Should You Invest In Rainbow Children’s Medicare IPO

“Rainbow is one of the largest private chains of hospitals in pediatric/maternity healthcare. Given the increased western trend following, couples in India are also looking for experiential value added services during the pregnancy and delivery of their child. Also, specialty hospitals provide specialized doctors and wide array of services over legacy nursing homes. Rainbow follows a doctor engagement model whereby most of the core specialists work exclusively at the hospitals on a full-time retainer basis. This model ensures that most of the core specialists are available 24/7 on a roster basis at the hospitals, which is particularly important for children’s emergency, neonatal and pediatric intensive care services. We believe, going forward specialty chains like Rainbows are likely to gain higher market share in the specialty field as people are more inclined towards overall service aspects especially for the birth of child which is a form of celebration.  We recommend Subscribe for Long Term,” brokerage firm Nirmal bang said in a report.

“This issue is a combo of OFS & fresh issue and is priced at a PE of 43.53 on the is of annualized FY 22 numbers. The profitability for 9 months ended 31st December 2021 increased substantially to 126.41 crores from 38.53 crores in the same period of last fiscal. There might be a possibility that this sudden spurt in profitability was due to covid second wave hospitalizations in Q1 FY21-22. Thus we believe that this exponential rise in profit might not continue in the future. However, the specialized nature of the business, experienced management team, proven ability to attract, train and retain high-caliber medical professionals, under penetration of hospitals in India, make this issue good for long-term investors,” said Santosh Meena, head of research at Swastika Investmart.
