I had written on Kirloskar Industries nearly 2 years back. Since then . the stock has performed poorly and had gone down all the way to Rs.226 in Dec 2011.
There have been some changes in equity holdings over the last 2 years. An update on Kirloskar Industries ....
42.65 lakh shares – 2.94% of kirloskar oil engines
189.88 lakh shares -23.93 % of kirloskar brothers
666.40 lakhs shares of 48.53% of kirloskar ferrous
5.88 lakhs shares– 4.58% of kirloskar pneumatic
21.6 lakhs shares - 17.39% of swaraj engines
Balance Sheet :
Paid up equity capital : Rs.9.71 cr
Debt : Nil
Cash : 68.5 cr
Annual Dividend receipts in 2011-12: Rs.15.61 cr
Property licensing fee in 2011-12: Rs. 22.1 cr
Windpower unit sale: Rs.6 cr
FD interest: Rs.7 cr
276937 Sq Metres – khadki, Pune ( 68.4 acres)-leased out to Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd
44081 sq metres- kothrud, Pune ( 10.89 acres) – prime ...prime location in Pune. Apartment rates here are in the region of Rs.12,000-14,000 psf
6070 sq metres – bhare , mulshi, pune ( 1.5 acres)
5.6 mw Windmill
1) Divesture of Swaraj Engines stake to M&M. This should fetch them a minimum of Rs.100 cr.
2) Development / sale / co-development of Kothrud, Pune land. Though I’m not privy to land usage restrictions etc prevalent here, this is one of the most prime areas in Pune on Karve road and minimum valuations should be Rs.300 cr.
3) Long term sustainable earnings ( from rent + dividend) are about Rs.40-45 per share.Last year the company paid only Rs.4 per share as dividend on an EPS ( including extraordinary income ) of Rs.69. Most Kirloskar group companies have a minimum payout ratio of about 25%. Any move by the management to bring the dividend payout ratio in line with group companies should see dividend per share moving up to Rs.10-12.
Management quality - at best, sub par.
Stock can languish for a long time in absence of triggers.
From today, the stock trades under the ‘illiquid’ category.
At the cmp of Rs.350 and market cap of about 340 cr, the stock trades at about 10 times sustainable annual PAT of about 35 cr.
