Investment rationale by Macquarie
We believe UTCEM will rebrand cement from CENT’s plants to UTCEM brands post acquisition. UTCEM’s category A brand vs. B/C for CENT could add Rs150-200/t to margins. Also, the plants are running at 70-75% utilisation and with some capex can be ramped up to +90% utilisation. These low hanging fruits can drive the margins of CENT’s assets closer to UTCEM’s margins post acquisition. While trailing earnings suggest 4-5% EPS dilution for UTCEM, an increase in efficiency and brand premium should make the deal EPS accretive.

Action and recommendation
 Maintain Outperform.
