Markets Ride The Modi Wave

Markets ZOOMED to record highs after exit polls showed that the BJP is all set for a COMFORTABLE victory for the third time in a row! Yes, this is what everyone had predicted. But in the last month, several factors (low voter turnout, weird Modi campaigning) led to a spike in uncertainty. FYI - after the exit poll release, the India VIX, a volatility indicator, crashed 19% to hit a cool 19.9. Lower VIX = lower uncertainty which is another positive.

It’s not just exit polls either. Investors are also happy about a bunch of positive macro signals. ICYMI - India’s FY24 GDP growth came in at 8.2%, soaring past all estimates. Overall growth was led by a solid performance in manufacturing, mining and construction sectors. For those worried about consumption growth, which is a legit concern, May’s GST collections rose +10% YoY to Rs 1.73 lakh cr. Ultimately, what everyone cares about is stability in GOI policy, which is why they are happy about the exit poll estimates. 🥳

As Axis Securities put it: “If the Lok Sabha results on 4th June materialize as per the exit poll direction, our country is likely to enter a ‘Golden Phase’ of political stability and policy continuity. The Indian economy is in a sweet spot of growth and remains the land of stability against the backdrop of a volatile global economy. With this expectation, the prospects of the Indian economy appear notably brighter and more promising in the upcoming years.”

That said, here’s a mandatory health warning: exit polls CAN be wrong. They’ve been wrong in the past, both on outcomes and margins of victory & loss, so take it as an encouraging sign and move on with your day. 📈

Kronos Lab Sciences IPO Review

Kronox Lab Sciences IPO opened for subscription today! The price band is fixed at Rs 129-136 p/sh. The company aims to raise Rs 130 cr from the IPO. 💸

Founded in 2008, Kronox makes specialty chemicals for a wide range of industries including pharmaceuticals, biotech and metals! Their secret sauce is making ‘high purity’ fine chemicals of various grades ranging from 10 to 100 mesh. Kronox also has clients in over 20 countries including the US, Australia, UK and China. Fun fact: its export revenue has grown at a solid 37% CAGR over FY21-FY23. They also have three manufacturing facilities in Gujarat, which are pretty close to port facilities in Mundra and Kandla. 🏭

FYI - this IPO is completely an ‘Offer for Sale’. ’That means all the money raised will be used to provide an exit to the owners, which is a bit of a negative tbh. 👎

9MFY24 snapshot:

  • Revenue: Rs 68 cr; -9% YoY

  • EBITDA: Rs 20.5 cr; +14% YoY

  • EBITDA Margin: 30.23% vs 24.1% YoY

  • PAT: Rs 15 cr; +10% YoY

Big Picture: The entry barriers to Kronox’s business are pretty high. This is good because it means competition isn’t a big concern. That said, Kronox is a smaller player compared to its unlisted peers. The global chemical & pharma industry has also been going through a downturn in FY24, which explains Kronox’s topline drop in 9MFY24. A LOT depends on its ability to expand, execute and ride the upcycle wave whenever it comes. FWIW - the IPO is reasonably priced and current grey market data suggests it may list at a WHOPPING 60% premium. 🤑
