Capex continues to be substantial considering that it represents close to 20 per cent of the existing investment in fixed assets by component manufacturers.Strong balance sheets and a recovery in business prospects in fiscal 2020 will help firms absorb the investments without materially affecting their credit risk profiles.

Major capex announcement enhances long term outlook for ACC: Centrum Broking   We maintain BUY on ACC, with the target price (TP) of Rs 1,820. ACC today announced 5.9 million MT cement grinding expansion alongwith 3mn MT clinker expansion – a major chunk of these capex will be greenfield. These projects are expected to be completed by end of CY21, entailing total capex of Rs 30 billion. While these projects will not clear off medium term volume growth concerns, about 20% capacity increase at end of CY21 will certainly boost long term growth visibility for ACC and also portray a positive picture on the promoters’ (LafargeHolcim) intention to grow their India business. We remain positive on the stock owing to its inexpensive valuations and as the industry’s cost pressure has started to ease off from Oct'2018 onwards, and as strong demand should lead to improvement in cement pricing. Further, ACC’s material supply agreement (MSA) with Ambuja will also moderate cost inflation.
