Motilal Oswal’s research report on Jubilant Foodworks
JUBI continues to build extensively on its three key moats of delivery expertise, supply chain efficiency and technological superiority. The emphasis on its ‘value for money’ proposition was also highlighted with the company choosing not to hike the price of its ‘Every Day Value (EDV)’ offering even as it took price increases on other parts of the portfolio. Management also indicated a good initial response to Popeyes with medium- term targets of 250-300 stores. We had highlighted in a detailed note earlier this month about: a) how Popeyes has fared globally, b) what JUBI brings to the table and c) why do we believe it is the most scalable among JUBI’s non-Domino’s businesses. Quick-service restaurants (QSRs) are our preferred picks to play the discretionary consumption growth story. JUBI, DEVYANI and SAPPHIRE are our top picks in this domain.
The stock trades at 35.9x FY24 pre-IND AS 116 EV/EBITDA. While not inexpensive, we believe the company deserves premium multiples for the abovementioned reasons. We maintain our BUY rating and value the stock at 40x Jun’24E pre-IND AS 116 EV/EBITDA to arrive at our TP of INR720.
