Prabhudas Lilladher Report
We cut FY22/23 earnings by 13%/ 6% given -
- dampened summer season sales due to Covid-19 and
- commodity inflation-led margin pressure.
The company remained cautiously optimistic even as buoyant summer season demand has been impacted by second wave of Covid-19.
Unprecedented increase in commodity cost and ocean freights are likely to put pressure on margins despite two tranches of price hikes (5%/3%).
However, management remains confident of sustained market share gains in room air conditioner (1% annually; currently at 25.6%) while maintaining margins at minimum of 12%-12.5% led by -
- wide distribution reach (19,000 touchpoints)
- strong brand recall
- supply chain efficiencies
- calibrated price increases
