Investment Rationale
The brokerage factors in impact of COVID-19 in the estimates and hence, cut its revenue/EBITDA estimates by 6-13/10-26%. However, it raises target EV/EBITDA to 13x from 11x as the balance sheet strengthens with falling leverage which was the key overhang on valuations. It maintains BUY with a revised target of Rs156/share based on 13xFY22E EBITDA (earlier: Rs148). Key downside risks: Higher competition in oncology, and delay in operational turnaround of new centres.
