BFL expects to continue to post sequential improvement in coming quarters and return to previous margin levels on these cost initiatives. We build 17.4%...

BFL's segmental revenue mix at standalone level for FY20 was at ~39% CV, ~37% industrial, ~16% PV, ~8% others. The CV space domestically (~11% of sales) as well as in overseas geographies (~29% of sales) remains a laggard. In India, present run rate of retail sales for M&HCVs; trails wider industry by a large margin when compared to pre-Covid levels on account of continued demand side (muted economic activity) and supply side (system overcapacity, revised axle load norms) issues.

29 June 2020 Bharat Forges (BHFC) 4QFY20 results were hit across segments, which led to sharp erosion in EBITDA margins. While the worst is expected in 1HFY21, leading indicators point toward possible sharp recovery in FY22E. We believe BHFC will emerge stronger from this down-cycle, strengthen its position in the global supply chain and possibly benefit from the potential diversification from China. We have cut EPS for FY21/FY22E by 79%/16% to factor in the weakness in all the key industries that BHFC serves. Maintain S/A revenue/EBITDA/PAT declined ~47%/69%/99% to ~INR8.8b/INR1.5b/INR17m YoY. While tonnage declined 36% YoY, realizations dropped 18% YoY (-4% QoQ) to INR219.3k/t (v/s est. Auto segment revenues declined ~43% YoY, impacted by the decline across CVs/PVs 57%/19% in domestic and ~39%/18% in exports.

While we estimate Nil dispatches in Apr-20 led by ongoing lockdown, we expect steady production recovery only in second half of May (~20-25% utilization) and gradual recovery from June onwards. However, order back log will get converted into sales quickly once the lockdown gets lifted led by higher bookings during key festive such as Gudi Padwa (key for Western states), Chaitri Navratri (key for Central, Northern and Western states) and Puthadu (Tamil new year)....
