OUTLOOK AND VALUATION:
IGL reported a good number in the second quarter ended. We maintain it will maintain a double digit growth rate in sales for next couple of years. The company is having an ambitious plan to expand its CNG station coverage to nearby areas like greater Noida and Noida. It also proposes to expand its PNG network to newer geographies in and around Delhi.

Decreasing price of gas will further increase the operating profit margin and hence profitability.

The other positive is that company is debt free.
Right now company is trading at 9X to twelve month trailing earning and 7X to FY2009E earning. We feel at least there is some room of appreciation from this value. We expect the price to be in range of Rs 140.The downside in the stock is very limited.

CONCLUSION:
The stock is for risk averse investor. We feel downside very limited as well as the upside potential is 20% to 25%.
