Motilal Oswal's research report on V-MART
After acquiring 74 stores of “Unlimited” from Arvind Fashion, VMart aims to achieve profitability by: a) improving store productivity, b) optimizing cost and c) shutting loss making stores. The company is targeting to achieve an EBITDA margin of 5-6%/7-8% in the near term/long term, respectively. In that context, we visited a few ‘Unlimited’ Stores in Hyderabad along with some peer sets to get a perspective on: a) the changes made since the acquisition as well as store value propositions v/s peers in the region, and b) the store operating metrics and profitability.
Consequently, we maintain our TP of INR4,450 on the stock, assigning 20x EV/EBITDA on Mar’24. Given the huge growth opportunity in the value fashion segment and VMart’s strong execution ability, it has the potential to achieve 25-30% EBITDA/PAT growth sustainably in the long run backed by 20%+ revenue growth (SSSG + new store adds). Reiterate BUY.
