  7. 7. HIDDEN GEMS – OCTOBER 2012 - 7 - SARAL GYAN CAPITAL SERVICES 2. Recent Development Tide Water Oil Company initiates global expansion programme - May 31, 2012 Tide Water Oil Company India Ltd has kicked off an international expansion programme after the purchase of lubricant maker 'Veedol International Ltd' from BP International. After buying German auto lubricant company, Tide Water Oil, which is an arm of Andrew Yule Company Ltd, had bagged the right to sale Veedol products to nearly 120 nations across the globe, according to Kallol Datta, Chairman and Managing Director, Andrew Yule. While announcing the company's financial results for FY12, Datta stated that last year and before the purchase of the Kolkata Based company, it saw 17% rise in sales to Rs 1,004.47 crores as compared to Rs 859.41 crore in the FY11. He also said that besides marketing Veedol lubricants to 120 nations in phases before the end of 2012, they are holding discussions with prominent Japanese auto lubricant and oil producer 'JX Nippon Oil and Energy Corporation' for strengthening business operations in India. Tide Water Oil India Limited has acquired Scotland based - Veedol International from BP Plc. – October 24, 2011 Tide Water Oil was set up initially to trade as an importer of Lubricants for the group companies of Andrew Yule and other related industries. The imports were mainly from Tide Water Oil Company, USA. Tide Water Oil Company, USA, had a 22% ownership in Tide Water Oil which later was transferred to Getty Oil, USA and then to the Texaco Group under the aegis of Four Star Oil and Gas Company, USA, by a series of overseas M&As. Getty Oil after acquiring the Tide Water Oil Company, USA, spun off the ‘Veedol’ brand, except in India, into a separate company, Veedol International, Scotland and subsequently sold its stake in Veedol International to BP Plc. BP Plc announced it's plans of selling Veedol International and Duckhams in February this year. In 2002, Andrew Yule decided to divest its stake in Tide Water as a part of a restructuring excercise. A number of companies including IBP Limited, Caltex, Mitsubishi Oil, Standard Greases and a Kolkata based entrepreneur - Mahendra Jalan were interested in acquiring the company, but the disinvestment was stuck due to the dispute over the 'Veedol' and 'Nippon Mitsubishi' brands. In 2008, Cheron Group owned Four Star Oil and Gas Company sold its 22% stake in Tide Water, which was majorly bought by Mahndra Jalan and Maharashtra based Standard Greases Private Limited.

  9. 9. HIDDEN GEMS – OCTOBER 2012 - 9 - SARAL GYAN CAPITAL SERVICES Current & Expected Earnings Quarterly Ended Profit & Loss Account Expected Earnings for 3rd and 4th Qtr FY 2012-13: Tide Water Oil Ltd has posted muted growth in FY 2011-12. In last 3 years, Tide Water Oil revenue & net profit grew at a CAGR of 13.61% & 21% respectively over FY09-12. We believe that in short term, company operating margins may remain under pressure due to rising fuel prices and high interest rates but this may get mitigated partially by the company’s venture into the international lubricant market. We expect company to deliver robust top line & bottom line in FY13-14.

Key Concerns / Risks  The operating margins of the company are likely to remain susceptible to the volatility in base oil prices and the ability of the industry to pass on cost increases to the consumers.  Muted growth outlook for the domestic automobile industry in the near term on the back of rising fuel prices and high interest rates.  Presence of a number of large players including the oil Public Sector Undertakings (PSU) and strong private sector companies can give tough competition to the company.  Rise in input prices may continue to put the margins under pressure and increasing emphasis on long drain lubes may adversely affect volume growth.
  13. 13. HIDDEN GEMS – OCTOBER 2012 - 13 - SARAL GYAN CAPITAL SERVICES 7. Saral Gyan Recommendation With well diversified basket of products, strong brand recognition and wide distribution network, Tide Water Oil is well equipped to perform steadily in the coming years. Acquisition of Veedol International Limited bestowed competitive edge unfolding promising opportunities for the Company globally. Tide Water Oil has already started exploring opportunities of marketing Veedol Lubricants in foreign markets post acquisition of Veedol International Ltd. The Company’s sub-brands such as Prima, Turbo and Take Off have also been able to create a good will in the respective market segments. Company has already set up a subsidiary in Dubai and is also looking at spreading business in SA, Mexico and Germany. New initiatives under various loyalty programmes with the dealers and the retailers have strengthened the marketing and distribution network of the Company. Moreover, expected prices rise of all its products by Rs. 12-14 per litre may impact topline in near term but increase profit margins of the company. As per our estimates, Tide Water Oil can deliver bottom line of 600 million for full financial year 2012 – 13, annualized EPS of Rs. 690 with forward P/E ratio of 11.2 X for FY 2012-13, which makes stock relative inexpensive compared to peer group companies. Company has paid regular dividends to share holders since last 5 years; dividend payout is increased from Rs. 20/share in 2008 to Rs. 120/share in 2012. Dividend yield at CMP is 1.55%. On small equity of Rs. 8.7 million, the estimated annualized EPS for FY 12-13 works out to Rs. 690 and the Book Value per share is Rs. 3706.97. At current market price of Rs. 7744, stock price to book value is 2.09, which makes stock valuations attractive with a long term view of 18-24 months. Considering relative inexpensive valuations and opportunities in global markets for well established & trusted brand like Veedol, we find Tide Water Oil Ltd an attractive Pick. Saral Gyan Team recommends “BUY” on Tide Water Oil Ltd. for a target of Rs. 12,500 over a period of 18-24 months. Buying Strategy:  50% at current market price of Rs. 7744.50  50% at price range of Rs. 6500 - 6800
