Galaxy Surfactants: Buy

Galaxy Surfactants: Buy

Galaxy Surfactants: CMP Rs 2,231 Target Rs 2569 Upside: 15.1% Rationale: Galaxy Surfactants is a market leader in oleochemical-based surfactants, which is used in personal and home care products including skin care, oral care, hair care, cosmetics, toiletries and detergent products. The company has been increasing its share of high margin specialty care products in it’s portfolio which now accounts for ~ 40% of it’s revenues while the balance is accounted for by the performance surfactant business. The company has a very strong relationship with MNC clients like Unilever, P&G, Henkel, Colgate-Palmolive and supplies raw materials to them not only in India but also in US, EU and MENA region. Though the company’s operations had been impacted due to the Covid-19 outbreak in Q1FY21 we expect revenues to bounce back strongly in Q2FY21 given the company’s exposure to the personal and home care segment and recovery in the specialty segment. We recommend a buy on the stock with a target price of Rs. 1997. Source: Pixabay
