Salient Points: Global Health IPO | Medanta IPO

  • From the 500 cr fresh issue proceeeds for Rs. 375 will go towards debt repayment.
  • After planned expansion of beds , share of flagship Gurgaon hospital which is 56%, will reduce to ~40%, diversifying its basket of hospitals.
  • In FY2021, Medanta took out-patient department pharmacies in-house at its Gurugram, Lucknow, Indore, and Ranchi hospitals, and launched outpatient department pharmacy at south Delhi clinic and home care services in Gurugram as well as New Delhi.


  • Concentration risk. Gurugram hospital contributes 56% at present.
  • Failure to maintain, attract or improve occupancy rates may result in an under utilization of capital expenditure and reduce profits.
  • Performance is highly dependent on doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals.

Global Health IPO | Medanta IPO: Assessment

  • Global Health hospital at Gurugram was ranked as the best private hospital in India for 3 consecutive years in 2020, 2021 and 2022, and was the only Indian private hospital to be featured in the list of Top-200 global hospitals in 2021 and was featured in the list of Top-250 global hospitals in 2022 by Newsweek.
  • As at March 31, 2020, Medanta had 2,141 installed beds, which grew to 2,467 installed beds as at June 30, 2022, representing a growth of 15.23%. Upon operation of their Noida hospital, Medanta expects domestic and international patients as part of its strategy to capitalize on medical tourism.
  • Medanta has a strong presence in multi-specialty tertiary care. 28% of 1,866 operational beds are ICU beds, due to which average revenue per operating bed (ARPOB) is ~ Rs. 59,000 per day, higher than its listed peers.
  • If we compare its performace now vs pre covid leve;s, FY22 occupancy moved to 60%, from 55% pre-covid in FY20.
  • Further in this period EBITDA margin went up to 22% from 15%.
  • Medanta to become net debt free post IPO.
  • Current installed beds as of June 30, 2022 is 2467. These are likely > 3,500 by Fiscal 2025 as operation of Noida Hospital starts.
  • There was good response to Medanta anchor issue.
  • In general Hospital shares historically gave not given good listing gains. Recently listed Rainbow hospital was in -ve territory for quite some times but later handsomely recovered on back of god results and investor interest.
  • The TTM EPS on post-issue equity works out to Rs 7.95. At the upper price band of Rs 336, P/E works out to 42.28. Its peers like Apollo Hospitals traded at TTM P/E of 73, Fortis Healthcare at TTM P/E of 50, Max Healthcare at 68 and Narayana Hrudayalaya at TTM P/E of 42.44.
  • The issue could be OK for long term perspective. I have a slightly positive bias on the Global Health Ltd (Medanta) IPO.
