COMMENT ON MARUTI'S RESULTS Abhishek Jain, analyst at HDFC Securities We remain positive on Maruti Suzuki's (MSIL’s) growth story based on: (1) steady volume growth plus increase in PV market share (2) Increasing ASP, led by expanding portfolio in the premium segment, (3) incremental volumes from the Gujarat facility (4) Ramp-up in rural demand and 5) healthy ROE/ROCE (25% in FY19/20E) and free cash flows. However, challenges persist in the form of: (1) increasing fuel prices, and (2) slowdown in demand from cab aggregators such as Ola and Uber owing to cut down in incentives for car owners/drivers. We expect revenue/EPS growth of 13/17% CAGR over FY18-20E. The stock is fairly valued at 23x FY20E (5/10 yr median at 20/16x). Maintain NEUTRAL with target price of Rs 9525, 25x FY20E

MUST READ Maruti Suzuki posts record Rs 77 bn profit in FY18 on 17% hike in revenue Country’s largest car maker Maruti Suzuki has reported a record annual profit of Rs 77.21 billion for the year ended March 31, 2018, helped by a double-digit growth in volumes of cars sold.   The Suzuki promoted firm clocked a near 17 per cent jump in sales revenue for the year to Rs 781 billion. Profit, however, grew by just five per cent. An increase in effective tax rates and lower non-operating income due to mark-to-market impact on the invested surplus, compared to last year impacted net profit, the company said. READ MORE
