During 1QCY19, net sales witnessed an increase of 30% YoY to PKR 16,123mn, which is majorly owing to a 9% YoY rise in PTA prices and 20% PKR depreciation.

Gross margins of the company are up by 260bps YoY to 11.7% (4QCY18: 10.6% up by 110bps QoQ). The improvement is led by a 20% YoY PKR depreciation, however international PTA margins are down by 8% YoY.

Outlook

Currently the international PTA margins are hovering around USD 160 per ton, which is higher than our long-term assumption of USD 140/ton. Our Dec-19 TP for the stock is 25.3 per share.
