“As on 31st Mar 2021, there were 264 KFC stores, 297 PH stores and 44 CC stores which contributed 84% to FY21 revenue. Deeply affected by the pandemic, this vertical de-grew by 14.0% in FY21 to Rs 954 crore after growing 13.4 per cent in FY20. However, post the second wave we are seeing encouraging trends of sales revival. We expect the Core Business to grow its store count by 545 stores to 1150 stores (KFC +236 stores to 500, PH +253 stores to 550, CC +56 stores to 100) leading to a 41.1% CAGR in revenue to Rs 2,680 crore by FY24. The gross margins for the core brands (KFC 67.7%, PH 74.1%, CC 78.5%) are expected to sustain going forward given their strong brand appeal," said Ventura Securities in a note.
“Over the period FY19-21 revenue growth was impacted by the onset of Covid to Rs 1,135 cr (-6.9 per cent CAGR) leading to a consequential reduction in EBITDA to Rs 226.9 crore (-9.8 per cent CAGR) and deepening of losses to Rs 81.3 crore from INR 59.3 cr (FY19). However, the operating cash flow was encouragingly positive at Rs 239.6 cr. The Debt to Equity of the company stood at 11x (with a net debt of Rs 1,212.4 crore) and net worth of Rs 113.8 crore," it added.
“Going forward we expect Devyani International Limited to grow its revenue at a CAGR of 41.7 per cent to Rs 842 crore over the period of FY21-24E driven by Core brands revenue CAGR of 41.1 per cent to Rs 2,680 crore, International Business revenues CAGR of 13.3% to Rs 168 crore, and traction in Other Business revenues to Rs 378 crore (CAGR of 84.8 per cent)," it further added.
