The Group offers a comprehensive bouquet of healthcare services across specialties and super specialties across more than 25 specialties.
KIMS will continue to benefit from its regional market leadership, strong cash flow generation, and sustained focus on operational efficiency and capacity expansion. We believe KIMS is an attractive play in the booming healthcare services market due to its (a) planned Capex, (b) industry-leading occupancy, (c) growth in revenue and margins, and (d) reasonable valuations. At CMP, the stock trades at 21x of FY24E EPS. We recommend a BUY rating in the stock with the target price (TP) of Rs.1375, 25x FY24E EPS.
