Valuation & Outlook
The investment lined up in development of water infrastructure and allied projects augurs well for DI pipes demand, which is likely to grow at a steady pace in the medium term to longer term horizon. The government had constituted the Jal Shakti Mantralaya whose primary objective is to work with states to ensure Har Ghar Jal (piped water supply) to all rural households by 2024 under the Jal Jeevan Mission, auguring well for DI pipes demand. We value the stock at 6x FY22E EV/EBITDA and arrive at a target price of Rs. 675. Hence, we assign a BUY rating to the stock. Key risk to our call is a significant increase in raw material costs and lower-than-expected increase in demand for DI pipes.
