Let's talk about concerns (Images attached)

- High contingent liabilities
- National Anti-Profiteering Authority (GST) Notice
- SEBI Proceedings in relation to certain non-compliances under securities-related laws.
Concerns continued (images attached)

- SHL and Directors engaged in a similar line of business
- Criminal proceeding against a Promoter and Directors, Raoof Dhanani (Matter pending currently)
- Johnny rockets closure
- In Aug 2017 company couldn't meet the criteria to list
Concerns continued (images attached)

- Income Tax Raid (please read RHP to know more details, can't summarize it as its legal language)
- Pledge (quite small but still) with RBL Bank
- Geographical concentration
- Red Apple acquisition wherein lender has not provided consent
Concerns continued (images attached) -

- Certain instances of discrepancies / non-compliances by them in relation to certain filings and disclosures made to the RBI and the RoC under applicable law

- Ratings downgrade
Ok, quite a lot of concerns are there.

One more - the Capital Structure

We see BBQ has been continuously raising capital one after the other and that tells us a lot

They need to keep raising cash, investing/burning it to stay relevant and clock growth
I will be blunt/truthful here - They have no moat

They have to keep reinventing, re-imagining, re-investing in themselves to clock growth/stay relevant

Preferences change rapidly

Look at cloud kitchens and rebel foods

One more thing from the capital structure -

575,000 equity shares of Rs. 5 each were issued to Alchemy India Long-term Fund Ltd (Mr. Rakesh Jhunjhunwala) at a premium of Rs. 827 per share on March 29, 2018. (cost price is Rs 832, FV was 5, premium was Rs 827)

IPO price is 500
Let's look at financials now -

-Balance Sheet (Lots of debt, negative equity)

-Profit & Loss (Nothing worth mentioning, Net loss all years, EBITDA profit. But net profit matters)

-Cash Flows (CFO grew and FCF was also there)
One more concern that I wrote this mrng -

Before I go to Valuation & Conclusion, let's sum up

- No Moat
- Loss-making for quite some time
- Cash burning nature of business
- Lot of other concerns
- Competition (BBQ like restaurants which are priced lower + Cloud kitchens)
- Very High Debt
Valuation -

NAV is (5.33) (negative 5.33) as of Nov 30, 2020

RoE for Nov 30, 2020 is (556.59)% (negative 556.59%)

Diluted EPS for Nov 30, 2020 is (28.50) (negative 28.50)

Can't really Value
Conclusion -

I believe this is quite clear

Many concerns + Extremely competitive industry (talk to restaurant owners and u will know what a task it is to run one and make money, I have spoken to a few and they all say the same )

Better businesses to look at in the markets!

Thread on Nazara IPO -

Finally, got 4 years of standalone info (attached in img)

They haven't given standalone no's in RHP which is damn uncool (shows lack of transparency, anyways)

As suspected standalone numbers are not good 👇


Let's see Consol and Standalone now (images attached)

Now I understand why they must have chosen not to disclose standalone financials

Look at the standalone cash flows - the company is continuously investing cash to acquire or invest in gaming startups

And that one single metric tells us everything about the business model of Nazara

They have to continuously use cash to acquire assets (games, IP, rights, licenses, etc)

Tata Consumer

#1 - Acquired Kottaram Agro Foods Private Limited. Primarily engaged in the business of healthy breakfast cereals and millet-based snacks under the trademark 'Soulfull'

Rationale - Entering into new adjacent categories in the
food space.

More in images 👇

Had tried their range of cereals in college, (2015 in a More store in Manipal, so have to say their distribution is good. Even recently have seen their products everywhere from Godrej Nature's basket to Dmart)

The taste was damn good and the cereal type was quite niche
#2 - Y'day in Starbucks saw that they are selling Sampann range of products (Poha etc) in Starbucks (in addition to the other food products such as Pastries, Puffs, etc)

That makes sense - promote their brands at their outlets

Disclosure - no reco

Making money is important but preserving it is more important!

In 1999, Cuban and his partner Todd Wagner sold to Yahoo for $5.7 billion. Cuban received 14.6 million shares of Yahoo. With Yahoo shares trading at $95, he became a billionaire overnight.
Cuban wasn’t alone. The internet bubble made many ppl rich. But after the bubble popped in March 2000, most of them lost their fortunes. Cuban, on the other hand, actually got to keep his money. Because he had the foresight to execute a shrewd option trade to protect the wealth.
Cuban had a feeling that Yahoo stock was funny money. Yet, as part of his deal with Yahoo, he wasn’t permitted to sell his shares immediately.

So he entered a massive options trade to protect his $1.4 billion stake.
