EBITDA margins improved 275 bps YoY to 14.6% also higher than I-direct estimate of 12.4% mainly due to positive impact of Ind-AS 116.

Delta vis-à-vis EBITDA was mainly due to negative impact of Ind-AS 116.


We value the stock on an SOTP basis by valuing the healthcare business (existing hospitals & JV) at 13x FY21E EV/EBITDA, healthcare business (new hospitals and JVs) and pharmacy business at 1.5x FY20E EV/sales. We ascribe a target price of Rs 1500.
