Maintain REDUCE on Nestle India - Muted 2Q; hit by supply disruptions - HDFC Securities

Posted On: 2020-08-01 21:59:23

Mr. Varun Lohchab, Head Institutional Research & Mr. Naveen Trivedi, Institutional Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

Nestle's 2QCY20 was a tad soft as the company clocked 2% YoY revenue growth. Domestic business clocked a mere 2.6% YoY growth (expectation 5%), much lower than its 11-12% consistent show in the last 8 quarters. Supply chain impact was higher for Nestle as Britannia and Marico's Saffola clocked a strong 26/16% YoY growth. Maggi, Nescafe and milk portfolio have done well at the end of the quarter. E-commerce channel was up 122% YoY (3.6% of domestic revenue) as MT continued to struggle during the quarter. OOH consumption experienced a sharp decline on account of lockdown and weak consumer sentiments. GM remained weak and contracted by 190bps YoY to 56%. Cost control initiatives expanded EBITDA margin by 130bps YoY to 25.2%. We expect supply chain related impact to normalize and pantry loading led bump up is now in the past. We maintain our EPS estimate for CY20/CY21/CY22. The stock is trading at 65x P/E on CY21 EPS and limits absolute upside in the medium term, making the risk-reward unattractive. We value Nestle at 50x P/E on Jun-22E EPS and derive a target price of Rs 14,103. Maintain REDUCE.

Weak domestic growth: Net sales grew by 2% YoY (+11% in 2QCY19 and +11% in 1QCY20) vs expectation of 4% YoY growth. Domestic sales grew by 2.6% YoY while exports declined by 9.3% YoY. Domestic volume growth of ~2% YoY (+12% in 2QCY19 and +9% in 1QCY20). July has witnessed sporadic lockdowns in certain areas which has impacted the recovery rate of discretionary categories. Consumers are still cautious about spending on non-necessities and demand for OOH will remain under pressure.

Margins in-line: Gross margin dipped by 193bps YoY (-137bps in 2QCY19 and -223bps in 1QCY20) vs expectation of a dip of 157bps YoY. Employee expenses grew by 18% YoY. However, other expenses declined by 19% YoY leading to and EBITDA margin expansion of 130bps YoY (-109bps in 2QCY19 and -146bps in 1QCY20) to 25.2%. Overall EBITDA grew by 7% YoY to Rs 7.7bn vs our expectation of Rs 7.6bn. Sharp dip in other income was offset by lower tax rate and APAT grew by 11% YoY (+11% in 2QCY19 and +10% in 1QCY20) to Rs 4.9bn.

Press release takeaways: (1) E-commerce contributed 3.6% to revenue in 2QCY20; (2) milk products, Nescafe and Maggi faced supply constraints at the start of the quarter; (3) net cash grew from Rs 12.5bn in December to Rs 19.8bn in June.

Shares of NESTLE INDIA LTD. was last trading in BSE at Rs.16546.3 as compared to the previous close of Rs. 16531.6. The total number of shares traded during the day was 9384 in over 2084 trades.
