ICICI Securities research report on Mahindra CIE Automotive

We recently interacted with Mahindra CIE management (MACA) and following are the key takeaways: 1) company is targeting to take India revenue mix to ~60% vs 50% currently, driven by fast-growing profitable opportunities visible 2) M&M India revenue mix is now at 35%, with newly-launched SUVs pushing up per unit value-addition; 3) strong demand from PV makers (e.g. Tata Motors, M&M, Hyundai and Kia) has led to MACA adding capacity across stamping, magnetics and warm forging operations; 4) ~20%/~25% of India/EU businesses are under EV disruption risk and management is well prepared to scale up the EV parts business to combat the risks; 5) PV demand in the EU is yet to see major impact amid the current macro-issues though CV demand would get impacted 6) in EU forging operations, power cost constitutes 4% of revenue (thus, surging power cost accounted for 700-800bps of overall cost inflation, though it got partly mitigated with the passing-on of ~50-60% of the rise in electricity cost); 7) management is confident of sustaining India EBITDA margin at ~15% and take it up to ~17-18%. We expect MACA to deliver a mean FCF of ~Rs5bn p.a. in CY22ECY23E, with RoE doubling to ~15% by CY23E (from ~8% in CY21). This would deliver ~7% FCF yield on a lean balance sheet.


Maintain BUY with a DCF-based target price of Rs345/share, implying ~14x CY23E EPS.
