Investment rationale:
WLDL reported revenue growth of approximately 27%, driven by 23% from SSG and new store additions (up 7% to 326 stores). Compared to Q4FY20, revenue growth was around 35%, driven by a full recovery of the restaurant channel and the doubling of convenience sales (mix of 48% now vs. 32% in Q4FY20). WLDL pointed out that the addition of gourmet burgers/fried chicken has premiumized its portfolio and enhanced its offerings in the meals category of the Indian informal restaurant (IEO) market, while it already holds leading positions in the snack categories. /end of the night.

Upon full reopening, WLDL has the potential to offer a relatively higher upside, thanks to the added convenience contributions and full restaurant recovery, in our view. While gourmet burgers have been rolled out across the network, fried chicken is currently in the southern market with few pilots in the western region. Store additions were robust with 10 net additions in the fourth quarter. WLDL expects to add 35-40 stores in FY23E and over 200 store additions over the next 3-4 years.
