SSWL came out with Q4 numbers. Met the estimate of 3,500 Cr. top line

Solid 400 Cr. odd cashflow for FY22 for a company with 2,400 Cr market cap. With CV cycle looking upward trajectory going forward, and alloy wheel penetration increasing - Company seems to have a good platform to take advantage of these tail winds. Capacity addition acquisition via NCLT at a reasonable price would help. Valuations are undemanding.

@vikas_sinha - How do you read the numbers and your anticipation on business performance please



Nice summary! Thanks!

Yes, seems to be on track. Even with commodity prices shooting and logistics pressures, managed one of the best quarters in FY22. Somehow the management quality is not very inspiring, bit too boastful and then there is the unusual tax bill of the past 3 quarters. Though disclosures are very regular, even if bit pompous. Best quarters seem lined up next with valuations quite reasonable. Hopefully they plan a quick capex soon, which would kick up valuations.
