Jefferies | Rating: Buy | Target: Rs 3,050
The 32.8% stake buy in DP Eurasia was at an attractive valuation, while this raises concerns of volatility & bandwidth. Despite being the largest shareholder, there won’t be line-by-line consolidation, reported CNBC-TV18.
Credit Suisse | Rating: Neutral | Target: Rs 2,450
DP Eurasia valued at a large discount to other listed Domino's Franchisees and increases Jubilant's addressable market. The dynamics of these markets could be very different, reported CNBC-TV18.
