Lower US sales due to seasonality & metformin recall; India affected due to lockdown: Lupin's India sales declined 1.7% YoY (up 7.8% QoQ, 37% of revenue) due to lockdown which primarily affected its acute therapies. North America declined 21.1% YoY (down 23.0% QoQ, 35% of revenue) due to lower sales of seasonal products like oseltamivir, recall of Metformin & lower sales of Azithromycin, apart from COVID impact. EMEA de-grew 4.0% YoY (down 31.5% QoQ, 7% of revenue) while Growth Markets declined 5.8% YoY (down 3.6% QoQ, 8% of revenue). ROW declined 46.0% YoY (down 17.3% QoQ, 1% of revenue).

We reduce our FY21 EPS by 7% to factor Q1 miss but keep FY22 estimates largely intact. We increase our TP to Rs980 based on 22x FY22 EPS (from 21x earlier). Upgrade to Buy. We upgrade Lupin to Buy premised on: a) recovery in US business led by gProAir approval (imminent) and ramp up in Levothyroxine; b) bounce back in India growth (solid franchise, chronic skewed portfolio); c) operating leverage to aid margin expansion of ~500bps over FY20-22e. Management commentary was positive, indicating normalization of US business, continued cost reduction efforts as well as good progress on complex/specialty pipeline. With monetization of key assets, resolution of key facilities and margin levers in place, the business is set to post strong earnings growth of ~50% CAGR over FY20-22e.

Lupin's 1QFY21 revenue at Rs35,279mn is down 8.3% QoQ and 20.2% YoY and lower than our/consensus estimates by 6.9%/6%. US sales, which declined by 23% QoQ, led to the underperformance. EBITDA stood at Rs4,881mn, down 43% YoY. EBITDA margin (excl. other income) stood at 14% - higher by 18bps QoQ and lower by 563bps YoY. QoQ improvement in EBITDA margin was led by lower other expenses. This was partially offset by higher COVID related expenses (higher freight costs) and higher employee expenses due to restructuring of the specialty organization in the US. Net profit for the quarter stood at Rs1,069mn and was adversely impacted by higher effective tax rate (60%).

1QFY21 revenue and PAT was impacted due to decline of US biz (26% QoQ CC), India formulations (2% YoY) and higher effective tax rate of 60% v/s 25% QoQ. Sequential decline in US (Gx) was led by Metformin (extended release) recall, seasonality effect and normalization of sales as 4QFY20 had stocking benefits. While India formulations were impacted due to lockdown, we continue to remain positive on LPC and believe 1QFY21 was one-off...

Maintain Add, risks: We increase our TP to Rs920 based on 21x FY22e EPS. Key risks: delay in resolution of key plants, delay in key approvals, higher price erosion in the US, adverse outcome on drug price-fixing lawsuit in the US, escalation of NDMA issue in Metformin. Lupin reported steady revenues led by good traction in India, US and API business. While margins improved (13.7%, +228bps QoQ, lower R&D; spends) and recovered from Q3 lows, they still remain subdued and below our expectations. Lupin has been guiding towards an improving cost structure, however, benefits of those are yet to be seen. Going forward, we factor significant gains from operating leverage to aid margin expansion driven by key launches viz. gProAir, Levothyroxine ramp up and several cost containment measures (stable R&D;, lower SG&A; spends, savings on Solosec). With improving profitability and moderate capex (slightly higher than Rs5bn), we expect FCF generation of ~Rs40bn over FY20-22e. We raise our earnings by 12-18% for FY21/22 to factor slightly higher margins, lower depreciation and tax rate. Revise TP to Rs920 based on 21x FY22 EPS.

The net profit was driven by higher other income (net forex benefit of Rs1260mn), exceptional income of Rs830mn (net gains from business divestment) and lower amortization charge (lower by Rs390mn QoQ). The effective tax rate was lower at 25% vs guidance of 40%. EBITDA stood at Rs5,253mn, down almost 40% YoY.

On the business front, despite the nationwide lockdown, domestic growth is expected to remain more or less stable. Exports growth, barring for one or two months due to congestion in all major ports globally, is also expected to remain strong due to 1) currency benefit, 2) slowdown in competition due to delay in new approvals that will be beneficial for existing players and 3) expected demand continuum across the world despite Covid-19. Some windfall is also expected in some critical productsa case in point is Hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug that is likely to be repurposed as a prophylaxis for Covid-19 treatment in some cases....
