We have accounted for recovery in domestic sales as chip shortages subside and we expect the company to continue to do well with exports. We have assigned a P/E multiple of 32x on FY24E EPS of INR 284.6 to arrive at a revised target price of INR 9,106/share (earlier target INR 8,000/share). The target price implies a potential upside of 19.3% from the CMP. Accordingly, we revise our rating to “BUY” from “ACCUMULATE” on the shares of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd based on the re-rating assumption with improvement in the overall financial metrics.
