What Led to the Massive Surge in the Stock of Jubilant FoodWorks?

Aug 18, 2021

Shares of Jubilant FoodWorks (JFL) hit a new high of Rs 4,166.4, up 7% on the BSE today on strong growth prospects.

In the past one month, the stock of the quick-service restaurant (QSR) company has rallied 34% following a good set of numbers for the quarter ended June 2021.

In the process, the counter has managed to surpass its previous high of Rs 3,842 hit on 10 August 2021.

Key points contributing to the rally

Expectations of a strong recovery, an aggressive store-expansion rollout for the fiscal 2022 and plans to transition to a food tech company led to a rally in Jubilant FoodWorks, the India franchisee for Domino's.

  • Attractive financial prospects

    For the June 2022 quarter, the company reported a consolidated net profit of Rs 690.6 m, aided by higher revenues despite the second wave of Covid-19 disrupting operations.

    It had posted a consolidated net loss of Rs 744.7 m in the same quarter last fiscal.

    EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation) margins remained unchanged at 24.1% in the first quarter of the year 2022, against 24.3% in the March 2021 quarter.

    Its revenue from operations in the first quarter stood at Rs 8.9 bn compared to Rs 3.9 bn in the same period last year when operations were also disrupted by the outbreak of the pandemic.

    With vaccinations well underway, the management believes the worst is behind them and is confident of delivering strong, sustained growth in the periods ahead.

    The company's revenue growth was muted in fiscal 2020 due to the Covid- 19 situation across the country which has temporarily affected the normal operations (including dine-in) of the restaurants.

    However, in the fiscal2021, JFL saw sales recovery reaching the pre-pandemic levels in the third quarter of the same year and registered healthy growth in March 2021 quarter.

  • Debt free company

    The company's financial risk profile is supported by a debt-free status, a strong net worth, and high financial flexibility. It has been debt-free for the past three fiscals.

    The net worth of the company was Rs 15 bn as of 31 March 2021, and is expected to increase further, backed by healthy accretion to reserves.

  • Jubilant FoodWorks's reach and expansion plans

    JFL is India's largest food service company. Its Domino's Pizza franchise extends across a network of 1,380 restaurants in 298 cities.

    Also, the company has the exclusive rights to develop and operate Domino's Pizza brand in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal.

    However, store addition for Domino's was low (20 new stores) in quarter one of the year 2022 due to lockdowns.

    But JFL's expansion plan is aggressive, with a target of 150-175 new stores in the financial year 2022.

    Management is upbeat about digital and tech initiatives aimed at becoming a food tech powerhouse.

  • Covid-19 pandemic pushes Jubilant FoodWorks to diversify operations

    Jubilant FoodWorks is betting on new categories at a time when rivals are keeping their attention firmly on their existing operations amid a raging pandemic.

    In the past one-year, Jubilant FoodWorks, the master franchisee of Domino's Pizza and Dunkin' Donuts in India, has forayed into the biryani segment, expanded its Chinese food chain Hong's Kitchen and invested in Barbeque Nation.

    According to an analyst, Pizza is just one segment within food services. There are many more cuisines and food choices that consumers have. Jubilant is tapping those segments to partake of overall growth.

    Industry sources say Jubilant FoodWorks could look at getting into South Indian cuisine as well, a big food segment in India, in the future.

    That apart, in March 2021, the company said it will also bring Popeyes, an international chicken fast-food brand, into India and neighbouring countries as part of development and franchisee agreement.

    Chicken is one of the largest and fastest growing categories in India and is expected to grow rapidly in years to come.

    Popeyes will be an exciting addition to the JFL portfolio and is expected to become one of the key drivers of growth in the coming years.

Is Jubilant FoodWorks efficiently re-investing its profits?

Jubilant FoodWorks' three-year median payout ratio to shareholders is 24% (implying that it retains 76% of its income). So the management is reinvesting profits heavily to grow its business.

Besides, Jubilant FoodWorks has been paying dividends over a period of six years. This shows the company is committed to sharing profits with its shareholders.

Quick service restaurants show strong appetite for growth

According to a media report, the domestic food services industry, estimated to be Rs 4.2 tn in size, is expected to grow by 9% over the next five years.

Of this, the QSRs have been the fastest growing and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

QSRs are expected to grow at the rate of 19% over the next five years, driven by affordability, aspirational and well-known brands and benefits of scale and sourcing among other factors.

In the post-Covid world, where 30-40% of restaurants are expected to shut down permanently, QSRs are likely to emerge stronger and are well placed to gain share from unorganised players.
