Valuation : This 45 year old company with 54% Promoter holding, having strong brand value among household and retail segment, which also happen to be the pioneer into bringing safe to use plastic products in Indian kitchen and having production facility at 4 different locations and production line of over 100 machines, is available at a market cap of only 40 Crore (Brand valuation alone should command more than 75 Cr) and 30% discount to Book Value of Rs 31.5 per Share, and having FY 16 Sale of Rs 176 Cr thus giving Mcap to Sales of less than 0.25 times. The promoters are working on to turn the company around in few quarters, which can be seen in their efforts of cost cutting, reducing debts and selling online through e-commerce. With the price of crude stabilizing near 50$ the company will have a stable pricing for raw material.

The company should begin to report good numbers going forward and command good PE ratio. Investors should study this HIDDEN GEM for long term growth. (The company is also listed in NSE so the quarterly and yearly price band does not apply.)
