TTK Prestige's 1QFY21 was weak as the company posted revenue/EBITDA decline of 52/86% YoY. The COVID-led lockdown impacted modern trade, CSD and rural revenue. However, e-commerce saw strong growth and gained salience (25% vs 12% pre-COVID). The company saw a healthy sequential recovery in June and July. TTK is a pure consumer play, and we expect most B-C categories to recover quicker in FY21. Work from home and increase in home cooking should support faster revenue recovery for TTK. EBITDA margin saw a sharp dip (>900bps YoY) due to an adverse revenue mix (gross margin down by 194bps YoY), and negative oplev (Rs 200mn idle cost). We cut FY21 EPS by 6% (miss in 1Q) while maintaining estimates for FY22/FY23. We value TTK Prestige at 35x P/E on Jun-22E EPS, maintain the target price of Rs 6,000. Maintain ADD.
Miss in revenue: Consolidated revenue declined by 52% YoY (+4% in 1QFY20 and -14% in 4QFY20), mainly as the company lost out on sales during half the quarter. We were expecting a 38% dip in revenues. Only 60% of channels were functional, which indicates that the company saw strong growth in markets that opened up. Cookers/Cookware/Appliances/Others declined 59/45/50/41% YoY. Uncertainty around Brexit coupled with COVID kept Horwood muted.
Margins under pressure: GM dipped by 194bps YoY to 40.5% (-62bps in 1QFY20 and +146bps in 4QFY20) due to an adverse product mix. Employee/Other expenses declined by 10/54% YoY. However, the company continued investing in A&P (~4% of revenue). EBITDAM dipped sharply by 918bps YoY to 3.8% (-27bps in 1QFY20 and -526bps in 4QFY20). EBITDA declined by 86% YoY to Rs 79mn. APAT declined by 89% YoY to Rs 41mn (HSIE Rs 232mn). We expect margin recovery to be quicker and favourable base will result in a healthy EBITDA growth for the remaining 9M of FY21.
Call takeaways: (1) Capacity utilisation was 80% in July; (2) Production in cookware is at 105% of normal production level; (3) Channel inventory stood at a healthy level; (4) A&P was ~4% of revenue vs 6-7% in 1QFY20; (5) 19% of products are sourced from outside vendors (including imports).
