Bharat Forge - Revenue ramp-up trajectory gets stiffer - ICICI Securities

Posted On: 2020-11-18 02:05:03

Bharat Forge's (BHFC) Q2FY21 earnings were a miss on consensus estimates as EBITDA margin came in at 17.8%/12.1%, slumped 766bps/340bps for standalone/consolidated margin, respectively. Adjusted PAT (consolidated: Rs1.2bn) has been dragged down by losses in overseas subsidiaries (Rs 0.95bn PBT loss). Management indicated oil & gas, aerospace segments are facing headwinds and immediate growth revival possibilities remain low. Stock remains a good proxy play to cyclical rebound both domestically and globally in developed markets. However, we believe growth revival would likely take longer vis-a-vis consensus expectations. Taking into consideration the growth/return ratios profile of BHFC vis--vis its India-listed peers, current valuations seem steep (PE: ~47x/26x FY22/23 respectively). We maintain our REDUCE rating on the stock.

- Key highlights of the quarter: Standalone revenue declined 30% YoY to ~Rs8.8bn, while EBITDA margin declined 766bps on account of elevated employee costs (up 290bps) and other expenditures (up 855bps). Domestic revenue outperformed as it fell ~10% to Rs4bn, while exports declined ~40% to Rs4.6bn. Standalone PAT reported a profit of Rs703mn. Consolidated performance was weaker (PAT loss of Rs13mn) due to overseas losses (PBT loss of Rs 0.95bn).

- Key takeaways from earnings call: Management indicated: a) Domestic CV,PV segment saw sales of Rs0.9bn/Rs0.62bn driven by market share gains and underlying production increase; b) on exports: Class-8 truck sales is witnessing demand pickup with improved outlook; however, backlog is still below preferred levels; c) oil & gas business has dropped ~80% from peak to ~US$3-4mn and BHFC is working to utilise the existing capacity into new opportunities in renewables and marine segments (target Rs1.5bn in FY22E from current Rs0.5bn); d) renewable segment is witnessing strong demand for manufacturing aggregates i.e gear boxes also benefitted from China import restrictions; and e) long-term debt stood at Rs23bn, cash at Rs24bn and working capital at Rs13bn; the company has spent Rs2bn in H1 and expects another Rs0.5bn in H2; consolidated capex stands at Rs4.5bn in FY21 (Rs3.4bn in H1).

- Maintain REDUCE: We trim our EPS estimates for FY21E/FY22E by ~45%/1.8% on the back of delayed rebound in oil & gas and aerospace segments and continued weak performance in overseas subsidiaries. We, upgrade our valuation multiple to 26x (from 25x) for Sep'22E EPS and add Rs42/share (earlier: Rs41/share) fair value (DCF basis) of defence business (link), to arrive at a revised target price of Rs426 (earlier: Rs412). Post the recent rally (~90%), risk-reward remains unfavourable as valuations remain steep. We maintain our REDUCE rating.
