1 LKR Royal Ceramics Lanka PLC Interim Update Q4 FY 14/15 Equity Research Annual revenue increased by 13% compared to the previous year while gross profit margin slightly increased to 3% from 29%. 55% increase in net profits could be attributed to reduction in finance expenses (31%) and increase in profits (114%) of the associate company (LB Finance). Investment Considerations The country recorded a GDP of 7.4% in 214 with a 8% growth estimate by 218 indicating a positive economic outlook in years ahead. While the industry sector contribution to the GDP stood upto 32.3%, construction sub sector recorded the highest contribution to this growth in 214 signalling a positive trajectory for the demand of tile and ceramic products in the local market. We can expect an increase consumption of tile and ceramic products considering strong positive correlation between construction sector and tile and ceramic industry along with prevailing per capita income growth in Sri Lanka (11% estimated CAGR by 218). RCL holds dominant position in both local wall and floor tile markets following the acquisition of a controlling stake in Lanka Ceramic PLC and its subsidiaries which has made the RCL to realize synergies across the value chain to deliver exceptional results. Proving its outdone performance, Group topline and bottom line has recorded the highest in FY15 since its inception while allocating 26% of profit as dividend. Sri Lanka's tile and ceramic exports increased by 8% CAGR since 212 witnessing a growing demand for local ceramic products in international markets. RCL has been able to capitalize this demand growth by recording 88% YoY growth of its export revenue for FY15 while planning to expand its global footprint to North American market as well in FY16. While the industry significantly benefited from lowering electricity tariffs and LPG gas prices and resulted reduction in production expenditure, RCL growth is still vulnerable to the lack of streamlining of the mining and quary sector and the inadequately governed imported tile market. This negatives may not augurs well for RCL's operating income growth. RCL added one franchised showroom in Avissawella, along with two second grade sales locations in Thalawathugoda and Wattala while construction of new showrooms are underway in Kadawatha and Batticaloa. Six new showrooms will be added to the showroom network while nine showrooms to be upgraded, and five to be relocated in FY 15/16. ROE has recorded 18% for FY 14/15, gradually regaining its usual higher ROE figures which were recorded prior to CERA acquisition. Although RCL's gearing was significantly high subsequent to the acquisition of CERA, RCL has been able to noticeable reduce it to 14% from 131% during FY 14/15 while reducing the finance cost as well. RCL is trading at a trailing PE is at 8.8X and PBV is at 1.32X, comparatively attractive to the respective sector multiples at 17.6X and 2.3X.

We believe the energy cost reduction and favorable industry prospects would augur well for the company, particularly considering its monopolistic position in the domestic tile industry. We have revised our forecast upward mainly on LB Finance positive credit growth outlook and maintain our position in growth outlook for tile industry. On the revised growth estimates of the company and reduced hurdle rate, we revise our valuation upward to LKR 167.1, taking a cost of equity of 13.34%.
