CIL is a quality public sector unit that is well positioned to exploit the growing demand-supply gap for coal in India due to its huge reserves, strong balance sheet and initiatives taken to improve the consistency of output (through investment in coal washeries). On a rough-cut basis, we expect the company to show an earnings growth of over 20% in the next three years. At the offer price band of Rs225-245 the stock is offered at 14.5-16x FY2010 earnings which appears attractive for a company that has strong earnings growth outlook, high return ratios (return on equity [RoE] and return on capital
employed [RoCE] in excess of 30%) and a high level of cash on the books.
Invest with a view to hold 3 years. No significant listing gains expected.
