ICICI Securities Report

Bata India Ltd.’s weak performance continued in Q3 (revenue declined 26%; volume declined 12%), as expected.

We note several initiatives by the company to accelerate recovery-

  1. ramping up sales from new channels (ChatShop, home delivery, store on wheels) to 15% of sales (albeit on a low in-store sales),
  2. capturing semi-urban/rural demand through franchisee stores,
  3. expanding the distribution business, and
  4. restarting promotional campaigns and new launches.

That said, we believe these initiatives are inadequate to mitigate the medium-term headwinds from potential pause in the growth of per capita spending on footwear.
