• Currently, captive consumption of yarn stands at ~35% of total yarn production.
• Margin expansion on qoq basis is on account of lower raw material prices.
• Total yarn sales consist of ~35% and ~65% of blended/synthetic and cotton yarn respectively. Increase in the crude prices is likely to have some impact on blended/synthetic yarn margins. Company may pass on this impact to customers depending on global synthetic yarn prices.
• As per management, no renegotiation requests are received from customers on account rupee depreciation.
• Management expects that demand supply of cotton is expected to be in deficit for FY19. This will keep cotton prices high going forward.
• Company expects Indian cotton prices to move closer to international levels (currently Indian prices at 13% discount).
• Company also highlighted that industry yarn spreads in India may moderate on the back of increase in Indian cotton prices.
• Company is planning a capex of Rs1,400cr over next two years. This would be spread equally between the yarn and fabric segments.
• From this capex, company plans to add 100,000 spindles and modernize its existing units. In fabric segment it plans to increase processing capacity to 180mn mtrs from 140 mtrs currently.
• Share of the fabric sales is expected to increase to 40-42% from 35% currently, after completion of planned capacity addition.
