CIPLA - Growth to Slow Down, Tough Time Ahead - a new market research report on 2014-03-14 09:05:02
We view Cipla´s bid for 51% stake in Cipla Medpro (CM) at $220m more as a step to salvage its South African business, than as a growth driver. We do not disagree that this deal, valued at 9.4x EV/EBITDA, is EPS accretive and comes at a reasonable valuation.
However, given that CM was left in lurch post the controversial exit of its CEO (Jerome Smith), Cipla is almost compelled to buy a controlling stake. In such a situation, a demand for higher price from Cipla Medpro´s current share holders may not be ruled out as the bid is being reviewed. CM trading at a discount to peers like Aspen and Adcock (largely due to concerns of supply agreement with Cipla post Jerome´s exit), is a boon for Cipla.
With Cipla generating 9% of sales from supply to CM and CM owing all the brands in South Africa, this acquisition also highlights Cipla´s weak business model with little focus on front end. Jerome´s re-instatement as CEO post Cipla´s acquisition cannot be ruled out given his strong relationship with Cipla management.
We reiterate our Market Perform on Cipla with a target price of Rs.360
