MaxVIL Business Updates

 

Max Ventures & Industries Limited (MaxVIL), a part of India’s leading multi-business conglomerate, Max Group, announced its financial results today.

 

The company operates two core businesses - Real Estate & Specialty Packaging Films. MaxVIL’s revenue in FY21 grew 14% to Rs 11,723 Mn, while its PAT rose over 6 times to Rs 571 million on adjusted basis.

 

The company continued to witness strong business momentum in the specialty films business recording its highest ever Revenue & EBITDA for the quarter as well as for the year. Leasing revenue in commercial real estate business continued to build up throughout the year, except for March 2021 where new lease transactions were temporarily deferred due to the second covid wave induced lockdown.

 

Max Estates flagship office project, Max Towers has reached more than 90% occupancy levels. The company’s focus now will be on leasing Max House Okhla Phase 1 and smooth and timebound progress of its under construction commercial complex - Max Square and commencement of work on Phase 2 of Max House. Max Estates also continues to actively prospect new commercial land parcels in Delhi NCR, with a positive bias for Gurgaon to achieve its intent of adding nearly 1 Mn Sq. Ft. per annum to the project pipeline in FY22 and onwards.

 

In addition, Max Estates has decided to foray into the residential segment. The company sees a lot of positive developments converging for Delhi NCR Real Estate sector. These include - a cleaner regulatory environment due to RERA and other enabling laws; preference for trusted developer brands; increased affordability of houses due to time-based price corrections and lowest ever home loan rates; and a steady reduction in Delhi-NCR unsold residential inventory. The company would focus on mid-segment housing. It is prospecting well priced and located clear land parcels in Delhi NCR. Future expansion plans in residential sector will be based on the initial experience from its first project launch.

 

MaxVIL’s speciality packaging subsidiary, Max Speciality Films revenue crossed Rs. 3 Bn in Q4 FY21 & Rs. 10 Bn in FY21, both the highest ever in the firm’s history. This was accompanied by a strong improvement in profitability with EBITDA margin expansion of 730 bps in FY21.

 

The sustained momentum in revenue & profitability growth in MSFL is on the back of strong demand, improved realisations, better specialty product mix and stable raw material prices. With consistent efforts by the company, working with leading FMCG companies for their specialized packaging needs, MSFL has increased its volume contribution from specialty films to 45% in FY21, up from 42% in FY20.

 

MSFL recently announced a new CPP (Cast Polypropylene) line which will expand the total capacity by 7.2 KTPA of CPP. The Company has also recently commercialized first of its two new metallizer lines to enhance its speciality product capabilities. With the expansion of the new CPP line, together with the increasing speciality product capabilities through metallizer lines, MSFL is well placed to capture the new growth opportunities, enhancing the scale of the business and sustainably improve its profitability through better product mix.

 

MSFL expects the strong business momentum to continue in FY22 on the back of strong demand, higher realisations, optimum capacity utilization and increased contribution from specialty films. All these factors collectively will lead to significant revenue and EBITDA growth. The strong cash flows will be used to fund CPP & second metallizer lines and reduce MSFL’s debt by Rs. 1-1.25 Bn from Rs. 3.25 Bn.

 

Commenting on the performance, Sahil Vachani, MD & CEO of MaxVIL said, “Despite FY21 being a year chequered by pandemic induced uncertainties, both core businesses of real estate and packaging films coped exceptionally well. The specialty packaging films business has delivered superlative performance throughout FY21.

 

Despite multiple work disruptions and uncertainties in prospective occupier’s mind, our commercial real estate business also fared well during FY21. We successfully managed to almost fully lease out Max Towers, complete construction of Phase 1 of Max House and commence construction on our 3rd project Max Square – all amidst challenging macro conditions.

 

We believe the time is now right for us to foray into the residential real estate to widen our footprint. With trust in brand Max and access to Institutional capital, we believe residential development can be a high return, value accretive complementary line of business for the company.

 

Going into FY22, we believe the packaging films business will continue the robust performance on the back of sustained demand for specialty films while the lease rental income portfolio will continue to build up from improving occupancy levels at our projects in CRE business. Foraying into residential real estate will open up new opportunities and will enable Max Estates to become one of the leading and most admired developers in Delhi NCR.”
