With no clarification on the utilization levels /regarding launch of domestic innerwear business, we lower our revenue growth forFY20 (to 7.2% - lowest in the last 3 fiscals), but expect marginal improvement inmargins on the back of increasing garment share in the mix (+20 bps). We retain our ‘HOLD’ recommendation with a lowered target price of Rs.629.
The stock trades at a 1 year forward valuation of 11x. While increasing garmentingsegment is a positive, we await clarity on the order flow for the Ethiopia plant andalso look forward to the soft launch for the innerwear segment which though is a large market (with few organized players) will be a challenge for the company to penetrate into the same. Thus we are cautious on the valuations and value the stock at 10x, slightly below the 5 year average 1 year fwd P/E on FY21E EPS of Rs. 64.5.
