Industry Overview
  • Along with the local AC industry, Voltas also operates in the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP), heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and other international (mostly West Asian) markets. 94% of Voltas' sales come from these two businesses. However, each of these categories' revenues is fairly diversified in terms of the regions they serve and the goods and services they provide.

  • Consumer electricals such as fans, kitchen and cooking appliances, lighting fixtures, as well as white goods like washing machines, televisions, refrigerators, and air conditioners, are all included in this industry.

  • The organized sector is gaining market share from the unorganized sector in the consumer durables business. Estimates indicate that 30% of the market is still unorganized, giving listed Indian businesses a considerable opportunity to grow their market share going forward.

  • India is viewed by multinational organizations as one of the primary markets from which future growth is likely to originate. A favorable population composition and rising disposable income would be the main drivers of the consumer market's expansion in India.

  • The Indian consumer electronics and appliances market was valued at US$ 9.84 billion in 2021 and is projected to more than double to US$ 21.18 billion (Rs. 1.48 lakh crore) by 2025. Production of electronic hardware in the nation totaled US$63.39 billion in 2021.

  • According to estimates from 2021, India's markets for refrigerators, washing machines, and air conditioners were worth approximately US$ 3.82 billion, US$ 8.43 billion, and US$ 3.84 billion, respectively. The market for air conditioners is anticipated to increase from 65 lakh units in 2019 to 165 lakh units by 2025, while the market for refrigerators is anticipated to increase from 145 lakh units in 2019 to 275 lakh units by 2025.

  • With a committed investment of Rs. 4,614 crores (US$ 580.6 million) and 42 enterprises chosen under the PLI Scheme for White Goods in November 2021; 44,000 more direct jobs are anticipated to be created.

  • The PLI Scheme for White Goods received applications from 19 companies in April 2022, with committed investments of Rs. 1,548 crores (US$ 194.79 million).

  • As a result of the PLI scheme, 61 businesses have set up component manufacturing facilities in 111 locations spread throughout 14 states and UTs, resulting in the creation of jobs all over India.

 

Concall Overview (Q2FY2023)
  • In comparison to ₹1,737 crores in the same quarter the previous year, the company reported a marginal growth of 6% for the Q2FY2023 in consolidated total income.

  • Compared to ₹162 crores in the same quarter the previous year, profit before share of profit & loss from related joint ventures, and tax came to ₹149 crores. An extraordinary provision made on an international project during the current quarter had a further negative impact on profit before and after tax.

  • As of August 2022, Voltas was still the market leader in the RAC segment, holding a YTD market share of 22.8%, 750 basis points ahead of the No. 2 competitor.

  • On the revenue front, Q2 is a lean quarter for the UCP segment. The segment reported muted topline growth of 4% YoY due to prolonged monsoon and lower discretionary spending.

  • High-cost inventory has an impact on margins in the UCP category. The management anticipates that the same will have some effects in Q3FY23 as well. To maintain a balance between market share and margins, the management has set a margin outlook of a higher single-digit margin for the upcoming few quarters.

  • In the EMPS segment, one of the overseas projects, the main contractor unilaterally canceled the contract with Voltas in October and cashed the underlying bank guarantees as a result of the main contractor's customer terminating the main contractor's contract. Voltas has established a provision of INR 106.4 crores for this and is pursuing legal action.

  • The demand for capital equipment in the Engineering Products and Services industry was impacted by an increase in export duty fines in the iron ore market. Due to better capital equipment delivery for the textile industry and a strategic after-sales service strategy, the segment's revenue performed well during the quarter.

Voltas Limited - Recommendation Rationale
  • Along with the local AC industry, Voltas also operates in the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP), heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and other international (mostly West Asian) markets. 94% of Voltas' sales come from these two businesses. However, each of these categories' revenues is fairly diversified in terms of the regions they serve and the goods and services they provide. Dominating the market for room air conditioners nationwide, with both window and split models available. Over time, this has helped the UPBG segment grow its market share. At the end of August 2022, its market share was 22.8%.

  • In the long run, Voltas is well-positioned to profit from any growth in new order flow in its target markets because of its established market position in the project sector. While domestic order booking is relatively stronger, driven by strong orders from the water management, rural electrification, and urban infrastructure sectors, order booking in foreign markets is still subdued as a result of projects being delayed due to the economic slowdown and a cautious order picking strategy.

  • Low debt levels, comfortable profitability, and good liquidity are signs of Voltas Limited's low financial risk profile.

  • LIC has increased its shareholding in Q2FY2023 by 1.67% compared to Q1FY2023.

  • Demand for RAC is projected to be structurally driven soon due to shifting consumer lifestyles following the pandemic.

  • The rising income of a middle-class household in India will be a significant long-term driver of cooling product demand. With a 7% penetration, AC has the lowest market share among white goods.

 

Voltas Limited - Valuation
  • Voltas Limited has shown a revenue of growth of 5% CAGR for FY2018-2022.

  • The company’s net profit was reduced in FY2021 and FY2022 due to covid-19, an increase in the prices of raw materials, and losses made by Joint venture and associate.

  • The company made a loss of ₹6 crores due to an extraordinary provision made on an international project.

  • We anticipate the company could generate higher revenue for the following FY 2023, comparable to the prior year, based on the company's present performance in FY 2022.
