Atul Auto's (AAL) 2QFY19 earnings missed our expectations on account of poor operating-level performance. EBITDA margin for the quarter at 13.0% was ~90bps below our estimate because of 15% YoY jump in raw material costs, causing gross margin to fall to 25.2%, the lowest in the past five quarters. Additionally, a 33% YoY increase in other expenses and 11% YoY rise in staff costs resulted in further pressure on operating-level margin. Realisation for the quarter grew 2% sequentially against our expectation of 1% QoQ improvement. Absolute EBITDA at Rs229mn fell 15% YoY, and was 6% below our estimate....

Atul Auto (ATA) top line growth was in-line with our estimates at ` 1,361 mn but margins were lower due to higher employee expenditure. ATA reported volume growth of 17.8% at 10,568 units which were largely driven by higher exports. Domestic volumes grew by 9% whereas the exports reported a growth of 100% in the quarter Q1FY19 as compared to the same period in the previous year. This was due to a small base. Going forward, we believe that ATA volume growth can improve only if distribution reach is expanded. Existing areas will offer limited growth despite addition of new products. ATA...

Atul Auto's (AAL) 4QFY18 earnings missed our expectations on account of poor operatinglevel performance. EBITDA margin for the quarter at 12.0% was 240bps below our estimate because of higher-than-expected other expenditure. We note that the company had in the preceding quarter incurred one-time cost towards new product development (alternativefuel vehicle) and also expenditure towards development of new BS-VI diesel engine. The management had, at that time, indicated that as the development expenses represent a part of the costs to be incurred in future, AAL may need to incur more such expenditure on account of research-related activity and the same trend seems to have continued in 4QFY18, thereby impacting operating-level performance. Employee expenses witnessed a sequential rise as the December 2017 quarter included one-time gains on account of...

Atul Auto's (AAL) 3QFY18 earnings missed our expectations on account of poor operating-level performance. EBITDA margin for the quarter at 12.1% was 300bps below our estimate because of higher other expenditure, comprising one-time cost of Rs22.5mn towards new product development (alternative-fuel vehicle) and expenditure towards development of new BS-VI diesel engine. It was indicated that as the development expenses represent a part of the costs to be incurred in future, AAL may need to incur more such expenditure on account of research-related activity. Excluding the one-off item, other expenditure rose on account of higher marketing costs and packaging expenses relating to export sales. Employee expenses fell during the quarter on...

Atul Auto's (AAL) 2QFY18 earnings were better than our expectations on account of strongerthan-expected margins. EBITDA margin for the quarter at 16.8% was 275bps above our estimate because of lower other expenditure, soft raw material costs, better vendor negotiations and higher-than-expected realisation growth. Realisation growth for the quarter was strong, with realisation up 7% YoY because of price hikes done for implementation of BS IV emission norms. Absolute EBITDA at Rs269mn grew 22% YoY and was 21% above our estimate, while PAT at Rs170mn was 14% above our estimate. At the conference call, the company indicated that it is looking at good volume growth momentum in the coming months as the demand has improved.

EBITDA margin expanded by 140bps yoy (+660bps qoq) to 16.8% (Emkay Est: 14.5%). Margin improved qoq due to benign mix, better pricing from vendors, lower marketing/warranty costs and enhanced scale. Management expects double-digit growth in volume in FY18. Also, momentum in volume growth will continue in FY19E, led by: 1) Launch of alternative-fuel 3Ws (Petrol, CNG, LPG and Electric) across India by end-FY18, 2) Increase in exports, from monthly runrate of ~300 units currently to over 500 units in FY19, and 3) Network expansion. Our FY18E EPS estimate remains unchanged at Rs21.9, but we have cut our FY19E EPS forecast by 5% to Rs26.5, due to lower volume growth assumption, factoring in...

We had a meeting with the management of Atul Auto (AAL) recently to gauge its performance in the aftermath of a relatively challenging environment in FY17. The key takeaways from the meeting are as follows: Market share trend: The management believes that with the uncertainty surrounding the previous financial year behind, AAL can regain its lost market share by launching new vehicles in the coming quarters. Compared to overall three-wheeler industry volume contraction of 8.9% in 1QFY18, AAL posted 18% YoY growth. AAL's domestic sales volume improved 12% YoY against 25% industry decline.

Atul Auto's (AAL) 1QFY18 operating performance was above our expectations because of 6% YoY growth in realisation (3% above estimate). EBITDA margin expanded by 150bps YoY to 10.4%, while net sales at Rs1.16bn was up 25% YoY because of 18% jump in volume and 6% rise in realisation. The spike in actual selling price (ASP) of vehicles can be attributed to the company passing on the cost of new engines to customers post implementation of BSIV emission norms. The company went for a price hike in the range of 3% - 4% for its BS-IV vehicles in April 2017, but witnessed gross margin shrinking by 150bps in 1QFY18 because of the rise in commodity prices. Going forward, the management is confident of clocking double-digit volume growth in FY18 backed by growth in domestic and export markets....
