The company is expected to seek support from global synergies and wide geographical footprint. The company should be able to capitalize on opportunities coming because of new regulations and focus is on providing future-oriented products to esteemed customers. The company caters exports to USA, UK, Europe and Japan. New orders provide a huge validation of the company’s technical capabilities and open doors for several new customers. In these uncertain times, orders are expected to hugely benefit brand equity of Talbros Group. The company expects that these orders clearly provide long-term visibility and positive environment. The company continues to maintain focus on exports and on technical validation of its products. In its gasket business, the company is totally BS-VI ready. The company focuses a lot on technology to help localize a lot of raw material imports. The company has made raw material sourcing agreements and these have resulted in savings in operational costs, reduction of raw material inventory and working capital investments.
  • Capitalising on industry dynamics: Indian automobile industry is being counted as one of driving forces of this economy, making up ~49% of India’s manufacturing GDP. Since this sector is deeply integrated with several other industrial sectors, it provides a boost to employment, exports and FDI inflows. India is a house of cost-effective operations, efficient manpower and is being considered as a fast-growing dynamic market. Country has emerged as core destination for several multinational automobile companies. Indian automobile industry faced challenges in FY20 and saw a brunt of lockdown. Operations of automobile companies were impacted, resulting in unutilized capacities and production cuts. Automotive industry has a solid and healthy base which should result in quick recovery. Revival is likely to stem from entirely new platforms available as a result of implementation of BS-VI norms. Apart from this, assured income to farmers and rapid urbanization should push vehicle demand. Demand for low emission and fuel-efficient vehicles should enable building of strong ecosystem for electric vehicles. 

Company to announce stock split

Much of the stock price increase seen on 21 July 2023 was because of the news about stock split and the company’s optimistic outlook. 

Veteran investor Dolly Khanna increased her stake in the shares of the company by 0.47% during 1Q24.

Growth of automobile industry should provide a base for growth in auto component industry. Good monsoons across India should propel rural demand which should supplement industry growth. Strict emission and safety standards and focus on digital tools in vehicles should make electric vehicles, connected cars and autonomous vehicles a key focus. 

Auto industry in India should seek support from aspirations of growing middle-class segment. Electrification saw positive business environment in India. Factors including falling prices of batteries and government’s supportive policies should be able to stimulate segment’s growth. Reduction in emission and less dependency on oil imports are some clear advantages of electrification.

Transportation sector saw several government initiatives in its favour, which should help automobile industry as there can be increase in demand for commercial vehicles. Recent government initiatives should provide needed support to automotive industry. Increase in basic custom duty by government on EVs for complete built ups, semi knock down and completely knock down vehicles in commercial and passenger segment should help promote domestic manufacturing and check electric vehicles imports. Government formulated partial credit guarantee scheme for NBFCs and this can result in improving liquidity and uptake of loans for commercial vehicle. It has abolished custom duty on lithium-ion battery cells import to promote manufacturing of battery packs locally. 

The company is expected to see highest contribution from its gaskets business to its revenues from operations. 

The company focuses on capturing newer markets and is dedicated on OE contracts with exports. The company should be able to move ahead in this business and support is likely to come from strong order book and relationship with customers.
