Emkay Global Financial's research report on Suprajit Engineering
Founded in 1985, Suprajit Engineering (Suprajit) is among the top-three global manufacturers of control cables and halogen bulbs. Suprajit has a diversified revenue base across segments (Auto Cable: 59%; Non-Auto Cable: 23%; Lamps: 19%) and geographies (India/Overseas: 47%/53%). We forecast revenue CAGR of 25% over FY22-25E, driven by: 1) cyclical recovery in the underlying industry (8% medium-term volume CAGR); 2) market-share gains set to add 3pps outperformance vs. the industry, thanks to decentralized plant locations and competitive pricing owing to scale advantages; 3) growth in content per vehicle (CPV) led by new products (~Rs50,000/unit opportunity). We forecast 28% EPS CAGR over FY22-25E for Suprajit, encouraged by the 25% revenue CAGR and 50bps EBITDA margin expansion. RoIC is likely to improve to 20% in FY25E from 15% in FY22. We estimate average annual FCF generation of Rs2.2bn during FY24E/25E and expect the company’s balance sheet to have net-cash of Rs2.1bn by FY25E vs. net-debt of Rs1bn in FY23E (post acquisition of LDC).
We initiate coverage with a BUY recommendation and Sep-23E TP of Rs440, based on DCF methodology which implies a 20x forward P/E. Downside risks: Slower acceptance of new products (we have modelled-in 25% revenue CAGR through to FY28E), faster EV and LED penetration, and adverse commodity/currency price movement.
