This is one co which I have recomended at 115 ,2-3 months back.It is a United Phosphorus gr co.
Excel Crop has a Mcap of 145 cr and sales turnover is 713 cr.The eps of last year was 25 and the Forex loss was at the tune of 18 cr.So if we add that amt the eps was as good as almost 40.
According to me this is a steal at this price where one gets into a very well managed gr co and also a very ambitious and responsible gr.
To my view ExcelCorp can give multiple returns from hereon.Even if we go by eps and p/e then it should easily touch 400 and on Mcap it can be 5-6 times from here...These are all forward looking statement and I reserve my right to be wrong.

Excel Crop Care adopts an integrated approach to manufacturing and has built world-scale capacities to make Technical Actives and Formulations. To ensure quality and continuity of supply, we produce key raw material ourselves or source them from our associate companies. Leveraging our capabilities in basic chemistry, we have developed and built-up a range of formulations to cater to special needs arising from peculiar climatic and pest conditions. Excel Crop Care is known for mastering hazardous technologies and manufacturing corrosive compounds that others consider "difficult to make". We are among the world's leading manufacturers of Endosulfan, Glyphosate, Chlorpyriphos, Aluminium Phosphide and Zinc Phosphide, which are made to the highest purity. All our manufacturing plants are the result of in-house research and engineering and have been installed by our own project team. Our main manufacturing plant at Bhavnagar is ISO 9002, ISO 14000 and OSHAS 18000 certified and meets statutory requirements on quality and safety. The more recent plants at Gajod and Silvassa are equipped with state-of-art machinery and are in the process of obtaining the ISO certification. Our quality consciousness is not limited to manufacturing. Each of our manufacturing locations has a well-equipped R&D facility - which is Government of India approved - that's busy exploring newer eco-friendly chemistries for crop care and effective formulations technologies and recipes. This helps us to serve the changing needs of our demanding customers in cost-effective ways.

Besides the necessary infrastructure at the plants, we have a subsidiary in Antwerp, Belgium manned by professionals who perfectly understand the requirements and specialties of customers in that part of the world. Herewe also stock key products to reduce transit time and meet urgent customer needs.To become a truly global company, we plan to strengthen our stewardship role in promoting molecules where we have core competencies.Initially, we intend gaining market access in countries that have crops, climatic conditions and size of land holdings similar to India. For this, we are joining hands with companies across the world that offer complementary skills, products and services. Pooling resources and knowledge base will speed up market access and build a firm stronghold in these countries. In return we will offer our marketing and distribution strengths and our knowledge base in India.
