GTFL has a unique business model as it derives ~ 60% of revenues from products developed for food related sectors that are relatively immune to demand fluctuations compared to textile fashion and clothing categories. High share of value-added products (75% of revenues) enhances customer stickiness and enables GTFL to pass on majority of the input cost increase to consumers and maintain its margin profile trajectory.

Expansion of aquaculture cages business by foraying into non-salmon fish farming cages coupled with strong growth in sports and geosynthetics segment would aid in maintaining pace of revenue growth. Increased traction in new high margin innovative products (40% of value-added products) to drive 240 bps margin expansion to 21.1% in FY22-FY24E. We expect revenue, PAT CAGR of 12%, 20%, respectively, in FY22-24E with healthy RoCE in range of 22%-24% (RoIC: 40%+).
