Seeing the attraction in Burger King IPO and the outlook for QSR we expect that Mrs Bectors Food Specialities Ltd will be another attractive IPO for the investors. The fundamentals of the company don’t look good as of now as they have seen very slow growth in the last 3 years also debt have increased form 35 cr in 2017 to 85 cr in 2020.

The company is well-positioned in North India and has an opportunity to expand in the South and other parts of India. The company does not have any contract with the institutional customer which is the key risk for the company also bakery business has low entry barrier as it can be started with low investment.

However, the demand from the QSR chains will be a key beneficiary for the company. We recommend a SUBSCRIBE rating to the IPO only for the aggressive investors for listing gain and short term.
