SEBI s intervention and investigation apart, the stock does have a appeal for larger banks. The banking amendment act have sparked a potential thought process that the smaller, well performing banks can become targets for merger/acquisition by larger private sector banks. ICICI bank has been known to aggressively take over smaller banks in the past. This activity has infact helped ICICI bank become the largest private bank in the country in terms of branch network. The company pays premium over the targets current market price. This will continue to be the trend as the cost per branch would still be lesser than the market cap per branch of ICICI. This stems from the fact that ICICI has impressive revenue per branch and revenue per employee figures.
A good tactic here would be to buy both ICICI bank and Karnataka bank. If the merger does happen, the holders will receive some shares of ICICI for the holding in KTK Bank as per the calculated exchange ratio. The rates are likely to be cut in January 2013, which is likely to push up the banking index higher. Especially ICICI bank and KTK bank are likely to gain significantly.
Financial highlights: Karnataka Bank
Sales growth 5 year CAGR: 19.32%
Return on Equity 5 year average: 13.59%
ICICI s per branch market cap is around Rs.45 crore whereas at current market price, KTK Bank per branch market cap is around 6 crore. ICICI s last target Bank of Rajasthan was acquired by paying Rs.6.5 crore per branch. Karnataka bank is a better performer than BoR was when it was acquired so ICICI will likely offer a higher rate for it. Assuming it will offer Rs.7 crore per branch, the KTK bank stock should go upto Rs.185/share on the day of share conversion and possibly even higher in the interim period (due to market optimism).

Consolidation may benefit Logix
Edmunds.com, a US-based provider of information on automobiles, discontinued licensing of enhanced imagery to third parties in 2006. Further consolidation may take place in the automobile imagery product segment, going forward. Logix, with its cost advantage may benefit from a shakeout.
The company is aggressively targeting European and Indian markets. They have setup a state-of-the-art automotive studio in Brussels to cater to the European requirement for high end automotive imagery. The company has established a sales office in Brussels as well. It is concentrating on increasing its penetration in the Benelux, French and German markets at present. In addition, they have established 5 sales and marketing offices all over India to target the Indian automotive dealer market.
The company has also entered the Turkish market with a local partner. Also, since we have Spanish language support, a major thrust is being put in the South American market which seems to be responding well to the company s products. They have firm enquiries from Mexico, Brazil and Argentina. Since the company is simultaneously pushing its products in these high growth markets, they expect rapid growth in the next 2-3 years in topline and bottomline.
The company s major competitors are in the US market. These are US based companies catering to the online automotive segment. They have been in business for a much longer period than Logix. Since Logix have the largest product suite in the industry, it eliminates the need for the customer to deal with multiple vendors. This is a very important differentiator vis- -vis competition.
The company does not have any real competition in the European and Indian markets. These are relatively virgin markets and the company s intent is to gain leadership position in these markets in the next 12-18 months. The potential in these markets is huge and they have the first-mover advantage which they need to build upon quickly.
