Substancial Order Book and Expected Growth In Future Volumes Will Result In Improvement Business Performance
VLL has always been working at an average capacity utilization of ~50-60% with lower order book. However, The order book of the company has more than doubled mainly due to large order inflows in the Pharma analytical services for both large and small molecules. Additionally, the management expects to reach its prior growth trajectory of 15-20% by the end of FY21 which is delayed due to the adverse impact that COVID-19 has had on the Indian Economy.
Outlook and Valuaiton
We have factored the impact in sales for FY21E due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Thereafter we are optimistic of a slow recovery and normalization of business in H2FY21E and FY22E. We expect the FY22E EPS to be Rs. 9.39 and the PAT margin to be 9.3%. We have assigned a P/E multiple of 15X and arrive at a Target Price of Rs. 141 which gives an upside of ~28% from Reco Price of Rs. 110. Hence, we re-instate coverage on Vimta Labs Ltd with a BUY rating over an investment horizon of 16-24 months.
