The financial year 2020-21 was an exceptional year where most retail outlets had to be closed and footfalls fell drastically. That led to a sharp fall in sales as a result of which the fixed costs could not be fully absorbed.

However, if you remove the COVID effect, the numbers have been fairly strong. But for the exceptional COVID situation, Go Fashion has been a consistently profit making company.

EBITDA margins around 30% and ROCE in the range of 14% to 18% can be construed as solid numbers. As Go Fashion further increases the share of EBOs, it would be able to see higher retention margins while a focus on online selling would make the business more scalable at minimum incremental investments.

Investment Perspective for Go Fashion India

Here is what investors must consider before investing in the Go Fashion IPO


a) The latest year losses and the Jun-21 quarter losses are an outcome of an exceptional situation created by COVID. Otherwise, financials have been robust.

b) The company is likely to benefit going ahead as it enhances the share of sales from EBOs and focuses more on online as a scalable growth model.

c) The company will be using the funds to open 120 new EBOs and that is likely to be value accretive for the stock in terms of fund usage.

d) Offers one of the widest ranges of women’s  bottom-wear with a very wide price range to suit all types of customers.

The stock would be about 45-50 times normalized earnings for FY21, so it would be cheaper in forward terms. A good participation in the fast growing retail segment.
