Ok, but a great past record does not mean bright future, right? So why look at Valiant now?
Valiant has gone through massive capex since past 2 years yet revenues have not flown! See how..
• FY 19 consolidated revenues were Rs 692 crores.
• TTM consolidated revenues...
...Rs 681 crores which is still below FY19.
• Capex post FY19 = Rs 313 crore (increase in gross block + increase in CWIP) which is yet to flow through to revenues.
• Net Fixed assets have increased ~2x since March-2019.
• If you assume Asset turnover of 2 (conservatively)...
...this capex alone should generate incremental sales of Rs 600-650 crore.
• Conservatively assuming 26% margins, total PAT by FY22/23 can be in range of Rs 290-Rs 300 crore.
What is Valiant doing with this Capex?
• PAP/OAP: Valiant has likely commenced manufacturing Para Amino Phenol (PAP) and Ortho Amino Phenol (OAP) in the H2 FY 20-21.
• Chlorination at Sarigam (represents ~45% of FY20 revenues): Capacity expansion from 4,800 MT to 18,000 MT... last two years. This will help add high margin downstream products by using new raw materials.
• Hydrogenation at Jhagadia: Capacity expansion from 18,000 MT to 26,000 MT. Separately, capex of Rs. 100 crore for backward integration in FY 20-21 and other capacity...
...expansion projects expected in FY 21-22.
• Ammonolysis at Tarapur and Vapi (represents ~40% of FY20 revenues): Capacity expansion from 13,000 MT to 16,000 MT. This increased production capacity will mostly be value-added intermediates and import substitutes....

o Planning to manufacture of Paracetamol, other drug Intermediates and API’s through organic or inorganic route.
Peak revenue potential of capex
• Chloro Phenols: In FY18-19, Chloro Phenols (which includes PCP, OCP, 2,4 Di Chloro Phenol) revenues stood at Rs. 180 crores. Now if total capacity has increased by 3.75x, peak revenue potential from Chlorophenols itself could be about...
...~Rs. 675 crore.
• Ammonolysis: Considering capacity expansion, peak revenue potential can be about Rs. 300 crores.
• Acetylation, Hydrogenation, Sulphonation and Methoxylation: Considering capacity expansion, peak revenue potential can be about Rs. 140 crores.
..• Para Amino Phenol (PAP): PAP market is pegged at Rs 700 crore as per brokerage research reports. Although PAP is manufactured by various other companies and both Vinati Organics and Deepak Nitrite may enter PAP production...
