Investment Rationale
CEAT’s Q1FY22 performance was in-line with consensus expectations, PAT declined ~86% QoQ mainly due to gross margin compression (down 315 bps QoQ). Revenue growth continues to be led by organic growth in CV/PV segments coupled with new order wins across both new and existing customers (e.g. Nissan magnate, Mahindra Thar). Outlook for H2FY22 remains mixed due to worries on potential demand slowdown due to covid 3rd wave and chip shortages led delays. However, margins are likely to improve in H2FY22 as inputs costs have started to moderate downwards (Bangkok rubber prices down >15% since Jun’21). On balance sheet side, consolidated debt rose to ~Rs17.8bn (FY21: ~Rs14.2bn). CEAT’s capex intensity is likely to peak in FY22, the brokerage expects FCF generation to improve in FY23E (~Rs3bn /~5% FCF yield).
