"Retain Buy with a Target Price of Rs 1,135. Minda Industries is focusing on strengthening its own R&D capabilities and exploring tie-ups and acquisitions with a focus on PACE opportunities (Personalization, Autonomous, Connected and Electrification)," the brokerage has said.
According to the brokerage, the key risks are lower-than-expected growth in the underlying automobile industry, increase in competitive intensity, regulatory changes allowing cheaper imports, supply constraints at company and customer-end, slower premiumization rate, and adverse currency rates.
