Should you buy the shares of Relaxo?

On Monday, the research analysts of the broking company Sharekhan has said in their research note that “We interacted with Mr. Sushil Batra – CFO and Mr. Vikas Tak – Company Secretary, of Relaxo Footwear (Relaxo) to understand the current business environment and future growth prospects of the company. The company has undertaken corrective pricing actions to help revive sales volumes, which were affected by raw material inflation, consumer demand slowdown and a hike in the footwear GST rate to 12% from 5%. After key input prices corrected, Relaxo undertook a price cut of 12-15% in key value-for-money brands such as Relaxo, Bahamas and Flite to reduce the prices and make it competitive with unorganised players. The company expects sales volumes to gradually recover and margin pressures to ease as key input prices fall further, from Q3FY2023. Thus, FY2023 is expected to be a muted year while a strong recovery is anticipated in FY2024. The company is focusing on 4-5 key growth levers to achieve consistent volume growth of high single to low double digit in the medium term."

They further claimed that “Relaxo is well poised to achieve revenue and earnings CAGR of 14% and 22%, respectively, over FY2022-FY2025E, with key levers expected to drive consistent growth. The company has a strong, debt-free balance sheet with good cash generation ability. The stock currently trades at 80.6x/59.6x its FY2024E/FY2025E earnings. We have introduced FY2025E earnings through this note. We maintain a Buy recommendation on the stock with a revised price target (PT) of Rs. 1,185 (rolling it forward to October 2024 earnings)."

“Relaxo’s revenue reported a CAGR of ~10% with volume CAGR of 5% over FY2017-FY2022. Inflationary environment and GST rate hike on footwear below Rs. 1,000 per pair will affect the performance in the near term. However, the long-term growth prospects of the domestic footwear sector are intact. With the implementation of GST, there is a shift from unbranded to branded products, which provides further scope for the company in the Rs. 55,000 crore – Rs. 60,000 crore Indian footwear market, of which ~50% is unbranded. The management has identified 4-5 levers which are expected to drive growth for the company including higher contribution from e-commerce channel, expansion in closed footwear, increased export contribution, adoption of the EBO model and steady growth momentum maintained in the open footwear category." they further have added in their research note.
