Gaurang Shah, Geojit BNP Paribas Financial Services is of the view that one can buy Aban Offshore with a price target of Rs 647 from a one-year time horizon.

Shah told CNBC-TV18, �It has scary memories for investors who would have possibly got stuck at Rs 1100-1200 plus because from there Aban Offshore has seen a one way down slip and there has been no respite. From hereon since the stock has corrected quite sharply we feel that the future growth of the company in terms of earnings also looks quite positive. That is why we have retained a buy on Aban Offshore. But however considering the delay in charter rates and the vessels lying ideal we have reduced our target price from Rs 690 to Rs 647. The positive that we look into Aban Offshore is, that Aban Abrahim has been deployed from this month onwards to Petrobas and this is likely to boost the operational profitability. The concern as far as two ideal vessel in form of Aban 5 and Aban 7 is going to continue for at least another 3-4 months which means effectively that these two vessels will start operating from second half for FY12.�

He further added, �The Company reported revenues, which was about 12% lower year on year compared to what it was earlier. Aban has also been able to repay a part of FCCB debt and going forward they are possibly hopeful that they will be able to repay the other. This repayment of FCCB is going to increase the financial burden on Aban Offshore wherein the redemption premium and other financial charges will come into effect so that might hurt the company at least from a short term point of view and the negative effect of this could possibly lay for at least one quarter, But considering the kind of correction we expect that from hereon the downside looks very limited and the charter improvement going forward would improve the profitability of the company. We have a buy recommendation on Aban with a price target of Rs 647 from a one-year time horizon.�
