Khambatta Securities’ research report on Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences

Founded by renowned cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. B Bhaskara Rao and headquartered in Hyderabad, Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) is one of the largest corporate healthcare groups operating in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. KIMS has grown from a single 200-bed hospital at Nellore in 2000 to a multi-disciplinary healthcare service provider with 9 multi-specialty hospitals and over 3,000 beds today. KIMS focuses on offering quality healthcare services at affordable prices, regardless of the market, specialty or service type. It has successfully implemented affordable pricing model in all its hospitals across Tier 1 and Tier 2-3 markets. KIMS has consistently delivered strong operational and financial performance through robust patient volumes, cost efficiency and diversified revenue streams across medical specialties. A disciplined, low-leverage approach to acquisitions enables KIMS to maintain its affordable pricing model and expand its hospital network. KIMS is set to acquire a 51.07% equity stake in Sunshine Hospitals which will help it to consolidate its position as a leading provider of tertiary care services in its key markets and bring on board an orthopaedic surgical team led by Dr. AV Gurava Reddy. KIMS’s plan to add ~1,700 incremental beds over a span of 24-48 months provide further revenue visibility.


We expect robust revenue growth in FY22, followed by acceleration in FY23, with contributions from Sunshine Hospitals and new beds. The KIMS stock currently trades at an attractive forward P/E of 21.8x FY24E EPS. Based on a target P/E multiple of 28.0x, we initiate coverage on KIMS with a BUY rating, based on a price target of ₹ 1,776 and an upside potential of 29%.
