Management Commentary:

Commenting on the December results, Mr. Sameer Khetarpal, CEO and MD said, “We reported modest top-line growth as LFL growth for Domino’s was flat. This, along with historic high inflation, resulted in margin compression. We have sharpened our strategy to get growth back in the business. Our renewed priorities include – Customer first, Data and technology forward, Operational excellence and Foundation of people and culture. We are confident that the interplay of these sets of priorities will not only help us navigate current headwinds but will help us capitalize on the immense potential of the food service industry.”


Jubilant FoodWorks has reported below market expected performance in the December’22 quarter with 10% growth in the Revenue and degrowth of 40% in the Net Profit compared to December’21 quarter. Company’s Operating profit margin and Net profit margin has declined by huge 480bps and 500bps YoY in the quarter due to the High inflation and rising interest cost. However, reduction in material cost and increasing discretionary spend would be beneficial for the company over longer term because of the recent decrease in the Inflation. For the nine months of FY23 Jubilant FoodWorks has reported the earnings of Rs.4.92 and we expect the company to close the FY23 at the eEPS of Rs.6.56. Based on the estimated earnings the expected PE of the company is 70x at the current market price.
