Why Symphony Share Price is Falling

Mar 30, 2023

Why Symphony Share Price is Falling

Many long-term investors are questioning their investment in Symphony, given the 43% fall in the share price over the past five years.

And some recent buyers are probably worried, too, with the stock falling 10% in the last year.

Symphony was once a multibagger stock, growing over 900% between 2011 and 2018, but has been on a downward trajectory ever since.

Shareholders have had an even rougher run lately, too, witnessing a steep decline.

The stock recently hit a nine-month high of Rs 1,188 on 6 March 2023. However, since then the stock has again erased gains of around 14%.

Let's find out why the company's share price is under pressure.

Share buyback impact

Shares of Symphony traded ex-buyback on 29 March 2023 after the company announced a buyback worth Rs 2 billion (bn) in February 2023.

The company had fixed 29 March 2023 as the record date for the same.

The company said it would buyback about 1 million (m) equity shares through the tender offer route at Rs 2,000 per share from all eligible shareholders as on the record date.

The buyback amount excludes expenses to be incurred for various charges, costs, and taxes.

It represents a premium of 109% over the closing share price on 1 February 2023, the day before it announced that it would consider a proposal for a buyback of shares.

The resultant shares to be bought back represent 1.43% of the total number of equity shares in the total paid-up equity capital of the company as of March 2022.

The promoters and members of the promoter group also participated in the proposed buyback.

Following the share buyback, shares of the company fell 7% intraday.

Positive long-term outlook

The Indian market is expected to exhibit strong demand for the company's products, particularly among channel partners, which is projected to remain steady in the near future.

Additionally, the company's presence in Tier 2 cities, where air conditioners are less affordable, presents a promising opportunity for air cooler sales.

As the company recently launched a Hi-Tech BLDC Air Cooler with breakthrough technology that saves up to 50% power, it sets to benefit from it.

It will further help the company to improve its gross margin and EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization).

The company also plans to increase product pricing in the future, in conjunction with declining input costs, to achieve EBITDA margins equivalent to its historical peak of 0.3%.

The company will also benefit from the sector tailwind.

Despite existing weak consumer sentiment, air cooler demand is expected to be robust in the upcoming summer.

The air conditioning industry, which sold a record 8.25 m units in 2022, is projected to maintain its double-digit growth trajectory.

Low white goods penetration, including air coolers and air conditioners in India, could represent another long-term catalyst for Symphony.

How Symphony shares have performed recently

Symphony shares have declined by more than 12% in a month. Over the past week, the company's shares are trading lower by 8%.

Symphony touched its 52-week high of Rs 1,219 on 3 January 2023 while it touched a 52-week low of Rs 820.6 on 11 March 2022.
