The company has recently set a factory to make a new product 'Reinforced Building Boards' new age multi-purpose cement board with a wide range of applications. The project cost was Rs. 40 cr. for setting up 60,000 MT production facility, funded through fund raised by shares through QIP route on 24.01.07.

RBB is extensively used for false ceiling. Doors, Partitions pre-fabricated structures. Wall Paneling, backliners and to variety of other applications in residential, commercial as well as industrial segments. These boards have gained wide market acceptance and is widely preferred over wood/gypsum based products. There is a wider scope for exports to Srilanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Middle Eastern Countries.

Its manufacturing plant at Nagpur, Maharashtra, has 28 Murata Twin air jet machines, with a total of 1816 spindle position. The yarn produced, range from 100% Polyester to Polyester-Viscose blends (85/15). The plant produced 6619 tonnes of yarn after the capacity was increased by 50%.

Visaka's Yarns are used by leading textile mills to manufacture a wide range of fabrics including shirtings, suitings, fashion fabrics, upholstery and embroidery laces. The company exports 40% of Yarn production to Europe.


The main raw materials for Building Products are Asbestos Fibre and Cement.

PAT company during 2006-2007, which has made VIL a market leader with an installed capacity of 6,30,000 tonnes by the end of 2006-2007, it has set up its plants in multiple locations which enable it to reduce its cost component incurred due to transportation of raw materials and finished goods. It has its plants strategically placed which helps its marketing network to work efficiently.

The availability of the product in multiple outlets help to capture the market faster and improve the company's market share. Visaka is having a strong network of 4000 Stockists/Dealers throughout India. The easy accessibility of its network is appreciated by the consumers of the company. As VIL has its depots in 36 major cities and towns, supply to the end consumer is more smoother.

Foray into RBB will have synergy with the ACS division:

Reinforced Building Board is a new age multi-purpose cement board with a wide range of applications. These boards have gained wide market acceptance and is widely preferred over wood/gypsum based products. The unique composition of manufacturing process makes this wood free eco friendly board the 'preferred' choice amongst Architects and Interior Designers. Boards are very economical when compared to the similar boards. They are resistant to environmental corrosion and are more durable and hence affordable. Urbanization is leading to high rise apartments where Reinforced Building Boards are used for Internal walls to reduce weight and increase in floor area. The demand for false roofing and partition board is increasing by 15% to 20% per annum due to increased construction activities whereas availability of wood based material is dwindling by around 10% every year. Re-inforced Building Boards has been slotted to capture this gap-in demand supply situation. Through the company's extensive network the product is marketed very efficiently, thereby increasing the demand for the product. RBB has a large market acceptance and is a synergy to the ACS division of Visaka, boosting up its revenues and profits.

Company has reported bumper results for 9 Months:

a) Topline has gone up by 39% as against 9 months of previous year.

b) PAT is up a massive 617% as PAT in 9 months of previous year.

c) Even Tax Provision is 15.58 crs. as against 2.85 cr. in 9 months previous year.

d) 9 months profits are higher by 264% as compared to profit of entire 07-08.

A.C. Sheets Ind. continues to grow at 15% which bodes well for Visaka and company may plan further expansions. It is already setting up 'RBB Sandwiched Panel' unit which will start production by Nov. '08.

In last one year, Visaka fortunes have changed dramatically. Due to sharp rise in demand, company has been able to pass on increased cost of cement and other R/M. Further, its profit margins have expanded dramatically. For Example last year, company was selling A.C. Sheets at around Rs. 88/-. In current year, A.C. Sheet prices are ruling around Rs. 130/-.

Myth/Facts about ACS:
a) The bias against the use of asbestos in a few countries is due to the adverse Western media coverage relating to altogether different types and usages of asbestos in these countries i.e. sprayed-on asbestos and friable asbestos insulation. Usage of blue variety in such applications resulted in unfortunate Western experience. These usages have since been discontinued in the West. In India, asbestos has never been used as sprayed insulation.

b) In India, only chrysotile variety is used. The fibres are mixed with cement. After all the fibres are locked into the matrix, there can be no air contamination.

c) Even in the West, studies of workers using chrysotile have no increased risks.

d) There is no risk whatsoever in living or working under A.C. Roof, as asbestos fibre are bonded with cement and do not release in the atmosphere.

e) Transportation of drinking water in A.C. Pipes is absolutely safe and is confirmed by WHO.

f) In India, A.C. Sheets have been used by railways for last 50 years whereover, 1 cr. people step everyday. A.C. Sheets have withstood the test of time with no reported casualty. Another major consumption of A.C. Sheets is in the roofing of FCI godowns where millions of tonnes of foodgrains are stocked.

g) India uses only 6% of asbestos produced in the world and rest is used in other countries.

h) U.S.A. still imports A.C. pipes for water transportation. Canada has reinforced asbestos to make asphalt asbestos compound for re-paving of roads.

i) 94% of asbestos produced worldwide is consumed by countries other than India. This confirms that these products do not cause the health problems as propagated by Industrial competitors.

Stock is trading at:

1) 2.72 x FY09E EPS.

2) 2.30 X FY10E EPS.

3) 0.50 x BVFY09E.

Needless to say that scrip is a screaming buy. It has un-interrupted dividend record of 16 years. Pays 30% dividend. Market cap is just 97 crs as against 09E sales of 540 crs. Dividend for 08-09 likely to be hiked to 45% which means tax free dividend yield can be nearly 8%. Promoters are investor friendly and aggressive. Turnover has grown from 5 crs. to 500 crs. in 15 years.A great buy altogther.
