Sharekhan’s research report on Godrej Consumer Products
Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL)’s Q4FY2022 performance will be affected by global commodity inflation, slowdown in the domestic market, and sustained subdued performance in the Indonesia business. We expect GCPL’s consolidated revenue to grow by 6% (led by 7-8% growth in the domestic business, while the international business will remain flat). Higher input cost inflation would lead to a 375 bps decline in the gross margin and a 173 bps decline in OPM. Despite near-term headwinds, management is focusing on achieving double-digit revenue growth (mix of volume and value) in FY2023. The product basket is showing strength with 85% of the portfolio gaining market share.
The stock has corrected by ~18% in past three months (and 24% in last six months) and is trading at discount valuations of 39.4x/33.4x its FY2023E/FY2024E earnings. We maintain Buy with a revised PT of Rs. 959.
