BHARAT FORGE

“Forging ahead”

CMP: Rs 349 Recommendation: BUY Diwali 2008 Target: Rs 395

Despite a slowdown in two of its key markets – Indian automotive and the US CV – and significant

Rupee appreciation, BFL registered strong revenue growth of 25% YoY and limited its EBITDA margin

contraction to 24.6% (down 150 bps YoY; however, up 420 bps QoQ). After a muted FY08E, we expect

an accelerated revenue and net profit CAGR of 14.8% and 28.4% respectively through FY09E-11E,

given prospects of business from India and the US, new long-term contracts moving into commercial

production stage, initiatives in non-automotive space translating into Rs 1,050 Cr incremental revenues

by FY11E and 250 bps margin enhancement over FY09E-11E. The company is also considering foray

into the Casting space for the capital goods sector. It is focusing on new growth & high technology

areas such as Aerospace, Marine & Rail, Power, Mining & Construction Equipment, and it has already

established a new production center in Baramati towards this end.

Apart from its global leadership in forging industry, we expect Bharat Forge to take some major

initiatives in wind power industry as it already produces some components of wind power generation

machines. Such initiatives, in the light of Bharat Forge’s global presence and expertise in engineering

goods, would lead to further appreciation of the stock.


GUJARAT APOLLO INDUSRIES

“Paving the way”

CMP: Rs 279 Recommendation: BUY Diwali 2008 Target: Rs 350

Gujarat Apollo Industries Ltd is an ISO 9001:2000 certified company. From a modest beginning in the

year 1987, the company today offers the entire range of road construction equipment that helps in

building roads. The product basket includes road construction equipment like asphalt plants (batch mix

plants, drum mix & mobile drum mix plants), wet mix plants or soil stabilization plants, paver finisher,

bitumen pressure distributor, kerb paver & road maintenance equipments like milling machines &

recycling machines.

The company is one of the lowest cost producers of the road construction equipments. The company

had sourced the technology from Niigatta, Engineering co, Japan & has a technical collaboration with

Barber Greene, USA. The company has over 1000 installation globally. We believe that having globally

competitive technology, and the capacity to price its products at 30-35% lower than the competition,

will give the company a definite competitive advantage to with stand the competition. Increasing

demand for higher capacity Asphalt batch mix plants (range of 120-240 tph) will give the company an

edge over competition, as Gujarat Apollo is one of the few companies to have presence in this range.

The company has taken various initiatives which will enhance earnings visibility even further. A

Technical Know-how and Licensing agreement with an European Company for manufacturing of 2

models of soil compactors and 3 models of tandem vibratory compactors. This coupled with recently

added range of crusher and mining equipment will strengthen Company's already well established

product range and will position the Company with all the important products under one brand. Rollers

and crusher range of products have much larger addressable market size and have versatile end uses

which will offer product de-risking to the Company in the future. At the current price of Rs 191, the

stock is available at 13.5x its FY08E EPS and 9x its FY09E EPS.

high yielding stakes in prominent financial institutions like NSDL, CARE, IDFC, IFCI, to name a few. We

Projected Growth of Indian Out-of-Home (OOH) Advertising Industry

The market for outdoor video wall is US$ 550 mn and expected to reach US$ 861 mn by 2010, at a

CAGR of 11.75%. A majority of LED sales happened in the North American continent, which includes

Canada and Mexico. The second largest market by sales was Asia followed by Europe, South America

and Middle East. Indian OOH advertising market is expected to reach Rs 1,750 Cr by 2010 from the

current Rs 1,050 Cr, a growth of 13.62%.

LED Lighting Business

With the ever-growing shortage of electricity, LED lighting is fast becoming the choice of the

consumers. The LED lighting market is expected to grow by 20%. The primary benefits of LEDs are

long life, durability and efficiency. When driven properly, a power LED can last tens of thousands of

hours without degradation in light output. The typical efficacy of a power LED, measured in lumens per

watt, is 20-30. This is much greater than of incandescent light sources and is only exceeded by

fluorescent light sources.

The company may look to demerge or divest its telecommunication business to concentrate on LED

business. The LED display business and LED lighting business offers a large potential upside for the

investors. At CMP of Rs 517, the stock is trading at 22x its FY08E EPS of Rs 23. Looking at the huge

opportunity in LED display boards and lighting space, we recommend investors to BUY the stock at

current levels.

Orbit Corporation primarily focuses on

redevelopment of ramshackle buildings of

existing properties in the Mahim – Colaba

region of Mumbai. The company has a land

bank of 1.1 mn sq foot under development.

The company is operating in the segment,

where there are very few large players

because of the tedious procedures and

requirements necessary to get the requisite

approvals.

It is also looking to develop studio

apartments concept in Mumbai mainly in the

area of Lower Parel for working couples. It is

least affected by the slowdown in real estate

sector, mainly because it is operating in a

niche market targeting upper class clients

and also in a city like Mumbai, where there

is significant demand–supply gap for the

higher segment of properties. The company

is expected to report a topline of Rs 800 Cr

and an EPS of Rs 65 in FY08. At CMP of Rs

663, the stock is trading at 10x its FY08E

earnings, which is attractive looking at its

unique business model and the sector in

which the company operates.

We recommend a “BUY” rating on the stock.
