Emkay Global Financial has given Buy recommendation for TCNS Clothing Co with a target price of Rs. 1050 in its research report issued on Jan 12, 2022
Emkay Global Financial’s report on TCNS Clothing Co
Our channel checks suggest the recovery in physical channels likely improved to ~90% in Q3 vs. ~65% in H2FY21/Q2FY22. The recovery is aided by marketing investments in ‘Alia for Aurelia’/Plus-size campaigns, traction in footwear and the launch of new styles. Unlike its peers, TCNS did not see any operating cash loss in the last 18 months with lower participation in discounting during EoSS. Due to its focus on profitability and slower ethnic recovery, TCNS has lagged behind peers in terms of recovery by 10-15% (Exhibits 1-2). Increase in the addressable market through introduction of accessories/plus-sizes should help deliver relatively better SSG/earnings when normalcy returns. After successful launch in ~100 W stores (~10% contribution), TCNS has also launched footwear in Aurelia stores.
As TCNS delivers on our earnings expectations (~40% CAGR over FY20-24E), it should narrow down the 30-75% valuation discount vs. peers. Given the robust supply chain, penetration potential and strong online presence, we retain Buy with a TP of Rs1,050.
