Mesut Ellialtioglu of Talas Turkey Value Fund presented his investment thesis on Turkiye Sise ve Cam Fabrikalari A.S. (Sisecam) (Turkey: SISE) at Best Ideas 2021.
Sisecam is a leading integrated glass manufacturer in Turkey and the EMEA region. It is also one of the top ten global glass conglomerates, with a market capitalization of $3 billion.
The company completed a merger with its listed subsidiaries in the second half of 2020 following a delisting of the subsidiaries, including SODA Sanayii, Trakya Cam, and Anadolu Cam. Sisecam operating as a single entity should result in cost savings, leading to improvement in operating margins in 2021 and beyond.
Mesut expects Sisecam to deliver revenue growth of 35% in 2021, helped by a cyclical recovery in flat glass and glassware volumes, pricing increases across its markets, and a favorable translation effect of a higher EUR/TRY exchange rate.
The company is valued at an EV/EBITDA multiple of 6.5x, based on average estimated EBITDA in 2021-22. Mesut sees 65% share price upside potential over the next twelve months.
