Maintaining a buy rating, HDFC Securities stated, "In the new post-Covid normal, we believe that people's demand for assessing self-immunity and frequency of preventive check-ups will increase, which will add to the topline as TTL offers these tests at affordable costs. Thyrocare is aggressively looking to expand its network. It plans to increase its branded committed franchisees to 2,000 in FY22 and add 10 more Regional Processing Laboratories (RPLs) to improve reach, minimize logistical cost and improve sample turnaround time. Acquisition by PharmEasy (API Holdings Ltd) would help in improving the volume growth over the long term."
