Metro Brands Limited (MBL
) was incorporated on January 19, 1977. Metro
Brands is one of the largest Indian footwear speciality retailers, and is among
the aspirational Indian brands in the footwear category. Metro Brands retail
footwear under their own brands of Metro, Mochi, Walk
way, Da Vinchi and J.
Fontini, as well as certain third-
party brands such as Crocs, Skechers, Clarks,
Florsheim, and Fitflop, which complement their in-
house brands. As of
September 30, 2021, Metro Brands operated 598 Stores across 136 cities
spread across 30 states and union territories in India.
Metro Brands had the 3rd
highest number of exclusive retail outlets in India, in Fiscal 2021. They also offer
accessories such as belts, bags, socks, masks and wallets, at their stores.
Positives: (a) One of India'
appeal among aspirational consumer segments (b)
Wide range of brands and
products catering to all occasions across age groups and market (c)
Asset light
business with an efficient operating model leading
to sustained profitable growth
(d) Experienced Board and senior management team.
Investment concerns: (a) Increase in competition (b)
Slowdown in the economy
could impact the overall revenue of the company.
Outlook & Valuation: In terms of valuations, the post-
issue TTM P/E works out to
91x (at the upper end of the issue price band), which is high considering MBL’s
historical top-line & bottom-line CAGR of ~9% and ~6% respectively over FY18
-
20. Further, the company’s historical net
profit growth is low compared to its
peers Relaxo Footwears. However, MBL has Asset light business, strong brands
and wide range of products but we believe that these positives are captured in
the valuations commanded by the company. Thus, we have a NEUTRA
L rating
on the issue.
