While Risks continue to be there, the past 3 years of performance gives us more conviction in buying the stock. Core Investment Thesis : The Size of the Opportunity is large and the Business is less capital Intensive with good Return Ratios, thereby enabling an Investor to earn disproportionate Returns – if the company is able to execute its Growth plan. This along with an Opportunity to buy a company with good Near term track record at cheap valuations will help us earn Multibagger returns.

  4. 4. Key Investment Highlights • Rising Market Share :- Company since the launch of its RE backed product, has been able to consistently grow faster than the Industry. Even during the tough economic environments of the last 2 years, Atul Auto has grown well. The Company’s market share has increased almost 10X over the last decade which is huge, albeit from a low base. • Large Opportunity :- Even after the strong Growth of last few years, Atul Auto still occupies a Market Share of less than 15% across all segments. The Market opportunity is big enough for the company to grow consistently for the next several years, just by deeper penetration and plugging voids in the Product portfolio. Et • High ROE business :- The Industry is not Capital Intensive and considering the High Capital Asset turnover of the Business, Atul Auto will continue to be a High ROE business despite the temporary fluctuations in Margins. Company’s current RONW of over 30% will only improve going forward. • Ambitious Growth Plans :- Atul Auto has very ambitious Growth plans which can be seen from the aggressive Capacity expansions. While the current capacity itself is over 5X the company’s sales in 2009, it has already started planning to double the capacity over the next few years. • Strong Balance Sheet :- Atul Auto has a clean Balance sheet with no Debt and little complexity. The Working Capital management is tight leading to strong Cash Flow generation. This Balance sheet strength removes some of the Risks associated with small companies in Cyclical sectors. • Good Management with track record :- Company has a good aggressive management which has rewarded shareholders with liberal bonus and dividends. Apart from that the company disclosure policies are good enough with little worries about the Corporate Governance part. • Strong Growth Levers :- With Macro Economic scenario expected to improve slowly over the next 2 years along with increasing Rural Prosperity, we believe that strong 3-Wheeler sales are her to stay. Margin growth also has levers in the form of Increasing Scale, Brand Visibility, Bargaining power with both Suppliers and Customers etc. • Compelling Valuations :- Despite the improving Fundamentals and strong performance over the past few years which has decreased the Business Risk, the stock continues to trade at less than 8X trailing earnings allowing us to buy a good growing business at cheap Valuations. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

  6. 6. Indian Auto Industry • India’s Auto Industry has been growing at a CAGR of 17% from 1991 and is one of the fastest growing market globally. • Even after this spectacular growth ,the contribution of Indian automotive sector is low when compared with global average. • The automobile sector contribution to GDP is about 7% and is the key driver of the growth of the economy. • The two wheeler segment dominates the auto industry with a share of 76% and is the second largest market in the world. • The share of three wheeler segment in the Indian Auto space is increasing and this is likely to continue given its smaller size which can penetrate smaller streets. • The general health of the automobile Industry is affected by the performance of the Indian economy’s growth prospects. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  7. 7. Overview of the three Wheeler Industry • India is the world’s foremost producer, consumer and exporter of three-wheelers with domestic sales of about 5.13 lakh units in 2012. • Three wheelers are widely used in India as an affordable means of short to medium distance public transportation and last mile connectivity for goods transportation. • Apart from the domestic demand ,India has also emerged as an important export hub for three wheelers with presence in some of the South Asian ,African and Latin American markets that are replicating Indian growth story with rising disposable incomes but inadequate public transportation system. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

  9. 9. Competitive edge of 3 wheelers over 4 Wheeler SCV’s Particulars Three Wheeler Four Wheeler Tonnage 0.3 to 0.5T 0.5 to 1.25T Ex-showroom Prices 150000-180000 180000-400000 Downpayment+Insurance+Registration Rs.55000-Rs.60000 Rs.65000-Rs.120000 Availability of Finance Medium High Key Financiers Commercial Banks & Co-operative Banks NBFC's EMI(Rs.Per Month) Rs.4500-Rs.5000 Rs.5000-Rs.9500 Fuel Efficiency(Kms/Liter) 30-32 15-25 Monthly Fuel Cost(Rs) Rs.2200-Rs.2500 Rs.3500-Rs.9000 Maintainence Cost per Month Rs.900 to Rs.1200 Rs.1500-Rs.2250 Insurance Cost per Month Rs.600-Rs.750 Rs.1250-Rs.1750 Other Operating Cost Rs.500-Rs.750 Rs.750-Rs.1000 Toll charges & other Overheads Rs.1000-Rs.1250 Rs.1500 Monthly Income per Month Rs.18000-Rs.20000 Rs.25000-Rs.40000 • Three wheelers are better than 4 wheelers as they are able to have a better access due to its smaller structure which enables it to connect with smaller roads. • The three wheelers are better for their service. The service of a three wheeler is so simple that even the driver can repair it whereas a four wheeler has to be serviced only in a workshop. • The maintenance cost of a three wheeler is negligible when compared to a 4 wheeler which increases maintenance cost of the vehicle. • The resale value of three wheelers is also better than that of 4 wheelers. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

Attractive Price Considering that the Stock is quoting at less than 4.5X Cash flow from operations of 2013, the stock is definitely cheap allowing both Earnings Growth + P/E Re-rating. Cash generating Business Atul Auto generates Solid Cash flows which allows it to expand using Internal Accruals without any stress for Working Capital or Long Term borrowings. With a decent Product profile and Focused strategy, market beating growth should not be difficult. Atul Auto Margin Expansion With Volumes growing, we believe that EBIDTA Margins can inch up slowly to over 13% considering Economies of Scale and subdued Commodity prices. “S” Shaped Growth The company’s current “S” shaped growth is a result of its RE product launch in 2009.

  26. 26. Concerns & Reasoning 1.) Increasing Cannibalization : The 4W-SCV’s have taken significant Market share and we don’t expect them to gain. But still the Risk remains considering the deep pockets of many of these 4W-SCV manufacturers. 2.) Dependence on a single segment : The company is dependent on a single segment namely three wheelers which are highly susceptible to changes in GDP growth rates. Any slow down in the economy will eventually lead to poor demand for the segment which will result in weakness in top-line and bottom-line growth. 3.) Intense Competition from Bigger Players: Atul Auto is present in an industry which has leading players like Bajaj Auto , Piaggio etc who have higher market reach and brand apart from strong distribution network across the length and breadth of the country. Atul Auto was till recently confined to a single state namely Gujarat and is expanding its network which may or may not be as envisaged by the company. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  27. 27. Conclusion “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  28. 28. Price Chart Share Holding % Mar 2013 Dec 2012 Sep 2012 Jun 2012 Promoters 56.62 56.62 56.62 60.81 FII 0.11 - - - DII - - - - Others 43.27 43.38 43.38 39.19 • Atul Auto has been on a strong Upside over the last few years. In fact the stock has doubled itself over the last 1 year when all Small cap stocks have been battered. • The Stock is on a strong Technical footing with Higher Highs and Lower Lows, there by indicating more steam left in its Bull run. • Institutional Interest has still not picked up in the share and this can provide further boost to the share price as people enter it over a period of time. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  29. 29. Conclusion This is a surprising pick at a time when most Small cap stocks are getting beaten down heavily. But we believe that, Market conditions like these separates the Chaff from the Wheat and makes our job easier. In spite of being a Small Cap company in a cyclical sector, we believe that the company has shown tremendous resilience in its performance. While the company has a bad track record in the early part of 2000’s, we believe that the company has improved structurally with changes in Management and a more robust Product portfolio. With an aggressive team and so many low hanging fruits, we believe that the company would be able to maintain its Growth momentum and can accelerate with supporting Macro conditions. Company has also been launching new products and with increased Capacity and Dealer network, we expect an all round improvement in Margins, Market Share, Revenues, Profitability etc. With a Management which is Transparent and a Balance sheet which is strong, the company doesn’t suffer from the problems usually associated Small-cap stocks. At the current Valuations of less than 4.5X Cash flow from Operations, <4X EV/ EBIDTA multiple and around 8X trailing EPS – its definitely attractive for a long term Investor. This allows for both Earnings growth and Valuations expansion, potentially giving Multibagger returns. In spite of all these positives, Investors should not take a big bet (>5% of Portfolio) considering the Inherent Risks and other High conviction mouth watering stocks which are available. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
