In Europe it is one of the top three manufacturers for external rear view mirrors, car bumpers and dashboard etc. Currently India contributes 17% of revenue and bulk of its profit.
Motherson is expected to register a 20% CAGR in sales through FY20. Key drivers we see are: an increase in the value of plastic and electrical parts per car (6% per year), and share gains supported by cost competitiveness, strong customer base and technology access. Our assumptions are based on sustained car demand CAGR of 4% globally.
Motherson’s EBITDA margin expansion will likely be driven by – lower wastage due to upgrades to its SMP facilities, better pricing due to the expiry of legacy contracts (end-FY15), higher technology content, both in mirrors (SMR) and plastic modules (SMP) and more supplies to premium cars.
Motherson, with US$5bn in annual sales, has under 0.5% share of the global auto parts market and ranks below No. 40. Leading suppliers like Continental and Denso are leaders, with over US$40bn in annual sales. That said, Motherson is well placed on account of its cost competitiveness, technological capabilities and strong customer relationships.
Motherson, being a supplier of electrical and plastic parts for automobiles globally, is poised to treble sales to US$15bn, boost consolidated EBITDA margins by 50%, to 14.5%, and increase EPS 6x by FY20E, to Rs 55. Assuming the stock’s 1yr fwd P/E remains at its historical average of 15x, the stock could rise more than 3x in the next five years, to Rs820.
