Mr. Keshav Lahoti - Associate Equity Analyst, Angel Broking Ltd
JK Lakshmi is a predominantly north India cement company. North India is a favorable location for the cement industry as it is consolidated to a large extent as well as demand and supply outlook is better compared to other locations. JK Lakshmi has reported strong numbers in Q2FY21 as well as announced a new capacity addition plan through his subsidiary Udaipur Cement. It is also trading at a significant discount compared to north based cement company such as JK Cement as well as historical valuation. We have a buy rating on the company at an upgraded revised target price of Rs.391 by valuing standalone business at 6x FY22E EV/EBITDA.
