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 cater to this opportunity, Tata Metaliks has already started work on doubling its DI capacity, thereby providing healthy revenue visibility in the longer run. We introduce our FY23E estimates and roll over our valuations to FY23E. We value the stock at 6x FY23E EV/EBITDA and arrive at a target price of Rs. 1050 (earlier target price Rs. 675). Hence, we maintain our BUY rating on the stock.
