EVEREST KANTO CYLINDER - Investment Update from Citigroup

Citigroup believes EKC is uniquely positioned to capture the significant growth potential in India

RESEARCH: CITIGROUP
RATING : BUY
CMP: Rs 150

EVEREST Kanto Cylinder (EKC) is the largest domestic manufacturer of high-pressure gas cylinders used for storage of industrial gases and CNG. Citigroup believes EKC is uniquely positioned to capture the significant growth potential in India for high-pressure gas cylinders, driven largely by increasing CNG penetration, both in India and abroad. While the CNG segment in India is still at a relatively nascent stage, cost economics, improving refuelling infrastructure, visibility of gas supplies and clarity on regulations should accelerate the trajectory for city gas distribution and consequently, CNG penetration, thereby boosting demand for CNG cylinders.

The 12-month target price for EKC of Rs 280, based on 15x September ’09E consolidated earnings — which includes contribution from India, Dubai, US-based CP Industries and the China plant — is in line with the fair value multiple range for its manufacturing/engineering peers in India. Citigroup prefers comparing EKC with capital goods companies that manufacture industrial goods and have a similar growth profile. So invest in EKC with 1 year horizon to make money
