Gujarat Gas (GGAS) reported a strong growth in net profit on account of higher realizations. However, given the regulatory overhang on the stock, we recommend a Neutral rating on the stock. Top-line growth of 28.0% yoy driven by higher realization: The companys top-line increased by 28.0% yoy to `836cr mainly on account of higher realization (partially offset by lower volumes). The average sales realization grew by 42.6% yoy to `28.1/scm, led by hike in selling prices in both, industrial retail and CNG segments. However, natural gas volume sold fell by 9.5% yoy to 295mmscm during the quarter. Higher other income boosts bottom-line growth: The cost of goods sold increased by 42.6% yoy to `699cr on account of higher proportion of expensive RLNG sales (47% of total volumes). Hence, the EBITDA grew by only 16.2% yoy to `137cr, despite sales growth of 28.0% yoy. Other income increased by 87.8% yoy to `19cr. Consequently, the companys net profit increased by 24.8% yoy to `100cr. Outlook and valuation: The companys volumes have declined gradually during the past one year on account of higher price of spot LNG. Going forward, we believe that high price of LNG will continue to impact the volume growth of the company. Further, the recent proposal to cap gas marketing margin by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) remains an overhang on the stock. At current levels, the stock is trading at 13.1x and 12.7x CY2012E and CY2013E earnings, respectively. Given the regulatory overhang, we maintain our Neutral rating on the stock.

Investment arguments
RLNG to mute volume growth decline: Over the past one year, there have been some delays in receiving gas from KG-D6 on account of declining gas production. The company is ensuring that the shortfall in volume is compensated by higher RLNG procurement. Further, the recent Gujarat High Courts verdict to compulsorily convert all cars to natural gas could result in higher demand for gas which is likely to support volumes for GGAS over the medium term. Regulatory overhang to persist: After the verdict of the Delhi HC, the companys marketing margin remains outside the purview of PNGRB. However, PNGRB has indicated that it aims to regulate the marketing margins charged by the utilities. This could potentially impact GGASs tariffs and margins adversely in case there is a cap on marketing margin.

Outlook and valuation


The companys volumes have declined gradually during the past one year on account of higher price of spot LNG. Going forward, we believe that high price of LNG will continue to impact the volume growth of the company. Further, the recent proposal to cap gas marketing margin by PNGRB remains an overhang on the stock. At current levels, the stock is trading at 13.1x and 12.7x CY2012E and CY2013E earnings, respectively. Given the regulatory overhang, we maintain our Neutral rating on the stock.
