Maintaining buy rating Motilal Oswal said, "Apollo's digital health platform's flagship offering, its e-pharmacy, has deep roots due to a 4,300 strong physical store presence. We expect the pharmacy distribution business to record a CAGR of 17% over FY21-24, on the back of same-store sales growth, higher private label penetration, and new store additions. Apollo's mature hospitals are already established centers of excellence that provide gold-standard care. Mature hospitals with ~5,300 operating beds and Rs. 35b in revenues (FY21) grew at a 4% CAGR over FY13-21."
