Geojit’s research report on Mahindra CIE Automotive
Mahindra CIE (MCIE) is one of the top global forging players with a strong presence in both Europe and India. Currently 2/3rd of the revenue comes from Europe, while the rest is from India. We believe despite demand push back for short term, MCIE’s key customer’s are outperforming the industry growth. As a result, the current order remain strong for the company. Increased business with existing customers owing to supplier consolidation and shifting the production to India, as primary hub for export is adding value for the company. Q1CY22 revenue came at 18.2%YoY due to growth coming from both India and Europe business by 15% and 20% respectively. EBITDA margin came at 11.5%YoY (-170bps QoQ) with gross margin largely flat, despite input cost pressure.
We firmly believe that the strong cost control initiatives and positive order book will help MCIE to tide over the crisis. We value MCIE at 12x CY23E EPS and maintain our rating as Buy.
