Shoppers Stop Q4 Review – Green Shoots Visible Post-Recovery From Omicron: Motilal Oswal

BQ Blue’s special research section collates quality and in-depth equity and economy research reports from across India’s top brokerages, asset managers and research agencies. These reports offer BloombergQuint’s subscribers an opportunity to expand their understanding of companies, sectors and the economy.

Adjusted for the one-off, Shoppers Stop Ltd.’s Ebitda increased 13.8% YoY, below our estimate, as the company lost ~ 15-20% revenue led by Omicron in January-February 2022.

However, green shoots are visible as March 2022 saw 40% YoY growth and April is witnessing double-digit growth versus pre-Covid-19.

Shoppers Stop’s heightened pace of store additions and ramp up in private labels are likely to revive growth. We have raised our FY23E / 24E Ebitda by ~ 5% each, on expectation of better growth and modeled 28% revenue compound annual growth rate over FY 22- 24 backed by revenue recovery and higher store additions.

However, the longevity of growth is uncertain as the lifestyle apparel category has reported muted growth outlook.
