Nakoda, an ISO 9001 – 2000 company, is one of the prominent players in the Polyester Filament Yarn Industry in India. From a modest capacity of 354 MTPA in 1986, Nakoda grew to 50,000 MTPA capacity company by 2008. With the completion of its ongoing backward integration/ expansion / forward integration project with a capital outlay of Rs 333 Cr, Nakoda will achieve a capacity of 1,40,000 MTPA by August / September, 2010.

Further, company also acquired POY production facilities of Indian Organic Chemicals Ltd., Chennai. The equipement of same were used at surat plant for further expansion and to enhance production. In the year 2004 POY spinning capacity has been expanded to 31000 MTPA.

In the year 2007 company undertook expansion envisaging addition of 20,000 MTPA of Fully Drawn Yarn (FDY) to the existing capacity. The FDY plant became fully operational in November 2007.

    Yes, Nakoda is a significant player in the polyester filamant yarn industry. I observed some concerns while checking the numbers:
    i)The cashflows, especially operating cash flow is negative for the last five years.
    ii)Debt/equity ratio is very high at 2.5 in comparison with industry standards.
    iii)Margins are not great even in value added products in the filament industry.
    iv)South Korean acquisition to the bottomline contribution will be known in future (I may be a pessimist)
    Yes, the company has rewarded investors by way of bonus and stock split.

    Dhingra sir,
    I happened to buy a few thousand shares of Nakoda with avg price of around Rs.14.6. I dont think they are making an EPS for CY2010. From the management interview that was given on one of the business channels, they were talking around 1400Cr. topline which could roughly translate to an EPS of around 5 (and not 7). That makes the company sort of, fairly valued for this year, around 15. While your timeline is 2 years, it looks like, the company might slowly grow, if past is what to be extrapolated. What kinds of target do you have in mind, for the next 2 years, for this company. We dont really understand, what kind of growth they are expecting to have, but looks like, they have done some wind energy investments, which they are hoping, would boost their NPM.


    • I always book partial profits when the share price goes up by 50%.I also book 100% LOSS if the share price drops by 25% from the price I entered..The price one enters the share is most crucial..I avoid buying when there is a good news. I try and enter when there is some bad news on the counter..
