Posted On: 2020-10-29 05:47:39

Improving growth outlook in international, Saffola and Parachute, margin headwinds temporary; stock at 33x poised for a re-rating

- Quarter highlights- 9% revenue growth, 11% domestic volume growth, 7% growth in international business, margins up 30bps despite 160bps GM decline due to cost saving initiatives and lower A&P Spends driving PAT growth of 15%, 95% portfolio back to positive growth, rural growth higher than urban, E-commerce strong while MT and CSD remain subdued, strong volume growth trends with Parachute (10%), VAHO (4%), Saffola (20%) and foods saw 55% value growth, multiple launches in immunity segment, hygiene portfolio contribution at 1.5% now cooling off, international growth led by 16% growth in Bangladesh.

- Outlook - Confident of delivering 8-10% volume growth for 2HFY21, medium-term volume growth target of 5-7% in Parachute, VAHO growth to pick up in 2H from 4% in in 2Q, corrective measures in Saffola should help sustain high single-digit volume growth, foods to reach 450-500cr revenue in FY22, near-term muted outlook for premium personal care but medium term target of double-digit growth remains. Overall medium term target of 8-10% volume growth and 13-15% revenue growth, target 150cr cost savings in FY21, margins to be above 20% for FY21 and above 19% in medium term.

- Gross margin outlook - Increase in input costs (especially copra up 10%) not passed on to drive share gains given expectation of some downtrading; expect input costs to start softening from January; cost measures till then will offset the impact.

- Saffola - 62% of growth attributed to increased penetration on account of new users and increased retention which should help sustain strong growth going forward; market share moving up given higher promotions, strong brand equity and reasonable pricing.

- Coconut oil vs Value added hair oils - Parachute witnessing much better trends given lower rural share and gains from unbranded, VAHO dynamics different, premium part is impacted more by COVID restrictions and competition is more intense.

- Channel inventory - Currently at lowest level of distributor inventory in last 3-4 years to help enhance distributor ROIs; reduced number of SKUs and improved fill rates.

- Saffola brand equity in organic and immunity portfolio - Leveraging strong equity in health segment, Saffola will remain master brand for honey and oats, will create new sub-brand for ayurvedic products.

- E-commerce channel outlook - Has reached 8% given acceleration due to COVID; digital adoption from consumer is rapidly increasing both for selecting and buying; will launch a few more digital-only brands like Beardo; GT channel also undergoing transformation.

- International business - Doing really well in Bangladesh led by aggressive portfolio diversification; will try and replicate the same model now in Vietnam which should start showing results in 4Q; both high-growth markets.

- Marketing spends - 1Q was all about availability where spends were held back; took conscious decision to increase promotions and A&P spends in 2Q.

- Cost savings program - Focused on structural savings rather than temporary measures; should deliver 150cr plus in FY21

- Valuation and view - The stock is currently trading at 33x FY23E earnings and given a quicker than expected recovery in the hair oil portfolio, deserves some amount of re-rating in our view. Margin headwinds should abate from January, which in addition to strong growth in foods, Saffola and international markets should support a solid growth trajectory for next 2-3 years.
