AMBITIOUS EXPANSION PLAN:
NFCL is charting an ambitious expansion plan to expand its operating capacity from the current 1.2 million tones to about 1.7 million tons per annum. The expansion is being planned keeping in mind the availability of additional natural gas reserves in nearby Krishna-Godavari basin.


SECTOR OUTLOOK:
According to new fertilizer policy, govt will not fix the producer`s price for the new units. Each new unit will be free to decide the price at which it wants to sell its product. However, the domestic fertilizer prices for the farmer will continue to be regulated. The international price-parity formula for the domestic urea manufacturer would be adopted.


INVESTMENT RATIONAL:
Sector is poised for rerating.
New fertilizer policy to attract investment in the sector.
Presently India has to import fertilizer due to shortage.
Gas supply from D6 by RIL will make available essential input to the fertilizer sector. This will help the fertilizer company to operate in full capacity and even go for expansion.
Ongoing expansion plan in the company will add to its top line and bottom line.
Stock is trading below its book value.
