Why should you buy this stock?
Sharekhan mentioned, "We continue to maintain our positive view on the company, as we expect the company to continue to outpace the industry's growth, given its dominant position in suspension components, new launches in automotive segments, and increased electric vehicle (EV) adoption in India. Gabriel is benefitting from its first-mover advantage in the EV segment, which has helped it to gain market leadership across the electric 2W and 3W automotive segments. Management is optimistic about the growth outlook, led by increasing EV adoption in 2W, 3W, PV, and bus segments and shifting consumer trends towards the SUV segment."
EBITDA margin & CAGR expected to boom
Management expects EBITDA margin to gradually revert to double digits, aided by softening commodity prices and improving product mix. Based on the company's well-thought and workable strategies and its inherent capabilities, we expect Gabriel's net earnings to post a 42.8% CAGR over FY2022E-FY2024E, driven by an 18.3% revenue CAGR and a 220-bps expansion in EBITDA margin to 8.5% in FY2024E from 6.3% in FY2022.
Sharekhan believe Gabriel's business performance will continue to outperform the industry, driven by its leadership position and preparedness to benefit from faster EV adoption. The stock is available at attractive valuations of 13.9x P/E multiple and 8.3x EV/EBITDA multiple its FY2024E. We maintain our Buy rating on Gabriel with a revised target price of Rs. 217, led by robust automotive demand, its preparedness to benefit from the adoption of EVs in India, and rolling forward target multiple to December 2024E EPS.
