Should you invest in Capacite Infraprojects at Rs. 245-250 a share?

Incorporated in August 2012, Capacit’e Infra has grown itself extremely fast. Revenues of the company have grown from Rs. 216.58 crore (FY14) to Rs. 1,165.97 crore (FY17), i.e. a growth of 438% in 3 years. Its profit after tax (PAT) has grown from Rs. 3.57 crore to Rs. 69.38 crore in the same period, i.e. a growth of 1,843% in 3 years.

On a YoY basis, while its revenues jumped 36% from last year’s Rs. 860 crore, EBITDA registered a growth of 37%, from Rs. 122 crore to Rs. 167 crore, and PAT jumped 43% as compared to Rs. 48.39 crore. As on May 31, 2017, the company has a very healthy order book of Rs. 4,602 crore, comprising 56 residential, commercial and institutional projects. At Rs. 1,166 crore of revenues for FY17, the current order book of Rs. 4,602 crore itself is equivalent to 4 years of revenues, which is very encouraging.

The company has a long list of reputed clients, such as Oberoi Realty, Prestige Group, Lodha Developers, Kalpataru, Wadhwa Group, Rustomjee, Godrej Properties, Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust and Brigade Enterprises, among others. Working for such kind of big developers and earning repeat orders from them provides a great comfort as far as company’s credentials are concerned.

At Rs. 250 a share, Capacit’e Infra is valued at 18 times its trailing 12-months diluted EPS and carries a market cap of around Rs. 1,700 crore. Though nobody expects its current growth to repeat itself in the next 3-5 years, but even if the company continues to keep a similar momentum going forward, the price of Rs. 250 a share the company is seeking seems extremely attractive for listing gains, as well as for medium to long term wealth creation. I would put this one in the same basket as Dmart was and hope this one too generates similar kind of returns for its successful allottees.

  1. Hi Shiv ji, Please advise if we can purchase in secondary market as a long term investment. People focus mainly on allotment and listing gains but if the company is good one can make more money than IPO Allotment by buying in secondary market and hold for medium/ long term.
    Based on your analysis at the time of PNB HF, I invested and in one year the price doubled. I plan to do same with Capacite..
    Many thanks for helping lot of retail investors. Keep up the good work with unbiased analysis.
