GLOBAL MACROECONOMIC SCENARIO:

2020 was an unprecedented year as the world witnessed the COVID-19 pandemic. With social distancing being the only tool to combat the virus during the initial part of the year, the global economy saw a widespread lockdown in several countries. These lockdowns brought economic activity to a complete halt and severely impacted consumer sentiments which resulted in the contraction of the global economy by 3.3% during the year. New virus mutations and the second and third infection wave has still put an uncertainty on the recovery prospects of several developed and emerging nations. Most of the countries have launched nation-wide vaccination initiatives to thwart the spread of the virus. The increased pace of the vaccination drive is anticipated to provide some relief to the economic activity in 2021. In addition, swift policy response from central banks across countries has ensured the flow of credit in the form of relief packages through cash transfers and subsidies. The accommodative monetary policies have ensured excess liquidity in the market to support growth. The combination of gradual easing of lockdowns, mass vaccination drives and accommodative monetary policies are anticipated to support the global economic recovery. As per International Monetary Fund (IMF), the global economy is anticipated to grow at 6.0% in 2021 on the back of low base and various initiatives by respective countries. This growth momentum is expected to continue in 2022 with a growth of 4.4%. The advanced economies are projected to grow at 5.1% in 2021 and 3.6% in 2022 whereas, the emerging economies are expected to post a growth rate of 6.7% in 2021 and 5.0% in 2022, respectively.

INDIAN ECONOMY:

Indian economy was already struggling in 2019 on account of various internal and external factors. The situation was further aggravated in 2020 on account of the pandemic related national lockdown. During 2020 the Indian economy contracted by around 8.0%. The economic activity in first half of the year was severely impacted by the pandemic. However, during the later part with gradual opening of the economy, Indian economy registered a strong recovery which helped in limiting the annual contraction. The economy experienced V-shaped recovery driven by growth in demand for consumer durable goods especially in auto sector, retail goods and revival of several infrastructure projects by the government. India is expected to grow at 12.5% in 2021 and reclaim the fastest growing economy status on account of low base effect and continued economic recovery boosted by increased public investment. The growth is anticipated to moderate at around 6.9% in 2022 due to the disappearing of base effect. The increasing FPI inflows and improvement

in Balance of Payments (BoP) is expected to further support the Indian economy. Though, there are still uncertainty in the overall recovery of Indian economy in the near term due to the second phase of the Covid-19 but the situation seems to be improving. Furthermore, continued public investment, accelerated vaccine roll-out and surge in domestic demand is anticipated to support the growth forecast for the current year. The expectation of near normal monsoon for the third consecutive year is also likely to help in recovery as India is a net exporter of agricultural produce.

INDUSTRY OVERVIEW AND SEGMENT DISCUSSION: HYDRAULICS:

Dynamatic Hydraulics is one of the worlds largest manufacturers of hydraulic geared products with state-of-the- art manufacturing facilities located in India, the UK and the USA. This division manufactures widest range of hydraulic gear pumps in aluminium and cast iron construction, different frame sizes, pressure and flow ratings and designed bespoke for each application, high speed low torque motors, hand pumps, hitch control valves, rock shaft assemblies, lube and water pumps, mobile control valves, orbitrols and complete hydraulic solutions for the Indian and overseas markets.

Industry Overview and Outlook:

Farm Mechanisation:

The domestic tractor industry in India experienced an unprecedented demand in FY21 after a dull Q1 which was impacted due to complete lockdown for almost the entire period. Q2 witnessed a spurt in demand, largely driven by low base and low inventory owing to a dull 2020 and helped by Government of Indias proactive measures to boost the Farm Sector. The period also saw good growth in power steering tractors. This was a period when the supply chain eco-system in India was still limping, migrant labour still unavailable (as most of them had moved on to their respective home towns during the lockdown) and the work force availability impacted further due to infections driven quarantine.

Q3 & Q4 witnessed continued increase in demand for the tractors and industry ended up with positive double digit growth YOY.

The projections for FY22 remain strong though industry may witness high single digit growth only. One hopes that we would witness a good Monsoon and Covid Wave 2 & Wave 3 impact will be insignificant.

India holds the second largest agricultural land in the world and is the biggest market for tractors in the Asia-Pacific region. The Government of India has recently introduced new farm laws which is anticipated to further improve the average rural households disposable income in the medium to long-term. The Indian Meteorological Department (IMT) has predicted a near normal monsoon in 2021 for the third consecutive year. The combination of all these factors is anticipated to continue driving the demand for tractors and other agri-machineries in FY2022.

Construction and Material Handling:

The construction and off-highway vehicles sector experienced a muted performance in Q1 and a good portion of Q2.This was again due to lockdowns in Q1 and its impact on supply chain and labour availability extending to a large part of Q2 as well. The industry witnessed a growth in demand from end October and the trend sustained till Q4 (February).

The Indian budget has been infrastructure focused with significant investments planned in projects like highways, renewable energy and urban transport which is expected to drive demand for construction equipment and building materials. The Government has already allocated USD 24.27 billion and USD 6.85 billion towards transport infrastructure and housing and urban development sector in the Union Budget 2020-21. In addition, policy support such as Housing for All, Smart City Mission and 100% FDI through automatic route in infrastructure are expected to further contribute to the growth in this sector.

Segment Overview:

Dynamatic Hydraulic manufactures high precision hydraulic aggregates for tractors, construction equipment, material handling and machine tool industries. The Company has three state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities at Bengaluru for Geared Products- Pumps and Motors, Integrated Hydraulic solutions like hitch control valves, Rockshaft Assemblies and Power Units for defence applications. This manufacturing facility is supported by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) approved design, R&D center and a rapid prototyping laboratory.

The Company continues to enjoy a leading market share of approximately 75% in the organized Indian tractor industry and is the partner of choice for almost all the tractor OEMs globally. Dynamatic Technologies also designs and builds hydraulic hitch control valve with draft control and complete rockshaft assembly for the agricultural tractors.

The demand for equipment with higher horsepower (i.e. over 50 HP) is expected to continue to grow faster than the industry both in the domestic market as well as internationally. Dynamatic Technologies is strategically positioned to cater to this market sector with highest installed capacity in India to produce tandem pumps. The tractor industry in India is expected to grow with current farm mechanisation levels only at around 50% as compared to Europe or America where the mechanisation levels are to the tune of 85%. This local demand will continue to drive growth for Dynamatic Technologies, from the local tractor manufacturing companies in India.

There is also an increasing global demand for mid HP tractors (up to 75 HP) that most Indian tractor companies are manufacturing. Current levels of exports stand at meagre 10%, which in next 5 years is expected to rise to over 25%. The growth for Dynamatic Technologies will be driven not just by the domestic demand but also by the demand for domestic tractors in global markets.

The Company is also increasing its share of business with all tractor manufacturing OEMs which will further aid future growth. While continuing to consolidate its market leadership position in agriculture sector and given the growth potential in the construction equipment sector. Dynamatic Technologies is investing in the development of high pressure, heavy-duty cast iron pumps to cater to the construction equipment sector. These products are in various stages of development and testing, which will cater to the global OEMs. The Company has already developed hydro motors for this sector, which are currently undergoing trials with various global OEMs. The Company has also integrated its supply chain into a global supply chain for hydraulics which provides the Company with better bargaining capabilities and enables it to keep its costs competitive.

Operational and Financial Performance

Particulars FY2021 FY2020 Change(%)
Revenue 29,763 29,500 0.9%
EBITDA 3,109 2,286 36.0%
Margin % 10.4% 7.7%

The performance of the Hydraulics segment was severely impacted in the first half of the year due to global slowdown and pandemic related lockdowns. However, in H2 FY2021 the demand increased significantly, resulting in moderate growth in revenue coupled with significant improvement in profitability for the year. The margin enhancement was driven by strong demand across our product portfolio coupled with better product mix. In addition, various cost optimization measures were implemented.

Dynamatic Hydraulics, Swindon, UK, had a flat 2021 with revenue numbers 9.33 Million Pounds, sliding below 2020 numbers of 9.57 million pounds. This was largely due to impact of Covid-19 and the disruptions in global supply chain ecosystem caused by the pandemic.

Looking forward, 2022 will witness a reasonable growth with tractor industry volumes picking up in USA and the start of production for one of our largest projects in hydraulics in recent times. We are hoping that there would be no further disruptions due to Covid-19 and the supply chain ecosystem which has thus far been constrained will be up and running full scale. This would help us lower our turnaround time and boost our revenues. The market for Farm mechanization and construction equipment in Europe and USA looks reasonably buoyant. Covid has not allowed us to switch to India supply chain to the extent planned. We are hoping that we will be able to realise full potential of the supply base developed in India in the year 2022.

Industry Overview and Outlook:

Automobile sales across segments in India, which is the worlds fifth largest market, slipped to a six-year low during FY2021, as per Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM). In addition to the ongoing global pandemic, the sector was also impacted due to a structural slowdown, led by a slew of regulatory changes, coupled with a struggling economy. The five-year (2015-16 to 2020-21) compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of the overall auto industry is now negative at 2%, against 5.7% growth it saw in the previous five years (from 2010-11 to 2015-16). The decadal growth in the auto industry has now slowed from 12.8% to 1.8%, indicating other structural challenges in the sector in addition to the pandemic. Also, there is uncertainty in the value chain owing to shortage of manpower, raw material, and other resources. The manufacturers entered the year with a higher cost structure, lower volumes as the BS-IV models are phased out, and BS-VI models ramped up gradually. Helped by a low base of last year and a strong preference for personal mobility, most passenger vehicle makers experienced strong growth in the Q4 FY2021. The first half of FY2021 saw muted demand due to pandemic related restrictions. As per SIAM, the automobile industry sales volumes declined by around 13.6% to 18.6 million units. The performance of the sector was more severely impacted in initial part of the year on account of nation-wide lockdowns and resulting weak consumer sentiments. However, the demand picked up after the gradual opening of economic activities in the second half of the fiscal year. This sudden spurt in demand in the auto industry has been attributed to both pent-up demand as well as excess liquidity in the market provided by lower interest rates.

With this objective, various initiatives such as Make in India, Automotive Mission Plan 2026, and National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020 have been recently launched by the government. These initiatives are anticipated to be beneficial for the manufacturing companies. In addition, the introduction of vehicle scrappage policy in Union Budget 2021-22 is expected to drive demand for new vehicles as the old and unfit vehicles is withdrawn from India roads.

Sourcing Hub: Over the recent years, India has emerged as the global components sourcing hub as the major global OEMs are sourcing components from India for their global operations. Various global Tier-1 suppliers have also announced plans to increase their procurement from India.

Investment in R&D: India is experiencing increased investment in setting-up R&D operations & laboratories to conduct activities such as analysis, simulation & engineering animations. The trend is further supported by the growth of global OEM sourcing from India & increased indigenisation by global OEMs.

Opening of Defense Sector: The Indian Government has increased the FDI limit in defense sector from 49% to 74%, with the objective of enhancing national security, self-sufficiency in product design, increase investments, income and employment. Furthermore, allowing of private participation in the defense sector is anticipated to provide impetus to the indigenous manufacturing in the sector.

Focus on Agriculture Sector and Farmer Income: One of

the key focus area of the Indian Government is agriculture sector. Various initiatives have been undertaken over last few years to enhance productivity, reduce wastages and increase farmers income. All these initiatives coupled with favourable monsoon bodes well for the Tractor and Farm equipment sector.

Strong Technology and Manufacturing Platform:

Dynamatic Technologies is always committed to enhance its existing capabilities and with that focus it has made significant investments, in particular, the Aerospace segment. The Companys performance is expected to benefit from the ramp up in the order book of the Aerospace segment.

Diverse Product Portfolio and End Market Segments:

Dynamatic Technologies product portfolio is diversified across three key business segments, namely Hydraulics, Aerospace and Automotive. This spread ensures that the Company performance is relatively stable and not dependent on any single industry segment. The Company has an optimum mix of high growth and stable end markets.

Regulatory changes: Increased stringency and compliance requirements in regulations related to environment and safety standards are expected to increase cost and complexity for the component manufacturers. With a wide product portfolio and a strong R&D base, Dynamatic Technologies is positioned to capitalise on the industry opportunities. Government investment in the automotive sector and infrastructure development will also help Dynamatic Technologies grow.

RISKS & CONCERNS:

Growth in Indian economy: Pandemic induced lockdowns had severely impacted economic activity in the first half of 2020. However, during the second part of the year, the economy experienced a V-shaped recovery. The drivers of growth were mainly the auto sector and retail goods. Various infrastructure projects by the Government have also seen a revival which aided in the growth of the economy. The recent announcements pertaining to increased capital outlay for the defense sector, larger allocation to rural development, infrastructure development and highway construction will prove beneficial to the growth of the Indian economy in the long term.

Competition: The business environment in which the Company operates is highly competitive in nature. In the Auto sector, most OEMs maintain multiple suppliers for their products and do not prefer exclusive contracts. However, Dynamatic Technologies believes that this is not a major concern as they focus on enhancing the quality of the product and ensure customer satisfaction. Furthermore, the longstanding relationship that it has with the global OEMs is an added advantage.

Impact of COVID-19: The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and the ensuing lockdown imposed across the country led to the standstill of the economy for a major part of FY2021. Towards the later part of the fiscal year, consequent to the gradual opening of economic activity across the nation, the demand had picked up. This was driven mainly by the consumer durables sector and revival of infrastructure activities.

India is currently experiencing a second wave of Covid-19 infections that has halted economic activity. Although there is near term uncertainty, consumer confidence remains positive for the medium to long term. The situation is gradually improving and active cases are declining. With the role out of vaccination, the economy is expected to continue its growth trajectory.

Technological Changes: In todays era, the technology is continuously evolving resulting in smaller lifecycle of the related products. The business segments in which the Company operates are very technology driven and therefore the Companys products also tend to have a shorter life cycle. The Company is aware of the prevailing risk due to technological advancements and has always focused on R&D. Dynamatic Technologies has a dedicated R&D center engaged in design and prototyping of new products, improvement of existing designs and continuous improvement of existing processes. The Company ensures a close working relationship with its customers to understand their evolving needs and focus on providing suitable products to match their expectations and needs.

Foreign Currency Fluctuations: The Company has global operations and given the nature and scale of the business, the Companys operations are exposed to various foreign currencies and related volatilities. The volatility in the foreign exchange rates can impact the financial performance and hence the Company is closely monitoring these risks and adopting appropriate hedges / forward contracts to mitigate such risks, whenever required. In addition, the Company also tries to match the revenue and expenses in the same currency to mitigate cross currency exposure and translations.

Global Macroeconomic Uncertainty: Given the global operations of Dynamatic Technologies, the business operations are dependent on general economic conditions as well as geo-political situations. The global macroeconomic scenario during the year was severely impacted due to the pandemic and the uncertainties continue to prevail over next financial year as well. The lockdowns and safety measures related to the pandemic has also impacted the productivity across the manufacturing facilities. The Company closely monitors the factors impacting the macroeconomic performance in its key markets and to counter these risks continues to broaden its product segments, increase customer base and enhance geographic reach.

RISK MANAGEMENT:

Effective risk management is fundamental to the business activities of the group.
