Welspun Corp Hits 52-Week High After Securing Orders Worth Rs 17.3 Bn

Jun 9, 2021

Welspun Corp spurted 6% to Rs 165 per share after the company secured multiple orders of approximately 164 kilo metric tonnes (KMT).

Welspun Corp on Tuesday announced that the company has received multiple orders of approximately 164 KMT valuing close to Rs 17.3 bn.

These orders include, reinstatement of an offshore sour pipes supply contract (270 km / 87 KMT) in Australia for the Barossa Offshore Development project.

Welspun Corp received this order last year, and intimated the bourses on 11 March 2020.

However, the same was subsequently deferred by the customer due to delay in Final Investment Decision (FID) as announced on 27 March 2020.

After the recent FID of the project, Welspun stated that the customer has given a go-ahead to Welspun for the execution of the contract.

The majority of the orders mentioned above will be executed from Welspun's facilities in India.

Equitymaster's view on Welspun Corp

We reached out to Richa Agarwal, Senior Research Analyst at Equitymaster, and Editor of the smallcap service, Hidden Treasure, for her view on the company right now.

Here's what she has to say...

  • While the recent performance has been good, one must note that the order book for the company is susceptible to crude prices, as oil and gas players are its major clients.

    For such businesses, ability to withstand downcycles with strong reserves and liquidity, and low debt balance sheet is critical.
