Investment arguments
Pick up in exports to drive growth momentum
Revival in exports to drive future top-line
Over the last one decade (FY2000-2010) NACL has emerged as one of the fastest
growth
growing agrochemical companies, posting a sales CAGR of 29.2%. The sales
growth during the period was mainly driven by exports which posted a CAGR of
54.8%, albeit on a lower base, to end the period at `225cr (FY2010). The
domestic markets segment posted a CAGR of around 24.5% (FY2010) during the
period, leading the company to emerge among the top 10 players in the domestic
market. However, since FY2011, the company’s performance has moderated, with
it posting sales CAGR of only 4.3% over the FY2011-14 period. The main cause
for the same has been gyration in exports and institutional sales. Revenues from
these segments were impacted due to lower demand in export markets and owing
to other operational reasons.
Also, in FY2013, exports were significantly impacted due to the closure of
Srikakulam plant for about five months and due to the incapacitation of Block 5
which was affected by a fire. Block 5 is one of the largest blocks in the plant and
accounted for around 40% of the total capacity of the plant (FY2013). Export sales
accordingly decreased to `120cr in FY2013 V/s `197cr in FY2012. Rough
calculations put the overall sales attributable to the plant at ~`200cr. The
incapacitation of the plant has also severely impacted export sales of the company
in FY2014, which dipped by 23.3% to end the period at `92cr. As a result, the
contribution of exports to total revenue dipped to around 20% in FY2014 from
35% in FY2010.
However, the company has finished its rebuilding work of the fire affected Block-5
and it was re-commissioned in March 2014; the first output of the plant was
received on 30th March, 2014. As a part of risk mitigation and in order to prevent
any such untoward event in future, the company has taken various initiatives and
additional safety measures.
Thus the export and institutional sales of the company have resumed and the same
are reflected in the company’s net sales growth of 19.2% for 1HFY2015. During
FY2015, the company expects to clock export sales of `200cr and should reach its
earlier export sales levels of around `250cr by FY2016.
On the domestic markets front, the company has been growing at a rate higher
than the industry. Going forward, with domestic markets expected to grow at a
CAGR of 12%, on a conservative basis, we easily expect the company to post a
CAGR of 13% over FY2014-16E, while exports are expected to post a CAGR of
61.5% during the same period. This would enable the company to post a CAGR of
16.1% in sales over FY2014-16E to `849cr.

EBIDTA margin to witness an uptrend
Stability in key raw material prices and
On the operating profitability front, the company’s gross margins have averaged a
higher exports to aid margin expansion
healthy 39.0% during FY2000-10 with EBITDA margin at 16.6%. However after
FY2010, the gross margins along with operating margins came under pressure.
During FY2011-14, the gross margins and operating margins averaged around
34.4% and 6.0%, respectively. While the company is backward integrated and
uses almost
65% of its raw material manufactured indigenously, capacity
constraints internally along with rising input costs and raw material supply
constraints have impacted its gross margins. Along with this, the erratic and
irregular power supply from the electricity board, manpower shortage issues etc.
continue to be causes of concerns for the company. However, the major drain on
the operating margins has been the lower capacity utilization of the Srikakulam
plant due to fire at Block 5. Block 5 is one of the largest blocks in the plant; the
block accounted for around 40% of the total capacity of the plant (FY2013). Thus,
both external and internal factors have constrained the overall profitability of the
company, with the company posting EBITDA margins of a meager 0.7% in
FY2014.
With the company now having resolved its problem at the Srikakulam plant, the
operating margins of the company have moved up to 5.2% in 1HFY2015 V/s 2.1%
in 1HFY2014. The gross margins have stabilized at around 30.6% in 1HFY2015
V/s 25.9% in 1HFY2014.

Return ratios to improve
With the company having resolved its problem at the Srikakulam capacity, the
overall capacity utilization levels are expected to improve. This will lead to higher
sales, resulting in improved operational profitability and higher ROCE and ROE.
The ROCE is expected to turn positive to 16.2% in FY2016E, while the ROE is
expected to be 19.3% in FY2016E, broadly in line with the industry averages.

Industry Outlook
Agrochemical Industry- Drivers for growth in place
Domestic Market— Under-penetration to drive growth
The Indian agrochemical sector, with a market size of around ~`13,200cr
(FY2014), has been growing by
~8-10% annually, in comparison to the
3-4% growth rate globally. India is one of the largest consumers of agrochemicals.
The usage of pesticides in India is less than 2% of the global consumption and is
confined to one-fourth of the total arable land of about 180mn hectares. Overall,
India’s consumption of pesticides at around 0.6Kg/ha is lower compared to US
(7Kg/ha) and Japan (12Kg/ha), thus leaving a huge scope for the organized
players to grow.
December 22, 2014

Nagarjuna Agrichem | Initiating Coverage
The crop protection market in India is largely dominated by insecticides which
account for 65% of the total crop protection chemicals market. Herbicides are the
largest growing segment and currently account for 16% of the total and rest is
attributed to fungicides. Paddy and cotton are the major consumers of crop
protection chemicals, accounting for
28% and 20% of overall consumption
respectively. In terms of states, the top three - Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and
Punjab - account for ~50% of the total pesticide consumption in India.
Challenges in the domestic market include seasonality and higher dependence on
monsoon. As much as 60% to 70% of demand is in the Kharif (June to November)
season and companies have to stock inventories well before. The business is long
on credit and agrochemicals are the last thing farmers buy, well after seeds and
fertilizers and offtake depends on a lot of things, including the weather going right.
Also around 64% of Indian cultivated land is monsoon dependent. In terms of
competition, the industry is highly fragmented at both levels, with around
125 technical producers and more than 800 formulators, serving millions of
farmers through thousands of dealers
/ distributors. The top five players
cumulatively capture only 57% of the total market and no single player among
these has over 20% share.
These factors would continue to keep the profitability, especially of the medium
and small players, in check. Hence, companies with large market shares and the
ones being backward integrated will be able to make most of the opportunity.
Overall, the growing populations, shrinking farmland and scarcity of water would
continue to increase pressure on improving farm productivity. In this respect,
pesticides play an important role in trying to minimise the loss due to insects,
weeds and diseases, given that about 35% to 45% of crop production is lost on this
account. This will continue to drive growth of the Indian agrochemical industry. The
apex industry body Assocham said that the agrochemicals sector in India is likely to
cross the `17,600cr mark by 2017, with it currently growing at a CAGR of about
12%.
Exports- Generic along with Contract Manufacturing lucrative
Exports on the other hand, standing at `16,800cr (FY2014), are expected to post a
CAGR of 10% over the next three years, mainly driven by generics. The global
agrichem industry, valued at ~US$53bn (CY2014E), is dominated by the top six
innovators, viz Bayer, Syngenta, Monsanto, BASF, DuPont and Dow, which enjoy a
large market share of the patented (28%) and off-patent (32%) market. The top six
innovators enjoy a large share of the off-patent market due to high entry barriers
for pure generic players. Thus, one-third of the total pie worth ~US$18bn, which is
controlled by the top six innovators through proprietary off-patent products,
provides a high-growth opportunity for larger integrated generic players.
The market share of generic players increased from 32% levels in 1998 to 40%
levels by 2006-end. The industry registered a CAGR of 3% over 1998-2014, while
generic players outpaced the industry, posting a CAGR of 6%. Going ahead, given
the opportunities and a drop in the rate of new molecule introduction by
innovators, we expect generic players to continue to outpace the industry’s growth
and increase their market share in the overall pie. Historically, global agrichem
players have been logging in-line growth with global GDP. Going ahead, over
December 22, 2014

CY2014-15, the global economy is expected to grow by 3-4%. Assuming this trend
plays out in terms of growth for the agrichem industry and given that the same rate
of genericisation occurs, the agrichemical generic industry could log in 6-8% yoy
growth during the period and garner a market share of 50--55%.
Apart from this, toll manufacturing is also an important segment, mainly in
technicals. Many leading MNCs are getting their technicals manufactured in
countries like India on toll basis in view of the cost advantage that it offers. Tolling
as a business is expected to grow as products come out of the patent protection
periods. India, which is the fourth largest producer of agro-chemicals in the world
after the United States, Japan and China can easily make its mark in the
international generic markets, given its low cost of production.
Financials
Top-line to grow at a CAGR of 16.1% over FY2014-16E
We expect the company’s net sales to grow at a CAGR of
16.1% over
FY2014-16E, from `630cr to `849cr, mainly driven by a bounce back in exports.
The company’s net domestic sale is expected to increase from `477cr in FY2014 to
`609cr by FY2016E, while its exports are expected to increase from `92cr to
`240cr, during the same period. The company’s exports growth during the period
would be driven by the full operation of its Srikakulam plant. Growth in the
domestic markets however would be restricted owing to capacity constraints.
EBIDTA and EBIDTA margins to improve
The EBIDTA and the EBIDTA margins of the company have been under pressure on
back of high input costs and closure of one of the main blocks of its Srikakulam
plant, which constitutes around 40% of its capacity. With the block resuming its
production, the EBDITA margins have bounced back to ~5% levels in 1HFY2015.
With stable raw material cost and capacity utilization improving, the company’s
EBIDTA is expected to grow at a CAGR of 359.1% to `87cr by FY2016E. As a
result, EBIDTA margins are expected to improve from 0.7% in FY2014 to 10.3% in
FY2016E.
PAT to witness a significant improvement over FY2014-16E
With improvement in EBIDTA margins specifically in FY2016E, the PAT is expected
to come in at `39cr in FY2016E from a loss of `18cr in FY2014. As a result, the
PAT margins are expected to improve from 0.8% in FY2011 to 4.5% in FY2016E.

Key concerns
Growth challenge in exports: In FY2010, NACL derived 35% of its revenues
from exports, which came down to 27% in FY2011, also on back of the lower
demand from its toll manufacturing business. These exports primarily constitute the
contract manufacturing job that the company does for the MNC players. Hence
any drop in demand of final products of these MNCs will negatively impact the
company’s performance.
Vagaries of monsoon: Most of the agricultural production in India is rain fed
and hence highly dependent on monsoons. Hence, vagaries in monsoon could
affect the demand for agrichemicals and in turn impact the company.
Company Background
NACL is one of the largest pesticide agrichemical companies in the country with a
market share of ~4% and belongs to the Nagarjuna Group of Hyderabad. The
company also has a credible presence in the international market. NACL
manufactures a comprehensive range of pesticide technicals, formulations and
custom manufactured fine chemicals. Pesticides account for 95% of the company's
total revenues. Historically, the domestic business has been contributing around
70% of the company’s overall revenues, while exports accounted for the balance.
However, in the recent past, decline in exports has lead to its contribution coming
down to 20% in FY2014. NACL has three plants situated at Srikakulam, Ethakota
and Shadnagar in Andhra Pradesh.
