Analyst Recommendations – Should you subscribe?

Choice Broking – Subscribe

“Considering Covid-19 as an exceptional phase for the sector, we feel that with positive advancement in vaccine development and considerable relaxation in the economic activities, it is expected to report improved financials over the period,” said Choice Broking, while recommending to subscribe the Burger King IPO

Angel Broking – Attractive

“Burger King has priced its issue at a significant discount compared to Jubilant FoodWorks, so looking at the valuation and the growth the company is expected to do in the future, the issue is looking attractive to us at the first look,” said Angel Broking

Prabhudas Lilladher – Subscribe

“We recommend subscribing to Burger King India Ltd (BKIL) IPO given the brand’s success with 260 stores in just five years and a huge runway for growth with a target of 700 stores by 2026. We expect near-term financials to remain under pressure as BKIL has suffered a loss of Rs 118 crore in the first half of 2021 (H121). We expect Burger King to turnaround by FY23/24, led by post-Covid-19 recovery and benefits from rising economies of scale and new store openings.” said Prabhudas Lilladher in their recommendation.

Geojit– Subscribe

“At the upper price band of Rs. 60, BKIL is available at 29x FY20 EV/EBITDA and 3.6x FY20 EV/Sales which seems attractive considering its robust growth in-store additions and future revenue”, said Geojit while recommending “Subscribe” with a long-term perspective.
