Nykaa’s entry into the fashion segment holds promise. Although we expect lower margins in FY22 (lower ad spend in FY21), we see steady margin expansion led by scale economies. The company has already expanded margins from 1.8 per cent to 6.6 per cent over FY19-21 making it one of the few E-com players to turn profitable. Nykaa can sustain a CAGR of ~35 per cent in sales, 50 per cent in EBITDA over the coming few years with double digit margins, the brokerage firm Prabhudas Lilladher had said in IPO note.
