Rajeev Agrawal presented his in-depth investment thesis on Chaman Lal Setia Exports (BOM: 530307) at Asian Investing Summit 2017.
Chaman Lal Setia Exports provides basmati rice, a niche segment in the large rice market. A particular variety of rice grown in limited area of India and Pakistan can be classified as basmati rice. This geographical protection, coupled with increasing affluence, newer markets, and product moving from commodity to brands give this segment a strong tailwind. Management has been in the business for forty years and owns ~75% of the company (the maximum permissible by law for a listed company). The company has continually improved operational performance, translating into high returns on capital and attractive growth rates. The equity trades at ~14x earnings — attractive for a company that has grown earnings and EPS at a CAGR of ~35% over the last decade and could have similar growth rates in the foreseeable future.
