It believes that the company is a key player in the transformer manufacturing space with a domestic market share of 15% (as per management), catering to diversified sectors (85% of revenue comes from private customers). Over the years, Voltamp has developed strong relationships with clients, which has helped it have a large installed base of more than 60,000 transformers (as of Mar 22) across sectors in India and overseas markets, it added.
The brokerage also believes that the company stands to be a key beneficiary of the energy transition, private capex revival and PLI initiatives of the government in the manufacturing space. It highlighted that the company’s current order book at Rs 9 billion and strong balance sheet and improved outlook on profitability would likely keep earnings growth strong in the next three years.
Further, a pick-up in power distribution capex and investments in the manufacturing sector could lead to growth in Voltamp’s order book.
