Bharti makes a stunning move!
 

Bharti makes a stunning move!

According to the brokerage, Bharti Airtel (Bharti) has embarked on a market-testing tariff hike in Haryana and Odisha circles - and the move has just added a huge upside risk to our estimates. Company has withdrawn its offering of Rs99 recharge coupon which used to be valid for 28 days (entry pack). Now the minimum recharge pack in the two circles is priced Rs155 which offers unlimited voice, 1GB data and 300 SMSs. This is indeed a bold move and the tariff hike quantum is beyond our best-case scenario. It shows Bharti's strong urge to drive ARPU to Rs300 (from Rs190 in Q2FY23) and that the move is not just another for the bucket-list. "This is also a message / offer to competition that - Bharti is ready to walk-the-talk on tariff hikes. The development leads us to increase our EV/EBITDA multiple for the company's India business to 11.5x FY24E (earlier: 10.5x). Accordingly, we raise our target price for the stock to Rs970 (earlier: Rs875). Upgrade to BUY (from Add). Our earlier one-notch downgrade was in fear of depleting FCF generation on 5G capex, and lower belief in likelihood of tariff hike, which has now been addressed," the brokerage has said.
