Outlook and Valuation

With a large untapped market and increase in segmental demand across the geography, the company has substantial growth prospects through expansion in new and existing geographical locations (in Tier II and Tier III cities). Affordable pricing across its sub-brands will help the company garner market share of the unorganized segment of footwear industry. Although, high competition and restricted entry into new geographies could present a challenge for the company’s expansion plan, we believe affordable pricing, the asset light model and large distribution network of the company would contribute towards sustained growth and improvement in margins and asset turnover ratio. We expect revenues to grow at 15% CAGR FY17-19E with 140 bps expansion in EBITDA margins to 12%. We expect PAT to grow at compounded rate of ~36% to INR 566 mn by FY19 owing to reduction of Interest cost on account of debt repayment. At the upper price band of INR 750/share, the issue is valued at a PE of 43x with FY17 Adj.EPS of INR 17.4. We recommend to SUBSCRIBE to the issue as a high risk high return long term investment.
