Domestic auto industry volumes have been on a steady mend in the months post lifting of lockdown restrictions. Manufacturing and distribution activities have been getting ramped up gradually since June 2020, in step with the rest of the economy. However, the impact of the pandemic on the supply chain continues to inhibit a complete return to production normalcy.

HSIE Results Daily: Berger Paints, Voltas, Ashok Leyland, Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail, Vinati Organics, Sonata ...
Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail: ABFRL's 2Q performance recovery lagged that of peers (ex-department chains) as both anchors Madura and Pantaloons limped their way back to recovery. Margin delivery improved and was better than expected (0.2% vs HSIE: -14%) but still in the red (pre-IND-AS116) as management continued its tight leash on costs. Net debt/equity has remained elevated since Mar-20 as the retailer had to soothe vendor nerves (reduction in payables). We have built in the recent Rs. 15bn fundraise from Flipkart + Rights issue proceeds in our forecasts and maintain our REDUCE recommendation with a DCF-based target price of Rs. 140/sh, implying 12x Sept-22 EV/EBITDA (Post IND-AS). Vinati Organics: Our SELL recommendation on Vinati Organics with a discounted cash flow-based target price of INR 925 (WACC 10%, terminal growth 3%) is driven by (1) demand slowdown for the high-margin 2-Acrylamido 2-Methylapropane Sulphonic Acid (ATBS) that contributed ~60% to its revenue mix in FY20, (2) shift in revenue mix towards lower-margin Iso Butyl Benzene (IBB), which formed ~25% of the mix in 2Q versus 16% in FY20, and (3) slow ramp-up in the recently-commissioned Butyl Phenol product line (still below 5%). In the absence of a new product pipeline, we believe current valuations are high at ~34x Sept-22E EPS. 2Q EBITDA/PAT were 17/24% below estimates owing to a 12% decline in revenue courtesy lower volumes for ATBS. Sonata Software: We maintain BUY on Sonata based on robust recovery and better operating performance. IT Services (IITS) revenue grew 6.8% QoQ (estimate 3%) and margin expanded 126bps QoQ...
