Hero Motocorp (Q3 FY14)

India Infoline News Service | Mumbai |

HMCL reported an OPM of 13.1% in Q3 FY14 reflecting an improved yoy performance (+47bps yoy). However, the margins were lower on a sequential basis by 149bps.

CMP Rs2,002, Target Rs2,350, Upside 17.4% 
  • Revenue growth was at 11.1% driven by 6.9% volume growth led by scooters, realizations were higher by 4% owing to better product mix with higher contribution from scooters along with price hikes implemented over the past four quarters

  • Margins at 13.1% were lower than our expectations mainly owing to higher than estimated ad spends and unfavorable currency

  • Tax rate was higher at 26.8%, on back of part reduction of tax benefit at Pantnagar and additional surcharge element introduced in the FY14 budget

  • Cost cutting initiatives to add an estimated 300bps to margins by FY17

  • Maintain BUY with a 9-month price target of Rs2,350
