Geojit’s research report on Bata India

Q3FY22 revenue grew by 37%YoY (+37%QoQ) on a low base (de-growth of 26% in Q3FY21) and crossed pre-covid level sales first time. EBITDA improved by 44%YoY to Rs. 169cr while PAT grew by 180%YoY to Rs. 72cr. Gross margin/EBITDA margin improved to 52.7%/20.0% from 51.5%/19.1% YoY. BIL’s cost saving measures across rentals, operations & manufacturing will drive sustainable margin expansion in future. Demand outlook is positive given ongoing vaccination, re-opening of markets and GoI’s strong focus to revive the economy. We believe, BIL will be able to revive its revenue growth trajectory as the economy is back to normal given its strong brand recall & reach. We value BIL at 52x on FY24 EPS.
