INDU: Yaris still an ace up the sleeve

  • INDU’s detailed accounts reveal a tough operating backdrop where the OEM posted 2QFY20 NPAT of PkR986mn (EPS:PkR12.54/sh) lower by 25%QoQ/71%YoY slightly lower than our estimate, primarily on the back of GM slippages as the firm contends with a tough consumer durable demand backdrop
  • Perusing through detailed accounts for 1HFY20 we flag significant CAPEX, with additions to PPE centered on Jigs & moulds, indicative of Yaris launch (PkR1.6bn during 1HFY20 constituting 90% of additions during 1HFY20) and significant depletion in margins, with manufacturing margins squeezed further in the single digits (5.7% for 2QFY20 vs. 7.4% in 1QFY20) as dampening free cash flow
  • Going forward, the normalization of working capital cycle coupled with the imminent launch of the Yaris (impacting profitability estimates from 4QFY20 onwards), where we adjust our profitability forecasts, with EPS for FY20/21F settling at PkR68.3/102.6/sh.
  • Following on from the same and amidst the confirmed Yaris launch (a topic we last covered on Dec’19), the current stock price translates to a FY20/21 P/E of 14.7/9.8x. At these amended earnings our TP for the stock amounts to PkR1,375/sh implying upside of 36.6% and a BUY call.
