Barbeque Nation is not a new name in the industry. From presence in top metros to smaller cities, the restaurant chain is quite popular across the country. The company has grown from a single outlet in 2008 to over 160 restaurants across 77 cities in India and six international restaurants.
However, while Barbeque Nation’s revenue has grown consistently, over the years, its mounting losses are also a cause of concern.
Not surprisingly, Barbeque Nation’s IPO hadn’t impressed a lot of analysts. “The Covid-19 pandemic, too, has had an adverse impact on the operations of the company. Hence, we expect profits will remain under pressure over the medium term,” said Jyoti Roy, DVP- Equity Strategist, Angel Broking who gave a ‘neutral’ rating for the IPO.
Roy’s rationale is that at the higher end of the price band, the shares are expensive compared to the company’s future earnings potential.
