In July this year, PI Industries Limited (PI) had executed a business transfer agreement (BTA) with Ind-Swift Laboratories Limited (ISLL) for acquisition of their API and Intermediates business undertaking on a slump sale going concern basis.

PI Industries in a November 1 statement said that the consummation of the transaction was subject to fulfilment of pre-defined conditions precedents before the Long Stop Date of October 31, 2021. “Since Ind-Swift Laboratories has not been able to complete several of these pre-agreed conditions precedents, the BTA stands terminated," PI Industries said in a statement today. “In view of non-fulfillment and also disagreement on some of the pre-agreed conditions, the Company has decided not to further pursue the aforesaid transaction."

The strong support stands at 2500 levels and due to the impact of this news, we expect PI Industries to test it's support in next trading sessions."

“The market was expecting a 6-7% addition to profit via this agreement therefore we are seeing a sharp cut after the termination of the agreement. We are seeing a negative reaction in stock due to this news. However overall fundamentals are still strong for this company and it is one of the quality companies in the agrochemical space," said Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart.

Technically, it is sitting at its 200-DMA of 2750 and “if it manages to hold that level then we can expect a bounce back. Otherwise it may see more correction towards the 2,500 level and that would be a great buying opportunity," Meena added. 

In a statement, Ind Swift Laboratories said its board of ISLL in its board meeting held on 1st November discussed the matter and has decided not to extend the Long Stop Date.

“As far News is concerned for investors, it’s a great time to accumulate stocks as bad news makes good profits if long term business economics of business doesn’t impact. PI industries in last 10 year provides 30% CAGR to its investor. Business is almost debt free & recently its cash flow is grown at rapid pace," said Ankit Yadav, Wealth Manager (USA) and Director of Market Maestroo.

As per Yadav, the dip is a good opportunity for investors to accumulate the business for long term.
