Valuation and Recommendation

Aster  DM  Ltd  has  shown  consistent  sales  growth  of  38%  during  FY12-17 with EBITDA growth of 16% as the company doubled its number of clinics in past two years. This has resulted in increas ed expenditure base. Further due to one-time write-off take in Saudi Arabia, the company reported loss at  PAT  level  in  FY17.  However,  we  believe  these  are  one-time  incidents. We expect Aster DM to be back to double digit EBITDA margins soon. With the  IPO  money,  the  company  intends  to  repay  Rs  564  cr  of  debt,  which would bring down the interest out go; aiding the bottom-line. We believe the  valuations  are  fair  considering  the  huge  potential  in  the  industry.

Going forward, as the company is coming out of its  investment phase, we expect Aster to report  higher growth in profitability and improvement  in margins  as  well  as  return  ratios.  At  higher  band  the  issue  is  offered  at 19.6x  FY18E  calculated  EV/EBITDA. We like the company’s strong brand equity  and  consistent  track  record.  We  recommend  investors  to subscribe the issue for long term gains.
