Below are few key observations of the MTAR Technologies issue:
The domestic precision engineering industry’s turnover is estimated at Rs 4098 bn in FY20, clocking a 7.1% CAGR between FY16-20. On the back of supportive government policies for manufacturing & engineering sectors, growth in the industrials and rise in penetration of high technology machinery for manufacturing, precision engineering is expected to log a growth of 6-7% CAGR over FY20-25 to reach a turnover of Rs 5550 – 6550 bn by FY25. The engineering manufacturing industry is very fragmented, but established players with developed technological expertise create entry barriers for new players, especially in precision engineering sectors such as defence, aerospace, nuclear, space and aviation.
At a higher price band of Rs. 575, MTAR is demanding a TTM P/E multiple of 56.5x (to its restated TTM EPS of Rs. 10.2). Considering the presence in the growth sectors like clean energy and space & defence sector and improving return ratios, we feel the demand valuation to be attractive.
