Investment Rationale

Leader in Indian pesticides markets:

BCS is a market leader in the Indian Agrichemical Sector with a market share of 17%. Going ahead, there exists huge opportunity for BCS to grow its domestic business considering that penetration of pesticides in the Indian market is low compared to its Asian and Global peers. India produces approximately 16% of the world's total food grain, but utilises a mere 2% of pesticides. There exists under usage of agrichemicals by the Indian farmers and untapped opportunity available to the agrochemical companies.

To maintain its leadership position, BCS is continuously strengthening its capacity to provide products and combined solutions for the production of good quality food, feed, fibre and energy plants.

New innovative products – major driver of growth:

BCS's growth has been driven by its ability to introduce new products at minimal R&D costs on account of having access to its global parent's strong product portfolio. Bayer AG has a strong R&D base. BCS has been introducing 3-5 products every year, and the management has indicated that this trend would continue going forward as well. BCS spent Rs.13.8 cr on R&D in FY09 (0.99% of sales).

Striving all the time for providing innovative and effective solutions to the farmers’ pest problems, BCS has evaluated 42 new molecules and mixtures for use in various agricultural and horticultural crops and pest segments in the changing and dynamic scenario, post introduction of Genetically Modified Bt-Cotton in the country.

BCS continued its initiatives in contract farming vigorously in crops like cotton, fresh fruits and vegetables and provided the required guidance and inputs to farmers for plant protection and efficient crop management towards enhancing productivity and tapping the huge export potential.

Maintaining the Bayer tradition in Research & Development, in 2008, BCS secured registrations and launched Fenamidone 10 + Mancozeb 50 WP (Sectin 60 WP) – a broad-spectrum fungicide for use in Grape and Potato. During the year 2008, it has also obtained approvals for various herbicides exclusively for Export to other countries viz. Aclonifen Technical, Fentrazamide Technical and Fentrazamide 6.75 + Propanil 37.5 WP (Lecspro 44.25 WP).

In FY10 BCS has indicated the likely launches of globally renowned speciality acaricide Oberon 240 SC, to control mites affecting tea, chilli, brinjal and apple etc., Fipronil 80 WG (Jump 80 WG), an insecticide for use in rice; Imidacloprid 350 SC (Confidor Super), an insecticide for control of sucking pests in rice; Melody Duo 66.75 WP, a fungicide for use in grape and potato.

Pursuing its philosophy of offering new and better cost-effective solutions to farmers to manage insect

Pursuing its philosophy of offering new and better cost-effective solutions to farmers to manage insect pests, diseases and weed menace in various crops, BCS is evaluating a number of molecules for use in a variety of key crops. Launch of some of its products in small packs to cater the needs of niche customers, promoting Health & Hygiene on ready to use formulation/packs is also being planned. Going ahead, the company is likely to include fruits and vegetables (horticulture crops) too.

Bayer AG is accelerating the extension of its biotech and seed business. Following a record year in 2008, the company is continuing its strategy of expansion, aiming systematically to expand its fast-growing business in seed and plant traits in the coming years. The intention is to more than triple sales in the BioScience segment to around EUR 1.4 billion by 2018. In this context the company is planning to invest some EUR 3.5 billion in research and infrastructure for its biotech and seed business between now and 2018. Bayer CropScience internationally is currently investing the equivalent of roughly 27 percent of sales in the development of new BioScience products – a figure that puts it among the leaders in the industry in terms of research intensity. Almost 1,000 BioScience researchers and breeders are working on over 50 projects.

Innovation and R&D – key focus areas for BCS:

In order to meet the challenges of food production and optimise use of agricultural resources against the background of a continuously growing world population, intensive agricultural research is needed. BCS’s strong focus on innovation and substantial investments in Research & Development enables it to contribute significantly to global food safety and resolution of the aforesaid critical challenges.

The innovation focus will also help the Company to further gain the competitive advantage in a stringent product patent regime, which is rapidly taking shape in India. Moreover, due to the R&D focus on environmentally safe products, the Company remains well prepared to stay ahead of the competition amidst the constantly strengthening safety and residue standards. BCS has launched several such products recently in the new chemistry segment and also has a strong pipeline, which goes beyond the regulatory requirements of safety and residue levels.

BCS and GVK Biosciences Private, Hyderabad, India, have entered into a research cooperation in the area of early discovery chemistry. The objective is to speed up the search for promising active ingredients for innovative crop protection products. Under the agreement, BCS will integrate GVK BIO capacities in the early part of its Discovery chemistry process.

BCS wishes to further speed up the development of its successful crop protection R&D pipeline and look forward to working with GVK BIO, Asia’s leading contract research organization. GVK Biosciences has built world-class capabilities in early Discovery Chemistry.

BES division poised for growth:

The Environmental Science division has been maintaining its leading position as the market leader in the segments of public health and professional pest control. BCS continues to sponsor major symposia and seminars to promote general awareness, product knowledge and international trends in vector borne diseases management. Several techno commercial training programmes on safe use and handling of products were conducted in FY09. Bayer keeps a stringent eye on Quality Assurance, elevates the level of technological competence, and assures technical service to customers through long lasting partnerships. BES regularly provides technical support and training to the customers and thus greatly contributes in providing a pest free and disease free living.

The importance given to the public health is clear from the fact that in the Union Budget for FY10, the Govt has provided for Rs.497 crore for Central Government Health Scheme, Rs.663.53 crore for allopathic hospitals and dispensaries, Rs.1176.42 crore for medical education, training and research and Rs.225.32 crore for Public Health Schemes and Indian Council of Medical Research (Rs.184 crore). Provision of Rs. 196.69 crore has been made to upgrade Primary Health Centre, Community Health Centres and Sub-Cenrtres.

In India, urban malaria has emerged as major public health problem in many small, medium and metropolitan cities. Essentially a man made problem, urban malaria is the outcome of rapid and haphazard expansion of the cities, inadequate piped water supply, storage of water in cisterns, disuse or scarce use of wells, developmental activities, aggregation of migrant labour force and over all population movement. The developmental pace often outstrips mitigating measures undertaken by the municipal and health authorities.

Under this division, the growing awareness on vector borne diseases in the Public and Government Agencies is an opportunity. Resistance to synthetic pyrethroids by mosquitoes is an opportunity to BCS to launch Bendiocarb 80% WP, a carbamate insecticide, as resistance management tool. In the space spray market, BCS is planning to launch a state of art product “Aqua K-Othrine” which will provide a solution for need of a greener product in the market.

This segment is flooded with cheap generics, which eat into market share. However, BCS has tied up with Pest Control India Ltd and Godrej HiCare.

Exports to garner higher revenues:

BCS’s exports registered a CAGR of 24.4% during CY05-FY09, while its contribution to the company's total sales was in the range of 11-16%. Of the company's total export revenues, 80% of sales were to the Bayer AG group companies, indicating high outsourcing by these group companies from BCS.

Going ahead, BCS’s exports would be driven by the increase in outsourcing by the various Bayer group companies due to the cost advantage, regulatory leeway and quality offered by BCS. Globally, Bayer AG has a revenue base of Euro 4 bn from crop protection sales. BCS could benefit from outsourcing done by Bayer AG.

Land Bank - Hidden Value:

BCS has an idle land bank at Thane, where it has closed one of its plant and extended a VRS scheme to its employees there (it has written off Rs.30.5 cr towards VRS expenses in FY08). As per reports, it has around 132 acres having a market value on conservative basis of approximately Rs.8 cr per acre, totalling a land value of around Rs.1056 cr (per share value of Rs.267.3). The management plans to sell this land at appropriate valuations.

BCS and Lanxess India Private Limited (LIPL) had entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) dated November 18, 2004 wherein the economic interest in identified land and building at Thane was transferred to LIPL effective July 01, 2004 but the transfer of ownership was not effected pending approval from the Collector of Thane. Pursuant to the Exit Agreement dated February 28, 2008 between BCS and LIPL, which replaced the earlier MOU, LIPL has exited the aforesaid land and building in a phased manner by 2009 and accordingly, BCS has agreed to pay in a phased manner rupees equivalent to Euro 160 lacs, to LIPL. Out of the aforesaid amount payable, BCS has already paid Rs.2,384 lacs equivalent to Euro 40 lacs in February 2008.

Improving profitability:

BCS has posted a strong 27.3% CAGR in sales to Rs.1,394 cr over CY05-FY09 on the back of new product launches. New products in the last recent years have been contributing ~23% to the total sales. During CY06-FY08, EBITDA Margins fell from 13.1% to 7.7% due to high raw material prices and staff cost. However, with a fall in commodity prices, this trend has reversed and EBIDTA margins improved to 11.9% in FY09.

With debt equity ratio improving over the years from 0.42 in CY05 to 0.08 in FY09 it is likely that BCS would soon become a debt free company. Also the RoCE has improved drastically from 22.3% in CY05 to 35.1% in FY09.

Capex plans: BCS believes that in the medium to long term, GM rice technologies could

Capex plans:

BCS believes that in the medium to long term, GM rice technologies could attribute significantly to increasing rice productivity. Hence, it has taken up Rs.43 cr capex plan in FY10 and also intends to launch two to three products, including BT rice. It is also working on bio-research technology as well. BT rice is a variant that has been modified by means of biotechnology with genes from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) to produce toxins for resistance to insects.

BCS will continue to launch a minimum of two to three products in the market every year and going forward this will also reduce their monsoon dependency as well. It will continue to concentrate on development of stress resistant products like monsoon resistant, insect resistant, etc., to reduce the effect of unforeseen factors on BCS's products range.

New tie-ups and orders to drive growth:

BCS has tied up with rural retail operators like Haryali Kissan Bazaar, Tata Chemicals, ITC, Freshfields, Pest Control of India and Godrej in its bid to further augment its sales. Commendably, BCS has bagged an order worth Rs.13.7 cr from these companies to cater to their rural markets. BCS also does packing and supplies active ingredients in Jammu & Kashmir for achieving tax efficiencies. It also buys finished seeds, as it does not have the production facility for seeds. These new initiatives by BCS could help its growth trajectory.

Q2FY10 Performance:

BCS’s net sales increased by 15.9% y-o-y to Rs.482.2 cr in Q2FY10. The growth in sales was despite the fact that the Indian agriculture witnessed one of the worst droughts in its history. Q2FY10 was one of the worst quarters for the agrichem industry, which suffered from a poor monsoon and the price-erosion of products. Against this backdrop, BCS’s operating profit stood at Rs.88.2 cr, a growth of 10.7% y-o-y. The OPM for the quarter stood at 18.3%, compared to 19.2% in Q2FY09. The high cost of purchased goods was the key reason behind the decline in the OPM. Other income witnessed a drop of 24.9% to Rs.5.9 cr, while the interest outgo increased by 32.3% to Rs.3.7 cr y-o-y in Q2FY10. The PAT for BCS increased by 10.8% y-o-y to Rs.56.6 cr. However, the adjusted PAT grew by only 4.6%, as it had to provide for an exceptional item worth Rs.3.2 cr related to VRS. It earned EPS of Rs.13.5 in Q2FY10.

Quarter 1 and 2 are typically the best quarters historically for BCS based on the cropping seasons in India.

Risks and concerns:

ß The entry of generics in public health segment, slowing down of global economy, availability of funds for health segment, tolerances of some pests to insecticides are some of the risks and threats seen in the Environmental Science business.

ß BCS has ~13-14% revenues coming from exports and any adverse forex fluctuation could affect its earnings.

ß Agrochemicals are the last input in any agricultural operation and protect the final output i.e. crop. In case of India, most of the agricultural production is rain fed and hence highly dependent on monsoon. Hence, vagaries in season could affect the demand for agrochemicals and in turn impact our estimates.

ß BCS faces sales returns regularly. Any unusually large sales return could adversely impact sales and margins.

ß Market need and acceptance of new technologies by farming community is essential before commercial launch of new products.

ß Any inordinate delay in sale of land at Thane could result in dampening of the interest in the stock.

Conclusion

The conditions of the crop protection market have been quite favorable in the recent years. Good commodity prices, increasing demand for vegetables, labour shortage and government focus on food security have supported the market growth. Farmer’s positive mind-set to invest in profitable crops and low overall channel inventories has further added to the positive sentiments.

BCS has guided for double-digit growth in FY10, provided that prices remain stable. It also expects Bt Rice to be a significant contributor to its revenue, going ahead. BCS has 42 molecules under testing for launch; the company has been launching 2-3 new products every year and expect the same trend to continue in the future.

We expect new product launches to be a key driver for BCS’s domestic business. BCS has its export revenues from Bayer AG Group companies and these are set to increase given the cost advantage and quality offered by BCS. With the ushering in of WTO and implementation of patent regime, BCS is planning to introduce some excellent high technology products in crop protection and environment science divisions.

BCS reported Q2FY10 results better than the street’s expectations and compared to its peers despite poor monsoon. Overall, the monsoon has been below normal in India (21% deficient). However, late rainfall (in early October) has helped the country increase its water reservoir level, and brought it at the long-term average. Due to this, the Rabi season could see good sowing, as farmers who lost their crops in the Kharif season would like to take advantage of the elongated season.

Based on quick estimates, though the stock is currently not cheap (compared to smaller local peers) at 17.2x FY10(E) EPS and 14.4x FY11(E) EPS, the increased spending on agriculture, continued introductions of innovative products by BCS and possibility of land sale at Thane could keep interest alive in the stock. We feel that the stock could be bought at the current levels in a small way and added aggressively on falls in the Rs.449-490 band for a target of Rs.649-688 (17-18x FY11(E) EPS) over 1-2 quarters. We have not assigned any separate value for the land sale at this point.
