Sona Comstar is a well known name in India for manufacturing of automotive components. However the financials of the comparison are not that interesting in the last 2 years. The main reason is low profit generation despite the increased asset base. The company has increased its asset base every year, yet the profit generation is negative. The revenue is increasing at a steady pace but not up to the mark of the company’s potential. This could be the outcome of COVID situation as the company’s business is spread across 4 countries equally. However the company has great potential due to the upcoming wave of electric vehicles in India and across the world. Hence for a long term perspective one can consider Sona Comstar. However the major stakes lie in its future profit generation capabilities.


  • Diversified range of Products available
  • The company has high growth potential given the future of electric vehicles in India. The electric cars have started paving Indian roads and the company has an edge in that segment already. This could give great returns to investors in the next 10 years of span.
  • Sona Comstar has in house R&D Facilities. It also has manufacturing in India as well as in the countries where it exports its products.


  • Major shareholding dilution from the promoters in the IPO procedure.
  • Low Profit generation by the company given its asset capacity and production facilities.
  • High amount of debts and interest payments.
