Nestle India - Capex announcement (Rs26bn over CY20-23) is the highlight - ICICI Securities

Posted On: 2020-10-25 23:47:49

Domestic revenue grew 10% in Q3CY20 (with ~7% volume growth (our view)), with double-digit growth in culinary (Maggi), chocolates (a positive surprise), coffee (as expected). Nestle seems to be in the sweet spot - (1) structural tailwind from increasing consumer propensity to consume packaged foods, (2) key input remaining stable and (3) significant increase in capex (Rs26 bn planned over CY20-23 which is = cumulative capex of CY12-19). Our long-term positive view is intact; however, our primary research (link) indicates likely lower birth rates in CY21, a potential headwind for its infant nutrition business in CY21. HOLD retained.

- Revenue momentum returns with improvement in supply situation: Revenue / EBITDA grew 10% / 16% YoY while recurring PAT declined 1% (due to lower tax rate in the base quarter). Domestic sales growth of 10% - we estimate ~7% volume growth. This strong performance was driven by improvement in supply situation and double-digit growth in brands - MAGGI Noodles, MAGGI Sauces, KITKAT, Nestlé MUNCH, NESCAFÉ CLASSIC & NESCAFÉ SUNRISE due to increased in-home consumption. Further, demand of out-of-home channels improved sequentially but continues to be impacted. Export sales returned to the growth trajectory (+9% YoY). E-commerce grew by 97% and contributes ~4% of domestic revenues.

- Margin expanded due to input cost deflation: Gross margin expanded 60bps to 57.9% driven by milk and milk derivatives price deflation (constitutes 51% of Nestlé's total COGS). Other expenses declined 130bps while staff cost was up 50bps. This translated into 130bps improvement in EBITDA margin, EBITDA grew 16% YoY. PBT grew 13% due to lower other income (down 30% YoY from lower yields and cash reserves post payment of special dividend in Aug'19).

- Capex announcement: Nestlé plans to invest Rs26bn over next 3-4 years towards construction of a state of art factory in Sanand, Gujarat and other facilities. A noodle factory is western India will potentially help it improve market shares (it has relatively weaker position in western India).

- Dairy prices to be deflationary for rest of CY20, likely into CY21: We note that milk procurement prices have declined 20% in April due to lower demand. We believe dairy prices are likely to be deflationary for the rest of CY20 and in 1HCY21, which together with price hikes of 3-4% in infant nutrition and 5% in Everyday dairy whitener in Dec'19 could improve margins (estimate +120bps margin expansion in CY20).

- Valuation and risks: We upgrade our earnings estimates by ~2%; modelling revenue / EBITDA / PAT CAGR of 12 / 17 / 15 (%) over CY19-21E. Maintain HOLD rating with DCF-based target price unchanged at Rs16,500. Key risks are consumption slowdown linked to economic performance and keyman risk.
