Valuation & Outlook
Overall auto engine volumes may stay sluggish in the medium term due to BS-VI transition, 3-W, 4-W auto slowdown amid Covid-19. While Bestway acquisition would expand E-3-W base, new product launches in high speed E-2W vehicles at Ampere and new business initiatives (CNG engines, after market and B2C business) may provide much needed growth uptick in the long term. We build revenue, PAT CAGR of -4.8%, -7.4% over FY20-22E, respectively. We value GCL (base business at 12.0x on FY22E and Ampere at 1.5x P/sales on FY22E) at Rs. 75/ share and maintain HOLD rating.
