Robust Performance In the Next Two Years

According to the brokerage, "Q4 FY22 revenues grew 10% y/y and q/q to Rs3.1bn, on strong demand in domestic M&HCVs, while high steel prices squeezed the gross margin 137bps q/q to 54.1%. Production was 18,000 tons (FY22 61,000 tons). Domestic M&HCVs have consistently grown monthly and are expected to improve further in subsequent quarters on revived economic activity, led by construction, cement and allied sectors. In exports, semiconductor shortages continue to curb volumes in the US while geopolitical tensions have curtailed sentiment in Europe. In EVs, the company is developing products specifically to export markets for CVs and expects production to commence by H2 FY23. Also, a new 6,300-ton press line is expected to be commissioned in FY23, boosting capacity. Accordingly, we expect 18% growth in FY23 and 20% in FY24."

"The Q4 FY22 EBITDA margin contracted 244bps q/q, to 17% as steel prices continued upward last quarter. Higher freight expenses too shaved margins, said management. It has a pass-through with a quarter's lag and has already recouped most RM costs from customers. With expected volume growth in M&HCVs, we expect margins to expand to 19% in FY23 and FY24," the brokerage has said.
