After a mixed bag in FY19, this year was expected to be solid for revenue acceleration and recovery in margins. 1HFY20 has seen margin recovery but revenue growth was challenged due to various issues. We expect partial recovery in revenue growth in 2HFY20. We believe various disruptions (Demon, GST, Floods) over the last 2 years delayed the benefits from its non-south investment. Co had taken a hard decision last year to invest significantly on branding to grow its consumer business. We believe over the next 3 years (FY19-22E), V-Guard will be able to expand its EBITDAM by 200bps. We expect co's up-front investments on newer products to start accruing benefits. V-Guards 2Q performance was mixed with miss in revenue but beat in margins. Cables and Stabilizers were the outliers, while other products were under pressure owing to floods, short term supply issue, competition and weak macros. Adjusted EBITDA grew by robust 35% led by 39 quarter high gross margin at 33.8%. We expect a pickup in revenues in 2HFY20 and margin expansion. However, we cut EPS by 4% to factor muted south performance, slower consumer durables and higher tax rate. We value V-Guard at 35x on Sep-21 EPS, with TP of Rs 242. With limited upside, we downgrade to NEUTRAL.

V-Guard's Q1FY20 performance was largely driven by electronic and consumer durable categories, up 18% and 15% YoY, respectively.

During the period, increase in gross margin (up 200 bps) coupled with a change in product mix helped drive EBITDA margins. This resulted in strong PAT growth of ~50% YoY in Q1FY20. The period also witnessed an improvement in working capital cycle by 11 days compared to...

V-Guard is coming out of a difficult phase (floods, volatile cost inflation, up-front investments on newer products) with a strong outlook on FY20. Hot summer in 2019 is driving healthy RAC offtake, this makes us believe that stabilizer will fire (favorable base) which will drive margin expansion. Meanwhile, newer categories (GM accretive) continue to enjoy distribution expansion and drive incremental growth. Newer categories contributed 7% of revenues in FY19, we expect it to grow to 10% in FY21. V-Guards 4Q performance was healthy despite a slight miss in revenue and margins. 4Q performance was optically robust owing to a favorable base (impact from one-time ad spend). FY20 outlook is strong as we expect revenue growth to accelerate and margins to revive. We value at 35x on Mar-21 EPS, arriving at a TP of Rs 250. Maintain BUY
