3. Havells India EBITDA records growth
FY22 EBITDA increased by 12% and margins decreased by 240 basis points to 12.7%. In Q4FY22, gross margins decreased by 800 basis points to 29.3%. Driven by cost rationalization, the decline in EBITDA margins was limited to 340 basis points at 11.8%. PAT increased 17% year-on-year, supported by higher other income. Going forward, revenue growth is expected to be stable, supported by strong B2B demand and a recovery in construction activities.
The EBITDA margin should gradually improve, driven by price increases. We are reducing our EBITDA margin estimates by 80 bps and 110 bps for FY23E and FY24E, given the current high cost of inputs. We expect PAT to grow by 22% in fiscal year 22-24E.

Given a healthy 20% correction in the share price, we value HAVL at a P/E of 45x (historical average) on FY24E and move to BUY with a target price of Rs.1,245.”
