    AMBER ENTERPRISES LTD (AEL) PRICE RS.856 TARGET RS.1070 BUY

    AEL reported weak set of numbers as above-normal inventory of room ACs in the industry led to brands curtailing their procurement plans from the company.

    Key Highlights

    Weak revenue due to excess inventory in the distribution/manufacturer end

    In a seasonally weak quarter, EBITDA margin declined due to under-absorption of fixed costs

    The management believes that demand conditions are improving and hence it is possible for the company to meet its original guidance.

    Valuation and Outlook

    In terms of valuation, the stock is trading at 27x and 18x FY19 and FY20 earnings. We see the company as a very good play on India’s fast-growing RAC industry. AEL enjoys the highest two year earnings cagr among peer group. ROCE has been moderate due to capex in past years in building capacities, which are yet to be optimally utilized. With sustained demand trends and modest capex, we see asset turnover to rise in coming years leading to enhanced ROE/ROCE. We value the stock at 23x Consol EPS of FY20E, 10% discount to our target multiple of 26x ascribed to Blue Star, and arrive at a target price of Rs 1070 (Rs 1150 earlier).

    Result Highlights

    Weak revenue due to excess inventory in the distribution/manufacturer end

    AEL reported revenues of Rs 2.3 bn in Q2FY19, down 15% on a yoy basis. Reasons for weak revenue was attributed to 1) Weak demand conditions in Q2FY19 and 2) The room AC market contracted by ~ 10-12% in Q1FY19, which led to above-normal inventory in the system in Q2FY19. As a result, brands/retailers curtailed their procurement plans and instead focused on liquidating the excess inventory.

    In a seasonally weak quarter, EBITDA margin declined due to under-absorption of fixed costs

    Gross margins for the quarter declined to 17.8% as compared to 18.3% in the corresponding quarter of the previous fiscal.

    Decline in EBITDA margins was higher at 440 bps as decline in revenue led to adverse operating cost leverage.

    Subsidiary/Associate company performance in H1FY19

    Revenue at its subsidiaries was muted in line with the weak demand conditions for room ACs.

    On the positive side, two customers of AEL have extended their relationship to EL GIN as well.

    Decline in cash coupled with increase in borrowings

    AEL reported decline in cash in H1FY19, which now stands at Rs 282 mn as compared to Rs 1.2 bn at the end of FY18.

    Gross borrowings also rose to Rs 736 mn in H1FY19 as compared to Rs 405 mn at the end of FY18.

    The management attributed the decrease in cash and equivalents to capex of Rs 300 mn and higher working capital engagement. Apart from this, the management indicated that the drawdown of cash in first half is seasonal due to weak seasonal demand leading to lower customer advances. The cash situation should turn favourable by the end of FY19, the management indicated.

    NOVEMBER 5, 2018

    Management guidance

    The management retains the guidance of increasing RAC unit production from 1.9mn units in FY18 to 2.2-2.3mn units in FY19, implying a significant strong 2HFY19.

    The management believes that demand conditions are improving and hence it is possible for the company to meet its original guidance.

    With new customer additions, increase in wallet share of existing customer, product expansion and increasing sales trend in Ac & Non AC Components the management expects margins to improve in the latter half of the year.

    Customs duty hike on room ACs

    With a view to promote domestic manufacturing, the government recently hiked custom duty from 10% to 20% on Air Conditioners.

    Increase in custom duty will increase procurement of ACs from within India. This is positive for AEL. However, some brands were importing only the indoor units (IDUs) instead of the complete AC unit. There are differential duties on imports of complete units and that of only the IDUs. Given this, we are not clear on how positive the import duty hike is for AEL. The management however believes that it is well placed in terms of costs and manufacturing to provide a comparable offering on IDUs vis-a-vis imports.

    Conference call highlights

    Notwithstanding the intermittent blips in room AC demand due to weather patterns, AEL remains bullish given low penetration and shortening replacement cycle of the product.

    Despite the headwinds from the industry in the first half of the year, AEL is optimistic that the demand momentum will pick up in the second half on the back of the festive season.

    AKSHARCHEM (INDIA) LTD PRICE RS.460 TARGET RS.485 REDUCE

    AksharChem Q2FY19 operating performance was above estimates, driven by better than expected realisation. However, due to Rs16mn loss in other income, PAT came in at Rs74mn, below estimates. Management expects benefit of H-Acid and CPC Green expansion to start flowing in from Q4FY19 onwards.

    Key Highlights

    Revenue during the quarter grew 30% YoY and 13.1% QoQ to Rs853mn, driven by strong volume growth. Volume in Q2FY19 stood at 2,254 tonnes, up 4.3% YoY (down 2.4% QoQ). The YoY growth in volume was supported by higher capacity. Total installed capacity at the end of 1HFY18 stands at 11,400 tonnes.

    The capex plan is on track, 480 tonnes of CPC Green capacity is completed and is expected to come on stream in the coming quarter and 1,200 tonnes of H-Acid commercial production will begin from 4QFY19. The benefit of the same would start to accrue from Q4FY19 onwards. 3QFY19, volume will largely remain flat.

    Valuation & outlook The completion of capex plan, will transform AksharChem business to more stable earnings from FY20E onwards. However, in the near term till the new unit get stabilized and the company is able to pass on the rise in input costs, we believe that the earnings are likely to remain under pressure. We believe, given the supply disruption in China (environmental concern), should keep the final product prices firm over the medium term. However, in the near term, due to decline in intermediate realisation (seasonal factor) margin will remain under pressure. The volatility in the raw material prices, will be the key variable to monitor. The stock has corrected further, since our last update dated 14th Aug (Reduce). At CMP, the stock is trading at 10.8x/10.1X FY19E/FY20E which in our view is fairly valued and offers a limited upside. Hence, we recommend REDUCE with a revised target price of Rs485 (earlier Rs533), valuing it at 11x (earlier 12x), as benefit of new capacity will take some more time.

    Higher realisation supported EBITDA margin

    Overall revenue mix during the quarter continues to remain in the favour of Dye intermediates with a contribution of 69%, Pigment contribution stood at 31%. Given the uptick in the Dye intermediate prices in 2QFY19, operating performance during the quarter grew 39.8% and 83% YoY and QoQ, respectively to Rs156mn, with an EBITDA margin of 18.3%.

    We believe, EBITDA margin will remain under pressure in the 2HFY19, as raw material prices get passed on with a 3-6 months lag effect. Besides this, the decline in intermediates realisation will also weigh on operating performance. Vinyl Sulphone realisation declined to Rs275/kg currently from Rs326/kg in 2QFY19. Pigment prices are stable, but the benefit of an increase in pigment contribution would start flowing in from Q4FY19 onwards. Though, we feel that higher contribution from pigment will strengthen the margin in FY20E, but due to delays in approval for Violet pigment, commercial production of CPC and increase in raw material prices, we expect EBITDA margin to remain at 16% for FY19E and FY20E.

    The management expects the EBITDA margin will be ~15% in 2HFY19, lower than 18.3% in 2QFY19 as higher raw material prices and a decline in realisation, will suppressed operating performance.

    Recommend Reduce

    Expansion into CPC green and commercial operation of H-Acid, would help the company to report improvement in EBITDA margin, but benefit of the same will get offset by increase in raw material cost, in our view. We expect EBITDA margin of 16% both in FY19E and FY20E, supported by stable business (Upside Risk: Higher than expected volume of CPC Green in FY20 and Precipitated Silica, can result in better than expected margin). At CMP, the stock is trading at 10.8x/10.1X FY19E/FY20E, which in our view is fairly valued and offers a limited upside. Hence, we recommend REDUCE with a revised target price of Rs485 (earlier Rs533).

    Q2FY19 revenue grew by 11.6%, better than estimates

    Consolidated Net Sales (including discontinued operation of branded apparel & engineering) grew by 11.6% to Rs 30.5 bn as compared to our expectation of Rs 28.6 bn, driven by 6% yoy growth in textiles segment, 21% yoy growth in advance material business segment, 9% yoy growth in branded apparel (13% on like to like basis, adjusted for Ind AS changes) and 2% in engineering segment and 161% in others segment. Textiles business grew at slower 6% yoy rate led by decline in denim volume while garments segment grew by 15% on yoy basis. Decline in denim business is due to lower consumer demand faced by its customers in the quarter led by high base of last year due to festive season. Further, the industry is facing over supply, aggression in pricing and higher credit offered by some of the peers (who have surplus capacity) which impacted the volumes in the segment.

    Branded apparel business remained strong

    Branded apparel business grew by 13% yoy on like to like basis to Rs 11.6 bn (Vs reported Rs 12.3 bn). The segmental reported revenue for the quarter stated higher due to IndAS and GST related adjustment. Adjusted EBITDA for the segment grew by 21% to Rs 760 mn. Power brands for the quarter grew at 13% yoy, Unlimited grew by 4% and other brands grew by 20%. In the quarter, the growth in branded apparel business was impacted due to shift in festival season to Q3 from Q2 in last year. As per management, LTL (like to like) was double digit in July, with tepid August and negative LTL in September 2018. The growth in branded apparel business is expected to be strong in H2FY19 particularly in Q3FY19 due to major festivals in the month of October and November 2018. Growth in unlimited is expected to pickup in coming quarter as the company is focusing on increasing sales after rolling out stores aggressively in the previous quarters. The company expects 12% LTL growth in 5 week of festival season as LTL has improved in Dusshera.

The company has maintained its guidance of 100bps improvement in margins in branded apparel segment with its brands turning profitable or breaking even at operating level, except GAP which is reporting losses.

    The margins in the textiles segment declined by 70 bps yoy on account of lower drawback rate, decline in volume of denim segment and lower margins in Euthopia due to low price currency hedge.

    GREAVES COTTON LTD PRICE RS.120 TARGET RS.146 BUY

    Greaves Cotton (GCL) reported good numbers, which were a tad ahead of our estimates. A notable highlight is that this was the highest profit growth in last seven quarters.

    Key Highlights

    After three quarters of double digit growth, revenue slackened in Q2FY19. The management indicated that OEMs slowed down procurement of engines from the company due to excess inventory.

    EBITDA margins largely stable despite commodity cost pressures

    Valuation and Outlook

    The company’s largest revenue segment (ie three-wheeler engines business) has been going through a prolonged phase of slowdown due to 1) Shift from diesel to CNG engines and 2) Emergence of electric vehicles. GCL is responding to this challenge by positioning itself as a fuel-agnostic engine maker including electric mobility.

    GCL is currently trading at 13.5x and 12.4x FY19 and FY20 earnings respectively, which is attractive compared to peers in the capital goods and manufacturing sector. However, considering the moderate growth profile of the business, we are according it a lower target PE. We now value the stock at 15x FY20E (earlier 16x FY20E), thus arriving at a price target of Rs 146 (Rs 165 earlier). However, due to good upside, we upgrade the stock to BUY.

    Result Highlights

    Revenue growth showing signs of upturn

    The company reported 9.4% y-o-y growth in revenue, aided by modest growth in engine volumes and accompanied by 3-4% price hikes.

    This was the highest quarterly revenue since FY2014. This indicates that although the company is not growing at a robust pace but there is a definite recovery after years of stagnation.

    The company’s revenue mix comprises of automotive engines for 3W and 4W Light commercial vehicles (~70%), DG sets (15%) and Agriculture products (15%).

    In terms of product mix, engines/spares/others accounted for 50%/25%/25% of revenues in Q2FY19.

    The company had been posting tepid/contraction in revenue in the past several quarters mainly due to stagnation in domestic three-wheeler market.

    However, in recent quarters, there has been definite signs of upturn in demand for 3W. This product segment is bouncing back from the twin effects of demonetization and GST implementation. In the second quarter, the company indicated that there was surplus inventory with the OEMs, consequently, there was some reduction in engine procurement from Greaves’ clients.

    The demand for 3W has a correlation with the Commercial Vehicles (CV) segment due to the need for last mile connectivity. In recent months, the monthly volumes of CVs has shown a strong upturn, which has started to reflect on the demand for 3W.

    Engine volumes

    EBITDA margins largely stable despite commodity cost pressures

    EBITDA margins contracted by 50 bps on a y-o-y basis to 14.8%, mainly due to 4% y-o-y increase in commodity cost inflation.

    Although the company had taken price hikes of 3-4% in Q2FY19 to accommodate the commodity price inflation, it has not been able to completely offset the cost increase.

    Efficient currency hedging and value engineering also helped the company contain the decline in margins.

    PAT before exceptional items rose 15% y-o-y

    PAT before exceptional items rose 15% on a y-o-y basis led by moderate growth in revenues but partly offset by minor contraction in margins.

    The notable thing is that this is the highest profit growth achieved by the company in the past eight quarters.

    Fuel mix shifting towards CNG engines from diesel/petrol engines:

    In the Automotive Engine segment, the Company provides fuel agnostic powertrain solutions to three-wheeled passenger and cargo vehicles and four-wheeled mini-trucks.

    The company has a 75% market share in the 3-wheeler Diesel engines market. While earlier, diesel engines were the preferred mode for last mile connectivity, stricter environmental norms is driving sales of CNG engines even as the share of diesel engines have been reducing in recent years. In urban markets, replacement demand has been an important growth driver wherein improving network of CNG fuel stations is driving replacement of older petrol or diesel powered 3Ws with ones based on CNG. In FY18, around 50% of the three wheeler sales were of CNG engines.

    As the Government has set April 2020 deadline for the implementation of BS-VI norms, demand for conventional 3W diesel engines is likely to be affected in the future, the management opines.

    GCL’s weak product positioning in CNG 3W engines has led to underperformance in the 3W sales growth

    GCL’s focus as well as its forte has been on light diesel engines (75% market share in light diesel engines), which is also aligned with the positioning of its prime client Piaggio Vehicles (PVPL), who is a leader in the 3W cargo segment. In Cargo, diesel engines are better suited than their CNG counterparts on account of higher load carrying capacity and lack of CNG pump infrastructure in rural/semi rural areas. Given the focus of GCL on diesel engine segment, it appears that the company has been late in having a strong product in the CNG engine space.

    GCL currently has a larger engine (400 cc) in CNG 3W market which is mainly being used in the 5+1 passenger 3W segment. However, the major market for passenger 3W is in the 2+1 category where a smaller engine (200-230 cc) is fitted. GCL has been largely missing in this segment and even its existing diesel engine customers like Atul/Piaggio are not fully sourcing CNG engines from the company.

    With a view to address the weakness on CNG engine, GCL is offering the Pinnacle engine

  • Kotak Securities – Private Client Research Please see the Disclosure/Disclaimer on the last page For Private Circulation 21

    NOVEMBER 5, 2018

    GCL has entered into technical collaboration with Pinnacle Engines for CNG and Petrol segments. The Pinnacle engine are BS-VI compliant and come with revolutionary piston technology that offers 25-30% fuel efficiency over the conventional ones.

    Brief on Pinnacle Engines - Pinnacle Engines Inc manufactures and sells combustion engines and controllers for automotive, motorcycle, marine, and power sports industries, as well as industrial and commercial markets in the United States and internationally. The engine is based around an opposed piston design. In most engines, a cylinder contains a single piston. In these engines, two pistons face each other from opposite ends of the same cylinder. The change effectively gives these engines a dynamic, more efficient compression chamber for burning fuel.

    However, success depends on the outcome of the simulation tests

    Greaves Cotton Limited had entered into an agreement with Pinnacle Engines, Inc. for the purpose of grant of licenses to the company for manufacture and sale of internal combustion engines. Size of agreement: USD 7.5 million linked payment plus 5% Royalty to Pinnacle. The advantage with tying up with Pinnacle is that it significantly reduces the “Go to Market” time for GCL, if it had decided to develop its own CNG engine.

    The Pinnacle engine would be in the 200-250 cc range, which will be suitable for the 2+1 passenger 3W segment.

    The company will start making prototypes in the coming days and simulation tests will be completed by Dec 2018. If the simulation results are successful, then the company can look forward to outsourcing deals from 3W makers.

    What can possibly go wrong?

    Although the Pinnacle engine comes with a strong technology platform, there are two factors that need to be watched out

    1) While the engine offers 25-30% fuel efficiency, the ultimate cost of engine needs to be competitive for the customer as there are royalty payments to be made. Having said that, the GCL management is convinced about the value proposition.

    2) The Pinnacle engine has not been commercially produced anywhere in the world hence does not have a performance track record.

    Conference call highlights

    Greaves Cotton recently announced that they have entered into definitive agreements as per which it will acquire a majority stake in Electric Vehicle manufacturer - Ampere Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. Ampere is one of the leading brands in the last mile mobility electric vehicles segment. It has strong in-house capabilities in designing, developing, manufacturing & marketing electric vehicles with a wide range of applications. Through this acquisition, Ampere can benefit from Greaves’ distribution, aftermarket and service strengths to grow more rapidly. The company completed acquisition of majority stake in Oct 2018. The financial numbers of Ampere will be shared in the future investor interactions.

    The company’s after market (spares) business accounted for around ~ 25% of revenues (including spares for Auto, DG sets and Farm). Apart from the ongoing aftermarket sales (including Auto, DG and Farm) through the company’s distribution outlets, GCL has also forayed into sale of multibrand spares through “Greaves care” outlets. It works on a franchise based model

    NOVEMBER 5, 2018

    as per which Greaves Cotton collects fee from the franchisee. In addition to this, Greaves benefits from manufacturing of spare parts sold through Greaves Care.

    The company share in the addressable market in DG sets has increased by 0.5% to 6%. It has recently launched 500 kva engine in the DG set market.

    The company continues to be debt free and had cash and equivalents of Rs 4.4 bn at the end of Q2FY19 (15% of market cap).

    In the current fiscal, the company has planned for capex of Rs 1.0 bn, which will be mainly for meeting R&D/product development expenses for BS VI compliant engine.

    The company expects employee costs to rise 6% in the current fiscal.

    Valuation and Target price

    GCL is currently trading at 13.5x and 12.4x FY19 and FY20 earnings respectively, which is attractive compared to peers in the capital goods and manufacturing sector stocks. However, considering the moderate growth profile of the business, we are according it a lower target PE. We now value the stock at 15x FY20E (earlier 16x FY20E), thus arriving at a price target of Rs 146 (Rs 165 earlier). We upgrade the stock to BUY.
