Investment Rationale
While there is an upward revision in sales on faster-than-expected recovery, there is actually a ~10% reduction in EBITDA and PAT in FY21 due to unexpected loss in 1QFY21. FY22 EPS estimates have been raised by 6%. PAG has an immensely impressive earnings growth track record. Its recent efforts on balance sheet improvement are commendable. Also, management endeavors to improve channel efficiency and revitalize growth are likely to eventually turn fruitful. However, the path to earnings recovery is unclear. EPS growth has been flat for the past two years. Category slowdown and competitive headwinds present other significant near-term challenges. The stock is trading at 47.6x FY22E EPS. The brokerage values the company at 45x Sep'22E EPS to arrive at TP of INR 20,000.
