Geojit Financial Services said, "At the upper price band of Rs 690, Go Fashion (GFIL) is available at Mcap/sales of 14.9 times (FY21) which appears fully priced. However, considering GFIL's investment in digital channels, omni-channel engagement, focus on e-retail, distributive growth strategy to tap customers from Tier 1 to Tier 3 cities and expansions plans for existing and newer geographies, we assign a 'Subscribe' rating for the issue on a long-term basis."
"A growing number of working women, rise in disposable income, consumer shift towards buying from safe and hygienic facilities triggered by COVID-19 augurs well for GFIL," it added.
Angel One also gave a 'Subscribe' rating on the issue. "Go Fashion India has a better track record of revenue growth, higher operating margin and high return on equity compared to TCNS Clothing. Considering all the positive factors, we believe this valuation is at reasonable levels."
The company's bottom-wear products, including churidars, leggings, dhotis, harem pants, Patiala, palazzos, culottes, pants, trousers and leggings are sold across multiple categories such as ethnic wear, western wear, fusion wear, athleisure, and types of denim.
