Given the brand equity of AFL's power brands (60% of sales), a recovery in this segment is a foregone conclusion. This coupled with multiple margin levers and an increasingly lighter expansion strategy should ensure AFL's return profile has a U-shaped recovery. (6.3% by FY22 vs -3.7% in FY20E). We remain circumspect on the value fashion play though, given AFL's lack of execution history. Valuations at <1x FY20E Power brand sales seem undemanding. While we maintain our estimates, a DCF-roll-over to FY22 leads to a marginal revision in TP to Rs. 460/sh (earlier Rs. 450), implying 11x F22 EV/EBITDA). Reiterate BUY. Near double-digit (-9.8%) top-line de-growth was par for the course for Arvind Fashion (AFL) as FY20 is all about 1. fixing working capital woes in brands biz via reducing reliance on long-credit cycle accounts (MBOs), 2. Reining in losses of the value fashion play Unlimited. 3). Non-core brand exits.
