Motilal Oswal Report
Bharat Forge Ltd.’s Q2 FY23 standalone performance was a miss due to a one-time cost in the defense business and cost inflation. While all its core businesses are seeing a sharp cyclical recovery, its initiatives to diversify into aluminum, light-weighting, and electric vehicle components have started to fructify.
FY23 will be the first year to clock a contribution from the recently acquired businesses as well as from new aluminum forging capacities in the Europe and U.S.
We have lowered our FY23 consolidated earnings per share estimate by ~19% to factor in:
consolidation of Sanghvi Forgings and JS Autocast (positive contribution) and the 10,000 tonne aluminum plant in the U.S. (losses in its first year of operation), and
cost inflation and a one-time charge in the standalone business.
