Motilal Oswal’s research report on Trent

Despite the adverse impact of COVID-19 over the last two years, Trent’s standalone revenue/PAT reported an encouraging CAGR of 11%/27% over FY20 to reach INR39b/INR2.5b, respectively, which was by far the best among peers. However, due to the increased losses in its subsidiary (Booker India), Trent’s consolidated PAT (post-minority interest) contracted to INR346m in FY22 from INR1.0b in FY20. Consolidated EBITDA (Pre IND-AS 116) posted a 7% CAGR to INR2.3b over FY20-22. Trent’s standalone revenue growth was fueled by Zudio’s stellar performance (topline up >2x to INR11b), well supported by Westside that matched its FY20 revenue of INR27.3b. This was backed by cumulative store additions of 170/40 by Zudio/Westside over the last two years, (191%/21% addition), respectively.

Outlook

We have ascribed a 31x FY24E EV/EBITDA to the standalone business (Westside and Zudio, 15% premium for the last five years until the pandemic and 10% premium to our Retail coverage universe), 1x EV/sales to Star Bazaar, and 15x EV/EBITDA to Zara to arrive at our new TP of INR1,430 (revised up from INR1,180 earlier). Weak demand in the tier 2-3 cites as validated by our channel checks remains the key near-term risk. Retain BUY.
