Edelweis's research report on Cox & Kings

Cox & Kings’ (CNK) continuing operations revenue fell 2% YoY to INR 6bn (as per IGAAP) impacted by adverse currency and tepid performance in Leisure International in UK due to Brexit. Leisure India reported 11% YoY growth in revenues, but intense competition hit margins (down 135bps YoY). While education saw stable constant currency revenue growth of 13%, reported revenues fell 10% YoY marred by currency. Expansion pipeline in Meininger remains strong. Factoring in rising competition in Leisure India and impact of Brexit, we cut our FY17/18E EPS by 6% with focus on organic growth and debt repayment remaining key monitorables. Maintain ‘BUY’ with TP of INR 227 (INR 241 earlier).
