We await detailed timelines for integration with Kubota's global operations and set a revised target price of Rs 1,200 at 16x Jun-22 EPS. We downgrade Escorts to ADD, after the stock has more than doubled from its COVID lows (+35% from our initiation). The fund infusion from Kubota has been completed, and demand has revived led by good monsoons/encouraging kharif sowing. However, valuations are now trading well over mean P/E levels and are factoring in the near-term positives, in our view.

Initiate with a BUY: We set a target price of Rs 950 at 15x FY22E EPS. We value the stock at a 15% premium to the last five year average trading multiple. We believe the equity infusion by Kubota will strengthen the balance sheet and will provide multiple growth avenues for Escorts both in India as well as internationally. Key risks: Any delay in implementation of reforms by the government, delays in fund infusion by Kubota/material changes in the arrangement between the two partners. We initiate on Escorts with a BUY as the domestic tractor OEM will benefit from the equity investment by Japans leading tractor major Kubota. The partnership will provide new growth avenues for Escorts across product segments (including mechanised equipment) as well as geographies (new export markets as well as manufacturing base for Kubotas international operations). Further, the government is rolling out structural reforms in the agricultural segment, which will enhance farm incomes. These initiatives will promote mechanisation of agriculture.
