Let Zoom Out and Review Last 12 Quarters Topline
Last 12 Quarters Bottom Line
Last 12 Quarters EPS Growth
In all the above charts, Sep 2020 is the key Quarter where Top Line along with Bottom Line started to change

Few things happened in 2020

1. Sep'20 was the first Q when both their furnaces started to function uninterrupted

2. New import duties from Glass Import from Malaysia were levied in Dec'20

3. Domestic Manufacturing of Solar Modules Increased

4. Global Solar Glass Prices ⬆️
Another key industry change that took place since second half of 2020 is the demand for BI Facial Modules have increased

These are modules with glass on both sides, this effectively doubled Borosil's Market Size over night
I have talked about Borosil Renewables and Entire Solar Industry in Depth in my 5 Hour webinar, you can check it out at below link

Tailwinds for #BorosilRenewable

1. Growing Market (Domestic & Exports)
2. 3rd Largest Producer of Solar Glass Globally

Lets talk about Margins

Sep'20 : First Instance of Both Furnaces Running at Full Capacity
Dec'20 : Domestic Demand Increased
Mar'21 : Global Solar Glass Prices Increased due to shortage in China
Jun'21 : Glass Prices started to Stabilize
Sep'21 : Input Costs Increased
Q3FY22 Margins came in at 41%, my assumption is they were able to pass on higher input costs to end consumers (will confirm in concall)

The company doesn't work on contracts, all orders need to be booked 2 month in advance and payment comes 60 days after order leaves factory
Pricing Power for Borosil Renewables comes from Global Solar Glass Prices and Essentially what is the landed cost of imported solar glass in India

As long as they can sell for the same price, they are in good business and should be able to maintain margins in 33% to 40% range
Of all the components in a Solar Value Chain ☀️

Solar Glass Prices are Most Stable
Solar Wafer (Poly) Prices are Least Stable
*Poly Crystalline Wafer is going out of demand*

Here are all global prices as of Jan'26th
Lets Talk About Exports

Exports are growing fast (small base)
Those who attended my Renewables Webinar know about demand & supply scenario for each geography

Borosil Renewables Exports have effectively doubled over a 9 Month Period & I don't see the trend changing anytime soon
Exports is a key area for them to grow, as they add more capacities starting Q2FY23 these exports should grow more

Here is yours truly asking them about this in Aug 2021 Con Call 📞
Are Operating Margins of 35% to 41% Sustainable?

I think so


This is a manufacturing commodity business, as the plant expands, operating & fixed costs ⬇️

Utilization Levels will not drop below 100% anytime soon

Op. Leverage kicks in such scenarios & leads to high margins
This is evident in this Quarters results

While the Top Line grew by only ~5%, Bottom Line grew by ~30%

Topline cannot grow beyond ~170 to 200cr per Q
(depending on glass prices)

New capacities coming online in Q2FY23 are required to increase it further
Another Common Question Bears 🐻 throw around is new capacities coming online by other glass manufacturers

Here is a stat, 60% of all new solar glass capacity announced to date in India belongs to Borosil Renewables

Slide from my Renewables Webinar Deck 👇🏻
What should the next quarter look like?

From Aug '21 import duties on solar modules were removed till Apr'22
Post Apr'22, there is a 40% import duty on these modules

When an imported module lands in India, it has glass pre installed in it
As such increase in imports mean lower sales for Borosil Renew
This along with higher input costs was my key reason to be expect lower margins in this quarters results

But, I was wrong

They were able to protect margins by passing on the increased input costs

And the domestic demand must be many times over than I estimated caused their topline didn't reduce at all!
In my opinion next quarter should be similar results with topline of ~160 to ~170cr and OPM between 35% to 41%

Q1FY23 should also be the same while Q2FY23 should be bumper as topline should double on account of new furnace going live

EPS Estimates

FY22: ~13
FY23: ~22
Upside Triggers
1. New Capacity

Downside Triggers
1. Highly Valued Stock (most of the immediate upside is captured)
2. Any change in Solar Glass Import Duties
3. Sudden Drop in Global and Imported Solar Glass Prices
Needless to add nothing here is Buy/Sell advice, please do not ask me if you can buy at CMP

Started buying at Rs 35, loaded at Rs70 and SIP till Oct'21

My Margin of Safety is huge and I am incredibly biased.

Will be attending tomorrow's con call and update this thread with management commentary

Dhanyawaad 🙏

A week ago $NFLX was the worst company, today its $FB

$FB now trading for less than 20x its FCF
Increased position in $FB from 7% of PF to 9% of PF
For those asking for thesis, this isn't a metaverse bet, its just pure margin of safety

FB will generate $40B in free cash flow this year, $10B will be spent towards R&D

Instagram isn't going out of fashion anytime soon

Downside is limited at this stage, Upside isn't

Brace for turbulence.

"quarter-percentage point increase" less than what was being priced in, the first to rise will be US Growth/Tech Stocks, our markets tomorrow may be bullish as well

May remain choppy, but the moves should get less volatile both on up and downside

#IndiabullsRealEstate Q3FY22 Results

⭐️The Good
1⃣ Debt further reduced to ₹976cr
2⃣ Divestment of Subsidiary of ₹580cr
3⃣ Sold receivables of ₹2,159cr & total completed inventory of ₹983cr

👎The Bad
1⃣ New Sales were only of ₹184cr & Gross Collections of ₹292cr

Now I do not know why there was a slowdown in New Sales, they haven't provided any information in the Earnings Presentation

If they are finding it hard to sell inventory then its an issue & a systematic risk

Having said that, these numbers do not mean much on their own

Company is being valued on the numbers of Embassy without investors getting any insight into what Embassy's performance was like this Qtr

This should get resolved Q1FY23 onwards post merger with Embassy is completed

Hard to value #IBREAL on its own result in such scenario

But grab a cup of chai anyway ☕ here is a ad-hoc thread on

1. Why US Fed Interest Rates matter?
2. What impact does it have on growth stocks?
3. What do rising rates in US mean for emerging markets like India? Image
Lets first explore what objectives US Fed has and what mechanisms does it use to achieve those objectives? Image
Fed is entrusted with two main objectives

1. Price Stability (Control Inflation)
2. Maximize Employment Image
