YES Securities' research report on V‐Guard Industries


VGRD reported better than expected revenue growth of 23.7% beating estimates for 3rd consecutive quarter. The growth was driven by a strong performance in consumer durables and electrical segments which grew 32.3% and 32.5% respectively. The company has now started to deliver on the margin front as well despite continued commodity price inflation. The company is confident of growth momentum continuing in Q1FY23 onwards and on margin front, they expect to achieve double‐digit EBITDA margins assuming the worst of commodity inflation is behind them. Current high levels of inventory are also likely to get normalized by Q2FY23 as inventory has already started to reduce from May. Moreover, the company is also looking to increase in‐house manufacturing which is expected to increase efficiencies and reduce supply‐ chain shocks that it encountered in the past. Considering the above reasons and recent outperformance in terms of revenue growth, we continue to maintain our positive stance on the stock and our BUY rating. We believe VGRD’s brand strength, investments in own manufacturing and increased distribution in non‐South markets are now paying rich dividends with Southern market also gaining traction after a lull of couple of years. This improvement in execution and growth trajectory company should now start commanding higher valuation multiples.



Outlook


We have upgraded our EPS in FY23 and FY24 by 8.5% and 5.8% respectively and now build‐in FY22‐24E Revenue/EBITDA/PAT CAGR of 13%/20%/20% with a revised PT of Rs293 and continue to value company at 40x FY24 EPS and maintain our BUY rating. Consistent delivery and margin improvement would be key for further earnings upgrades.
