"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an impact on the revenue which has been partially offset by major cost reduction, including a reduction in employee benefits, advertising and sales promotion expenses etc," the company said in its financial report.
"While prioritising safety and well being of employees, the company is extensively leveraging technology for its operations. While the company has a strong balance sheet and robust cash position, the company is re-evaluating all costs and focusing even more on automated processes," Just Dial added.
UBS in its note said, "We raise our DCF (WACC of 12.8% and terminal growth of 4%)-based price target to Rs800.00 due to our higher long-term growth expectations (FY25-30E EPS up by 4-6%). Our price target implies 15.5x FY23E PE and 10x FY23E EV/EBITDA. We expect JD Mart to become a competing second player with a 25% market share in the next three years and contribute 19-27% of revenues in FY23-25E."
