KIMS Healthcare Management Ltd has the highest return ratios due to 1.) Lowest Capex per bed (Rs.36 Lac/bed) and 2.) Highest EBIT margins 27%.

Their Low Capex strategy is a mix of acquiring land in advance and constructs building on their own to reduce costs and another way is acquiring land on a long-term lease with low-cost terms to avoid high rental costs.

KIMS Healthcare Management Ltd intends to increase the current operational beds utilization from 2246 in FY22 to its optimal capacity to 3064 beds considering normalcy and demand environment continues to remain healthy going forward. The company is generating a cash flow of around Rs.350 crs every year.

Hence Management does not see any cash flow mismatch over the next 3 years for capex planned for expansion.

Current ARPOB (Average Revenue Per Operating Bed) is sustainable for FY23 and may increase going forward on improved payor and case mix.

Further company has not taken any price hike over last 2 years which will also see some upward revision.


KIMS Healthcare Management Ltd will continue to benefit from its regional market leadership, strong cash flow generation and sustained focus on operational efficiency and capacity expansion.

We believe KIMS is an attractive play in the booming healthcare services market due to its (a) planned capex, (b) industry-leading occupancy, (c) growth in revenue and margins, and (d) reasonable valuations.

At CMP, the stock trades at 21x of FY24E EPS. We recommend a BUY rating in the stock with the target price (TP) of Rs.1375, 25x FY24E EPS
