The firm says that despite the challenging business environment, Craftsman Automation continued to increase value addition across segments. Orders won were robust in the quarter.

"We continue to expect strong recovery in CVs, led by M&HCV and off-highway sub-segments as economic activity strongly picks up in subsequent quarters.

According to the firm, robust order book is likely to be executed in the next two years. In the year, the company secured power-train orders from an American and a European OEM and expects to commence production in the following quarters, along with diesel engine manufacturing in the aluminium business. Its storage solutions pending order-book is Rs1.5 billion and revenues are expected from FY23 across segments. This augurs well for overall growth.

"We continue to expect strong volume growth in M&HCVs, off-highway and PVs, while the semi-conductor shortage and tepid demand would continue to impact 2W off-take. Accordingly, we expect 23% growth in FY23 and 10% in FY24. In the quarter, value additions in power-train were Rs2.1bn (Rs2.01bn last year), in Auto Aluminium Rs365m (Rs267mn) and in Industrial Engineering Rs970m (Rs620m). The Q4 FY22 EBITDA margin expanded 48bps to 23.5% despite high RM prices in the industry as the company passed on the increases across segments without any lag. We expect the operating leverage-led margin-expansion in subsequent quarters due to better capacity utilisation and off-take across the automobile industry. Hence, we expect margins of 25.5% in FY23 and 26% in FY24," the firm has said.

"We expect a 17% revenue CAGR over FY22-24; and 50% earnings growth, leading to an EPS of Rs 171.6. We maintain a Buy rating, with a revised target price of Rs .3,261 (19x FY24e)," the firm has said.
