ICICI Securities Limited’s Report Overview
Archean Chemical Industries (ACI) reported a significant growth in its Q4FY23 EBITDA, which increased by 21.5% year-on-year to reach Rs1.9 billion. This positive performance can be attributed to strong pricing in the bromine and salt segments. However, the company has experienced challenges in terms of bromine export volumes and realizations, which are anticipated to improve in the coming two quarters. It is expected that bromine realizations will decline to US$4/kg from approximately US$4.7 in FY23.
On the other hand, the salt segment has performed better than expected in terms of pricing, which is projected to remain stable in FY24, accompanied by strong volume growth. ACI has plans to achieve a 5 million tons per annum (mtpa) salt capacity by FY25, with the entire production expected to be sold within the same year. Additionally, the company is set to bill 8.8 thousand tonnes equivalent (kte) of SOP production in FY23 and foresees higher production levels in FY24.
ACI aims to commence bromine derivative production by the end of FY24, with a capital expenditure of Rs2.5 billion and a potential asset turnover of 3x. Consequently, EPS estimates have been revised downward by 29% for FY24E, primarily due to lower bromine revenues, and by 8% for FY25. The target price has been adjusted to Rs750 (from Rs820), while the FY25E P/E multiple remains unchanged at 13x. Despite the challenges and risks, including weak demand for bromine and a sharp decline in salt prices, the recommendation for investors is to maintain a BUY stance.
