RATIONAL FOR INVESTMENT:
The stock is trading at significant discount to its peers.
The business model is unique. The group company S Kumar is major player in the industry.
The model is to act as master franchisee in India. As disposable incomes of Indians are increasing they will demand more of international brands.
It portfolios include Reid & Taylor, Dunhill, Carmichael House, Stephens Brother and Belmonte. The brands are already established in India and have good recall value.
The company is in expansion mode and is looking forward to add few more international brands in the portfolio in the next few quarters.
It operates on pure buy-sell model. The production and distribution being done by the producers of the brand. This cut down the costs for BHRL.
The additional advertising will be the sole responsibility of the producers of the brand not BHRL. This again gives the cost advantage to the company.
The company has also entered into a Joint Venture with mid –price Italian brand Oviesse, aimed at adults and children.
Half of the current stores are through franchisee. This is done to reduce the cost.
The company also has good interest cover.
