Objects of the Issue

Investment Rationale

* Extensive portfolio of complex products

* Vertically integrated injectables manufacturing capabilities with a consistent regulatory compliance track record

* Diversified B2B-led model across markets

* Healthy Financials – (a) Robust Return Ratios (b) Strong profitability and healthy revenue growth (c) Healthy Balance Sheet


Valuation and Recommendation

Between FY18-20, Gland Pharma’s revenues have grown at CAGR of 28% while Q1FY21’s revenue grew by 31%. The company is engaged in complex products hence it has healthy profitability. Due to no debt and high cash, the company has strong PAT margins at 29.4% in FY20 which has improved from 19.8% in FY18.

We believe the company is able to maintain CAGR of 25% for medium term with strong profitability. Though, Q1FY21 margins looks on the higher side, we believe EBITDA margins in the range of 35-38% are sustainable.

The company intends to do capex with the IPO and cash on books, which can temporarily affect the return rations in near term however the long-term trajectory remains positive The issue price commands P/E of 31.7x FY20 and 19.5x Q1FY21 annualized earnings at the upper price of band of Rs 1490-1500, which is at upper end of Industry. However, going forward the higher revenue growth, improving profitability would make it a better choice among peers. We recommend “Subscribe” on the issue for long term gains
