KIMS IPO: Assessment

  • KIMS (Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences Limited) operates nine multi-specialty with a total bed capacity of 3,064, including over 2,500 operational beds as of March 31, 2021, which is 2.2 times more beds than the 2nd largest provider in AP and Telangana.
  • KIMS has gone from being a loss-making entity in 2019 to a profitable firm in the previous financial year. Between financial year 2017-18 and 2020-2021 revenues / EBITDA / PAT of KIMS have grown at a 3-year CAGR of 20.4% / 114% / 105%, .
  • KIMS has a strong regional focus on Andhra and Telengana and is looking at Bangalore & Chennai. KIMS has intentionally and strategically decided to focus on the southern India healthcare market where it has a strong understanding of regional pulse, customer culture, mindset of medical professionals and there exists a good market for quality and affordable healthcare services.
  • KIMS is one of only three hospitals in India that are rated AA by Crisil
  • KIMS is almost debt-free and generated good amount of free cash flows in financial year 2020-21.
  • despite operating in an asset-heavy industry,
  • The IPO is mainly to provide exit to promoters and investors. General Atlantic is making a partial exit.
  • The strong performance put up by KIMS in FY21 may appear to be be due to COVID‐19 but as per management this is not the case and higher revenues from transplant etc. has contributed to better margins. Infact due to COVID 19 volume of patients may have been slightly less as most of the Company’s hospitals were non Covid but patients may have have postponed their procedures due to perceived COVID risks. This was also as KIMS added 2 new specialties, heart & lung transplants and liver transplants. These are very high-end surgeries with fewer patients but high margins.
  • KIMS’s revenue is diversified across specialties and the Income mix was 17.82% from cardiac sciences, 12.55% from neuro sciences, 9.30% from renal sciences, 4.64% from orthopaedics, 5.25% from gastric sciences, 5.71% from oncology, 6.11% from mother & child care, 1.86 from organ transplant, 35.28% from others, and 1.48% from other income. The top 10 doctors contributed 21.80% of their total income and the top 25 doctors contributed 36.10% of their total income.
  • Its flagship hospital at Secunderabad, have been accredited by the NABH, achieved NABH standards for emergency care and are “green operating theatre” by Bureau VERITAS. As on January 30, 2021, KIMS Secunderabad is the only hospital in AP and Telangana to have an emergency department complying with NABH standards.
  • For FY 2021, it clocked OPM of 27.9%. KIMS IPO is priced at a P/E of around 31.2 times its FY21 earnings (post-issue capital). This is reasonable compared to peers though Hospitals are judged more on other parameters.
  • Its EV/Sales is 4.8 x times which is almost same as Fortis Healthcare, lower than Max Helathcare but higher than other peers like HealthCare Global Enterprises, Narayana Hrudayalaya, Shalby, Kovai Medical Center etc.
  • Since inception KIMS has retained over 80% of doctors. A possible reasons is that KIMS doctors have equity ownership in the company.
  • The 3 year CAGR of KIMS is the best amongst major hospital players
  • KIMS IPO was last reported to be commanding a GMP of Rs. 20-30.
  • In past Hospital IPO’s have not given listing gains to Investors.
  • I intend to apply in KIMS IPO to a limited extent or fully depending on subscription on Day 3. Even as valuations look stretched I have a positive view on the company due to track record of strong operational and financial performance, ability to turn around acquired hospitals, addition of high end surgeries, good cash flows. Listing gains will depend more on market conditions at the time of listing.
