CLSA has maintained a buy on INOX Leisure with target of Rs 330. The house is of the view that the company has seen strong rebound in ad revenue growth with footfall monetisation in terms of F&B spends to be next key focus area.

The firm expects screen addition to accelerate in FY19 with the company remaining well placed to drive inorganic growth. Sustainable improvement in footfall monetisation can close valuation gap with PVR, it added.
