Weaving business did not improve in the third quarter, as projected, due to the onset of Europe's third coronavirus outbreak. Due to the storm, the fashion industry, in particular, remained sluggish. Due to the ongoing uncertainty, customers are still hesitant to place orders. On the other hand, due to a shortage of fabric in the supply chain and rising demand, the technical fabric business, notable abrasives, is displaying a positive trend.

Processed Cloth Nine months ended 31 March Increase/(Decrease)

Sales-(meters '000') 23,913 33,956 (10,043) (29.58)

Sale-(Rs. '000') 8,616,344 12,397,587 (3,781,243) (30.50)

Despite the difficulties, the Dyeing Division has succeeded admirably. The Division's sales declined by 30.50 percent in the nine months compared to the previous nine months, and we expect this trend to continue in the current fiscal year's final quarter.

Home Textile:

Nishat Mills aims to provide quality products to customers and explore new markets to encourage profit of the business through good governance and the development of a strong and dynamic team, to achieve optimum prices for the company's products for long-term and equitable growth and prosperity.

The textile industry had a difficult first nine months of the current fiscal year due to the global economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic. During this time, the world was hit by the second and third waves of the pandemic, resulting in lockdowns and restrictions all over the planet. Now that the vaccine procedure has begun, Nishat mills assume that all persons in the United States and Europe vaccinated by the end of this fiscal year, allowing millions of Americans and Europeans to move freely and work from offices. Demand is projected to increase as a result of this. Despite its promise and bright prospects, the textile market is particularly under severe strain due to rising raw material costs. Since the start of the present financial year's second quarter, we've seen an enormous surge in the price of cotton and synthetic fiber.

Financial Health: -

Company has strong financial health:

  2020 2019 2018 2018 2017
Assets 110,660,914 100,545,392 102,736,033 117,530,275 106,599,219
Liabilities 39,233,054 33,930,122 27,022,888 28,767,479 24,444,064
Equity 71,427,860 66,615,270 75,713,145 88,762,796 82,155,155

The fair value of stock calculated is 216.93 Rs. and it is trading at 96.50. According to our estimates, the stock is trading under its par value and is an undervalued stock. This means that it is a very good investment for people and can generate a large number of profits. Financial stability can also be seen from an increase in earnings and assets from the previous year. The company stock also pays a dividend of 4.32 Rs. meaning that it is a good stock to invest in. Compared to the Luxury industry NML has a pretty good P/E ratio. It has a good amount of short-term assets which exceed both its short-term and long-term liabilities.

From Financial health, we can conclude that NML is a value stock and will act as a good investment for investors in the future until it reaches fair or book value. Plus a dividend is very attractive for investors.
