RECENT DEVELOPMENT THAT WILL UNLOCK THE VALUATION:
Two year dispute between Wadia Group and French food major Danone came to an end over the control of Biscuit major Britannia Industries. Both parties have reached an agreement under which Danone will sell its 25.48% stake to Wadias and exit Britannia.
The development seems to be positive for Britannia as if now the Wadias will be able to take strategic decision with ease. The future course could be charted without any hurdle. Britannia could explore many new related business which are growing at rapid pace like mineral water, fruit juice and dairy product.

Danone exit won’t hamper the growth of Britannia as for past couple of years Danone was not providing any technical assistance because of dispute over the control. Danone itself has exited the biscuit business by selling its worldwide biscuit business to Kraft.

Danone if enters Indian market on its own it won’t be any direct threat to Britannia as Danone is more known for Baby food product and Dairy product. Its coming to India could be a threat to Nestle and Amul rather than Britannia.

INVESTMNET RATIONAL:
At current price stock is trading at PE multiple of 16x while industry average is 22x.
Strong brand and leadership position in the bakery product.
The increasing utilization of Baddi facility for manufacturing high end product is reducing the excise burden.
The power brand (Tiger, 50:50, Marie Gold, Good Day) are showing double digit growth.
Defensive sector.
The ownership battle coming to an end will help the company move into next phase of growth.
Stock underperformance as compared to the peers could be attributed to its low liquidity. Now ownership row solved we could see bonus and split in the coming months.
We feel the price for 25.48% stake could be somewhere near Rs1000crore. This could be at premium of 25% from the current market price.

VALUATION:
At current market price of Rs1447, the stock is trading at PE multiple of 17x on trailing twelve month EPS of Rs84. The PE industry average of FMCG Company is more than 22x. If we value the stock at 22x the fair price come at around Rs1848. Another upside could be seen because of clarity on the ownership structure.
We also expect the dividend payout ratio to increase in the coming year as the acquisition is financed by debt.


CONCLUSION:
We expect at least 25-30% gain from the current level in period of 6 months time.
