Mahindra CIE🚚🚚 has come out with its annual report!

A thread 🧵on -

Insights by the company on the auto sector
Management Discussion
Direction of the company

Do share around for maximum reach!

Let's go! 👇

Main products for the company are:-

Gears+castings+aluminium products

Main operations in:-


Europe business🌍:-


Production for MHCVs in Europe has cumulatively fallen by ~17%.

The forecast for MHCV growth in CY21 is 11.4%.

However, CY18 numbers will once again be
achieved only in CY24.

Light Vehicles🚘:-

For Light vehicles the data shows that the production
fell by 22% in CY20.

The PV market in Europe is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 4.6%. Stable pattern of annual growth that is normally observed with this market will return C22 onwards

India Business🇮🇳:-


Data from the SIAM shows that PV production declined in CY20 by 23.4%.

Though the long-term picture for the PV remains healthy.

IHS global, expects the Indian light vehicles ( to grow at a CAGR of 10.2% over a period of 2020-25.

2 Wheelers🛵:-

The Two-Wheeler industry production has shown a second year of decline of about 23% in CY20.

As demand comes back CRISIL expects the domestic two wheeler market to grow by 5-7% CAGR bw FY20-FY25.


The Tractor industry in India has shown a healthy increase by about 11% in CY20.

CRISIL forecasts are also positive with CAGR between FY20-FY25 expected to be 4-6%.

The level of farm mechanisation in India is still sub optimal and this will drive demand.


MHCV production in India which had dropped of 33% in CY19 was further hit by a steep drop of ~54% in CY20.

While long term forecasts for the next 5 years made
by different agencies are quite divergent, they all forecast a sharp recovery from the low of CY20.

MCIEs performance in Europe🌍:-

Operations in Germany and Italy were severely hit.
MCIE embarked on restructuring to save cash.

Demand is slowly coming back

MCIEs performance in India🇮🇳:-

Efforts were accelerated to reduce the Break-Even level of the plants to make them more efficient

Focus on generating new orders increased and was aided by some customers choosing to
shift sourcing from China to India.

Future strategy:-


CV forgings business in Europe has seen some business downsizing and layoffs to improve profitability.

The strategy of reducing unprofitable
business to improve profitability will continue in Germany

The car forgings business based out of Spain and Lithuania have normalized and margins in Q4CY20
are also back to pre-CoVID levels.

The aim is to sustain these margins

India Business outlook🇮🇳:-

In India, all the market segments are expected to experience good growth in the short and medium term

The order book situation is such that many verticals are going in for capacity expansion viz. foundry, magnets, gears, Bill Forge etc.

The adverse supply demand situation in the steel sector in India may result in steel price increases that could increase the price of vehicles and depress demand.

EV opportunity⚡️:-

A long-term change that the industry has to take into account is the change from Internal Combustion Engine vehicles to Electric vehicles (EV).

Shift to plug in hybrid EVs as compared to
pureplay Battery EVs (BEVs), will actually be beneficial.

EVs will mean a greater emphasis on stamped, plastic and aluminum parts compared to forged, cast or machined parts.
Being a player with a presence across different processes especially in India, is also well placed to tackle this change.

Key financial ratios remain stable:-

None of the top management takes a salary hike.

Company to conserve cash does not pay dividend.

Balance sheet remains stable with the company focusing on conserving cash


MCIE is a class company

Management has smartly navigated thru the crisis by conserving cash and restructuring to rationalize costs.

Slowly but steadily as the auto sector comes back MCIE will be a big big beneficiary of the upturn

We have been hearing about Non-Fungible tokens or NFTs a lot recently, therefore we thought let's shed some light on it!

In this thread, we will cover -

Bitcoin v/s NFTs
NFT sales


Let's go 👇
First, let’s know what fungibility is.

It refers to the ability of an asset to be exchanged or substituted with similar assets of the same value such as currency.

you can exchange 5 notes of Rs 100 for 1 note of Rs 500. The value is Rs 500 (despite being in another form)
NFTs are the opposite of that

Each one is unique and can't be substituted for something similar

Think of the Mona Lisa painting - an original piece of art. It can’t be swapped for a poster of the same painting from a gift shop because the poster doesn’t hold the same value
