VRL’s goods transportation network spans across India through 624 branches and 346 agencies.

As of December 31, 2014, the company’s owned fleet of goods transportation vehicles stood at 3,546. This allows the company gain access even to the remote regions of the country. At the higher price band of Rs205, the stock is valued at 7.6x annualized FY2015E EV/EBITDA and appears attractive as compared to its listed peers such as Transport Corporation of India (TCI) and Gati which trade at 12.2x and 16.6x FY2015E EV/EBITDA, respectively.

With the government’s thrust on infrastructure improving, the logistic sector is set to be on a growth trajectory, we expect VRL to be a beneficiary of the same. Given the company’s good track record coupled with reforms in the transportation industry, healthy financials and comfortable valuations 

Objects of the issue: The IPO consists of 0.57-0.60 crore fresh issue of shares aggregating up to Rs117 crore and the balance an offer for sale of 1.71 crore shares by promoters aggregating up to Rs351 crore.

Potential opportunities seen in the logistic sector: Over 2009-14, the logistics market in India has grown at a 9% CAGR to stand at $120 billion in 2014. With the government’s increasing thrust on the transportation segment and initiatives like ‘Make in India’ along with increasing investments are expected to provide potential opportunities for the logistics sector. Further, the implementation of the Goods and Service Tax (GST) would be an added growth trigger for the sector.

Large fleet of owned vehicles: As of December 31, 2014, VRL’s owned fleet of goods transportation vehicles stood at 3,546.

  1. Increase in fuel costs,
  2. Delay in supply of equipment by third parties and
  3. Change in vehicle emission and age norms;

Valuations: At the higher price band of Rs205, VRL is valued at 7.6x annualized FY2015E EV/EBITDA and appears attractive as compared to its peers TCI and Gati which trade at 12.2x and 16.6x FY2015E EV/EBITDA, respectively.
