    Its main clients in the hydraulic brake systems are Telco and Ashok Leyland. As the medium and heavy commercial vehicles segment saw a sharp decline in volumes in FY01 hence the company's sales have been under pressure. Its foundry division too is facing tough times as the passenger car segment too has slowed down.

    However due to pick up in commerical vehicle volumes in the 4QFY01, the company's operating margins and sales growth have showed an improvement.

    The company's operating margins declined from 10.5% in FY00 to 8.5% in FY01, due to higher raw material and staff expenses. Besides the pressure on sales growth too added to the decline in operating margins. However in the 4QFY01, operating margins showed a vast improvement due to a pick up in passenger cars as well as some improvement in commerical vehicles as well as reduction in certain operating expenses.

    On the current price of Rs 59, Sundram Clayton is trading at 6.1x FY01 EPS of Rs 9.6
