Sharp cost focus expected to pay dividends Despite soft revenue performance during the quarter (~20% capacity utilisation), BFL nearly managed EBITDA breakeven in standalone and consolidated operations. Its focus on reducing breakeven levels by downsizing costs, enhancing efficiencies while simultaneously controlling capex spends is seen leading to improvement in margin trajectory. 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.

We interacted with several automobile industry participants such as key management, experts and channel partners. 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)....

CV dependence on the wane; outlook still soft BFL recognised its CV dependence early and over the years worked proactively towards de-risking the business by effective diversification away from the space in terms of segments and geographies. To illustrate, share of industrials in standalone revenues rose from 32% in FY09 to 44% in FY19 vs. equivalent 12% mix reduction for CVs. Demand scenario for CVs remains challenging at present in India (BS-VI transition, system overcapacity, slowing economic activity, high installed base) as well as in North America...
