Print ad revenue was down 24.3% YoY on account of economic slowdown coupled with the lockdown in the last week of March. Circulation was also affected due to supply chain disturbance. It witnessed a decline of 9.6% YoY. The ad spend from corporates has further declined in the current quarter (Q1FY21E-TD) and is minimal at 20% of pre-Covid level. Circulation is slowly regaining lost readership and is currently at 80% of normal levels. We believe the ad scenario will remain challenging in the near term and will only grow slowly if economic sentiments improve. We expect print ad revenues...

Limited earnings support amid weak operating environment: JAGP reported a dismal performance in 1QFY20, in line with other print companies, due to weak market conditions and the limited benefits of softening newsprint prices.

Print suffers due to weak government, auto segment The struggles of the print ad environment were accentuated by the weak government segment, which witnessed a decline owing to election code of conduct and further due to miniscule traction post elections. Moreover, the political segment could not compensate for the loss of revenue from government category, resulting in an overall impact of 5% on print ad. Furthermore, auto, another key category that forms 15-16% of print ad, witnessed a steep decline of 30% during the quarter. On the other hand,...

JAGP's flagship daily, the Dainik Jagran is the largest read Hindi daily. Led by a recovery in ad revenue growth and benign newsprint costs, we estimate revenue/EBITDA/ PAT to grow at a CAGR of 6/15/18% over FY19-21E. Jagran Prakashans (JAGP) 4QFY19 operating performance was ahead of estimates. This was led by 9% advertising revenue growth in print business (Dainik Jagran 12%), moderate growth in newsprint (NP) prices and other opex YoY. Maintain BUY with TP of Rs 151 (+31%) @ 12x FY21E EPS (a discount of ~25% to 3/5/10 years avg PE).

Better ad environment, softer newsprint prices to aid earnings Turnaround in earnings: Bucking the downtrend of the past several quarters, JAGP bounced back with its 4QY19 earnings. Consol. EBITDA grew 15% YoY to INR1.4b (2% beat) with 130bp margin expansion to 23.3%.

Subsequently, PAT at INR665m, grew 13% YoY (11% miss) led by EBITDA growth, partly offset by high finance cost/taxes. For FY19, revenue grew 3% while...

revenue grew a meager 3% YoY (+11% QoQ) to INR6.1b (in-line), primarily due to weak print revenues. EBITDA at INR1.3b, witnessed a steep 19% YoY decline (9% miss, mainly due to miss on revenue) impacted by 15% YoY increase in RM cost. PAT at INR666m, down 22% YoY (+58% QoQ, 15% miss), was dragged by the EBITDA decline, partly offset by higher other income. For 9MFY19, revenue/EBITDA/PAT grew 1%/-14%/-19% YoY. (1) FY20 ad growth should range between 7-8%, (2) FY20 circulation revenue should witness full impact of the cover price increase, and (3) Expect 10-11% decline in FY20 newsprint cost as benefits from 10- 20% drop in newsprint price will be partly offset by 3-4% increase in circulation copies. We largely maintain our estimates; expect consol.
