Results reproduced from BSEINDIA

The latest Q3 results of FY08  are very encouraging with top line growing by more than 30% over Q2 FY08 with more than 50% increase in PAT over Q2FY08.

PLL has an equity capital of Rs. 9.2 crores.Expected top line for FY08 is Rs.150 crores and Rs.250 Crores for FY 09.Based on Q3 results expected EBIDTA for FY 08 is Rs. 20 crores and an EPS of Rs.12 per share. Market capitalisation of PLL at CMP of Rs. 60 is less than Rs. 60 crores, and share is available at P/E of  5, which appears to be highly under-priced for this high technology R & D driven company, catering to the most important segment of the Industry. With Mkt. Cap. / EBIDTA ratio of less than 3 for FY09 and PEG of less than 0.2, the share is a screaming BUY at CMP.

Buy is recommended at CMP of Rs. 60 with 2 years HOLD.

    The amount of equity dilution seems to be huge year after year. Has diluted more than 50% in 3 years. Do you think this could be a concern? Can we find any details about the credibility of the management?
