Aegis Logistics: Flat Q2 Results, But All The Growth Is Next Year

Earnings-Report-Feature-Image.png

Aegis Logistics had flat results for Q2 2016 were absolutely flat, even with a 36% rise in revenue. They saw reduced profitability from their liquid terminal division, while the gas division saw a new 40% jump in profit.aegis-results
The presentation has some interesting stats:

  • Greenfield expansion at Haldia for gas and debottlenecking in Mumbai will triple throughput in the next year.
  • This will also double their storage capacity, nearly (but they get paid for throughput, not capacity)
  • They have done very well with Gas in H1, with 31% increase in EBIDTA and a 28% higher volume of gas carried.
  • They also have liquid logistics coming up in Mangalore and Kandla, and some expansion in Haldia, all set for next year. That would indicate a 30% increase in capacity.
  • LPG usage in India is set to move up as more people get LPG through the government expansion drive and the fact that there is no or low subsidy now.
  • The relatively lower price of crude means that Indian usage is likely to continue to grow, which means more business for liquid/gas logistic players like Aegis.
  • We don’t expect the stock to outperform till this capacity expansion is completed.
