Morningstar | Cost Inflation and Reduced China Exports Weighing on Unicharm’s Profits; Improving into 2Q

Narrow-moat Unicharm kicked off the year with a double-digit profit decline resulting from of decreased diaper exports to China and accelerated cost inflation. The result fell short of our estimate but seems to be in line with the company’s internal target. While the degree of cost inflation, about JPY 3.2 billion mainly for the petrochemical-based materials, advanced faster than our expectation and the company’s guidance of JPY 5 billion in the first half, management expects the pace to slowdown from the second half. We therefore maintained our forecasts and fair value estimate of JPY 3,500. ...

Growth decelerated from the pace of the first half mainly due to a high comparison hurdle resulting from increased exports of premium Japanese diapers to China from the last third quarter.
