Key Points

During the Union Budget 2018-19, Indian government announced National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS) to cover ~10cr poor and vulnerable families (up to Rs5 lakh cover per family/ year) for secondary and tertiary hospitalization. This brings ~50cr people under health insurance coverage, boosting domestic healthcare industry, including hospital sector. Aster operates in India with 10 hospitals (3,887 bed capacity) and plans to expand by adding 5 new hospitals (1,372 beds) over the next 4 years. Aster, with its presence in the tier 2/ 3 cities is likely to emerge as one of the beneficiaries of NHPS in India.

The Emirate of Abu Dhabi introduced mandatory health insurance for locals and expatriates in 2006, which increased number of insured people in Abu Dhabi at a CAGR of 7.4% over FY08-13 and covered 3.43 million people in 2015. The mandatory health insurance was also implemented in Dubai in March 2017, which is likely to have brought 1.5-2 million additional people under health insurance coverage by 2017. Aster is well placed in the GCC countries due to its early mover advantage, deep understanding of the region and strong presence.

Key Risk

Profitability has been inconsistent over the past and is likely to remain weak due to cost associated with new hospital additions and lower occupancy in the existing hospitals.

    This article claims RJio was given a "Backdoor Entry" into the 4G Based Voice Routing. The peculiar aspect is without the Voice License, Rjio would have been a mere ISP. With the license, it is now a holistic communications service provider, with ability to exponentially scale the bouquet of products. The events indicate it was meticulously planned way before the auctions because the auctions were clear on the agenda: 4G for internet only.
