Long term vision for Goldstone Infratech :
Here is the interview with management about their long term vision. A short and edited portion is extracted from company website.
What prompted Goldstone Group to foray into electric vehicles business?
We observed that there is a global trend in favor of electromobility. We started with the first commercial EV trial in 2016. At the same time, Government of India announced Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid and) Electric Vehicles in India (FAME India) scheme with the objective to support hybrid/electric vehicles market development and manufacturing eco-system. All these developments helped us in developing our EV business.
We expect by 2020, 20 per cent of buses plying on India roads would be electric – with 50 per cent of urban buses being electric.
In addition to e-buses, are you planning to foray into other e-vehicle segments?
We have a long-term vision for EV business. We would be venturing into other e-vehicles segments over a period of time. At present BYD is supplying chassis and battery for our e-buses. We will plan to start manufacturing chassis in India, in collaboration with BYD, by next year.
What are your growth plans (short, medium and long term) for e-vehicles business?
Over a period of three years, we will be investing about Rs 500-750 crores. We plan to sell units in three-digit numbers per annum in the short term and hit four-digit numbers in the long run. With wider acceptance of EV, cost of important components will come down making EV production more cost-effective and ushering in green mobility in the country.

Profit Loss statements:
So does it mean all is well with this company? Let’s go through it’s downside risk before considering if Goldstone infratech multibagger stock or not.
Company management is one the most important factors, one must take into account while investing in any stock.
If you zoom in management ethics there few eyebrows are raised by some experts.
- Few days back company directors were arrested on a fraud case.
- There have been cases of IT Tax department raid on company premises.
- Some says there are good links with political leaders in the state.
Everybody is optimistic about the future of Electrical Vehicles but nobody can’t guarantee how successful it will really be.
You may bet on energy and enthusiastic of current government but what happens when government changes at the center and things started slowing down?
If you look at the current infrastructure of India think tanks say it is not at all possible to achieve the optimistic target of being the first nation to become fully electric vehicle nation.
Goldstone has huge dependency on BYD. what happens if there is a rift? These are some difficult questions only time will answer.
In a nutshell I am optimistic about the future of this company mainly because of below two reasons.
- India is focusing on electric vehicles more than ever now
- Goldstone infratech ltd has tied up with BYD : world’s biggest electric vehicle maker
And in my view in long term, 5 to 10 years company has the potential to provide multibagger return to its share holders.
