The scrip touched an all time high around Rs.940.55 on 22/09/2014 (on my birthday).
Today, while Pipavav Defence Ltd (Rs.39.15) and Resurgere Mines and Minerals Ltd (Rs.1.65) hit the buyer freezes; Gitanjali Gems Ltd (Rs.63.15) also closed above some crucial levels.
Pipavav Defence and Offshore Engineering Company last year announced a new order for offshore vessels from a European client. The order was worth Rs.595 crore with an option to supply two more specialised vessels valued at Rs.1200 crore. The global market for specialised offshore vessels stands at US$10 billion. The company, with its well diversified order book among the defence, commercial and offshore segments, intend to focus on the defence and offshore vessel segment. The defence segment holds around 50% of the order book followed by the commercial segment and offshore segment. New orders in the offshore segment coupled with repairs and maintenance orders augur well for the company as it reduces exposure to the commercial segment. Pipavav Defence and Offshore Engineering Company spanning over 861 acres of land with two dry docking facilities of 662 m x 65 m (Dry Dock-1) and 750 m x 60 m (Dry Dock-2 under construction) is one of the largest “modular” shipbuilding facilities in India. The shipyard is capable of accommodating 400,000 dwt capacity ships along with construction and repair of a wide range of vessels starting from coastal and naval vessels together with repair and fabrication of offshore platforms and rigs. It also has a dedicated offshore yard with 175 m x 16.89 m quay consisting of both launching and loading platform together with installation of bollard and mooring rings.
