ICICI Securities Report

Asahi India Glass Ltd. Q2 FY21 operating numbers were a beat on all fronts as Ebitda margin came in at 19.6% (up 193 basis points) while revenues came in at Rs 6.2 billion (down just 1% YoY).

We remain positive on the stock due to -

1. strong recovery in auto segment expected in FY22 (expect 15-20% original equipment manufacturer volume growth);

2. faster growth in architectural segment on the back of robust domestic and increased curbs on imports;

3. leaner fixed-cost structure aided by structural measures, and

4. continued benefits of lower gas costs.
