MoneyWorks4me Opinion on Sansera Engineering

How is the business model? Great, good, or gruesome?

The auto ancillary business is gruesome. It earns a marginal return on capital employed and exhibits no bargaining power over customers. In good times ancillary businesses earn from cyclical growth but in bad times, they may get squeezed by high working capital.

The auto and auto ancillary sector is currently going slow down due to series of lockdowns. OEMs are facing severe shortages in raw materials, particularly semiconductors. This will lead to poor growth in the medium term.

Besides, the automobile landscape is changing fast as the industry will shift to new technology which will bring growth of existing products down. We will be interested in stocks that will benefit from electric vehicles; however, we are yet to see meaningful contributions from EVs in any ancillary company.

We find Sansera Engineering’s prospects are difficult to assess and hence avoidable.

We recommend Avoid. Also, we recommend avoiding listing gains.

Note: We do not recommend buy just because the IPO market is hot. We do not earn any commission or fee for promoting IPOs so expect an honest review from us on the business model and valuation.
