Valuation & recommendation  

The company plans to expand markets adjacent to its existing core markets, including Chennai and Bengaluru. Apart from Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, it is also exploring its prospects of entering into some parts of central India as well as in Bhubaneswar (Odisha). The company is also giving emphasis on consolidating the existing markets by way of expanding clinical capabilities in the existing hospitals along with adding more bed capacity to meet the growing demand. The company has in recent years expanded its hospital network through the acquisitions of hospitals in Ongole in FY17, Vizag & Anantapur in FY19 and Kurnool in FY20 (all in Andhra Pradesh). The three-year compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of KIMS is the best amongst the major hospital players. The company is taking initiatives to improve the existing operational efficiencies. It is also investing in digital healthcare and technology. Major qualitative factors, which drive the growth of the company comprise the track record of strong operational & financial performance, disciplined approach to acquisitions resulting in successful inorganic growth as well as the ability to attract, train & retain high-quality doctors, consultants, and medical support staff. Looking at the above positives, we believe that the company will keep growing its business at a healthy rate, and hence, you can invest for a listing gain.
