Dolat Capital Report

Escorts Ltd. delivered a decent operating performance in Q1 FY21 amid a tough environment. Its Ebitda de-grew 16% YoY to Rs 1.19 billion (versus estimate Rs 1.13 billion).

Ebitda margin improved 125 basis points YoY to 11.3% led by better product mix (higher HP tractor) and cost control initiatives.

Revenue declined 25.4% to Rs 10.61 billion led by 12.7% decline in agrimachinery products, 75% in construction equipment and 53% in railway equipment.

Management stated that the overall rural sentiment is positive because of the record output of Rabi crop and a good early monsoon. Tractor sales grew 22% YoY in June, led by a sharp 60% growth in the southern region.

Despite weak Q1, the management expects lower single digit growth for the tractor industry for FY21.

The company is operating at 50-60% utilization and is expected to scale up to full capacity by mid-August with smoothening of supply chain and labor issues.
