Let’s take deep dive into it.

KPR Mill Ltd.:- 

KPR has 12 Manufacturing units of advanced technology equipped with a capacity to produce 1,00,000 MT of yarn per annum; 40,000 MT fabrics per annum; 115 million ready-made knitted apparel per annum, one of the largest Garment Producers in India. It also has a co-gen Cum Sugar Plant with a capacity of 40 MW & 10,000 TCD and an Ethanol Plant with 130 KLPD capacity. Prompted by the growth prospects, KPR is expanding its Garment and Sugar-based Ethanol Capacities which are in progress.

Planned Capex:-

  • The overall capacity will increase to 20,000 of TCD of sugar, 90 megawatts of power, and 340 KLPD of ethanol. This will be operational by the end of FY22. Revenue at full capacity is expected to be at Rs 1,100 cr, with targeted margins of 25%+. Capital deployment towards value-accretive projects (targeted RoCE: garmenting: 30%, ethanol: 22%) augurs well for KPR.

Robust Order Book:-

  • The garment order book, which was around Rs 575 crore in Q4FY21, is now close to Rs 700 crore. Indian yarn prices continue to be lower than international prices. The sustained quality and prompt delivery continue to enable KPR to attract more Garment orders from the customers whose activities revived after relaxations.

Vertical Integration:-

  • KPR strategically has a vertically integrated alignment from yarn to apparel. This has translated into lower RM volatility and steady EBITDA margins over the years. A higher proportion of garmenting enhances the overall margin profile as the segment yields margins in the range of 22-23%.
KPR Mill Ltd 15,029.82 20.25 13.87 15.75 3.25 6.40
Industry Average 15,029.82 17.95 11.61 13.62 2.47 5.44

2). Canara Bank:- 


  • Set up in 1906, Canara Bank is one of the larger PSBs. It made its initial public offering in 2002. As of August 24, 2021, GoI's ownership in the bank stood at 62.93%.

Comfortable Capital Position:

  • The bank had a net worth of Rs 60,017 crore as of June 30, 2021, also supported by Rs 2,000 crore equity raised by the bank via QIP during fiscal 2021. Further, the bank has raised Rs 2,500 crore equity in August 2021. CET1, Tier-I capital adequacy ratio (CAR), and overall CAR stood at 8.85%, 10.34%, and 13.36%, respectively.

Improvement in credit costs:

  • While the earnings profile of the bank has been impacted over the last few years primarily because of high credit costs, the same has also seen an improvement since fiscal 2021. The bank reported a profit after tax (PAT) of Rs 2,558 crore during fiscal 2021, as compared to substantial losses incurred over the last couple of years (loss of Rs 5839 crore reported for fiscal 2020). For the quarter ended June 30, 2021, the bank reported a PAT of Rs 1,177 crore.

Prudent Provisioning:

  • Excess provisioning has been done on a prudent and conservative basis, including that on restructured accounts. Provision of Rs6.7bn towards fraud accounts in Q4FY21 has also helped lower provisioning requirements. Undemanding valuations, improvement in asset quality, and healthy expected recoveries make us positive on the bank.

KPR Mill Ltd 36,346.10 0.52 2.85% 9.09

3). NALCO:- 


  • NALCO operates captive high-quality bauxite mines, which meet 100% of its alumina requirement for manufacturing aluminum. It also operates 1,200MW coal-based captive power plants, which are sufficient for its entire aluminum smelting capacity. For feeding coal, it has a fuel supply agreement with Mahanadi Coalfield Limited for around 85% of its requirements. This integration confers significant cost advantages, making NALCO one of the few low-cost producers of alumina across the world.

Increased refinery capacity:- 

  • The management has announced a 1mtpa alumina refinery expansion at a CAPEX of ~INR64b, and expects to complete the project in FY23. This increases the refining capacity by 44%.

Integrated operations & high LME aluminum prices

  • As an integrated player, NALCO has nearly fixed production costs, and any fluctuations in realizations directly affect its revenues and margins. The average LME aluminum price rose 52% vs. a year earlier in fiscal 2Q on better demand and less supply from China, the largest aluminum-producing country. China's output of aluminum in fiscal 2Q was 9.6 million tons, down 2% from 1Q, as smelters cut production and commissioning of new capacity slowed due to power shortages. With integrated mining operations, NALCO is the best play on higher LME prices. Alumina prices have not yet reacted to the strength in aluminum and could surprise positively in 2HFY22.

NALCO 19,505.03 10.95 6.00 - 1.55 1.83
Industry Average 44,621.57 9.65 5.68 7.35 1.10 2.31
