Valuation and Outlook
On the back of pick-up in demand in rural areas, we remain positive on strong two wheeler volume growth in FY19/FY20. Gabriel generates 55% of revenues from the two wheeler segment and should benefit accordingly. On account of new capex plans announced by the company and slower than expected increase in EBITDA margin, we lower our FY19/FY20 estimates. We like the company on account of expected healthy earnings growth, high RoE, strong cashflows and net cash status. We retain BUY on the stock with revised price target of Rs193 (earlier Rs222).
