(CMP: Rs. 170; MCap: Rs. 7300 crore)
V-Guard Industries reported a healthy performance in Q2FY21 with operations across all three segments reaching at pre-covid level.
Q2FY21 Earnings Summary
- Net sales of the company came in at Rs. 617 crore almost at a same level of Q2FY20 while it was up by 52% on a QoQ basis. Segment wise, Electronics segment (stabilizer & UPS) and Electricals segment (Pump and Wire & Cable business) which contributes 28% and 46% in topline grew by 2% each on a YoY basis to Rs. 171 crore and Rs. 282 crore respectively. Consumer durable segment (Fans, Water Heaters, Kitchen Appliances, Air Coolers) reached at ~93% of pre-Covid level amid intermediary lockdowns in its key selling markets
- The EBITDA margin came in at 12% led by savings in other expenses which were down by ~254 bps YoY. The company has focused on rationalising warranty cost, A&P spends and travelling cost
- Finally PAT came in at ~Rs. 50 crore lower by ~13% YoY dragged by higher tax rate of 30% in Q2FY21 Vs 25% in the base period
- Cashflow from operations continues to be strong (up 116% to Rs. 325 crore) on prudent working capital management
The company has witnessed sharp improvement in demand on a QoQ basis. However, the consumer durable segment witnessed a slow recovery due to supply disruption as some of the key vendors have faced covid-19 related shutdowns. Further, working capital has improved with reduced receivables and inventory days. We maintain our positive stance on the stock and a detailed report shall be released post Q2FY21 result con-call.
