We build in Rev/EBITDA/PAT CAGR of 6/9/8% over FY20-23E and initiate coverage on the stock with an ADD recommendation & DCF-based TP of Rs. 500/sh (implying 44x Sep-22 P/E, 12% discount to APNT). Kansai Nerolac (KNPL; #1/#3 in Industrial/Decorative Paints) remains joined at the hip with Auto OEMs, which are likely to see their 2nd straight year of 16-18% volume declines (given Auto slowdown/COVID-19). Meanwhile, it has been beefing up its relatively less cyclical non-auto industrial portfolio. In Decorative, KNPL has outpaced bigger rivals over FY15-19, given its aggressive marketing & distribution push. This trend, however, is unlikely to continue over FY20-23 as KNPLs predisposition would likely be to safeguard margins/restrict A&P; spend amidst the demand destruction & until Auto recovery is in sight.

Sales revival in decorative segment post easing of restrictions After a washout April 2020 due to lockdown, KNPL saw a demand revival in decorative paint category in May-June 2020 with double digit volume growth. Strong volume traction in decorative segment was led by repainting/maintenance related demand from tier II/III/IV cities. However, industrial paint volume offtake continued to be under pressure in Q1FY21 on lower demand from key clients. While intermediary lockdowns may delay recovery process in near term, gradual unlocking of economy would help...

KNPL's industrial segment remains a drag for the company with volume degrowth of 19% in FY20. However, the company is gradually increasing its focus towards non-automotive segments (~30% of Industrial paints) such as performance & powder coatings to offset revenue loss from automotive segments. On the decorative front (volume growth of ~5% in FY20), KNPL launched the lower end of emulsions in the domestic markets, which received a good response from customers (Soldier' brand recorded ~18% growth in FY20). We believe a good performance of the non-automotive segment (with market share gains) and a gradual recovery in demand for...

KNPL 4Q Mgt commentary reinforced our positive stance on the company given 1) successful launch of soldier in economy segment in emulsions 2) foray in coil coatings, floor coatings and rebar coatings 3) strong free cash flow with cash/investments of Rs4.7bn and 4) sustained higher than industry growth in decorative segment. Although near term outlook remains uncertain due to lockdown impact on sales and sentiments, we expect smart recovery from 2HFY21 given low base in Auto and impact of J&K; from 2Q20. Although...

Our interaction with managements and dealers indicates significant prebuying activity of consumer goods during January-February 2020 on fears of supply related issues from China. While companies have secured supplies to avoid any disturbance in sales in Q4FY20, demand was negatively impacted in March 2020 owing to holiday and post that lockdown across countries. We also believe a late recovery in demand for consumer goods will also impact Q1FY21 performance due to 1) shortage of workers (due to heavy migration), 2) shift in focus on essential goods compared to discretionary products and 3) streamlining of supply chain....

KNPL recorded revenue de-growth of ~8% YoY to ~| 1248 crore, below our estimate of | 1415 crore in Q3FY20. The muted performance was mainly led by a sharp decline in volume of industrial paint (owing to ongoing slowdown in the automotive industry). In addition to this, the slowdown in decorative paint demand in Q3FY20 was mainly due to extended monsoons and a delay in recovery of demand from north regions. We believe the performance of decorative paint segment would improve from FY21 onwards supported by strong demand from tier II, tier III cities and shorter repainting demand. On...

Decorative segment grows with strong volume growth KNL has recorded strong volume growth of ~12% YoY (I-direct estimate) in the decorative paint segments, despite extended monsoon and almost nil sales in the Jammu & Kashmir regions where company has a major presence. We believe the performance of decorative segment will remain strong in FY19-21E (with volume CAGR of 13%) supported by strong demand from tier II and tier III cities and shorter repainting demand. On the industrial front, the management expects improvement in the performance...
