Investment Rationale
Divi's Q2 revenues grew 21.0% YoY to Rs 1749 crore. In Q2, generic segment grew 25.9% YoY, custom synthesis grew 18.1% YoY while carotenoids grew 9.9% YoY. EBITDA margins rose 843 bps YoY to 42.4% due to significantly better gross margin performance, lower other expenditure. Hence, EBITDA grew 51.1% YoY while PAT grew 45.6% YoY in Q2FY21. More than a strong performance, important narrative for Divi’s is unprecedented capex to further augment capacity besides preparing for growing opportunities arising from China plus one factor. It has earmarked an aggressive capex of ~Rs 2800 crore, over and above ~Rs 2000 crore spent in last five years. Impact of this massive investment is already visible and is expected to reflect in FY21-22. Divi’s stays a quintessential play on the Indian API/CRAMs segment with its product offerings and execution prowess. It maintains BUY with TP of Rs 4205 based on 38x FY23E EPS of Rs 110.6.
