Kemrock Industries: Shares plummet on poor results and pledging of shares

Kemrock Industries & Exports tumbled to nearly half its price in 10 days. Poor results, increasing finance costs and additional pledging of shares has resulted in investors dumping the stock

Kemrock Industries & Exports, which was trading at around Rs500 per share sometime back, has fallen more than half to Rs205.15 on the BSE. The company which manufactures fibre reinforced composite materials has been on a decline in the last six days, hitting its lowest in the last three years. The promoters of the company have pledged nearly 70% of their stake and the recent quarter results have seen a huge drop in sales. The poor results which were declared a couple of days back resulted in the stock hitting its lower circuit of 10% today and closed at Rs 205.15 a piece. 
The promoter of the company Kalpesh M Patel who holds 51.38 lakh shares (25% of total share capital), pledged an additional 6.97 lakh shares this month. This takes the total number of pledged shares to 36.87  to 36.22, which works out to 71% of his stake and 17.82% of the total share capital. The promoters hold a stake of 27.07% in the company as on 30 June 2012. Institutional investors hold a stake of 3.35% and retail investors hold a stake of 6.80%.

Out of this two lakh shares were pledged to Karvy Financial Services, 1.2 lakh shares were pledged to Ess Dee Aluminium and 60,000 shares each to Bright Brothers and Sicom.
If this was not enough, the financial results for the quarter ended June 2012 sent investors over the edge. Sales declined by nearly 40% over the pervious quarter and by 45% year-on-year to Rs161.65 crore. Net profit came down by a whopping 93% y-o-y from Rs26.05 crore to Rs1.86 crore as finance costs also increased by 33% to Rs51.38 crore over the previous corresponding quarter. The operating profit margin for the earlier few quarters which was around 27%, which came down to 12%.

Incredible that FRP Holdings, which as per Kemrock's announcement today is going to invest 260 Million USD in the company to enable Kemrock to reach an OTS with banks, has practically NO web presence. So also it's president Mr. Earvin Richard who again has NO web presence. Surely a company that can invest 260 million USD in a single investment, should have a web presence ?
Wonder if Kemrock's bankers are so desperate to recover an NPA that they have not bothered to investigate the colour of the money they are getting ? Looking for answers if anyone has them .....

Nifty, Sensex may rise further: Tuesday Closing Report

The Nifty may see a staggered upmove 

The market closed marginally off the day’s high supported by a fall in headline inflation and support from global markets. Yesterday we had mentioned that the Nifty has to break out of the range of 5,300 and 5,377 for further direction. Today in the second half of trade, the index broke the upper range and settled above it. We may now see the benchmark making a staggered upmove in the range of 5,445 and 5,345. The National Stock Exchange (NSE) saw a volume of 54.42 crore shares. The Indian market will remain closed on Wednesday on account of the Independence Day holiday.
The domestic market opened almost unchanged from its previous close as investors were focussed on the headline inflation numbers, due to be announced later in the day. Markets in Asia were higher in morning trade on hopes that, after a spate of dismal economic indicators, policymakers across the world will gear up to spruce growth.
Back home, the Nifty opened five points down at 5,343 and the Sensex started off at 17,632, down one point from its previous close. The market was volatile in early trade on selling pressure from realty, capital goods and healthcare stocks.
Meanwhile, the rupee depreciated by 29 paise to 55.63 against the dollar in early trade on increased dollar demand from importers and a lower opening of the equity market. The rupee had lost 6 paise to end at 55.34 against the dollar yesterday.
India’s exports declined by 14.8% year-on-year to $22.4 billion in July this year due to the global demand slowdown. Imports too contracted during the month by 7.61% to $37.9 billion, leaving a trade deficit of $15.5 billion, government data revealed.
During the April-July period of 2012-13, exports have shrunk by 5.06% cent to $80.4 billion. Imports during the period dipped by 6.47% to $153.2 billion.
The dismal trade figures for July resulted in the indices touching their intraday lows in late morning trade. At this point, the Nifty fell to 5,329 and the Sensex dipped to 17,572.
However, a drop in inflation numbers for July brought a cheer to the market, lifting it from the lows and into positive terrain in noon trade.
Headline inflation declined to 6.87% in July as the rate of price rise of the food articles category eased a little, although pressure remained on potato, pulses and rice as well as manufactured items. 
Inflation, as measured by the Wholesale Price Index (WPI), was 7.25% in June and stood at 9.36% in July 2011. Overall, food inflation declined to 10.06% in July, from 10.81% in June.
The benchmarks witnessed a further upmove on positivism in the global markets as the key European indices opened in the green and those in Asia extended their gains towards the end of the day’s trade.
The gains enabled the market hit its intraday high in the post-noon session with the Nifty touching 5,387 and the Sensex going up to 17,753. The indices held on to their gains in the late session on support from oil & gas and banking stocks.
The market closed marginally off the highs on a decline in headline inflation for July and supportive global cues. The Nifty settled 32 points (0.61%) higher at 5,380 and the Sensex finished trade at 17,728, a rise of 95 points (0.54%) over its previous close.
