INDUSTRY ANALYSIS Stock Report | July 14, 2008 | BSE SYMBOL: MARUTI.BO ADM MARUTI SUZUKI LTD. Industry Growth [In terms of sales Fig (Units)] Stock Report | July 14, 2008 | BSE SYMBOL: MARUTI.BO ADM MARUTI SUZUKI LTD. -Crude Oil dips to one month low, resistance $70 - Crude Oil prices are facing downward pressure once prices reach above $70 mark, as recent economic data is still mixed and raising concerns in the mind of investors with regard to early economic recovery. With unemployment rates at multi year high, consumers are unlikely to expedite consumption in the near term, which can certainly curb the energy demand. Global risk sentiment is on the edge and if equity markets peak off, then we can see fall in risk appetite, which can potentially reduce demand for higher yielding assets like commodities. Weekly inventory data in US is showing that energy demand in world’s largest oil consuming nation is still more than 5% less than last year. Despite US summer driving season underway, gasoline demand is not picking up, which is certainly not a positive sign. CRUDE OIL PRICE TREND

More emphasis is required to be made in the luxury & SUV car division& After-sales services, in our opinion. The Automobile sector is one of the most booming sectors of India during the recent years. Though due to the negative impacts of the global downturn, there was a slump in the sales figures of different automobile companies. But there is 17% annual growth rate in the Indian automobile industry since 1991 especially in the passenger car division where the growth is roughly 28%.The demand for passenger cars is increasing day-by-day.

COMPANY ANALYSIS
  12. 12. Company standing: With the company being an industry leader in four wheelers with 55% market share, its standing in the automobile sector is definitely on the stronger side. Revenue: Maruti is showing a growth in revenue of almost 50% over last 2 years. EPS Growth: Maruti has grown its net profits at a CAGR of 13.65 % in the past three years.So in the coming years we expect it to grow further. Return on capital invested (ROIC): ROIC is an important tool to assess a company's potential to be a quality investment by determining how well the management is able to allocate capital to its operations for future growth. A ROIC of above 15% is considered decent for companies that are in an expansionary phase.Maruti has an average ROIC of 29.83% over the last three years. Dividend payout: A stable dividend history inspires confidence in the management's intentions of rewarding shareholders. Maruti’s average payout ratio has been as high as 75% over the past 3 fiscals. Promoter holding: A larger share of promoter holding indicates the confidence of the people who run it. We believe that a greater than 40% promoter holding indicates safety for retail investors. Promoter shareholding in Maruti is 54.2%(Foreign Collaborators). Stock Report | July 14, 2008 | BSE SYMBOL: MARUTI.BO ADM MARUTI SUZUKI LTD. FII Holding: We believe that FII holding of greater than 14% can lead to high volatility in the stock price. The FII holding in Maruti in 2008 stood at 14.8%. P/E Ratio: This ratio indicates relationship between the no. of times the EPS is covered by its market price. So higher the ratio indicates superior performance. In case of Maruti, it shows a stable P/E ratio over the past few years. PEG Ratio: It is a widely employed indicator of a stock’s possible true value. A lower PEG means that the stock is undervalued more. Here, it is being improving over the past few years. Debt-Equity Ratio: The greater D/E ratio indicates, greater risk to the creditors/lenders. This ratio indicates long term solvency position of the Company. Maruti has maintained a preferable ratio of 0.1. Current Ratio: It shows the short-term solvency position of the firm.In case of Maruti, the Current ratio is showing a deteriorating trend. Interest coverage Ratio: It is used to determine how comfortably a company is placed in terms of payment of interest on outstanding debt .The lower the ratio, the greater is the risk. It is also showing a deteriorating trend.
  13. 13. Tobin-Q Ratio: It is a ratio comparing the market value of a company's stock with the value of a company's equity book value. High Tobin's q values encourage companies to invest more in capital because they are "worth" more than the price they paid for them. Here it has been increasing, so it favorable for the company. MVA: The higher the MVA, the better. A high MVA indicates the Company has created substantial worth for shareholders. For Maruti, the MVA has considerably fell down in 2008 compare to 2006 & 2007. EVA: In case of Maruti, the EVA is showing a negative trend for last 2 years.So it is a alarming factor for the Maruti. QUALITATIVE RISK ASSESSMENT LOW MEDIUM HIGH -PAT,EPS,EBDIT has been increasing.operating margin to bounce back as commodity show sing of cooling off. We predict that Maruti’s balance sheet position will be strengthen in future. CONCLUSION This is the high time the investors should go for purchasing the shares because it is predicted that the share price will increase further. Adding to this from the daily stock price also the upward trend is clearly visible. So the potential investors should invest in the firm. SOURCE OF INFORMATION - -CMIE data base -BNP
