Alumex PLC, a subsidiary of Hayleys PLC, is expected to grow its earnings potential to achieve a CAGR of 24% FY16-FY19E. ALUM is expected to grow its earnings mainly through its revenue increase and exploiting the static growth in global prices of its key raw material, aluminium. Expected revenue generation is attributing to construction boom in the country and increase in capacity leading to growth in volumes in its main product as well as new products. Net profit margins for FY16-FY18E are expected to rise on the back of improved operating profits with increasing revenues and cost efficiencies. FC Research expect ALUM to provide a return of 25.8% at LKR 20.0. STRONG BUY
