Skipper continued to deliver a strong performance in 2QFY18. Its net revenue grew by 31.9% YoY to Rs5.1bn led by strong volume execution in Engineering Products business. However, GST-led disruption restricted revenue growth in PVC business. Though reported EBITDA dipped by 7.1% YoY to Rs516mn, adjusted EBITDA grew by 19.9% YoY. Owing to lower margin, higher depreciation and tax rate, its reported PAT declined by 30.2% YoY to Rs232mn, while adjusted PAT rose by 3.9% YoY. We continue to believe that a sizeable order book, huge imminent opportunity and diversification into PVC business continue to place Skipper firmly on a higher growth trajectory. Revising our target multiple to 17x (from 15x earlier) on the back of strong revenue visibility and steady margin profile, we reiterate our BUY recommendation on the stock with a revised Target Price of Rs289 (from Rs254 earlier).
