Emmbi was incorporated in 1994 by first generation entrepreneurs i.e. Makrand Appalwar and Rinku Appalwar, with initial years confined to trading of FIBC with the company venturing into manufacturing of the same in 1997 with a plant in Silvassa. In 2005, Emmbi installed and commissioned the polypropylene based packaging unit with a capacity of 6000 metric tonne.

In 2010, Emmbi got listed on NSE and BSE. The IPO came in at a price of Rs. 45 per share and the company garnered 39 crore, mainly for expanding its manufacturing facilities domestically.

Future Growth Outlook

Global polymer consumption is expected to grow close to 4 times in two decades from 2000. Production of Polymer is expected to reach 540 million TPA in 2020 from 365 million TPA in 2010. The completely man-made nature of polymers makes innovation and creation of new materials virtually limitless. Moreover, advances in material technology are creating new applications for polymers, further fueling this growth.
India’s consumption of polymers is still a third of the global average and is significantly low compared to other countries like China and Brazil other than USA. As the country urbanizes and grows economically, we see a significant uptick in polymer consumption which is expected to augur well for Emmbi Industries.

With main thrust of Emmbi Industries on water conservation and agri products which are intended for domestic markets and are value added products, we expect significant increase in revenues from domestic sales compared to exports.

The company has set up the Emmbi Innovation Lab, an independent R&D Centre which has received approval for the Lab by the Department of Industrial Research, Science & Technology.

Emmbi focused efforts in product development has resulted in 11 patents, which gives Emmbi an edge over competitors in terms of product offerings and command better margins. Continuous innovation has helped company to increase its share of value added products in the product portfolio with shift in the product mix towards high margin contributors.

4. Peer Group Comparison:
5. Key Concerns & Risks:

i) Rise in Raw Material Prices - The rise in raw material price can impact operating margins of the company for its non-specialty products.

ii) Intense Competition – There are many organized and unorganized players in the Industry offering similar products without any pricing power due to which it’s a low margin business. Hence, it is important for the company to adapt new technologies, offer product innovation, identifying and meeting customer’s expectations in term of high quality, product services and performance to remain ahead of the competition.

6. Saral Gyan Recommendation: (as on 17th July'16)

i) In last few years, Emmbi has acquired substantial share in the international market for various packaging needs for products like Construction Aggregates, Chemicals, Seeds, Fertilizers, and Cement & Food Grains etc. Some of the high value added products which company manufactures for the international market includes Car/Automobile Covers, Container Liners, Anti Corrosive Packaging, Electrically conductive polymer based packaging, etc. To drive domestic growth, Emmbi introduced value added products in water conservation and agriculture space and increased its focus on marketing efforts to develop distribution network in rural India.

ii) Emmbi Innovation Lab i.e R & D arm of the company has received Certificate of Registration from the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR), Ministry of science & Technology, Government of India, which is valid till 31st March, 2018. Govt recognizes the innovation carried out by Emmbi, this recognition enables Emmbi to avail number of fiscal incentives and will results in tax benefits to the company during next 3 years.

iii) Emmbi has recently started the construction of Positive Pressure Clean Room facility for manufacturing of Food and Pharmaceutical Grade FIBC packaging material with estimated project cost of 10 crores. This facility is expected to start production by April 2017 and will help the company to enhance the value addition of the products, especially in USA as the new USFDA guidelines recommends the use of food grade material for packaging for the entire value-chain of Food and Pharma.

iv) The company is currently present in 52 countries and is planning to increase its geographical reach to more than 65 countries in near future with increase in its products offering. The company has already launched several innovative products in last financial year whose applications can be found in food, safety, water conservation, agriculture, infrastructure, e-commerce, crop protection, hazardous waste management and solid waste management.

v) Company has registered sales CAGR of 28.81% and profit CAGR of 27.53% during last 5 years with significant improvement in ROE. The Company has been able to improve its working capital cycle from 170 days in FY15 to 130 days in FY16 owing to increased share of domestic business from 47% in FY15 to 51% in FY16, which resulted in efficient application of funds reducing interest burden & improving debt-equity ratio.
vi) As of Mar’16, promoter’s shareholding in the company is at 57.86%, promoters have increased their holding in the company by 5.49% during last two years. Increase in shareholding by promoters on every passing quarter indicates the confidence of management in robust growth outlook and business prospects, Company has not pledged any shares, Institution shareholding is nil in the company.

vii) Management has rewarded shareholders by paying regular dividend since last 5 years. The company paid dividend of Rs. 0.30 per share for FY15 and we expect management to declare dividend of Rs. 0.50 per share for FY16 considering significant increase in EPS during last financial year. As the company has recently initiated development of new facility with expected outgo of Rs. 10 crores, we find dividend policy suitable in terms of sharing profit with minority shareholders and retaining the balance for future growth.
viii) As per our estimates, Emmbi Industries can deliver PAT of 14.85 crores for full financial year 2016-17, annualized EPS of Rs 8.40 with forward P/E ratio of 13X for FY16-17. Company’s valuation looks attractive considering improvement in financials, better return ratios and robust growth outlook in domestic as well as export market over next 2 years.

ix) On equity of Rs. 17.69 crore, the estimated annualized EPS for FY 16-17 works out to Rs. 8.40 and the Book Value per share is Rs. 41.84. At current market price of Rs. 109.50, stock price to book value is 2.62.

Considering increase in sales contribution from high margin value added product, better working capital control with increasing share of domestic sales, tax benefits to company’s R & D facility during next 3 years and higher earning visibility in FY17-18 with upcoming food and pharmaceutical grade FIBC packaging facility, Saral Gyan team recommends “Buy” on Emmbi Industries Ltd at current market price of Rs. 109.50 for target of Rs. 220 over a period of 12 to 24 months.

Buying Strategy:
  • 60% at current market price of 109.50
  • 40% at price range of 87 - 92 (in case of correction in stock price in near term)
