Valuation and Recommendation

Nykaa has emerged as a one of the few e-commerce companies which has become profitable in such short time. As the company is getting more recognized and gained higher market share with sticky customer base (70% of GMV came from existing customers in FY21), the marketing costs and fulfillment cost as % to sales are declining which would drive the margins going forward. GMV’s/Revenues have grown at a CAGR of 56.6%/48.2% over FY19-21. We believe Nykaa is created a niche for itself in the underpenetrated segment. With the basic platform for BPC in place, we believe the company can leverage it well to expand in other verticals like Fashions, recently started Nykaa Men among others. Considering the recession proof (seen during pandemic times) industry, increasing purchasing power of working women especially and higher acceptance of online commerce, we believe Nykaa has multi-year growth opportunity. At upper band of Rs 1125, shares are offered at EV/Sales of 21.8x FY21 earnings. We recommend “Subscribe”.
