WHAT’S DRIVING THE STOCK?
Supreme Industries holds leadership position in the organized domestic plastic piping market and is the second largest player in moulded plastic furniture. Further, it has a strong presence across other segments of plastics like packaging products and industrial products. Over the last 10 years, the Company posted 14.6 % revenue CAGR and 22% PAT CAGR.
Diversified Product Value
Its portfolio includes plastic piping systems, storage and material handling products, molded furniture, XF films and products (agriculture, industrial), performance films (industrials), protective packaging products, composite plastic products, and petrochemicals. Apart from piping products used in the housing segment, Supreme Industries produces automobile parts, crates/boxes for material handling, furniture (tables/chairs), doors/panels for refrigerators, and packaging for edible and hydrogenated oils.
The key trigger is diversification into value-added sales streams (adhesives, packaging, consumer products, CPVC pipes etc.) which command premium valuations over pure-play PVC pipes.
Recent Fall in Crude Oil Price
With the crude price again falling down and rupee becoming stronger compared to dollar, the raw material prices for plastics (polymer) have again come to a very affordable level.
Management maintained inherent demand drivers are intact: Booming affordable housing, rising farm incomes, shift from unorganized to organized. Given wide product range with continuous new product additions, expansive distribution network, pan-India manufacturing, and higher exports share, Supreme is poised to achieve 12-15% value growth target without compromising on return ratios.
The Company plans to increase its number of plants to 28 from existing 25 by FY 2020. The Company intends to increase its capacity to 700,000 MT by FY 2021 at a capex of around Rs 1,200-1,300 Cr.
Enforcement of Lead-Free Plastic Pipes in India
Supreme Industries seems well positioned to meet the regulatory challenge of lead-free plastic pipes in India. The management said 20% of its manufactured pipes are lead free and the same can be scaled to 100% within a year once the government enforces the same.
Shift from unorganized to organized players post GST regime.
WHAT’S DRAGGING THE STOCK?
The industry is highly fragmented and numerous unorganized players account for 44% of the industry. Given the competitive environment in the industry at the moment, the management has revised its full-year volume guidance downwards to around 10% (from 12-15 % at the start of the year).
Volatility in crude prices
Major raw materials consumed by the Company are poly vinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), which are linked to crude prices. Supreme Industries imports 50% of raw materials. Thus, a sharp increase in crude prices could hurt the EBITDA margin of the Company.
Demand Slowdown in the sectors like real estate, agriculture.
