Texmaco Rail operational turn-around? 

From FY 18 there will be no separate rail budget and it will be the part of the general budget only. This will not have much bearing on railway-related stocks including Texmaco Rail & Engineering Ltd. This is so mainly because of the infrastructure spending push by the government. Meanwhile, this year, railway stocks are also performing well due to optimism that government will further push infrastructure development in this sector.

Besides GOI commitment of infrastructure spending, some of the developments like MoU with Russia’s Rosoboronexport and Israel’s Lesico group, an amalgamation of Bright power and TexHi-tech into and with Texmaco and strong holding of strategic investors are indicating for strong revenue flow in near future.

All the events and happenings are of long-term nature and hence a long-term view is favoring for positivity in its share price as well. Let’s discuss briefly the happenings.

The railway ministry is planning to undertake investment of $140 million over next five years for the purpose of improving infrastructure and mobility of railway. Also, the ministry may soon approve $5 billion funds to finance various infrastructure projects.

All this push by the government will show the positive effect on the earnings of the listed railway vending company in coming years including that of Texmaco Rail. Texmaco sales nearly doubled in the June quarter of FY 17. Texmaco results in hints for the operational turnaround.

In coming quarters, the results reporting will give further rise in earnings due to all these ongoing projects and approvals. This may enhance share price above 130 levels in next quarter or two as explained in below paragraph.

4. Amalgamation of Bright power and TexHi-tech into and with Texmaco Rail

Texmaco will merge two of its subsidiary, Bright power, and TexHi-tech with itself. The board has approved this amalgamation in September 2017. This amalgamation is expected to strengthen its position as a total rail solution provider.

Also, the merger will help the company utilize its resources optimally and reduce cost. The creation of the large asset base may result in facilitating access to better financial resources, in future.

There will be no change in promoters holding post-merger. However, the public holding in Taxmaco will increase by 4.58% and total holding by 2.18% from that of the pre-merger holdings company.
