Coastal Corporation Ltd. (CCL) is engaged in the processing of a variety of shrimp & Shrimp products. It offers shrimps in different forms such as raw in frozen blocks and cooked in IQF form as per the Customer's specifications. CCL's variety of Shrimps includes (i) sea caught shrimps i.e., Sea White (Penaeus Indicus), Sea Tiger (Penaeus Monodon), Pink Brown Shrimp (Metapenaeus Monoceros), (ii) aquaculture shrimps i.e., Black Tiger (Penaeus Monodon) and Vannamei (Litopenaeus vannamei).

The company sells its products under the brand name "Coastal", "Coastal Premium", "Coastal Gold", "Jewel" and "President". It has launched these brands as part of its marketing strategy to target different segments in different regions. Also, the company is engaged in customized packaging of Shrimps as per the requirement of customers. CCL's products are exported to foreign markets which mainly include the U.S.A., and also to other countries like Europe, Canada, U.A.E., Saudi Arabia, Australia, Hong Kong, Korea, and China.

CCL currently has two processing units in Vishakhapatnam and the third one is coming up at Kakinada. 

To part finance its needs for investment in its wholly owned subsidiaries (CBPL Rs. 16.00 cr. and CFIL Rs. 18.00 cr.) and general corporate purposes (Rs. 8.92 cr.), CCL is offering a rights issue (RI) of 1929800 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 225 per share to mobilize Rs. 43.42 cr. The company is offering the right shares in the ratio of 1 share for every 6 shares held as of the record date of August 26, 2022. The issue opens for subscription on September 12, 2022, and will close on September 27, 2022. Only 25% i.e. Rs. 56.25 per share is to be paid along with the application and the rest on one or subsequent calls by the company from time to time. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE and NSE. CCL is spending Rs. 0.50 cr. for this RI process. 

The issue is solely lead managed by Finshore Management Services Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue.

Post RI, CCL's current paid-up equity capital of Rs. 11.58 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 13.51 cr. Based on the RI pricing, the company is looking for a market cap of Rs. 303.94 cr.  

On the financial performance front, for the last two fiscals, CCL has (on a consolidated basis) posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 481.94 cr. / Rs. 18.41 cr. (FY21) and Rs. 504.38 cr. / Rs. 13.55 cr. (FY22). Thus even though its top line marked a significant rise, its bottom line marked a decline.

As per the unaudited results filed with the exchanges, for Q1 of FY23, it has earned a net profit of Rs. 8.79 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 122 cr. 

The company is a dividend-paying company. It paid a dividend of Rs.1.50 per share in March 2020, Rs. 3.0 per share in September 21 and Rs. 2.00 per share in May 2022. It will adopt a prudent dividend policy post listing of RI, based on its financial performance and future prospects. 

The scrip last closed on cum-right basis at Rs. 352.75 on August 24, 2022, and opened on an ex-right basis at Rs. 354.75 on August 25, 2022. Since then it has marked a high/low of Rs. 374.80 / Rs. 335. The scrip last closed at Rs. 350.40 as of September 09, 2022. Based on this quote, its post-RI market cap stands at Rs. 473.34 cr. 

The scrip has posted the last 52 weeks high/low of Rs. 526.76 / Rs. 226.05. Promoter holding has remained static at 41.09% for the last three quarters ended on 30.06.2022.

The counter is well managed above the RI price to lure investors.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

The company is witnessing pressure on margins as indicated by its last two years’ financial data. It appears that the counter is well managed above RI price to lure investors. Cash surplus/risk seeker may consider parking of funds.
