Premium brands continue their upward trajectory

Radico reported 6% yoy rise in sales though prestige and above brands continued their upward march, growing at 17.2% yoy in Q4 and 20.7% in FY14. The share of prestige and above brands in overall portfolio increased to 17.3%/18.3% in Q4/FY14 which augurs well in the medium term from a margin perspective.

EBIDTA margin in Q4 were impacted by rise in selling and other expenses even as ENA prices continued to rise during the year due to strong demand for molasses across user industries. However, as capacity for grain based molasses rises, this could ease pricing pressure in the medium term. PAT declined 37% yoy on higher tax rate and interest cost though moderated to some extent by higher other income.

Retain Market Performer on margin challenge

Sustained higher selling costs are likely to eat in to benefit provided by rising share of premium brands in the overall portfolio; moreover, ENA costs are also expected to remain elevated. We expect prestige and above brands to maintain their robust growth and based on FY14 results, we revise lower our FY15/16 estimates primarily to reflect headwinds to margin and retain our Market Performer rating on the stock with revised 9-12mth target of Rs110.
