BERGER BANGLADESH – Long term investment

with 11 comments

Not going to waste much space or time. Company does not require much research.

Banks want to lend funds to people who are money-wise do not really need cash but just happen to, for an urgent requirement. Likewise, we need to buy companies that do not need to be listed on stock market, have adequate cash flow, but are because of a freak accident or first generation entrepreneur.

Berger Bangladesh was listed because of similar freak incident. 5% shares are listed on Dhaka Stock Exchange. Market cap 2300 Crores, PE 20, Growth 20-25%. 
CMP – 1000 BDT
Dividend – 22 BDT
Debt – 0
EPS for H1 = 27  BDT

Cash Flows – 180 Crores per annum, growing at 25% per annum

Competitive position is twice as strong as Asian Paints (35% market share in India ) in terms of market share – 60% market share in Bangladesh. Asian Paints sells at 52 PE, 6 times sales (no idea why? with 12-15% growth). Berger Bangladesh with better future and better past, current  and expected future growth rates sells at 20 PE and 2 times sales.

Tie up with 2nd biggest paint company in the world,  PPG

Also, another JV with Becker–media/News/2011/Joint-Venture-in-Bangladesh/

The only end result of holding this stock for long term can be phenomenal compounding, wealth creation and financial riches. Can be a 10-15 bagger+ in a decade with very high stability in all 
economic cycles, extremely attractive dividend payouts, will likely re-rate to 40+ PE eventually.

Don’t be fooled by the name Berger, in India it may have 17% market share but it is a monster, a 927 pound gorilla without any equal in Bangladesh.

Feel free to go crazy with your research.

  3. I get emails from people asking me for list of stocks. My answer after 5 years is same. Forget lists, find 1 good company to invest per annum to be supremely materially rich.

    I actually do not invest in more than 10-12 stocks that is why I had to pass Roto pumps.
    My exposure in Acrysil, Brescon, Cera Sanitary, Industrial and Prudential, Ador Fontech, Patels Airtemp is more than 5 -10% each.

    I believe that 1 good investment per year is enough to make you billionaire.

  7. Hi amit,as I stay in India and I am an Indian resident, I visited Bangladesh stock exchange for more details I came across details regarding taxes, where it was given they charge 25 percent taxes for individuals, is that correct, so if I make a profit of 100 rupees I have to pay tax of rupees 25, am I correct, please clarify my doubts, shailesh

  8. 0% short term capital gains tax
    0% long term capital gains tax
    25% TDS on dividend

    If your share goes from 1 lac to 10 crores, no tax. Tax is only on
    Dividends received each year.

  10. I stand corrected, TAX on dividends in Bangladesh is only 10% and not 25%

    0% short term capital gains tax
    0% long term capital gains tax
    10% TDS on dividend
