Jamna Auto Industries 
View: Positive
Riding the MHCV upsurge CMP: Rs169
Key points

MHCV to be fastest growing automotive segment; JMNA to be key beneficiary: The Medium & Heavy Commercial Vehicle (MHCV) segment has been on an upswing in the last two years, clocking a healthy 23% CAGR over FY2014-2016 due to firm freight rates, reduction in diesel prices and huge pent-up demand. Despite the strong growth, the MHCV industry volume today is still 11% below the peak levels witnessed in FY2012. We believe that the MHCV segment would maintain its uptrend and would be the fastest growing automotive segment (we expect 15% CAGR volume growth in FY2016-2018). 

New product launches to aid topline: JMNA has been a pioneer in the introduction of parabolic springs (more load bearing capacity compared to conventional leaf springs) in the domestic market and is virtually the only supplier, commanding a market share of about 90%. 

Cash flow generation strong; aims to be debt free by FY2018: The company’s cash flow from operations is likely to remain strong on the back of robust topline growth, margin improvement and efficient working capital management. JMNA enjoys a negative working capital cycle given the prudent inventory management policies and better debtor management. With no major capex lined up, the free cash flow from operations is expected to grow at a robust CAGR of 50% over the next two years. JMNA is aiming to become a net debt-free company by FY2018 which would further strengthen its balance sheet. The return ratios are also likely to be strong, with ROE of 29% and ROCE of 42% estimated in FY2018.

Outlook and valuation: JMNA’s topline is likely to grow by a healthy 13% CAGR over FY2016-2018, driven by an uptrend in the MHCV industry and new product launches, viz parabolic springs and lift axles. Also, the company’s operating margins are expected to improve owing to operating leverage advantage, a better product mix and operating efficiencies. Further, the healthy cash flow generation and minimal capex requirement would enable JMNA to become a debt-free company at the net level, adding further strength to the balance sheet. The company’s earnings are expected to register a strong 24% CAGR over FY2016-2018. JMNA is a quality company in the auto ancillary space with healthy financials and strong balance sheet. It is well poised to reap the benefits of the ongoing MHCV upcycle. At the CMP of Rs169, the stock is trading at an attractive valuation of 15.0x and 12.3x its FY2017 and FY2018 estimated earnings, respectively. We have a positive view on the stock and believe it can generate 15-20% returns from the current levels
