Emkay Global Financial’s report on Titan Company
Titan’s Q3 performance exceeded our expectations, with EBITDA/PAT growth of 63%/135% beating est. by 12-15%. Margins surprised positively, with the jewelry segment reporting an EBIT margin of 14.6% (up 320bps yoy), driving 68% growth in jewelry EBIT. Despite near-term restrictions, the commentary was optimistic. Management expects the wedding season to be strong in the next five months and plans are in-place to push wedding sales aggressively. It is positive about the reengineered product, light-weight jewelry, which can attract more consumers and become a competitive advantage. Network expansion should remain strong, and the company targets 30-40 store openings in jewelry. Eyewear is seeing significant acceleration, with the addition of 53 stores in Q3. The target is to reach 1,000 stores in FY23 vs. ~700 currently.
We maintain our bullish stance with a revised TP of Rs2,900, valuing it at a lower multiple of 60x Mar-24E EPS (65x earlier), factoring in higher COE. Margin recovery in watches and further improvement in Caratlane’s profitability could drive more margin upside.
