Rain Industries Ltd. (Rain) is one of the largest producers of calcined petroleum coke (CPC) and coal tar pitch (CTP) in the world with operations spread across North America, Europe, India and Russia. Apart from large size, Rain has long standing relationships with suppliers to source the key raw materials – green petroleum coke (GPC) and coal tar. During FY13-15, Rain’s profitability was affected due to lower demand from its end customers (aluminium industry). Nevertheless, Rain took several initiatives including setting up a greenfield distillation unit in Russia, partially securing supply of raw material (coal tar) for its European CTP plants, setting up CPC blending facility in India, etc which is likely to push volumes and improve margins. Further, the company has nearly completed its capex cycle and is focused on deleveraging balance sheet and refinancing (to lower interest costs). These measures are likely to boost its net profit (27% CAGR over FY16-19) over the coming three years as per our estimates. We value the stock on sum-of-total-parts (SOTP) basis and initiate coverage with a BUY rating.
