Excerpts of an interview with Mr. U Shekhar, Founder Promoter and Managing Director, Galaxy Surfactants (GALAXY) with CNBC TV18 on 9th February 2021:

  • GALAXY saw good 3QFY21 earnings. The reported double-digit volume growth on a YoY basis is expected to continue, especially in the specialty chemicals segment.
  • Money received from Egypt which was accounted in 3Q was export benefits accumulated over the last 2-3 years. GALAXY accounts for the export benefits availed only when received.
  • Consumer focus on personal hygiene has increased significantly this year. This is expected to sustain going forward and the new products which have been introduced are seeing slow evolution which is certainly giving Galaxy better numbers.
  • The company has implemented expansion projects at Jhagadia, which was expected to be completed by April-21. This project has been delayed a little due to difficulties faced due to the outbreak of Covid-19.
  • The disruption due to shipping and containers is continuing which is certainly putting pressure on the supply chain.
  • The price hikes have been passed on to customers or absorbed the freight hikes in case of long-term contracts.
  • As far as the margin is concerned, there will be a gradual progression when new products keep on getting better.

Indiabulls Housing Finance 1QFY20 result update: Asset quality deteriorates sequentially.

Dated: 7th August 2019

  • Loan assets declined 10% YoY to Rs 1,131 bn. The decline is primarily due to efforts taken for reduction in the Commercial Real Estate (CRE) book.

Management Commentary:

  • IBHFL reduced exposure to CRE loans amounting to Rs 60 bn in 1QFY20. Efforts to reduce CRE exposure is in anticipation of the proposed merger with Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB).
  • Management has guided to quarterly disbursements of Rs 100 bn from 2QFY20. Guidance for loan book growth for FY20E is in mid-teens.
  • Management expects spreads to remain stable in 300-325 bps range.
  • IBHFL recovered Rs 7 bn from Palais Royale in 1QFY20 against earlier guidance of Rs 2 bn. Against the recovery, Rs 4.5 bn was used to make additional voluntary provisions. Under ECL norms, companies cannot make floating provisions. Hence IBHFL has proactively classified certain accounts as Stage 3 (including Zee group, CCD group) and provided against them.
