Increasing share of made up division in total sales will boost the margins.

Differentiable Products:
We particularly liked company’s products that are more focused to emotional touch points like festival sales, female fashion apparel and bridal wear where fabric design is of prime importance. The strength of the company lies in designing these fabrics and delivering them timely. To give a perspective, the company never produces the same design again and maximum shelf life for a design is less than 6 months. Usually Orbit makes design samples based on which client places orders. In this case clients are more focused on quality and design of the product and therefore are not too sensitive to the milder price fluctuation. This helps the company to maintain reasonable pricing power. It is important to note that Orbit with its design team and increasing share of in-house manufacturing capacity is able to tailor make designs and maintain the quality & production timeliness.

Targeting Festivals:
The strategy is to do festival selling – like Christmas, East, Halloween, Valentine's and Carnivals. These sales points and seasons help a lot in boosting the sales, and making products very popular abroad. For eg company’s participation in international trade events like Texworld at Paris and Christmas world in Frankfurt has resulted in the opening up of new business markets and a wider global presence. Hence company has strong marketing strategy for its products to boost export sales on regular basis. Company’s state-of-the-art weaving plant in Surat and the jacquard/dobby designs are created digitally and directly transferred to the memory of the machines, thereby eliminating even a minor margin of error. Hence these products have very good demand in Export Market.

Greater in-house manufacturing capacity to further improve business:
The total sales for Orbit in FY14 were 1.04 crore meter. However, the in-house production capacity was much lower serving to only 30% of total requirement. Nearing end of FY14, the company more than doubled its capacity by spending Rs 30 crores at Surat plant and will now be able to cater nearly 50% of FY15 estimated requirement. This according to us will help the company grow its volume as well as margins. Orbit has also benefited due to the government schemes of interest subsidy, capital subsidy and power cost subsidy provided to the fabric manufacturers.

Strong Financials:
Over the last decade, the company has undergone major restructuring in its business model, launched new products, reorganized its finances and entered new markets. As a result, it has attained a major financial turnaround, from a loss making venture into a profit making one. The company’s customer base, which reflects marquee high-end designer wear companies from across the globe, has now also included the rapidly growing Indian fashion apparel sector. Company has strong ROCE of 32%, fixed asset turnover ratio of 2.02x, EBIDTA margins above 25% and PAT margins above 14% indicates how well company has turnaround in last few years.

Strong Labour policy:
Company’s labour policy is down-to-earth. They keep their staff and workers very satisfied so that they can continue working without break in production schedule. For instance, they provide in Surat highly subsidized food three times a day, and workers in any shift are eligible to take all the three meals in any day they are working. Since this is labour intensive industry company makes sure that there is smooth working from labour side for uninterrupted production.

Strong Capex:
Company is in process of expansion of Kosamba plant by importing new machineries and also they have purchased a new textile park in Kalyan – Asmeeta Textile Park. These expansions will help company to increase their production on substantial basis.. With fashion changing as often as possible and buyers showing enhanced interest in novelties, the market for the Orbit Exports products is on the uptrend. They have a diversified product portfolio and will keep on expanding it to meet the growing needs of the customers. Hence company is continuous process to expand to meet increasing demand of customers.
