    06 th  June, 2017 Rising CV radialisation bodes well for JK Tyre  JK Tyre is well poised to benefit from the radialisation story in India as it is the largest player with 28% market share in truck tyre segment. Notably, the radialisation levels have increased from 6% in FY09 to 44% in FY16. Owing to benefits like better mileage & durability, radialisation trend in truck & bus segment is expected to catch up at a rapid pace and is likely to reach around 77% by FY21E. JK Tyre ’s share of radial tyres revenue has increased from 46% in FY14 to 58% in FY16. With the completion of expansion project at its Chennai plant, the TBR/PCR capacity has increased to 2.3mn/10mn tyres per annum. Further, CIL acquisition would expand its presence in truck radials segment with an incremental capacity of 1.2mn tyres per annum. Thus, we expect India business (contributes 86% to the consolidated revenues) to witness a CAGR of 10% over FY17-19E largely driven by enhanced capacities coupled with rising radialisation levels. Foray into two-wheeler segment has completed the portfolio With the acquisition of CIL, JK Tyre has forayed into the fast-growing 2/3 wheeler category (6.3mn tyres per annum). The entry into the 2Ws space not only helps JK Tyre in becoming a full-range tyre maker but also allows the company in penetrating rural markets. JK Tyre has launched premium 2 and 3- wheeler tyres under the brand ‘Blaze’. Notably, the product has been received well in the market. Currently, 2W tyres contribute nearly 5% to the total revenues & the company is targeting to double the contribution over the next 2 years. Turnaround of Cavendish acquisition to drive growth ahead Within one year of acquisition, JK tyre has managed to turnaround CIL. CIL turned PBT positive in Q4FY17 led by employee rationalisation & reduction in conversion costs. While TBR capacity for JK Tyre (excluding CIL) is being fully utilised, the utilisation level of TBR capacity at CIL has improved to 70-80% since acquisition. More importantly, CIL acquisition has enhanced the domestic capacity by 55% to 1,770 tonnes per day. JK tyre got an access to three factories located at Laksar (Haridwar) where the company would enjoy tax benefits up to 2020. Leverage ratio set to decline from FY18E onwards as no capex plans on the anvil  As domestic capacity has increased by 55% with the acquisition of CIL, JK Tyre has no major capex lined up in the medium term. The debt/equity ratio rose from 1.5x in FY16 to 2.5x in FY17 as the company has funded major part of CIL’s acquisition through debt. However , the strong free cash flow generation to the tune of Rs1747cr over FY18-19E would help in improving the leverage ratio to 1.6x in FY19. Valuations Given  JK Tyre’s dominant position in TBR segment coupled with robust brand equity, we expect revenue to grow at a CAGR of ~13.4% over FY17-19E. However, PAT is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~32% on account of low base effect. We initiate JK Tyre with a ‘ BUY ’ rating with a TP of Rs212 at 9.0x FY19E EPS.

Further, JK Tyre derives ~86%/14% of its revenues from Indian/Mexican markets. It commands a dominant market share of 28% in truck tyre segment.     JK Tyre is the major beneficiary of the radialisation trend gaining pace in the truck and bus segment. Radials now account for 44% share as against a meagre 6% share in FY09.    With an entry into the lucrative 2W space through the acquisition of Cavendish Industries Limited (CIL), JK Tyre has become a full-range tyre player.    India business is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10% over FY17-19E driven by enhanced capacities & acquisition of CIL.    D/E ratio is expected to decline from 2.5x in FY17 to 1.6x by FY19E owing to strong free cash flow generation to the tune of Rs1747cr over FY18-19E.    We initiate JK Tyre with a “ BUY ” rating valuing the stock at  9x FY19E EPS arriving at a target price (TP) of Rs212.    Valuations   Our target price of Rs212 is based on 9x FY19E EPS. Over the past three years, the stock has traded between 2-11x one-year forward earnings, whilst its three-year average is ~7x. Our target multiple (9.0x) is at a premium of 28 % to JK Tyre’s past three year average PE multiple. We are upbeat on the stock owing to several factors: a) diversified product mix with a greater focus on radialisation, b) holds dominant market share of 28% in TBR space, c) capacity expansion & CIL acquisition to drive volume growth, d) strong replacement demand and e) poised to enter the growth phase with India business expected to witness a healthy CAGR of 10% over FY17-19E. Peers like Apollo Tyres, at 12.2x/10.1x for FY18E/FY19E and CEAT, at 17.9x/14.1x for FY18E/FY19E, are valued far higher. Ceat enjoys a premium multiple (valued at 13.0x FY19 EPS) over JK Tyre as Ceat is relatively less leveraged (FY17 D/E ratio of Ceat was 0.4 x versus JK Tyre’s 2.5x). However, with higher sales, better margin & return ratios profile, we believe the steep discount to Ceat’s multiple is unwarranted. /E one year forward Source: Bloomberg, Geojit Research; Note: SD is Standard Deviation  Peer comparison Company Sales (cr) EBITDA Margin % FY17 FY18E FY19E FY17 FY18E FY19E  JK Tyre 7,689 8,794 9,880 14.7 13.5 14.5 Apollo Tyre 13,180 15,310 17,701 14.0 13.5 14.0 Ceat 5,767 6,467 7,502 11.4 12.0 12.7 Company P/E ROE% FY17 FY18E FY19E FY17 FY18E FY19E  JK Tyre 13.3 11.6 7.6 16.5 15.4 21.3 Apollo Tyre 11.5 12.2 10.1 16.3 13.4 14.5 Ceat 20.0 17.9 14.1 16.7 16.1 17.6 Source: Bloomberg, Geojit Research; Investment Rationale A well-diversified product portfolio The company’s diverse product portfolio spans across the entire range including truck & bus, passenger cars, light trucks, agriculture & off-the road tyres. With the latest acquisition of Cavendish Industries, JK Tyre has forayed into two & three-wheeler space. This acquisition not only helps JK tyre in becoming a full-range tyre maker but also allows the company in penetrating rural markets. It is the largest player in the truck tyre segment with 28% market share. Notably, truck & bus segment contributes the maximum 67% to the total revenue followed by passenger car (15%), light truck (12%), farm (4%) and OTR & others (2%) segments. Notably, JK Tyre is a pioneer in the implementation of radialisation in the tyre industry. Over the past several years, JK Tyre has added clients to its OEM portfolio across categories, showcasing its R&D capabilities. The company is consistently investing in upgrading its technological capabilities and R&D to deliver high-quality, innovative and specialized products across categories.  Comprehensive product portfolio Source: Company, Geojit Research Revenue breakdown by product Source: Company, Geojit Research      Many first to its credit  JK Tyre was the first player in India to launch radial technology for entire range (passenger car, LCV, bus, truck and tractors). Further, it was also the first company to launch V-Rated eco-friendly tyres with high performance. Impressive customer base & extensive distribution network  JK Tyre has global presence in 100 countries spread across six continents. The company generates 35% of its revenue from OEMs, 56% from replacement market and 9% from exports. It has consistently added new customers and supplies to most of the OEMs in truck, passenger car, truck, tractor & OTR categories. JK Tyre is a partner to some of the renowned OEMs including Tata Motors, Ashok Leyland, M&M, Volvo Eicher, Maruti Suzuki, General Motors, Volkswagen, BEML & Caterpillar India. The company has 143 JK Tyre selling points which service the growing needs of about 4,000 dealers (1,000 exclusive) across India. Further, the company markets products through 25 ‘JK Tyre Truck Wheels’ (fully equipped tyr e service centre). Moreover, it has about 230 one stop retail & tyre care outlets called ‘  JK Tyre Steel Wheels ’ which generate significant portion of PCR sales.   Diversified customer base Source: Company, Geojit Research   New products launched over the years Source: Company, Geojit Research   Consolidated revenue break up by market (%) Source: Company, Geojit Research   Rising radialisation levels to help in sustaining the leadership position  JK Tyre is well poised to benefit from the radialisation story in India. JK Tyre is the largest player with 28% market share in truck tyre segment. The radialisation levels have increased from 6% in FY09 to 44% in FY16. Further, radialisation in truck & bus segment is expected to increase at a rapid pace and is likely to touch around 77 % by FY21E. JK Tyre’s share of radial tyres revenue has increased from 46% in FY14 to 58% in FY16. Notably, radial tyres enjoy better margins when compared to margins of bias tyres.    JK Tyre commands leadership position in TBR space Source: Company, Geojit Research   Radialisation trend on the rise Source: Company, Geojit Research   FY16 121 FY15 63 FY14 65 FY13 62 FY12 40    Truck tyre demand to revive  JK Tyre is India’s largest player with 28% market share in truck tyre segment. Importantly, during the past five fiscals (FY11-16), demand for truck tyre has been almost flat when compared to long-term average of 6-7%. However, going forward, we expect truck tyre demand to revive & register a CAGR of ~6% over FY16-19E on account of four factors: (1) shift towards large trucks, (2) government focus on infrastructure development, (3) stricter vehicle scrappage policy & (4) shift to stricter emission norms will drive the fleet demand. India Truck tyre demand to witness a CAGR of 6% during FY16-19E Source: Industry, Geojit Research; Note: figures are in million units   Cavendish Acquisition –  The next growth engine In 2015, JK Tyre acquired Cavendish Industries Ltd (CIL), a unit of Kesoram Industries, for Rs2,195cr. Notably, since May, 2016, JK Tyre has started to consolidate the financials of CIL (acquisition impact) onto the overall financials of the company. The deal has added a capacity to produce 10mn tyres a year and hence the total manufacturing capacity in India will increase to 27mn units a year. More importantly, this acquisition has provided JK tyre an entry point into the fast-growing 2/3 wheeler category. Interestingly, CIL has a capacity of 6.3mn tyres per annum in this category. The foray into the 2Ws space not only helps JK Tyre in becoming a full-range tyre maker but also allows the company in penetrating rural markets. JK Tyre has launched premium two and three-wheeler tyres under the b rand ‘Blaze’. Notably, the product has been received well in the market. Currently, 2W tyres contribute nearly 5% to the total revenues & the company is targeting to double the contribution over the next two years. Further, this acquisition would expand its presence in truck radials segment with an incremental capacity of 1.2mn tyres. … Turnaround of Cavendish to aid growth The operations of CIL have turned around & it posted a profit in its very first year of operations led by employee rationalisation & reduction in conversion costs. Notably, the utilisation levels of CIL’s units manufacturing truck radials have gone up to 70-80% since acquisition. JK tyre got an access to three factories located at Laksar (Haridwar) where the company would enjoy tax benefits up to 2020. Chinese imports on the downtrend  Imports of the Chinese tyres have been severely hurt by the demonetisation drive. Further, the government is mulling to impose anti-dumping duty on imported Chinese truck radial tyres. This can further improve both volumes and realisations for Indian TBR players. India revenue to grow at 10% CAGR over FY17-19E Source: Company, Geojit Research   Mexican operations to witness an improving trend In 2008, JK Tyre acquired Mexican tyre-maker Tornel in order to gain free access to the North American markets. Mexico business contributed 14% to the total consolidated revenues in FY16. It has over 85% market share in Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) bias, 88% market share in truck bias and 8% market share in passenger line radials. It also supplies farm and industrial tyres. It has 3 manufacturing plants in Mexico & the total capacity is around 8.3mn tyres p.a. in PCR, truck bias and other tyres segments. Over the last 8 years, the capacity utilisation levels have increased from 40% to 70%. In FY16, JK Tyre has increased capacity in PCR segment by 1.5mn tyres. We expect the Mexican operations to register revenue CAGR of ~15% during FY17-19E aided by enhanced capacity.
