MOSL: JUBILANT FOODWORKS (Upgrade to Buy)-COVID improves structural outlook, right-to-win strengthening

JUBILANT FOODWORKS: COVID improves structural outlook, right-to-win strengthening; Upgrade to Buy

(JUBI IN, Mkt Cap USD5.4b, CMP INR3063, TP INR3630, 19% Upside, Upgrade to Buy) 

  • While Jubilant FoodWorks (JUBI)'s sales were broadly in line with our expectations, margins surprised positively.
  • The management believes the QSR business in India is at a significant inflection point. In line with this, the company has not only increased its store expansion guidance (150-175 stores from 135 earlier) but also announced investments to boost the supply chain. Moreover, in an interesting new thrust, it has shown intent to gradually become a food tech company. On the technology front, JUBI is significantly expanding its customer experience, analytics, and product innovation teams. The personalization of purchases and identifying triggers for buying in various customer segments would be important growth areas.
  • These welcome initiatives are strengthening JUBI's right-to-win in a rapidly expanding QSR market - wherein the post-pandemic medium-to-long term opportunity is looking significantly superior to pre-pandemic levels. In addition to its robust delivery moat, the company has also added value and technology moats (which are now strengthening further). This gives it a sharper edge over QSR peers and aggregators. It is already the most efficient on sales per sq. ft. basis, leading to best-of-breed profitability as well as the best balance sheet metrics among peers.
  • Given the structural opportunities in the QSR space and JUBI's dominant positioning with proven and profitable model, we expect JUBI to be the key beneficiary of favorable trends (shift towards branded players). Thus, we upgrade the rating to Buy with TP of INR3,630 (60x Sep’23 EPS).
