INDUSTRY OUTLOOK:
The Indian pharmaceutical industry is expected to grow by 10-12 per cent during 2013-14, says a recent study by ICRA. The main driver for growth will come from generic opportunities in the US. Generic opportunities in US will continue to drive revenue growth for Indian pharma companies. Drugs worth $80 billion are expected to go off patent over the next four to five years. Indian companies have lined up strong product pipelines of pending abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs). Acquisitions by Indian companies to add technical capabilities and focus on strengthening branded business (albeit on a small scale) are also likely to drive growth going forward as companies feel the need to diversify. The impact of new drug price control order (DPCO) though expected to be limited, could also get offset by volume expansion and efforts of industry participants to take price hike in rest of the portfolio.

VALUATION &OUTLOOK:
We feel the stock is undervalued. With the FY13 EPS of Rs 3.1 and FY14E EPS of Rs 4, stock is trading at P/E of 3.5 to FY14E EPS. The stock is heavily discounted compared to its peer. We value the stock at 5X. The Fair Value comes at Rs 20.
The outlook remains good and growth is expected to be robust in coming quarters. The new product launches and export earnings will be positive for the stock.
While valuation we have conservatively valued the company and taken P/E 5 because of the small size and debt risk the company has. 

CONCLUSION:
Investors with 6-8 months time horizon could take position. Downside in the stock remains limited.
