  3. 3. Our Research Desk’s views on the Stock Idea Dear Members, Before we get into the details of this Month’s “Multibagger Stock”, let us understand the broad reasons for the recommendation of this idea, Considering the delays and difficulties in setting up large Manufacturing facilities in India, we at HBJ Capital believe that existing companies with strong manufacturing capabilities will have a good future. Also considering the sustained Asset Inflation in India over the last many years, the Replacement costs of these assets have gone up substantially and this has created a durable competitive advantage for the existing players. Added to this, India’s structural Current Account deficit and continuing Currency Weakness makes Exports based Manufacturing facilities even more attractive. Our idea for this month, “Balkrishna Industries” (BKT) falls in this broad theme of an efficient Manufacturing company focused on Exports. We also believe that, considering the possible Incremental Positives arising out of better Infrastructure, lower Power Costs and better Tax regime – Efficient Manufacturing companies will be able to surprise the Markets positively. Balkrishna Industries is India’s largest Off-Highway tire (OHT) manufacturer with over 90% of its revenues from Export markets. Company has very strong Moats (or) Competitive advantage over its Global market peers and this has led to consistent Market share gains. Company’s exclusive focus on OHT manufacturing has helped it to create a Niche in this large Market and register less Volatile Financial performance when compared with other Tire players. We have been tracking this company for many years now and believe that the Stock would provide attractive entry levels over the next few months for a Long term investor to add it in his Portfolio. While the company may not look attractive considering the short term issues, we believe that the Long Term Investment rationale has only been strengthened over the events of the past year. Even though the company operates in a largely Commoditized segment, “BKT still has strong Moats as it is the Lowest Cost producer of that commodity”. Also the company has been Investing to build its Brand along with a strong Distribution Network to protect its Moat. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  4. 4. Our Research Desk’s views on the Stock Idea We are able to foresee pressures on the company’s Earnings continuing over the next few Quarters, Short Term Pressures which are Visible :- Company’s Order Book has come down substantially over the last year. (From 6 Months to around 2 Months). - Dealers have moved from Inventory model to Order delivery based model, indicating the weak Demand. - Negative Operating Leverage which is expected to Kick in with the new Gujarat plant coming on stream. - Low Capacity Utilization and Higher Costs will pull down EBIDTA margins meaningfully, going forward. - Higher Depreciation and Interest Costs as a result of Capitalization of CAPEX will impact PAT margins. - Product Mix shift towards a higher OEM share would also lead to slightly lower Margins going forward. - “Mark to Market (MTM)” losses due to External Debt and Forward hedges will lead to one-time impact. Despite these near term issues, we believe that there is a strong long term Investment rationale as indicated, Long Term Positives about Balkrishna Industries :* A Strong Labor Cost Arbitrage considering the Labor Intensive operations of OHT manufacturing. * Efficient manufacturing leading to a 40% discount in the cost of Manufacturing compared with Global Peers. * Focused Distribution in over 125 Export markets with over 240 Distributors with improving reach every year. * An Extremely strong Product library with over 2200 SKU’s considering the Low Volume, High Value business. * Fastest In-House Mould design and manufacturing facility leading to creation of new SKU’s every year. * A Flexible Manufacturing facility leading to an optimized mix of Output based on the demand situation. * Consistent increase in Global Market share (5%) over the last 10 years with scope for doubling it going forward. * No major Capacity addition from Global Peers leading to higher Market share on the Incremental demand. * Majority of the Revenues from the stable and less volatile Agricultural segment and Replacement demand. * Tie-Up with OEM’s will lead to better Brand recognition, improving Realizations in the Replacement market. * Just In Time (or) Order Book based manufacturing leading to better Working Capital cycle and lower risks. * New large Port based Manufacturing set up in Gujarat will be extremely efficient with Captive Power plant. * Strong Track record of the Management in scaling up the Business and capitalizing on the Huge opportunity. * Healthy Return ratios because of good Capital Allocation, higher Margins and access to low cost Debt. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  5. 5. Our Research Desk’s views on the Stock Idea Considering the strong long term positives of the company’s Business model and the huge opportunity (9 Billion $ size), we certainly believe that Balkrishna Industries has a long way to go. With EBIDTA margins of over 18%, total Asset turnover of 1.3X and a Financial Leverage of 1:1, we believe that the company can continue to sustainably generate ROE (Return on Equity) of around 20% going forward. Hence it should not be seen as other Tire businesses which are cyclical and have poor Return ratios. In the mean time we also understand that it’s not a Great business, considering the lack of pricing power which is visible in the lag effect of passing on Cost increases and dependence on global majors to set the Pricing trends. Also being an Asset heavy business, the additional capacity coming on stream in an environment of slowing demand can cause lot of volatility in its earnings. Considering all these, we are not building in the business to undergo substantial Re-rating from here on. But when we are paying less than 6.6X Earnings (Trailing P/E) and around 5.5X forward EV/ EBIDTA, it is like buying a Commodity business and not factoring in the Huge structural positives of the business. Hence, even with a Mild Re-Rating going forward and the earnings growth from the additional capacity, the odds of making profits from this stocks is high when bought around the current prices. We at HBJ capital are looking at the stock currently as a “Good Business at a Good Price”. While we are more inclined to adding Great Businesses which we like to our Portfolio, we also think that - this stock if provided a chance to buy at Great price going forward (decent correction) will be a definite add to our Portfolio. The Research report is detailed and provides a holistic idea about the Business and the Stock. Regards, [ Gokul Raj . P, Head – Investment Research ] “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

  7. 7. Industry Opportunity & Potential - An Overview “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  8. 8. Global OHT Industry overview • The OHT segment is dominated by Bridgestone, Goodyear, Michelin and Titan which account for over 60% of the global market. • The global OHT market accounts for about 8% of the world tyre sales in 2013 at USD 14 Bn which has been growing at a CAGR of 5% in the last decade. • The OHT segment is a niche segment catering to construction, agricultural and industrial segments characterized by relatively higher margins of 15-18%. • The Specialty OHT segment constitutes about 10% of the total sales of the major players and margins in this segment are in the range of 15-20%. • The developed economies of Europe and USA are the key markets which constitute for over 60% of the global demand for OHT tires. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  9. 9. Increasing Mechanization to drive demand • The developed economies are the major markets for OHT and constitutes about 60% of the global market. This is due to the high level of mechanization in agriculture and earthmoving/mining segments which is relatively higher in these countries. • There is strong mechanization in agriculture which drives demand in the replacement segment. The Mechanization levels has been going up structurally and expected to move even higher. • The developed countries are focused on increasing productivity. The large farm size in these countries and the declining farmer population is boosting the demand for tractors and agriculture related applications. • Global peers are not expanding significantly in OHT market and the incremental demand of around 200 Million $’s every year will need to be addressed by companies like Balkrishna and Allianz. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  10. 10. Rubber – Major Raw material • Natural rubber forms 48% of raw material cost, while carbon black (27%) and fiber (6%) are the other critical components. Hence, Rubber cost movement has a huge impact on the financials of OHT companies. • Other components (Synthetic rubber, carbon black, fabric and chemicals) are derivatives of crude oil and are impacted with crude price fluctuations. • Proximity to rubber producing countries in the South East Asian region like Thailand helps in lower Logistics cost and more flexibility in Procurement. Hence, India has a good advantage compared with its Western peers. • Companies that have manufacturing base in countries like India have a distinct advantage over their European and US peers on account of low cost of labor in these countries, as Labor costs are extremely high in OHT production. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

Dealers, in turn, receive a higher margin of around 15% from Balakrishna Industries compared to 5-6% for global peers distributors. This is a win win situation for Balkrishna Industries and its dealers. • Incidentally, global peers manufacture goods in advance, incurring significant sales and distribution expenses. More specifically, capital employed is much higher because of this model. • The enhanced contribution of OEM’s will provide the company order book clarity and enhances goodwill and brand visibility. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

  22. 22. Balkrishna Industries – Investment Arguments “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  23. 23. Durable Moats “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  24. 24. Porters Five Forces Model Bargaining Power of Buyers (Moderate)  Numerous Options for buyers. No Switching Costs. Price a major factor for Buying. Bargaining Power of Suppliers (High) Demand outstrips Supply. Geographic concentration of suppliers = More power. Industry Rivalry (Moderate) Global OHT has several peers. Considering the requirement of high capacity utilizations, rivalry on price realizations Is there to grow. Product differentiation is low Threat of new entrants (Low) High capital requirement. Labor Intensive business. Existing players have huge moats making it difficult. Threat of substitute products (Low)  No major substitutes for Replacement demand.  Cheap Products from China, but Quality is suspect. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  25. 25. Balkrishna Industries – Low Cost Structure • India is one of the countries where labour cost is low which helps Balkrishna Industries to maintain a low cost structure and gain pricing Arbitrage over its global peers. • Balkrishna Industries labour cost in FY13 was 3.94% as against 20%+ for its international competitors. This cost advantage helps the company to maintain a strong hold on its cost which has been a major decisive factor. • Due to its low cost structure in India the company’s R&D cost is about 0.03% of sales which again is in the region of 3-5% for international peers. • This cost competitiveness has helped Balkrishna Industries to pass on any rise in input cost as the company supplies its tyres at a discount of about 30% than its international peers. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  26. 26. Growth from Discounted Pricing • Balkrishna Industries has performed better than its international peers even in a difficult market situation as evident in earnings during FY10. • Balkrishna Industries is a company with a total focus on OHT segment while for their international players the segment forms a small part of their revenues, which results in their peers unwilling to cut down on prices while Balkrishna Industries has a flexibility to price their product at a discount to peers. • Balkrishna Industries follows a discount pricing strategy with regard to pricing to keep realizations strong and allows the company to enhance prices even in a tough pricing environment. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  27. 27. Capacity expansion to drive growth • Balkrishna Industries is aiming to increase its global market share to 10% through capacity expansions. It has set up a green field capacity at BHUJ in Gujarat with an annual capacity of about 1,20,000 MT at a cost of about Rs.1800 Cr which will effectively increase its total capacity to 2,76,000 MT by FY15. • Balkrishna Industries has also completed upgradation and debottlenecking the existing capacities with an additional capacity of 12,000 MT a year. • Around 60% of the BHUJ facility will cater to manufacturing radial tyres which enjoy about 10% higher margins compared to crossply tyres. • The new plant at BHUJ will result in reduction of logistics cost and power and fuel cost as they are located close to the Mundra port. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  28. 28. High Entry Barrier – Capex + R&D Expertise • OHT business is capital intensive in nature which makes it a high entry barrier segment and the gestation period of setting up a plant is very long. Overall, the business is fairly difficult for new players in terms of achieving substantial scale and it would take a long time frame to get a foothold in the Industry. • With exposure to different types of surfaces, OHTs require different levels of soil compaction for farm applications and surface-gripping requirements for industrial and mining applications. Thus, it is a high-customization lowvolume business requiring large SKU’s to be competitive. • Continued focus on R&D activities has helped the company to develop an impressive product portfolio of 2200 SKUs spanning across the entire OTH segment i.e. tractors, trailers, earthmovers, farm equipments, etc. The strong in-house R&D team develops 150-160 new SKUs each year which is far ahead of the industry standard of 50-60 SKUs leading to growing Moat. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  29. 29. Rising share in Global Replacement Market • Balkrishna Industries has strong presence in the North American agricultural market. Since Agriculture contributes about 63% of its revenues it is less prone to economic cycles associated with other industries. • Balkrishna Industries strong performance in the US market is likely to continue as the company has presence mainly in the replacement market while other major OHT manufacturers have their presence mainly in the OEM segment. Incremental market share is huge for BKT. • We expect the company to concentrate on the Replacement demand and its business model of Distributor taking orders for production is well suited for this market. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  30. 30. Increasing market share in US Market • Balkrishna Industries has expanded its market share significantly from a meager 8% in CY09 to about 40.5% in replacement bias tyres. • Company has been able to establish a strong foothold in the World’s biggest market – USA through a solid distribution network spread across. • We expect the company to gobble up market share in the US further more considering its strong positioning in this Market. • In the US small farm replacement segment Balkrishna Industries is expected to increase its market share from the current 4% to about 16.5%. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  31. 31. Strong Replacement Demand • Balkrishna Industries currently derives around 81% of its revenues from the replacement segment while the contribution from OEM companies stands around 15% . • While this is expected to shift up in favor of OEM, we still believe that the company would continue to be a Replacement tire maker with strong focus on growing its market share in the highly profitable replacement market. • The significant contribution of the replacement segment insulates the company from any slowdown in the economy apart from providing it the necessary pricing power. • Though the proportion of OEM’s is expected to go up in the future it will not be margin dilutive as the company supplies its products at about 25% of its peers which places it in a sweet spot. • The enhanced contribution of OEM’s will provide the company order book clarity and enhances goodwill and brand visibility. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  32. 32. Lower Raw Material prices to expand margins • Raw material cost accounts for approximately 70% of the industry’s turnover with Natural Rubber (NR) being the key raw material. Natural Rubber, which constitutes 43% of the total raw material consumption, is available in the form of Ribbed Smoked Sheets (RSS). • Although India is the fourth largest natural rubber producer in the world, there is a significant demand supply gap in the country. Hence, Imports are an usual phenomenon in the industry. • While the domestic tyre industry depends on the domestic rubber market ,Balkrishna Industries can access rubber from overseas markets as it is entitled to duty free imports. • Balkrishna Industries plants is situated near to rubber markets like Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia which not only reduces its logistics cost but also provides for better planning and Inventory control. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

With stable input cost, any rise in realizations will give a big boost to the bottom line of the company. • Balkrishna Industries capacity utilization has improved from 67.03% in FY10 to about 77.72% in FY13. We expect Balkrishna Industries capacity utilization to be around 75% in FY14 & FY15. This Capacity utilization is robust considering the utilization is achieved on an expanded capacity which signifies the demand and potential for the company’s products. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  34. 34. Consistently high Operating margins • Balkrishna Industries has been able to consistently maintain a strong operating margins which is much higher than the industry peers. • Balkrishna Industries has been able to maintain strong EBIDTA margins by passing on Increased costs. But there is a lag effect of around 3-6 Months which can impact the short term earnings as seen during FY-09. • Balkrishna Industries proportion of radial tyres currently stands at 30% and with capacity additions in Bhuj the radial capacity is likely to move to 37%. Given higher margins in the radial tyres we believe the company will be able to maintain its strong operating performance. • The international prices of rubber has corrected by about 40% and rubber prices are expected to be stable which will further strengthen the company’s strong operating performance. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

  36. 36. Hedging Policy • Balkrishna Industries BKT generates ~90% of its revenue from foreign market out of which the company has nearly 50% US dollar denominated revenues and 50% Euro denominated revenues. The company has a natural hedge as it imports almost all of its natural rubber requirement in US dollar. • Balkrishna Industries hedges its exposure against EUR. The company hedged its exposure at the exchange rate of ~Rs 70/EUR for FY13 and at Rs 73-74/EUR for FY14 using forward covers. • The company imports most of the raw materials requirement however, the softening in raw material prices would be negated by depreciating Rupee against USD. To minimize such risks, Balakrishna Industries enters into medium-term forward exchange contracts and also adopts the policy of “Buy and Stock” large quantities during the lean period. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

Since most of the assets are capitalized in FY13 there is unlikely to be any upmove in the gross block in FY14 and FY15. Some Rupee fluctuations have also been capitalized and hence there would be higher depreciation going forward. • Balkrishna Industries debt has moved up in FY13 to cater to its Capex which was sourced through ECB route at a cost competitive rate. It’s cost of debt is sill far lower than other Indian tire manufacturers. • Balkrishna Inventory days is likely to move up from 49 days in FY13 to about 53 and 57 days in FY14 and FY15 respectively as the Demand environment is expected to be challenging. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
  41. 41. Concerns & Reasoning 1.) Adverse fluctuation in rubber prices : Raw material prices constitute 60% of the total operating cost and rubber cost accounts for 76% of the raw material cost. Any significant increase in the cost of rubber will affect its profitability. Further, synthetic rubber, carbon black and nylon cord are the by-products of the petrochemical industry. Steep increase in crude oil prices will impact the margins of the company. However, since Balkrishna Tyres derives 90% of its revenues from exports the company gets a import duty waiver. 2.) Currency Fluctuation : At present over 90% of the revenues of the company is from exports which are subject to risks in the forex market. Any adverse movement in the exchange rate can impact the profitability of the company. The company hedges its Euro revenues while import of raw materials act as a good hedge for USD revenues. However, forex volatility can affect profitability on account of timing differences in revenue receipts and expenditure payouts. 3.) Geographic Concentration : Balkrishna Industries derives 70% of its revenues from US and Europe and any slowdown in these markets could adversely affect the profitability. 4.) Imposition of Antidumping duty : Balkrishna Industries derives 90% of its revenues from exports making it vulnerable to the imposition of anti-dumping duty by any target market. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “

  43. 43. Conclusion The company’s strong Export based Business model in the OHT industry is its biggest strength and we believe that the company would continue to perform well for many more years going forward on this Core strength. The recent Rupee depreciation while may impact short term results because of MTM losses and higher Foreign currency debt, the inherent Earnings potential of the business has gone up substantially because of this depreciation. Considering the fact that the Management has a strong track record and have been transparent in communicating to Investors, Investors can certainly trust them to navigate the company during a tough phase. Moreover with the negatives being priced in to a large extent, we believe that the risk if bought at lower prices is not significant. The recent deal of Allianz tire with KKR and the value creation for Warburg Pincus, is a clear indication of the more Institutional money coming into the sector and capitalizing on the huge opportunity which is there. With Allianz and Balkrishna being the two most competitive companies in this segment, Balkrishna Industries will be a big beneficiary. Balkrishna Industries is well poised with its large capacities and with possibilities of further Brownfield expansion to take care of growth, for many more years. Investors are initially advised to take a small Allocation to this stock and then add more of it, incase of a correction. With the replacement cost of setting up BKT’s capacity in itself would be around 4400 Crs, we are certainly not overpaying for its strong Business model. Investors can enjoy strong returns, if there is more attraction towards good Quality Export manufacturing companies as we envisage. But that would be only an Icing on the cake. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
