Avenue Supermarts share price jumped over 5% to a 52-week high on Wednesday after the company reported strong growth in business for the fourth quarter of FY24. DMart shares rallied as much as 5.61% to a fresh high of 4,710.15 apiece on the BSE.

Avenue Supermarts, the operator of DMart stores, reported a standalone revenue of 12,393.46 crore for the quarter ended March 2024, registering a growth of nearly 20% from 10,337.12 crore in the same quarter last year.

The company’s revenue growth during the quarter was driven by 7% growth in revenue per store and a robust 13% year-on-year (YoY) increase in store additions.

Revenue per store has grown 7% YoY to 140.4 crore, while revenue per sq.ft. has grown around 5% YoY to 33,451 per sq.ft, and hence, the gap between revenue per store and revenue per sq. ft. stood at 2%, according to brokerage firm Motilal Oswal.

Earlier, foreign brokerage CLSA initiated coverage on the Radhakishan Damani-led Avenue Supermarts with a ‘Buy’ rating and a target price of 5,107 per share citing growth opportunities.

CLSA sees the total addressable market (TAM) growing to $2.3 trillion in 25 years, with DMart’s share rising to 5% from less than 1% at present. It believes private labels can be a key differentiator, especially when compared with e-commerce and quick commerce.

“DMart is rapidly scaling its private-label offerings, which could drive the next leg of share gains," CLSA said.

DMart is a discount retailer in India’s $500 billion urban food and grocery market with the lowest operating costs. This has driven the lowest consumer prices and led to high sales velocity and better scale, further reducing costs. This has allowed DMart to gain market share in a price-sensitive market, CLSA noted. 

DMart share price has gained over 20% in the past one month and more than 30% in one year.

At 10:25 am, Avenue Supermarts shares were trading 4.05% higher at 4,640.05 apiece on the BSE.
