Comparison With Peers:

Cochin Shipyard is the peer of the Mazagon. The Cochin Shipyard is currently trading at P/E of 6.6, and Mazagon is also placed similar at P/E of 6 based on FY19-20 numbers. However, the order book size of Cochin Shipyard is just 15000 Crores as on 31.03.2020 and Mazagon has 54000 Crores.

Recommendation on Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders IPO:

Review and Recommendation of InvestorZone are 5/10. Pros: 1. The company is a direct beneficiary of the "Make In India" initiative in defense projects. 2. Strong order book of 54000 Crores. 3. Reasonable valuation. Almost similar to what we are getting in Cochin Shipyard. 4. The company was incorporated as a Private Limited Company in 1934 and in 1960, taken over by the government of India. So, they have rich experience in defense projects, especially for the Navy. 5. Strong GMP, means good listing is expected. Cons: 1. The new DPP Policy where private players are seen as a strategic partner to build defense capabilities will increase competition for Mazagon, which until now enjoying the monopoly. Recently, the Govt. of India has also increased the FDI limit from 49% to 74% via the automatic route. This will also increase competition from global players. 2. Cochin Shipyard, peer to Mazagon, in 2017 came up with an IPO at Rs. 434 and currently, trading at 317. So, the peer hasn't performed well on bourses, despite excellent performance in top-line and bottom-line in the last 3 years. This shows that the market is not ready to give value, especially to PSU companies. 3. EBITDA from the business is just 5% in the FY19-20. Other Income, which is mainly interest income from bank deposit helps the company to get a good bottom line. Else from the core business, the company margins are very less.

    The road ahead is tough for Mazagon Dock.

    2. The aim of these policy changes is to make the Defence sector competitive under the “Make in India” initiative. This will allows private players to bid for the defense projects.

    3. Until this, Mazagon Dockyard was getting a significant portion of the order book on a nomination
    basis. However, from hereon, to get new projects they have to go for a competitive bidding process.

    1. As on 30.07.2020, the company has a strong order book of 54000 Crores. These projects are awarded by the Ministry of Defence.

    2. Order Book currently comprises of building and construction of four ‘P-15B’ destroyers, four ‘P-17A’

    SWOT Analysis of Mazagon Dockyards:

    1. Strength

    (i) The company is having a fairly good order book position at present with two frontline warship
    projects comprising of four Frigates and four Destroyers and one submarine project comprising of
    six Scorpene class submarines.

    (ii) The company has a vast repository of legacy data pertaining to shipbuilding and submarine
    construction. A highly valuable Technical Information Centre(TIC) is existing within the company

    2. Weakness

    (i) The real estate availability of the company is limited to 75 acres, which restricts operations of
    large-scale shipbuilding.

    (ii) Depleting strengths of experienced blue-collar work force due to retirements.

    3. Opportunites

    (i) Indian Navy requires a large number of frontline warships to meet the required force levels. This
    affords good business opportunities for shipbuilding companies across the country, including the
    Mazagon Dockyard.

    (ii) The company can facilitate the ‘Make In India’ initiative promulgated by the GoI, for some of
    the critical ship-borne systems/ equipment in close liaison with OEMs.

    4. Threats

    (i) The Defence procurement procedure adopted by the Government of India, which focuses on “Make Indian. Buy Indian”, has encouraged the domestic private sector to invest and participate in defence production. The company will have to prepare for an era beyond the “nomination” era as private sector shipbuilders would like the government to introduce competitive bidding for warship building. The new Defence Procurement Procedure promulgated by the MoD also encourages private sector participation in the acquisition of defense assets.

    (ii) Stiff competition from established foreign players. There is stiff competition from various private sector shipyards in the international markets such as China, Japan, and South Korea. Based on their stronger market positions, competitive labor cost, government supports and larger production capacities, these shipyards may compete vigorously on price.

    (iii) Excessive dependence on the Ministry of Defence and the Indian Navy to procure its order

      (i) The Peer Company is Cochin Shipyard which is trading at P/E of 13.61.

      (ii) As per 6MFY18 financials, the Mazagon Dock has a PAT of is 285 Cr . The annualized profit would be close to 570 Cr.

      (iii) The EPS would be 25.

      (iv) If we give P/E between 15-18, the Price could be in the range of (375-450).
