Rahul Saraogi of Atyant Capital Advisors discussed investing in India and presented his investment thesis on Praj Industries (India: PRJ) at Asian Investing Summit 2021.

Thesis summary:

Praj Industries is a technology and capital equipment company and a world leader in the ethanol, brewery, biogas, and hipurity segments. It has 70% market share in India, a country with an ethanol blending target of 20% (up from 8%). Rahul sees strong growth ahead for the company and its end markets.

Praj has conservative and healthy financials, with $47 million in cash and no debt. Corporate governance is exemplary, with an ethical promoter and efficient capital allocator at the helm.

Ultimately, Rahul sees Praj as more of a technology business than a capital equipment business. He anticipates both earnings expansion and multiple expansion in the coming years.
