The Indian automaker said shortage of semiconductors is likely to see Jaguar Land Rover report 50 percent lower wholesale volumes by the end of the September 2021 quarter coupled with a negative EBIT margin.
The broader underlying structural capacity issues will only be resolved as supplier investment in new capacities comes online over the next 12-18 months, so we expect some level of shortages will continue through to the end of the year and beyond, the company added.
Brokerages too have expressed their concerns over the shortage of chips for the UK car firm.
Here’s what they said.
ICICI Direct has revised its target price downward for Tata Motors.
ICICI Direct said, “We now expect Tata Motors FY21P-23E sales CAGR of 18.4% with FY23E EPS of Rs 37.6. The chip shortage-led production warning comes as a negative surprise and is likely to impact CFO generation in FY22E. Accordingly, we maintain BUY with a revised SOTP based target price of Rs 375 (12x, 3.3x FY23E EV/EBITDA to India, JLR businesses respectively; earlier target price Rs 400).”
Motilal Oswal has maintained a buy call on the stock.
“Based on recent inputs from suppliers, the chip supply shortages in 2Q are expected to be greater than that in 1QFY22, potentially resulting in 50% lower wholesale volumes than planned. It expects the situation to start to improve in 2HFY22. Hence, it expects a negative FCF of 1 billion pound, with a negative EBIT margin in 2QFY22. While there would be no near-term catalysts from the JLR business, the India business (50% of SoTP) would see a continued recovery. The stock trades at 9.2x FY23E consolidated EPS and 1.7x P/B. We maintain our Buy rating with a target price of Rs 400 per share share(Mar’23ESoTP-based),” the brokerage said.
