Investment rationale
The brokerage believes that TVS Motors’ (TVSM) performance in Q3FY22 on the execution front was commendable – generating a 10% EBITDA margin (up about 50 basis points year-over-year) despite volumes down around 11% and unit cost of raw materials up around 19% year-on-year. EBITDA per unit increased by 25% YoY to Rs 6.5,000, driven by approximately 19% increase in ASP (due to mix and price increase of approximately 5% ), coupled with cost reduction exercises. TVSM’s diverse domestic portfolio, superior export mix and the success of recent 125cc launches demonstrate its ability to generate superior EBITDA growth. The brokerage firm believes the EV subsidiary would create opportunities to unlock potential value and grow the EV business, while Norton, the BMW combination and e-bike brands would help it achieve its global ambitions. Capital expenditure and investment of Rs 23 billion in FY22 would result in negative FCF and subsequent increase in debt.
