According to Motilal Oswal, "Metro Brands' ability to run an efficient retail network, as witnessed by the superlative productivity of Rs. 25,000/sq. ft. and store-level EBITDA margin of 25%, has translated into healthy net cash balance sheet and superlative RoIC. It has scored well on growth with consistent double-digit revenue/PAT growth over the last 10 years. Being one-third the size of BATA, there is a huge opportunity for the company to expand its store count. Recent brand tie-ups with third-party products could provide further growth opportunity. We have factored in revenue/PAT CAGR of 31%/37% over FY22-25E fueled by healthy store additions and strong recovery in SSSG. Key downside risks to our call are rising input cost and GST, modest store additions, and competition from foreign brands."

"Campus with its vertically integrated manufacturing ecosystem and superior product quality has created an edge over the Indian sportswear market, which is dominated by the foreign brands. Its effective cost management, quick time to market and premiumization push are benefiting from the tectonic shift towards the sportswear category within the footwear market. Campus' tenable earnings growth, strong returns profile and self-sustainable growth model warrants rich valuation. We factor in supernormal revenue/PAT CAGR of 29%/42% over FY22-25E, respectively. Key downside risks to our call are weak industry demand in tier 2-3 cities, rising input cost, and execution risk in new regions," Motilal Oswal mentioned.
