JBM Auto (JBMA) delivered decent numbers in 2Q amid challenging environment for PV segment. Consolidated Revenue (Standalone+JBMAS) rose 10% YoY to Rs. 4.5bn led by strong growth in tooling (+24%YoY) and bus division.

We remain positive on JBMA, based on
1) Sustenance in Sheet metals business led by incremental wallet share from M&M, Ford, Tata Motors, VECV, RE and HMSI
2) Strong revenue potential in tooling business(high margin+30%), owing to increasing localization and outsourcing of tooling requirements by major global OEMs (cost-benefit of 25% in India)
3) Economies of scale coming in bus division, will foster margins and profitability going ahead. Moreover, the recent amalgamation of its subsidiary JBMAS and JV JBMMA (likely to be effective from next quarter) into a single entity will be synergetic and EPS accretive.
We cut EPS by 5% for FY19E factoring in 1H performance. Expect 27% EPS CAGR over FY18-21E; fuelled by improving operating leverage, richer product mix and acquisition of new clients At CMP stock available at 13/10x for FY19/20E EPS vs 5 Yr mean at 15x. We value stock at Rs. 560 (17x Sept-20E EPS) and maintain BUY.
