Valuation & Outlook
Improving demand outlook leads to an upgrade in our estimates for GIL. We now expect sales, PAT to grow at a CAGR of 0.6%, -2.5%, respectively, in FY20-22E. GIL offers a play on the 2-W demand revival post Covid and possesses strong financials (debt free B/S, healthy cash flow generation, double digit return ratios). The recent run-up in stock price, however, limits our ability for rating upgrade. Consequently, we retain our HOLD rating on the stock, valuing it at Rs. 125 i.e. 22x FY22E EPS of Rs. 5.6.
