MSSL to outpace industry
growth; Aims at $18 billion revenue by FY2020:
MothersonSumi Systems Limited (MSSL) has given a revenue target of $18
billion for FY2020, indicating almost triple of revenues from $6.5 billion in
FY2017. MSSL has indicated that half of the growth (about $6 billion) would
come through organic growth opportunities. The company has identified
opportunities across its product range – wiring harnesses (complex wiring
systems to comply with stringent emission norms), mirrors (camera-based rear
view systems and digital mirrors with greater field of vision) and polymers
(lightweight foam plastics and increased sensor technology in bumpers) – all of
which would significantly enhance the company’s topline. Further MSSL’s
subsidiaries – SamvardhanaMothersonPeguform (SMP) and
SamvardhanaMothersonReflectec (SMR) – reported a combined order book of
Euro12.9 billion as of March 2017 (includes Euro4 billion of new orders), which
highlights consumer confidence and provides topline growth visibility. Apart
from organic growth, MSSL also highlighted inorganic growth opportunities ($5
billion-6 billion), which would significantly boost the company’s topline going
PKC’s acquisition to fuel
growth; Open up huge cross-selling opportunities:
MSSL recently completed the acquisition of PKC Group (PKC) by purchasing
93.75% shares for a consideration of Euro571 million (Rs.4,150crore). PKC is
the leading supplier of wiring harnesses to the commercial vehicle (CV)
industry (commanding 62% and 43% market share in the US and Europe heavy-duty
truck market, respectively; and 31% and 23% market share in the US and Europe
medium-duty truck market, respectively). As per MSSL, the acquisition is
complementary as PKC supplies to the CV segment, while MSSL predominantly is a
passenger vehicle (PV) wiring harness provider. Acquisition of PKC would enable
MSSL to become a full-fledged wiring harness solutions provider (catering to
both the PV and CV segments). Further, PKC is exploring opportunities to almost
double its topline to Euro1.4 billion by 2018 (as compared to Euro0.84 billion
in 2016) by enhancing its presence in the Asian truck market (particularly
China) and entering new segments such as railways and aerospace wiring harness.
Further, MSSL is targeting to cross-sell (mirrors and polymer products) to
PKC’s existing customers (such as MAN, Paccar, Volvo and Ford).
Focus to improve margins;
Targets ROCE of 40% by FY2020:
SMP and SMR have opened up several new plants in the past three to four
years to cater to increasing customer requirements. The plants have now reached
optimum utilisation levels, giving benefits of operating leverage, which would
improve margins. Additionally, MSSL’s focus on value-added products in wake of
the stricter emission and enhanced safety norms is likely to augment margins
(MSSL has indicated that new order wins offer better margins). MSSL is also
targeting to significantly enhance PKC’s performance by improving operational
efficiencies and incorporating best manufacturing practices. MSSL is targeting
to augment PKC’s ROCE from 7-8% currently to about 40% by FY2020 (MSSL’s wiring
harness division ex. PKC generates ROCE of 40%). We expect MSSL’s consolidated
margins to improve from 10% in FY2017 to 11.4% in FY2019.
MSSL derives about 85% of its revenue from exports, which are
predominantly Euro denominated. Any adverse movement in the currency would
impact the company’s performance.
On a robust growth path;
Expect 15-18% upside in the next 6-8 months:
MSSL is likely to post 24% and 36% growth in its topline and bottom
line, respectively, over FY2017- 2019, which is amongst the fastest in the auto
ancillary space. MSSL is well placed to outpace the auto industry’s growth
through increasing content per vehicle and opening up cross-selling
opportunities through PKC’s acquisition. Moreover, with increasing valueadded
products and improved performance by PKC, we expect MSSL’s return on equity
(ROE) to improve significantly from about 18.8% in FY2017 to 22.4% in FY2019.
MSSL is a quality auto ancillary company having a diversified product and
customer profile with a proven track record of outpacing the industry’s growth
and successful improvement in the performance of its subsidiaries.
At the CMP of Rs.318, MSSL is trading at 32.4x FY2018E and 22.4x FY2019E
earnings, respectively. We have a positive view on the stock and expect 15-18%
upside over the next six to eight months.
