“EBITDA margin expanded to 5.4% for the quarter, a growth of 32% YoY on the back of both direct and indirect costs efficiencies. Fulfilment cost as a % to revenue stood at 9.7% for the quarter, compared to 11.8% in Q2 FY23. Similarly, employee expense as a % to revenue stood at 9.0% for the quarter, compared to 9.9% in Q2 FY23, witnessing improvements through the last few quarters," the company said in an exchange filing.

Going forward, let's review the analysis and estimates of the domestic brokerages.

According to the brokerage, beauty and personal care (BPC) could be better and fashion revived in Q2. Growth in BPC is steady, but performance is a little lacklustre as GM shrank; the brokerage attributes this to decreased ad income and more aggressive own-brand pricing. CFO is negative on inventory stocking for the upcoming festive season.

“Rolling over our DCF based target price to Sep-24E yields a revised target price of 187 ( 180 earlier); maintain ‘BUY’. Rising competition and increasing debt are overhangs on longer-term visibility and potential reasons the stock did not re-rate recently vis-a-vis other platform peers," the brokerage said.

According to the brokerage, Nykaa's 22% year-over-year revenue growth was nearly in line with rise of 23% in BPC GMV and 27% in Fashion GMV. A larger proportion of e-B2B segment and lower advertising income contributed to the consolidated GM print of 43.1%, which was down 40 bps qoq. The contribution margin (CM) for BPC decreased by 55 basis points on a quarterly basis to 24.1%, while the CM for Fashion saw a notable improvement of almost 370 basis points on a quarterly basis to 8.3%. Before e-B2B breaks even, additional investments might be needed.

“We cut FY2024 estimates, but broadly retain FY2025-26 estimates. Roll-forward to Sep 2024 leads to a revised FV of 170 (Rs165 earlier). Maintain ADD," the brokerage said.

Nykaa Fashion attracted the most attention this quarter, despite the BPC segment being the main emphasis throughout the festive quarter. In addition to achieving a record contribution margin of 4.7%, the segment produced 32%/17% NSV increase on a YoY/QoQ basis. The Indian market has become more appealing to BPC brands, leading to a rise in brand discounting in the BPC segment. Nykaa has also experienced a reversal of advertising income on the new platform.

“We reiterate ‘BUY’ rating with target price of 210 (about 42% upside) as we find strong conviction on earlier than expected profitability in Fashion," the brokerage said.
