Investment Rationale

Robust growth with improvement in margins

The pharmacy business has been ramping up well in the past three years with revenues up at a CAGR of 28% driven by addition of new stores as well as growth in same store sales (SSS). Going forward, we expect Apollo to add about 250 new stores in 2-3 years. This coupled with 15-16% growth in the mature stores is expected to drive revenues. EBITDA margin is expected to improve to 4% in FY15.

Favorable environment for Pharma market

The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology has launched telemedicine services in collaboration with the Apollo Hospitals on August 25, under which people can consult doctors through video link and also order generic drugs online. Under the service, people can visit Common Service Centers (CSC) and fix an appointment for seeking expert consultancy with a doctor.

We also believe the doctors at Apollo Hospitals will be able to provide consultancy to the patients using the video link facilities

Revenues to grow at a three-year CAGR of 20% by FY18

Apollo’s businesses - hospitals and pharmacy – have recorded robust growth in revenues as well as profitability over the past three years. The hospital's business’ revenues grew 18% with more than 200 bps improvement in EBITDA margin. The pharmacy business’ revenues grew 28%, driven by the addition of new stores and ramp-up in existing stores, with more than 300 bps improvement in EBITDA margin in the past three years.

Healthcare services with a focus on specialties such as cardiology, neurosciences, orthopedics, and oncology. These specialties contribute 65% to the hospital's business revenues.

Prescription drugs, consumables, and surgical instruments; constitute 75% of total pharmacy sales. Also sells over the counter products and private goods has increased.

Geographic Presence

Apollo Hospitals is one of the largest organized healthcare service providers in India with a network of 6,000 owned beds (2,600 beds are under JVs) and more than 2,000 beds in the managed category and also one of the leading players in the organized pharmacy retail market with more than 1,400 stores. Optical Health Solutions (operating under the Medplus brand) is the second-largest organized pharmacy chain; currently has 1,050 stores.

Apollo Hospitals has a dominant presence in south India and around 40% in Chennai and Hyderabad alone. The Chennai cluster accounts for 45% of the hospital's business revenues and the Hyderabad cluster 20%.

Now it is looking to increase its presence in western India. In the Pharma business too, more than 60% of the stores are in the southern region.

Valuation

The pharmacy business sustained its growth momentum in Q1FY16 - incorporating the impact of the Hetero chain integration which was completed during the quarter &ndash, and revenues grew 35%. EBITDA margin improved above our expectations to 3.6% from 3.1% in Q1FY15. Excluding the Hetero contribution, the EBITDA margin was an impressive 3.9%. Going forward, the pharmacy business is expected to maintain its growth trajectory, aided by the addition of new stores and growth in same-store sales. We expect a two-year CAGR of 20% in FY18.

Conclusion and Recommendation

Based on the strong product portfolio and geographically diversified presence, ATS Research value the stock at 54x PE, which gives a target price of Rs 1525. We feel that investors could buy the stock at the CMP for the given target prices for a year from now.
