July 16, 2007

SBICAP Securities just a while ago have released a research report on the Ship Building industry in India. SBICAPs is bullish on the prospects of the same. You might recall that Citi had upgraded Bharti Shipyard and ABG Shipyard just last month.

SBICAPS research on these two companies is no different from Citigroups. SBI recommends a BUY on Bharti Shipyard and ABG Shipyard with target price of Rs 660 and Rs 570 respectively.

The government has initiated an array of measures to promote the shipyard industry and make it internationally competitive. Bharati had a healthy order book of 38,500 mn as on July 8, 2007 which is one the highest amongst the private sector shipyards in India. The Company has undertaken a new Greenfield shipbuilding facility at Mangalore. The new yard will have a capacity to build ships with capacity of 60,000 DWT and facility to manufacture jack-up rigs. Offshore vessels (AHTS, PSVs and rigs) remain the mainstay of Bharati Shipyard limited – comprising about 70 % of the order book.
