SECTORAL OUTLOOK: 
The average domestic sugar price for the quarter ended on December 2008 increased 34% YoY (QoQ growth of 5%) to Rs 18.3 per Kg for S-30 grade. The sugar in the international market is currently $325 per MT translating at 16.5 per kg (fob). We have assumed 28% decline in 2009 sugar production to 19 mn mt which is lower than industry estimate of 20 mn mt. the decline is mainly expected in Maharashtra (35% decline) and Tamil Nadu decline of 27%. The production in expected to decline by 18.5%. However considering the excess production of 6mn mt in 2008 and opening inventory of 12 mn mt for current season ,we expect the sugar price to remain stable over next one year. We expect significant improvement in the price in the year 2010.

CHANGE IN TOTAL INCOME, OPERATING PROFIT, NET PROFIT:

More or less company has not shown any significant increase in the earning this can attributed to the nature of business it is in. company was profitable when the sugar cycle was on uptrend and prices of sugar was firm. As the price started declining in the market and the sugar cycle went into bearish mode ,the company went into losses. 2007-08 was bad years for sugar company. Now sugar is again on the bull run. Due to short supply of sugar sugar companies are expected to perform better. We expect Oudh sugar will  come out of red in the next fiscal on better realisation.

We expect significant increase in the opm and npm in the next quarter. OPM is expected to be around 20% and NPM at 4%.

VALUATION:
 We expect the company to turnaround next fiscal on account of good sales realization. This will be reflected in the stock price of the company.

CONCLUSION:  
The stock is here for accumulation on every dip. Medium term outlook is intact as the sugar price is on Bull Run. Government intervention in run up to the price is also not expected as inflation too has significantly come down.
