Tata Sons IPO: Tata Chemicals Ltd shares dive 9% after 6-day rally; Market, exit supply, claims Kotak

Tata Chemicals Ltd, whose shares surged 40 percent in the previous six trading sessions, took a beating on Monday early morning, falling concerning 9 percent amidst reports Tata Sons is reviewing options to prevent a first public deal (IPO), which Kotak Institutional Equities said should deflate supposition around value-unlocking at Tata Chemicals.
Kotak stated its fair worth for Tata Chemicals remains at Rs 780, and that it continues to expect incomes per share (EPS) for the Tata team company to fall by concerning two-thirds over FY2023-25E amidst falling margins on soda ash.

“The recent speculative flare-up in the supply must be considered a leave opportunity, in our view,” Kotak said while recommending a ‘Market’ rating on the supply.

On Monday, the supply dropped 8.57 per cent to hit a low of Rs 1,202.10 on BSE. The scrip was up 39.96 percent in the six-day winning touch.

Tata Sons does not seem likely to go public, Kotak claimed. It is thought to have very first approached the RBI for an exemption from the ‘upper-layer NBFC’ rules, and when that appeared not likely, it proceeded to take into consideration various choices to rearrange itself to sidestep the policies.

“Offered this situation, the possibility of an IPO should be taken into consideration reduced. In the lack of an IPO, there is no clear or very easy path for Tata Chemicals to unlock value from its 2.5 percent stake in Tata Sons. Indeed, Tata Chemicals has held the risk for greater than 25 years with no visible attempt by the Tata Group to carry out a buyback. The equity markets, also, assigned little or no worth to the risk all these years, offered the lack of clearness around its money making,” Kotak stated.

For these factors, Kotak assumes a risk sale need to be dealt with just as an optionality as opposed to as part of the core evaluation of Tata Chemicals’ stock.

“The existing market value of all listed financial investments held by Tata Sons is around Rs 16 lakh crore, and designating a 50 percent holding company price cut (could be higher) and an even more 20 per cent hairstyle to consider the influence expense for Tata Chemicals and earnings tax payable suggests that Tata Chemicals’ stake deserves a maximum of Rs 650 per share (thinking a 100 per cent probability of a Tata Sons IPO). At the CMP of Rs 1,315, Tata Chemicals’ share rate appears close to totally valuing in an IPO, and so we would recommend taking earnings,” Kotak said.

“On a different note, the run-up in share rate at Tata Chemicals’ subsidiary Rallis India is much more mystifying: Rallis holds no risk at all in Tata Sons, and if its shares ran up on Thursday in reaction to the appointment of Mr Gyanendra Shukla– the well-regarded former CEO of Monsanto India– as MD, then the reaction appears a week late and, once again, separated from business trends,” it stated.

Shares of Rallis India were down 3.96 percent to Rs 276.55.
