On January 4, 2023, ICRA assigned ICRA BBB ratings to Rama Steel Tubes’ instruments with stable outlook.

“ICRA’s ratings action favourably factors in Rama Steel Tubes’ experienced management and its long track record of operations in the steel pipes industry. The ratings also consider its diversified and strategically located manufacturing facilities, resulting in savings of logistics costs and healthy relationships with key customers, marked by diversified distribution channels,” rating agency said in rationale.

While assigning the ratings, ICRA also takes cognisance of the ongoing capacity expansion plans at an estimated outlay of around Rs. 130-150 crore over the next three years, which will increase the company’s total capacity by ~1,50,000 mtpa. The ratings also factor in the adequate capital structure supported by healthy equity infusion, which is expected to support the company’s capex plans, though project execution risks remain in terms of any time and cost over-run. Post the expansion, the company will benefit from increased scale and other operational synergies, which are expected to strengthen its overall operating profile, ICRA said.
