Rating – Positive – 3% weightage; this is not an investment advice (refer rating interpretation at the end)


Jasch Industries (BSE – 500220)

Jasch Industries operates in 2 businesses now:

  1. Coated Fabrics division – It manufactures PU/PVC Coated Fabrics (also known as synthetic Leather or Artificial Leather) and Polyurethane Resin
  2. Industrial Gauges and Equipment – It makes Radiation-based Gauging Systems

PU/PVC Coated fabrics and PU resin are mostly used in footwear industry, in garment industry (as lining material) and in automobiles (as seat covers).

These are also used in furniture upholstery material, purses, bags, luggage and in the manufacture of sports goods & accessories.

Most of Synthetic Leather Units in India manufacture only PVC Leather and Jasch is one of the few significant manufacturers of PU Synthetic Leather.

Radiation-based Gauging Systems are used for online measurement of thickness, grammage, moisture & ash content in paper making industry, on-line measurement of thickness & coating weight in plastics, steel, sheet rolling, galvanizing, aluminium foil & non-ferrous metal rolling industry.


Scheme of Arrangement

In 2022, the company proposed a scheme for demerger of Industrial Gauges and Equipment division to Jasch Gauging Technologies Ltd (Resulting company) and consequent listing of the same on the exchanges.

Basically, the Industrial Gauges division will be transferred to Jasch Gauging while the Coated Fabrics division will be retained in Jasch Industries.

Jasch Gauging will subsequently get listed on the exchanges.

In lieu of the demerger, the existing shareholders of Jasch Industries (as on the record date) shall be issued 2 shares of Jasch Gauging for every 5 shares held in Jasch Industries.

Further, the existing share capital of Jasch Industries will be reduced and post reduction the shareholders holding 5 shares of Jasch Industries will continue to hold 3 shares and the remaining shares will be extinguished.

To sum it up, if you buy 5 shares of Jasch Industries before the record date, you will be allotted 2 shares of Jasch Gauging which will be subsequently listed and your 5 shares of Jasch Industries will be reduced to 3.

The company has received the NCLT approval for the above scheme and the record date should be announced in some time. Jasch Gauging will get listed 3-5 months post the record date.


Scope for value unlocking

As mentioned above, currently 2 entirely different businesses are housed in Jasch Industries and thus it makes sense for the company to demerge and separate the two.

Here’s the performance of the 2 divisions over the last few years:

Source: Jasch Industries Annual Reports

Source: Jasch Industries Annual Reports

As per our understanding, the segmental sales and EBIT reported for Gauges division includes the other income.

The company accrues around Rs 3-4 crore other income annually since the past few years which is largely in the form of interest income on FDRs.

At the end of FY 23, the company had Rs 49.7 crore of Bank deposits (FDRs).

The annual interest outgo has only been around Rs 1 crore since the past few years. So, the EBITs mentioned above can largely be considered as PBTs for the respective divisions.

Coming back to the performance of the 2 divisions, both have been growing well and reasonably profitable; however, clearly, the Industrial Gauges division has been growing much faster and is significantly more profitable in comparison to the Coatings division.

On TTM basis, Rs 4 crore PAT can be attributed to Coatings division and Rs 17-18 crore PAT to Gauges division.

What’s interesting though is that the management expects significant improvement in profitability in the Coatings division in FY 24.

Assuming there’s no improvement in profitability of coatings division, at around Rs 4 crore PAT, we believe post demerger Jasch Industries should be easily valued around Rs 40 crore market cap.

Regarding the industrial gauges division which will be listed as Jasch Gauging, the PAT should be around Rs 17-18 crore (assuming no change).

Here’s how the market cap of Jasch Gauging will look like at various PE ratios:

PE Jasch Gauging Expected Market cap (in cr.)
12 210
15 262.5
20 350

The current market cap of Jasch Industries is Rs 275 crore.

Thus, sum of the parts can be greater than the whole if the market ascribes higher valuations to much more profitable Industrial Gauges division.

The coatings division can also surprise on the upside if the company achieves the stated expectations of increase of Rs 5 crore in operating profit before tax for FY 24.



Since the last 2 years there’s been a significant increase in the profits of Industrial Gauges division due to higher sales and operating leverage. While the company has been consistent in terms of sales growth, the fortunes of the division are linked to investment by user-industries on capital goods or on quality control equipment. Fall in demand and sales can significantly impact the profitability and the valuations of the industrial gauges division.

Over the past few months there’s been a significant rise in small cap index and small cap stocks. In case of a major correction, stocks across the board will get de-rated and can impact the valuations of Jasch Industries and Jasch Gauging.

The stock is only listed on BSE and being a micro-cap, the average daily volumes are low which can have significant impact cost while buying and selling.


Disclosure: I do not have any holding in Jasch Industries.
