Prabhudas Lilladher's research report on Bajaj Auto
BJAUT’s 1QFY22 results were impacted by lower scale of operations and RM cost inflation. Gross margins contracted 590bp YoY/ 110bp QoQ, yet better product mix led by higher share of exports and higher USD realizations partially offset the RM dent. Also launch of Pulsar helped BJAUT to gain market share in 125cc segment (+300bps in 1QFY22), thereby aiding domestic motorcycle segment. Market share stood at 19.7% in 1QFY22 v/s 18.1% in FY21. Management remained cautious on margin outlook amid RM inflation. However, factors such as 1) healthy exports momentum both for 2W/3W and 2) likely beneficiary of RoDTEP scheme, are favoring factors, in our view.
We largely keep our estimates unchanged and retain ‘HOLD’ with revised TP of Rs3,919 (v/s Rs3,927, 18x Mar-23 EPS).
