ICICI Securities Report
Key takeaways from 3M India Ltd.'s Q2 FY22 results:
all segments except safety and industrial continued to report healthy recovery. We note revival in automotive, infrastructure and construction sector and better consumer off-take were chief growth drivers,
revenues grew 21.8% YoY, but Ebitda and adjusted profit after tax declined 18.7% and 14.2% YoY and
gross margins declined 165 basis points YoY due to input material cost inflation.
Increase in manufacturing activities in India post production linked incentive would potentially be medium-term positive for 3M India, in our view.
However, we expect increase in raw material inflation to impact near-term earnings.
