30. Ramky Infrastructure


The Hyderabad-based company gets over half of its revenues from building roads and bridges. It is also into waste water and water management, and development of commercial and residential real estate. The slowdown in order flow is a concern as the company managed to garner only 950 crore in the nine months ended December 2012 compared with the ₹5,800 crore it managed to book in FY12. Despite this, its order-book stands at 12,500 crore, which is 3.8 times its 12-month trailing revenues. The company, though, needs to keep a lid on costs, which have begun to eat into profitability.

 

29. Munjal Auto Inds

Munjal Auto primarily supplies exhaust systems and mufflers to group company Hero Motocorp and manufactures fuel tanks for four-wheelers, primarily Tata Nano. Mufflers contribute over 80% of revenue, with wheel rims, fuel tanks and other components making up the balance. Already, 97% of the company’s revenue comes from Hero and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. Given that Hero’s sales have been stagnating (1% growth in FY13) and with the management indicating another weak year in FY14, the outlook for the auto ancillary company is far
