Due to increase in metal prices, margin was increased. Total expenditure has increased by small margin of 0.7%. Going forward, we expect 15% CAGR in revenue in FY11-12; however margin is expected to be in slightly in pressure due to raw material prices. Earning is expected to be over 15% CAGR in next two years due to good performance in Engineering Business. Most of these below expected performance are already in price and downside looks minimal provided that raw material prices don’t increase substantially.

VALUATION: cooling products is doing well and expected to continue its performance in future. Only concern in Margin pressure and slow execution in Electro-mechanic segment.

Since next 2 quarters could be more likely to be flat although management is hopeful for better result in Q4FY11. We recommend BUYING @ CMP (150-140) for Target 260 in 24 Months and add a Value pick in Indian Consumption story through Engineering.
