It has the best positioned portfolio, with HF Deluxe in the Economy segment, Splendor in Executive 100cc, and Super Splendor / Glamour in Executive 125cc, covering all the price points with multiple variants. With an apt product portfolio for the rural market, the highest brand value, and a strong distribution network, Hero is best placed to benefit from low penetration and ongoing momentum in the rural economy. HMCLs market share in Executive 100cc was at ~87% in FY20 (v/s 84% in FY19), and with the launch of the new Passion, it has gained further market share to 90% in FY21YTD. HMCLs market share declined by 700bp to ~51% in FY20 in the 125cc segment post the launch of the Bajaj Pulsar 125. However, post the launch of the new Super Splendor and Glamour, it regained market share by 225bps FY21YTD.

Hero MotoCorp- 1QFY21 Result Update- Personal mobility and rural recovery remain structural positives
Nirmal Bang Institutional
Hero MotoCorp (Hero) reported better-than-expected 1QFY21 net profit of Rs613mn, down 88% YoY, driven by better operating performance and lower tax expense. Reported EBITDA margin declined by 1080bps YoY to 3.6%. Lockdown period cost was Rs2.5bn. Adjusting for this, EBITDA margin was ~12%. Cash flow generated during 1QFY21 stood at over Rs10bn. As per the management, shift away from public transport and shared mobility towards personal mobility, strong recovery in rural and semi-urban markets and very good feedback on BS-VI products will be the key drivers of demand going forward. Leading indicators like eway bills and GST collections have reached ~85% of pre-covid level. Fertilizers & Tractor sales and kharif sowing data indicate strong rural recovery. Demand recovery, which started in June, hasn't seen a decline in July or August, which indicates that it is not just pent-up demand. Demand from bigger cities is still well...

Hero has gained market share in the quarter, led by rising demand in rural/semi-urban markets and ramp-up in production. The OEM's foray into the premium segment has got off to an encouraging start, and it is targeting double-digit market share in it. We reiterate BUY (please see our recent note: 'Xtreme'...

14 August 2020 HMCL has posted a notable operating performance in these tough times. The narrative around rural demand is positive, but supply chain ramp-up and broad-base demand are important for demand sustainability. We upgrade our EPS estimate by 9% for FY21 to factor faster volume recovery. But, we maintain our Neutral rating, with TP of INR3,045 (~16x Sep22 S/A EPS + INR98/share for Hero FinCorp). Revenues fell 63% YoY to ~INR29.7b on a ~69% YoY decline (-58% QoQ) in volumes. Realizations increased 21% YoY (+12.8% QoQ) to INR52.7k (v/s est. of INR48.9k), driven by BS6-related price increases and no discounts. didnt load contribution margins on the BS6 cost pass-through.

HMCL remains our preferred play in autos on domestic demand revival led by increasing preference towards personal mobility due to safety needs and pick up in rural volume. Strong product portfolio in entry and executive segments with more than 60% shares, deep rural/semirural network reach (rural contributes to 50% volume), and strong supply chain management are key positives. We recognize the company's efforts to increase its overall market share (+500bps YoY to 41.6%) in 2W space. The company preempted pent-up demand after lockdown and readies operations to meet the same. As supply situation is much better compared to its...

We have set a revised target price of Rs 3,100 at 19x Jun-22E EPS (at a 15% premium to its long-term average trading multiple, earlier 17x) to factor in improving capabilities at Hero. We believe that Hero's strategic initiatives would yield benefits in the medium term as: (1) The OEM is aggressively expanding in the premium segment, with the launch of the Xtreme 160cc. We expect Hero to gain 10% market share in this segment (negligible share currently); (2) The company has been scaling up its NBFC arm, which now funds ~15% of its 2Ws. This scale-up enhances finance availability through cycles; (3) The management is investing in new technologies (EVs/ride-sharing), which would make it ready for any future transition. We believe that Hero would gain an additional 150-200bps in market share (52% currently) in the motorbike segment with its initiatives, thus sustaining its market leadership. Further, the enhanced government focus on agriculture reforms would support demand as Hero derives ~50% sales from this segment.

FY2020 was a challenging year for the two-wheeler (2W) industry, with volumes dropping by 18% y-o-y, impacted by increased cost of ownership, NBFC liquidity crisis, and lack of income growth. While the industry is facing short-term challenges on account of COVID-19, long-term growth factors are intact. Moreover, Hero MotoCorp (Hero) expects industry demand to recover as early as H2FY2021, driven by buoyancy in rural sentiments, pent-up demand, and preference for personal transport to ensure safety in post-COVID era.

Hero MotoCorp (HMCL) Q4FY20 EBITDA margin was lower than our and consensus estimates. EBITDA margin for the quarter stood at 10.6% vs our and consensus estimates of 12.2% and 11.6% respectively due to one-offs. We expect 2W industry to see a double digit decline in FY21 primarily driven by adverse impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on economic growth and discretionary spending. The challenges for the 2W segment are likely to get aggravated as consumer spending will be severely impacted by the outbreak resulting in lower spending power both in urban and rural markets. We believe HMCL being a major player in commuter segment could see muted sales. We...
