What to expect?
MOIL has maintained the prices in 2QFY14 after increasing prices by 9% in 1QFY14.It expects demand to remain stable and will benefit from the Rupee depreciation. MOIL currently has inventory of 66,000 tonnes of Manganese ore. MOIL expects to incur a capex of Rs 2 bn and Rs 4 bn in FY14 and FY15 respectively which we believe is too optimistic given MOIL track record of under achieving the capex targets. MOIL has spent Rs 330 m in Apr-Jul 2013 on increasing the Manganese ore output. It has only incurred Rs 450 m capex in FY12 and FY13 respectively. MOIL expects Manganese ore volumes of 1.15 m tones and 1.2 m tones in FY14 and FY15 respectively.

At the current price of Rs 202, the stock is trading at a multiple of 7.9 times its trailing twelve month earnings. We maintain our Buy view on the stock.
