Shree Cement share price under pressure

Shree Cement's share price fell over 2% on 21 June after various media houses reported that Income Tax Department was conducting surveys at five company locations.

The surveys were being carried out under Section 80IA of the Income Tax Act, which provides for tax deduction for certain industrial undertakings involved in infrastructure development.

After falling 2% intraday, the stock managed to recoup some losses in late trade to close at Rs 25,780, down 0.6% from the previous close.

In the March quarter of the financial year 2022-23, Shree Cements reported a 15.3% year-on-year decline in standalone profit at Rs 5,462 m on back of higher power and fuel costs. The company's standalone revenue, however, grew 16.7% from the year-ago period to Rs 47.9 billion (bn).

The cement company's premium multiples currently reflect most of its capital expenditure intensity and cost curve positioning, Investec. However, the firm sees both capex intensity and cost-curve positioning eroding with time, resulting in such a low target price.
