FSC is one of India’s largest organised third-party logistics operators. The Indian third-party logistics market has grown at a CAGR of ~12% over FY12-17. With increasing urbanization, rising consumerism due to higher per capita income, favourable regulatory changes, incentives from the government for infrastructure investment and higher levels of outsourcing of logistics activities, the industry growth (especially the organized sector) would continue to remain robust. Further, implementation of GST could create multiple opportunities for organized logistics service providers on account of supply chain optimization initiatives by companies in key user industries.

FSC’s financial performance has been encouraging over the last two to three years. Its net revenue increased by 17.3%, while PAT growth was 36.3% over FY15-17. In H1FY18, the company reported net revenue of Rs 357cr and PAT of Rs 33.3cr. The company has low D/E of 0.2x and its return ratios have improved at steady pace over FY15-17. With experienced management team, wide distribution reach, diversified customer base and vast experience in adopting the technology and automation, FSC seems comfortably placed to capitalize on the available opportunities. At the upper price band of Rs. 664, the stock is priced at 40x FY18E annualized earnings compared to 53x P/E of its listed peer Mahindra Logistics.
