We expect that Covid-19 led lockdown and slowdown in the economy will lead to degrowth in revenue in the near term. The industry has a higher dependence on the manufacturing sector and government support which is expected to post slow growth due to expected slowdown in the economy. Due to a shortage in storage capacity of Oil in Q1FY21, tanker realization has improved drastically but which is not sustainable as OMCs has started with the liquidation of inventories. Government divestment will be a key event to focus in the near term.
Valuations and View:
We expect that the company will get benefits from the long experience of business, leadership position, diversified revenue stream. Covid19 led lockdown that has adversely impacted economy which in turn affected the company, lower utilization, expected shortage of labour, and non-recurrence of Q4FY20 and Q1FY21 performance of tanker division which could lead to 4% CAGR in top-line and 8% EPS CAGR over FY20-22E. Shipping stocks are valued based on their book values/NAV. In the case of Shipping Corporation of India, we do not have access to its NAV and hence have to depend on its EPS and BV.
