Management Risk – The recent exit of the company’s CEO made a deep correction in stock price and an uncertainty situation in terms of the future business growth. The CEO was the important person for the growth story of the company. Any consistent exits at senior level will further add a question mark on the company’s ability to retain talent.
Competitive Risk – With 60% of the total food services industry (by revenue) being driven by the unorganized segment, the Indian food services industry remains highly fragmented. While the market fragmentation has facilitated international & domestic chains to grow at a fast pace, the appeal of the high growth potential of this industry is attracting more & more players, thereby leading to rise in competition for
the existing players.
Product Concentration Risk – JFL added 146 stores in FY21 (FY20:130; FY19:103), with 134 being Domino’s stores (123, 102). As JFL’s management plans to expand its brand portfolio, along with geographical diversification of operations, it may expose the company to execution risks.
