Analyst at Nirmal Bang has recommended ‘accumulate’ rating on the stock saying that the fall in Indian crude oil basket price will boost gross margin of the company.
With the fall in crude oil prices, its working capital requirement will reduce significantly, which will ease the high debt equity ratio and also reduce interest costs to that extent, analyst said in a report.
Raw material costs accounted for 72.9% of FY14 net sales. The costs of most of the raw materials like pure terephthalic acid or PTA (69.8% of raw material consumption) and mono ethylene glycol or MEG (25.6%l) are linked to crude oil prices. The costs of these raw materials accounted for around 72.0% of net sales and, therefore, the fall in Indian crude oil basket price will boost gross margin, it added.
