Meanwhile, has managed to improve its profitability parameters during the quarter ended September 2022 (Q2FY23). The company’s net profit was up nearly 330 per cent year-on-year (YoY). While margin performance was driven by growth in revenue, the company is also making structural changes that allow it to control cost better.

HSBC Global Research has a ‘buy’ call on the company’s stock, which has a structural attractiveness supported by a strong Q2 performance. “With its leading scale, reach, and broad product range, Nykaa is a rare combination of profitability and sustainable exponential growth in our view. We expect revenue to double every two to three years in the coming decade,” the brokerage said in a report. CLICK HERE FOR FULL REPORT

According to analysts at HDFC Securities, Nykaa has the potential to be a hybrid, but as of now (85 per cent of net sales value (NSV) – inventory-led), it shares more characteristics with a busy, efficient, linear online pipeline than a platform. Additionally, Nykaa’s total address market (TAM) seems to be oversold as well. Hence, valuation stencils must be realigned accordingly.

The brokerage said in its initial coverage report said Nykaa is an efficient online business; its success in part is due to the absence of potent competitors (this is gradually changing). Ex-ad income, lack of non-linear monetization levers forces us to realign our valuation compass somewhere between a linear business and a pure platform, it added.
