Sectorial outlook – The total hospital market size in India in the financial year 2020 was expected to be approximately Rs. 4270 billion growing at a CAGR of 13% between the financial years 2016 and 2020. The Indian Healthcare delivery market is estimated to grow to Rs. 5 trillion in the financial year 2022 with the majority of growth being contributed by the low base and the pent-up demand from deferred treatments in the financial year 2021. With renewed impetus from PMJAY and government focus shifting onto the healthcare sector, the healthcare delivery market is expected to grow at 15-17% CAGR and reach Rs. 7.67 trillion in the financial year 2025. Growth in household incomes and, consequently, disposable incomes, are critical to the overall growth in demand for health care delivery services in India. The share of households falling in the income bracket above Rs. 0.2 million is expected to increase to 35% in the financial year 2022 from 23% in the financial year 2017 and this is expected to have a positive impact on the hospital sector.

The financials (revenue and net profit) are shown in the graph below:

Valuation – For the last 3 years average EPS is Rs. 4.89 and the P/E is around 110x on the upper price band of Rs. 542. The EPS for FY21 is Rs. 4.25 and the P/E is around 127x and if we annualize FY22 earnings then the asking price is at a P/E of 31x. Apollo Hospitals (P/E 76.6), Fortis Healthcare (P/E 57), Narayana Hrudayalaya (P/E 41.9), Max Healthcare (P/E 148), and Krishna Institute (P/E 34.9) are the listed peers as per the RHP. The company P/E is between 31x and 127x.

Recommendation – It is a leading multi-specialty pediatric and obstetrics and gynecology hospital chain in India and has generated strong revenue growth in the last 3 years and 9 months though the fluctuating margins are a bit of concern. After considering all the factors we would recommend investors to “Subscribe” to this IPO from a medium to long term perspective.
