Operating income during the quarter grew 94 per cent at Rs 1,147 crore against Rs 593 crore in the corresponding quarter of previous fiscal. The healthy revenue growth was led by stellar growth in consumer electronics & lighting segment.
EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) margin remained unchanged at 4.6 per cent during the quarter. EBDITA margins and working capital improved, due to strong performance in the consumer electronics segment. Management expects this improvement to continue.
Analysts at Dolat Capital expect Dixon Technologies’ EPS to grow at a CAGR of 26 per cent over FY19-21E, given strong traction with key customers in its TV and lighting business. The mobile segment should also grow with addition of new customers.
“Management expects margins to further improve in the consumer electronics business and washing machines (WM), due to customer additions and higher volumes. Currently, the company fulfils 80 per cent of Xiaomi’s requirement of TVs, while its second-largest customer Panasonic has converted into ODM. Washing machines continue to be fully ODM, and Dixon is expanding capacity in WM for top loading FAWM and mobiles,” the brokerage firm said in result update.
