Finolex Industries- Growth cum Deleveraging play

You may have a look at the profile and financials of the co’ here 

Going forward, this is what the management says about FY14.

In FY13, other expenses shot up by approx. 100crs and finance cost came down by 24crs. Major portion of the other expenses was towards settlement of derivative losses.

Q4 of FY13 indicates how FY14 might shape up. Company ended Q4 with an EPS of Rs 6.39. So if we assume raw-material prices to remain stable and interest cost to fall by 15-18crs, Finolex may end up FY14 with an EPS of around Rs 18 and with the co’ paying out 50% of its earnings as dividend, ROE shoots up to 24%. So despite the sharp run up in the stock price, there is scope for another 30%+ price appreciation. Not considering sale of land parcel.
