The brokerage reiterates bullish view on Bajaj Electricals (BEL) on account of a) sustained outperformance to peers in consumer products segment revenue growth, b) structural improvement margin trajectory on account of gross margin improvement and cost optimisation (e.g. tie up with Mahindra Logistics for logistics solutions (estimate savings between 100-200bps savings annually starting FY22), c) phasedown on EPC segment and focus on receivable collection and consequent improvement in balance sheet and d) significantly attractive valuation (25.5xFY23EPS; CP segment contribute 95% to PAT). Near term commodity led pricing/margin pressure should be used as an opportunity to enter/add given a) this is industry wide phenomenon and not BEL specific, b) product portfolio is primarily small appliances/ticket size categories and demand usually is relatively inelastic, and c) RM inflation hurts smaller/unbranded players even more, thus helps organised players in market share gains. The brokerage maintains BUY rating with Mar’22TP of INR 1230 (INR 1170 earlier; 35% upside from CMP).
