyan Recommendation Overall coding and marking Industry growth is closely co-related to packaging industry growth and the manufacturing sector growth as a whole. The Indian Coding & Marking industry has reached a level of maturity and acceptance across applications and is dominated value-wise by 4 players with Control Print being amongst them. Being a manufacturer of majority of the Items required for Coding and Marking industry and having a leadership edge in technological terms, Control Print has an advantage over other players in the industry and can increase market share and installed base. Looking at financial performance of the company, we can observe that company’s EBITDA margins have improved from 5% to 22% in last 5 years (FY 09-10 to FY 13-14) with significant important in performance ratios like ROA, ROE and ROCE. Moreover, company enjoys debt free status with surplus cash. With new manufacturing facility at Guwahati, we expect company will continue to deliver revenue and profitability growth above 20% going forward and maintain its high operating margins. Important Ratios Mar 2010 Mar 2011 Mar 2012 Mar 2013 Mar 2014 Margin Ratios Core EBITDA Margin(%) 5.46 8.38 13.61 18.85 21.87 EBIT Margin(%) 6.64 15.24 18.40 18.90 21.66 Pre Tax Margin(%) 4.88 13.13 16.40 18.55 20.85 PAT Margin (%) 4.53 10.06 12.52 15.35 15.20 Performance Ratios ROA(%) 3.48 8.43 11.14 14.39 13.36 ROE(%) 4.82 11.96 14.92 18.97 18.29 ROCE(%) 6.15 15.19 19.74 22.15 24.39 Financial Stability Ratios Total Debt/Equity(x) 0.19 0.19 0.05 0.04 0.06 With government focus to accelerate manufacturing Industry with recent initiatives like “Make in India” campaign, company like Control Print will be the direct beneficiary. As manufacturing becomes increasingly computerised, coded information can guide products through distribution channels and thereby reduce costs. Moreover, to comply with ISO & UL certification, the user companies must have an effective product identification system in place. This provides good business opportunity for coding companies like Control Print. Control Print enjoys strong brand and established market position in industrial printer segment. Association with various global leaders in all the respective Coding & Marking technologies gives technological edge to the company. During the last two years, Company have seen good growth in non-inkjet technology namely Thermal Coders Transfer Overprints, Thermal Ink Codes and Laser coders. Now,
  14. 14. HIDDEN GEMS – NOVEMBER 2014 - 14 - SARAL GYAN CAPITAL SERVICES company is planning to improve its product portfolio and market presence in these segments with upgraded models. In FY 2014, Control Print generated sales worth 2.27 crores from exports. Exports currently contribute only 2.4% to total sales of the company. However, considering the exports growth seen in past years and increase in manufacturing capacity with new plant at Guwahati, we expect significant increase in revenues from exports. Also, cost benefits of manufacturing in India and technical collaboration with leading global players can help company to capitalize on export opportunities going forward. YEAR FY 2009 FY 2010 FY 2011 FY 2012 FY 2013 FY 2014 Export Sales (In Crores) 0.51 0.76 0.82 1.11 1.64 2.27 Growth % 0.00 49.02% 7.89% 35.37% 47.75% 38.41% Control Print has paid uninterrupted dividend from 2002 to 2008. However, later in 2009 there was decline in profits because of higher operating expenses incurred by the company due to new manufacturing plant and slower rise in demand. Hence, dividend was not paid by the company for 3 years (from FY09 to FY11). As profitability and cash flows improved later, company has resumed paying dividend since last 3 years and dividend payout is in the range of 15% to 20%. Dividend yield at current market price is 1.03%. YEAR FY 2009 FY 2010 FY 2011 FY 2012 FY 2013 FY 2014 Dividend / Share (In Rs) 0.00 0.00 0.00 2.00 2.00 2.50 Dividend Payout Ratio 0.0% 0.0% 0.0% 20.2% 14.1% 16.0% As per our estimates, Control Print can deliver bottom line of 207.4 million for full financial year 2014 – 15, annualized EPS of Rs. 21.5 with forward P/E ratio of 11.3X and superior EBITDA margins (~21%) for FY 2014-15, which makes stock an attractive bet at current market price with limited downside risk and good upside potential for medium to long term investors. On equity of Rs. 98.48 million, the estimated annualized EPS for FY 14-15 works out to Rs. 21.5 and the Book Value per share is Rs. 98.4. At current market price of Rs. 243.90, stock price to book value is 2.48. Considering recent expansion, strong operating margins with debt free status and high growth opportunities in the business, Saral Gyan team recommends “Buy” on Control Print Ltd at price of Rs. 243.90 for target of Rs. 510 over a period of 12 to 24 months. Buying Strategy:  70% at current market price of 243.90  30% at price range of 190-210 (in case of correction in stock price in near term) Portfolio Allocation: 4% of your equity portfolio.
