MSIL’s Q4FY21 EBITDA margin at 8.3% was under estimates (Nom: 9.6%, Bloomberg consensus: 9.2%). RM/Gross sales elevated 80bp q-o-q to 77.3% (Nom: 76.8%), which was the important thing purpose for the miss. ASP at Rs 466k, +4% q-o-q (Nom: 461k) was barely forward. Reductions had been Rs 16k (down Rs 4k q-o-q).

Mgmt commentary: Demand sentiment has not but been impacted by the 2nd COVID wave. Retails are impacted as 35% of the markets are locked down. Present bookings stand at ~200k. There isn’t any influence on manufacturing. The corporate took a ~0.8% value hike in Jan 2021 and ~1.25% in Apr 2021. There was ~300bps q-o-q value improve in Q4FY21 and there shall be extra will increase in Q1FY22F. Stock was at 32k at end-March 2021 and at present stands at 85k. Lengthy-term demand will depend upon financial restoration.

Our view: Close to-term retails are affected by ~30-40% as per our vendor checks even in non-lockdown areas. Nevertheless, we preserve our business view—except COVID impacts medium-term financial outlook, volumes misplaced within the brief time period could possibly be made up. We imagine MSIL is more likely to proceed dealing with margin stress as there’s a additional 200-300bps value improve seemingly in Q1FY22F. There may also be value of a brand new plant from April.

The corporate plans to make use of the present interval to fill stock for the rebound. Market share can be more likely to stay underneath stress, significantly within the high-growth SUV phase. We count on new SUVs fashions to be launched in FY23F, which might end in a turnaround for the corporate.

We largely preserve our FY22/23F quantity estimates at 1.91mn/2.14mn (+31%/ 11.8%). We decrease FY22F/23F Ebitda margin forecasts to eight.7% /10.9% (vs 10.4%/11.8%), which is under consensus (10.6%/11.9% FY22/23F), to consider greater value stress. General, we alter Ebitda by -16%/-7% and EPS by -14%/ -6%. Key draw back threat is influence on demand sentiment attributable to COVID; correction in commodities is an upside threat.

Valuation: TP reduce 7% to Rs 7,362 based mostly on 25x FY23F core EPS: We proceed to worth MSIL at 25x (unchanged) core FY23F EPS (Rs 224), on the higher finish of our anticipated buying and selling band (common FY22-23F EPS) and add Rs 1,585 money/ share and Rs 178 for subs. Present valuation at 21.5x core EPS is in honest worth zone and we preserve Impartial. We want M&M (MM IN, Purchase) and AL (AL IN, Purchase).
