For FY23, Mazagaon Dock Shipbuilders had posted 83 per cent year-on-year (YoY) jump in its consolidated profit after tax (PAT) at Rs 1,119 crore on healthy operational performance. Revenue from operations grew 36.5 per cent YoY at Rs 7,827 crore.

As on March 31, 2023, total order book position of the company stood at Rs 38,755 crore, which provides execution stability and consistent cash availability.

Mazagaon Dock Shipbuilders is principally engaged in building and repairing of ships, submarines, various types of vessels and related engineering products for its customers.

The current orderbook is likely to get exhausted by FY27 with peak revenue generation in FY25. In FY24, the company is expecting an order worth Rs 3,200 crore for patrol vessels for Indian Coast Guard and an export order worth Rs 1,000 crore.

Going ahead, analysts at ICICI Securities perceive peak execution through to FY25E based on the current orderbook visibility. However, long gestation period implies free cashflow is likely to decline FY25E onwards with the unwinding of contract liability, resulting in cash depletion.

“Mazagaon Dock Shipbuilders’ lack of order visibility offsets its near-term robust revenue estimate. As a result, we perceive unfavourable risk-reward at current market price,” the brokerage firm said.
