Moreover, the report also added that exports and electric vehicle verticle can drive valuation re-rating.

On exports, BofA said it has turned a corner, suggesting that the worst is over and things shall begin to improve. August’s export figures are a case in point after Bajaj reported a two percent growth to 1,24,211 units.

Given such factors, the broking firm predicts that the Pune-headquartered company should see a revenue compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14-15 percent from FY23-26.
