Prabhudas Lilladher’s research report on Eicher Motors

We cut our FY23/24 consolidated EPS by 4/%7% and maintain ‘BUY’ rating as the retail volumes are set to see recovery with uncertainty over semiconductor shortage resolving and strong pickup in new models. EIM’s 3QFY22 S/A revenue increased by 3% YoY to Rs 28.4bn (PLe: Rs 28.8bn). Realization/volume came in at 19%/-15% YoY. Lower share of exports and inferior product mix led to QoQ decline in realizations. Company has reiterated its aggressive stance towards new product launches with a strong product pipeline over next 18 months. New Classic 350 and Meteor are seeing good traction, though supply challenges impacted order fulfilment over last few months. Company has created an alternative source for chips and expect chip shortage issue to resolve in near term.

Outlook

We believe next leg of growth to come from new product launches and export market as we believe 1) key markets like Kerala and Chandigarh are saturated and 2) incessant price hikes are impacting vehicle affordability. We assign SoTP based TP of Rs3,106 (v/s Rs 3,398), as we value S/A business at 27x and VECV at 17x on Dec-23E EPS.
