Rainbow Children’s Medicare – Financial Highlights of the company

At the outset, the year FY21 is not exactly comparable since operations were largely disrupted due to the pandemic related lockdowns. Hence, the 9-months data for the period ended Dec-21 is more illustrative. With most of the upfront costs and capital investments getting absorbed, the company has shown a much better performance in the nine months to Dec-21. For the nine months, Rainbow reported EBITDA margins of 35.40%. Even net profits margins for the nine-month period was much higher at 16.6%. If you look at net profits for the 9 months period, net profits are higher by 228% on a yoy basis.

How investors should approach the Rainbow Children’s Medicare IPO?

Here are the factors to consider before investing in the Rainbow Children’s Medicare IPO.

  1. Rainbow Children’s Medicarecaters to a very niche market of paediatric care, gynaecology care and obstetrics care. This is a fast growing area, where margins are also relatively higher. The other advantage is that most of the capex has been absorbed and hence profit growth is expected to be rapid from current levels.

  2. The fresh issue portion will be used for repayment of NCDs and for CAPEX and purchase of medical equipment. This is considered to be value accretive to the company and should help post listing valuations.

  3. Now for valuation. At a post-issue market cap of Rs.5,501 crore, it gives a P/E ratio of a very reasonable 32.64X on annualized FY22 earnings. However, if you consider the growth of 20-25% sustaining, then FY23 earnings are discounted at 25X forward, which does look reasonable.

Rainbow Children’s Medicare offers a good niche and profitable high growth in the healthcare space. Investors with a relatively higher risk appetite can look at the stock for medium to long term value creation.
