There are near term concerns around historic high inflation and slowing market growth, but the management is confident on its unique ecosystem’s ability to tap on the potential that lies ahead and reorient the business to deliver sustained profitable growth.
Jubilant FoodWorks holds the exclusive master franchise rights from Domino's Pizza Inc for India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal, besides exclusive rights to develop and operate Dunkin' restaurants in India and Popeyes restaurants in India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan.
Analysts at Motilal Oswal Financial Services said they broadly maintain our revenue/PAT estimates for FY24/FY25. The raw material cost pressure (cheese) may continue for few quarters and the management indicated that it may refrain from price hikes as the near-term environment looks challenging.
The new CEO’s efforts on improving dine-in LFL growth, his decision not to hike prices amid the transient high-cost environment in wheat and cheese, building the technological and analytical edge of JUBI are welcome moves that will create value in the medium term.
The brokerage firm believes there are strong long-term opportunities in QSR and JUBI with its moats is poised to take advantage of the same. After a steep stock price correction of around 25 per cent from its peak, valuations appear reasonable at ~28x FY25E EV/EBITDA for a business which has ROE superior to QSR peers and other retail companies.
