Sapphire Foods India Ltd. IPO - SWOT Analysis

The company has rapidly expanded to owning 480+ outlets within a span of five to six years. To match with the competitors, the company changed its price model and introduced daily low price and meal bundles to attract more customers.
The company does not have its own product as such. They only manage the brands of Yum! Finding the strategic location and timely management of funds creates a hindrance in expansion.
In the fast inflating food industry, the company's cost-efficient model could keep them top in the league. Their decision to reduce the size of their stores by 40% will reduce rental costs and add up to the revenue.
There is tough competition from peers in the food industry. Consistent growth could be a little tricky since its highest revenue comes from KFC, the risk of diseases like bird flu affecting their revenue remains.

Noteworthy highlights/Competitive strengths

  • With its cost-effective model, they improved gross margin by 180 basis points, irrespective of inflation.
  • They own 480+ outlets in India, along with a global presence.
