ICICI Securities Report

Bosch Ltd.’s Q4 FY21 operating performance missed consensus estimates as adjusted Ebitda margin fell 95 basis points YoY to 14.3%.

Gross margins slipped 745 basis points YoY to 38.6% due to weaker product mix (traded goods share rose to ~71% of raw material cost) and higher commodity costs.

Automotive revenues rose ~47% YoY on the back of mobility division (up 57% YoY) while non-automotive revenues grew ~25%.

We expect growth tailwind of tractor segment to slow down in FY22/23 while lack of diesel growth in passenger vehicles, market share loss in medium and heavy commercial vehicle is likely to keep growth in check.
