Apollo Hospitals Enterprise saw its shares plummet by 8 percent in early trading on April 29, as investors reacted cautiously to the valuations associated with Apollo HealthCo in its recent deal with Advent International.

Apollo HealthCo, responsible for managing the Apollo 24/7 vertical, is set to raise Rs 2,475 crore from global private equity investor Advent International. Additionally, it plans to merge completely with wholesale pharma distributor Keimed Private Ltd over the next 24-30 months.

Advent’s investment in the merged entity will result in a 12.1 percent stake, valuing the combined entity at an enterprise value of Rs 22,481 crore. Of this, Apollo 24/7 is valued at Rs 14,478 crores, while Keimed is valued at Rs 8,003 crore.

Investor concern primarily revolves around the valuation assigned to Apollo 24/7.

Despite the discounted valuation of Apollo HealthCo, Prabhudas Lilladher views the merger with Keimed positively, seeing it as a move to eliminate any potential leakage. The brokerage finds comfort in the management’s guidance of Rs 1,750-2,000 crore EBITDA for the merged entity by FY27.

Motilal Oswal Financial Services sees the partial stake sale in Apollo HealthCo as a means to inject growth capital. They anticipate a 48 percent earnings CAGR for the merged entity over FY24-26, maintaining a “buy” rating on Apollo Hospitals with a price target of Rs 7,280.

Nuvama also sees potential benefits from the fund-raising, including minimizing 24/7’s cash burn and facilitating future expansion. Leveraging Keimed’s extensive store network could further enhance private label sales and unlock synergies.
