We would like to share with you a report on Acrysil (BSE Code – 524091). We believe it’s a good company that can grow at decent pace over the longer term and has the potential to make it big.
It’s one of the 4 companies in the world that makes use of Schock Gmbh’s technology for the manufacturing of quartz sinks.
Globally, SS Sinks dominate the kitchen sinks market; however, the demand for quartz sinks is growing rapidly in double digits. 10 years back quartz sinks used to account for less than 3% share of the kitchen sinks market and now around 10%.
Recently, the company tied up with IKEA AG (Switzerland) for manufacturing and supply of composite quartz sinks for their global requirement and also expanding capacity for the same.
For us the stock has proved to be good as we initiated the coverage on the same for our Premium Members around 16 odd levels (adjusted for split and bonus) in 2011 and currently the stock is trading around 170-180 odd levels (10-11x in 9 years).
We continue to like the company even around current levels. In fact, in our 12th Nov’20 update, we assigned a Positive rating to the stock. Our Positive rating is akin to Buy rating given by others.

Acrysil (BSE – 524091) – Sep’11 Alpha stock
(12th Nov’20 – Sep’20 earnings update)
CMP – 157.05 (BSE)
Rating – Positive – 5% weightage; this is not an investment advice (refer rating interpretation)
Acrysil has reported very good set of results for the quarter ending Sep’20.
On consolidated and on YOY basis the company has reported 7.01% growth in sales in the Sep’20 quarter, 10.88% growth in gross profits, 27.41% growth in EBITDA and 71.79% growth in PBT.
The company could achieve the above performance on the back of good demand from the export markets. In the domestic market the demand was initially slow; however, it started picking up towards the end of the Sep’20 quarter and is expected to make a good comeback in H2.
As far as international markets are concerned, there was a good traction July month onwards. In the international markets, the company primarily sells Quartz sinks and the situation is such that it is almost running at 100% capacity utilization at its 500,000 quartz sinks facility.
Looking at the overall demand scenario and the tie up with IKEA, the company is expanding Quartz sinks capacity by 20% to 600,000 sinks per annum and the same will be commercialized in Q4 FY 21.
In the domestic market, besides the quartz sinks the company also sells SS Sinks and appliances. In the SS Sinks facility, the company has set up Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) plant for manufacture and coating of Designer Steel Sinks and has commenced production from the same from 1st Nov’20.
The PVD plant has an installed capacity for manufacturing and coating of 50,000 SS Sinks per annum.
On the front of raw materials, the gross margins of the company have expanded by 180 bps to 51.66% against 49.86% in Sep’20. It’s probably on account of both stable raw material prices and higher contribution from quartz sinks.
The EBITDA margins have also expanded to 20.55% against 17.26% in the Sep’19 quarter. Here again, higher contribution from exports have proved to be helpful as in the domestic markets the ASP expenses are much higher.
On the back of higher other income and lower finance cost the company has reported 71.79% growth in PBT.
On the front of balance sheet, there are some improvements with net borrowings being lower by around Rs 11 crore at the end of Sep’20 against Mar’20. Similarly, the company has generated good cash flows from operations for the half year ending Sep’20.
Other Important points:
- The company has signed up a strategic partnership with IKEA AG (Switzerland) for manufacturing and supply of composite quartz sinks for their global requirement
- The supply to IKEA retail stores will begin by the end of this Calendar year after the completion of the expansion of the Quartz sinks facility
- Acrysil has been identified by IKEA as one of the key suppliers and could therefore offer a good long-term opportunity to the company
- Besides IKEA, the company has also done tie ups through its subsidiaries in US and UK
- As per the management the new tie ups are being done with similar margin profile and lower credit periods
- Even after the expansion of Quartz facility to 600,000 sinks per annum, the company will still have enough land bank for further expansion to 900,000 sinks per annum
- The management is noticing strong demand for the quartz sinks in the developed markets. 10 years back Quartz sinks share was only around 3% in the overall sinks market and the same is now around 10%
- On the back of both good demand and Acrysil being the most cost-efficient player, the management is hopeful of capturing higher market share and sustaining good growth rate
With the people spending more time at home, the home improvement space is witnessing good traction. Domestically as well, the demand is likely to pick up.
On the back of tie up with IKEA and other tie ups in countries like US, UK, the demand for company’s products is expected to be robust for the next few years.
The company is also showing signs of improvement in working capital management and cash flow generation. With the same, it should be able to fund capacity expansions through internal accruals or limited add-on debt.
While the EBITDA margins of the company have expanded to 20-21% in H1, even if the company is able to sustain around 18% in H2, the company should be able to close FY 21 with PAT of around Rs 28 crore.
The stock is currently quoting at a market cap of Rs 420 crore which is around 15 times FY 21 (E) earnings. We believe, if the company is able to sustain good performance, there’s scope for re-rating in valuations from the current levels.
