* The investment bank cites weaker-than-estimated EBITDA was on the back of higher sales expenses among other factors; calls it the fifth quarter in a row in which Exide's margins disappoint.
* BoA-ML says concerns on Exide's profit margin will drive a de-rating of the stock from its current PE ratio of 15 times.
