Should you buy the shares of Aegis Logistics?

The research analyst of the broking firm Edelweiss, said “At CMP, AGIS is trading at an attractive valuation of 10.5x FY24E EV/EBITDA. We trim our FY23/24E EBITDA estimates by 9%/4% to account for the reported numbers and incorporate ramp-up of the Kandla terminal. AGIS stock price has run-up substantially (up 28% in a month) since our last report; the next catalyst for the stock would be Kandla volume scale-up while strong distribution volumes shall provide cushion in the interim. We reiterate ‘BUY’ with TP of INR315/share (broadly unchanged), valuing the stock at 15x Dec’23E EV/EBITDA."

“Aegis will report balance sheet under the new structure (consolidated from 25 May 2022) in the next quarter. As of June, consolidated gross debt stands at INR900cr while cash is at INR1,500cr. Work has started on the INR1,250cr new capex plan, but the management will share further details as work progresses and nears commissioning," they further added.
