Titan Company Ltd - Q2FY21 Result Update - YES Securities

Posted On: 2020-10-29 05:47:27

Decent revenue recovery across segments but jewellery margins under pressure; demand at risk of tapering down post festive period

- Quarter highlights - 98% recovery of jewellery business (led by higher gold prices) and 89% recovery overall (some benefit of sharp gold price hike last July); margins sharply impacted by negative operating leverage, higher share of jewellery business, lower studded share and higher coin sales; 26cr rent waivers in other income; inventory levels stable given sales of excess gold worth 391cr; 34cr provision for overdue from one broker used for hedging; Montblanc JV ended; studded share of 26% vs 38% yoy; coin share of 14% vs 3% yoy; watches recovery rate at 55%; eyewear recovery rate at 61%; Caratlane grew 10%

- Hedge accounting impact - Retail sales is 96% of normal in value terms with 74% of normal footfalls; adjusting for hedges, it would be about 86% of normal; ineffective hedging expense of 484crs (which leads to an inflation in revenue) as company sold more than expected quantity and benefitted from second gold on lease moratorium; will come off dramatically as most pre-pandemic hedging contracts are expiring by Oct-Nov.

- Current trends in 3Q - Currently running at high single-digit growth in first 10 days of festive season; Tier 2/3 towns have down much better than metro cities which have now started recovering; wedding segment has seen marginal growth given pent-up demand; studded segment demand remains sluggish; aiming for 90-100% recovery in jewellery business in 3Q and growth in 4Q; trying to maximize revenues even at slightly lower margins

- Studded/coins share - Recovered to 26% in 2Q from 18% in 1Q but still lower yoy, lower discounting than last year so no margin pressure on studded; coin sales remain strong with share at 14% vs mid single-digits normally.

- Festive sentiment - Witnessing marginal growth in the ongoing festive season but uncertainty remains as company is trying to advance Diwali/Dhanteras sales to manage crowds better.

- Store addition plans - Opened 14 stores YTD and will end up with 30-35 additional Tanishq stores in FY21 with L2 preferred mode (opening smaller stores in smaller towns); no addition in watches; 25-30 net addition expected in eyewear.

- Muted enrolment in Golden Harvest Scheme - Lower enrolment will impact sales in 1QFY22, currently back to 85% of normal levels; looking at other schemes to create demand for next year.

- Competition- Industry recovery in jewellery lower at 55-70% indicating further market share gains; gold prices currently stable.

- Watches business - Muted recovery at 55% but sentiment improving with ecommerce doing well; will look at 100% normalization by 4Q-end coupled with margin recovery; looking at growth in FY22 with stable margins.

- Eyewear business - Aggressive cost cutting initiatives have started driving turnaround with a 61% recovery rate in 2Q and positive EBIT.

- Hallmarking- Deferred to June 2021 which might be delayed further; will take time for the industry to fully comply.

- Valuation and view - The stock is currently trading at 47x FY23E earnings, which leaves little room for further upsides in the near-term. While market share gains in jewellery and margin turnaround in other divisions remains medium-term positives, near-term risk of jewellery demand trends sustaining beyond the festive season coupled with margin headwinds are key issues. We expect the stock to keep consolidating with a negative bias for now, till we get more clarity on demand trends post the festive period.
