Stable performance; Paper continues to outshine Textile business

Captive consumption of Yarn was 40% in Q1FY18 vs 34% in FY17. Paper capacity utilization was lower at 83% (vs 89% in FY17). Paper business witnessed subdued growth due to GST rollout. EBITDA margin declined 50bps yoy to 20.3% and EBITDA stood at Rs2.39bn (-0.2% yoy). Textile EBIT margin came in at 7.9% (-260bps yoy) while Paper EBIT margin was 35.6% (+748bps yoy).

Maintain BUY; Focus on debt repayment to continue

We maintain BUY rating with TP of Rs110 based on 6.5x FY19E EV/EBITDA
