  1. What would be the expected net profit margins for Pantaloon Retail and Voltas?
    Pantaloon’s margins of late haven’t been great.

  2. Pantaloon will declare their FY08 results on 20th September,I wont speculate since the date is nearby. The company has been working on efficiencies, I expect their operating margins will improve by 100 basis points in FY09 due to their increased focus on fashion sales,also they have raised food prices by some 5-6%. High debt is a concern though.Hopefully, inflation will come down to higher single digit by Q1 of CY09 and thus interest rates by Q2 CY09.

    Voltas has given a NPM guidance of 10% by FY11 so it can only improve going forward. Margins will depend on commodities prices and rupee-dollar movement.

  3. Thanks for your quick reply.
    An NPM of 10% for Voltas would mean Rs 1000 cr in net profit.
    That should give it a market cap of roughly Rs 25000-30000 cr, or even more.
    Do you agree with Kishore Biyani’s target to make Pantaloon a Rs 100000-crore company by 2015?

  4. I guess 10% margins is possible at the EBIT level. Also, 2500crs of 10k crs guidance will come from acquisitions which have not been made till now.

    Per capita income should increase substantially to achieve 1 lakh cr turnover. I dont think its possible by 2015.Maybe 2018 or later.

  5. Actually I was talking about Pantaloon’s market cap and not sales.
    Don’t you think Voltas being a prominent exporter is exposed to exchange rate fluctuations and also to how other economies perform?

  6. Kishore Biyani never said anything about market cap.It was Prof.Mankekar who mentioned in KB’s autobiography.

    Concerns for Voltas is slowdown of residential and commercial real estate and depreciating rupee in the Indian context. Much of the orders for Voltas comes from Middle East whose economy will continue to boom till the crude is above $60.
