Financial Performance

Venus Pipes reported a strong Q2 FY2024 performance, achieving record-high revenue and margins. Notably, 15% of the Q2 FY2024 revenue is primarily derived from exporting seamless pipes. However, it's worth mentioning that the company's debt increased from ₹90 Crores to ₹145 Crores, mainly due to the prior tube mill expansion project, which added approximately ₹13-14 Crores to the debt.

Capacity Expansion & Backward Integration

The company's order book currently stands at ₹210 Crores, with the expansion of a 400 metric tons per month (MTM) seamless pipe capacity on track, expected to be completed by Q4 FY2024. Backward integration has played a crucial role in enhancing product acceptance in Europe and reducing the reliance on raw material imports.

Volume and Revenue Growth

In terms of volume and revenue growth, seamless pipes have experienced an impressive growth rate of over 100%, while welded pipes have shown growth in the high teens. Specifically:

The company is actively acquiring new clients from sectors such as oil and gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, railways, and more.

Board & Management

Analysis

Since the company is available at very cheap valuations of 45x PE and with such growing potential. With the Government push from various incentives and a strong client base with such a company, there is a lot enough room available with the company. 

Company is also expecting 35% CAGR in FY24 and 25, showing the strength of management and the future visibility of the profitability of the comapny. With increasing capex, there is enough potential to increase the revenue and PAT. Company is also planning to expand SKUs, that will also help in improvement of margins and increasing the operational profitability going forward.

Looking forward, this company is a potential to gain the market share and expand geographically.

Conclusion

Venus Pipes is a shining example of a company that has harnessed the potential of the manufacturing and supply industry. With a commitment to excellence, strategic expansion plans, and a keen eye on future opportunities, the company is poised for continued success. However, potential investors should be mindful of the debt increase and consider the associated risks before making investment decisions.
