Mrs Bectors Food IPO Recommendation

Let us examine various strengths and risks related to the business of Mrs. Bectors Food Limited.

The biggest strength of the business is its well-known brands and a portfolio of a myriad of medium and premium products.

Their focus on quality and recipes of their products make them enjoy a comfortable market share in their industry.

They keep on innovating and launching new products in the market while maintaining their previous products’ quality.

They are also a leading exporter of biscuits with about 23% share of the Indian biscuit export market according to the Technopak Report in 2017.

Their revenues from the export of biscuits were ₹2,063.41 million, constituting 45.52% of the Biscuit Revenue from Direct Sales in Financial Year 2018, which has grown at a CAGR 13.21% during the period between the financial years 2014 to 2018.

Their exports mainly help them in operating across business cycles and mitigate seasonality risk in the domestic market.

They are also the preferred supplier of buns to Hardcastle Restaurants Private for the last 11 years.

Their stringent quality standards have helped them to cater to other multinational QSR chains as well.

They have six manufacturing facilities that have been located strategically and have developed a strong network of distributors across India and globally.

The experience and skills of the promoters and management team are also an added strength for the business. Also, they have a strong financial profile and track record.

Now, listing down some important risk factors for the business of the company.

The demand for their products depends on demographics, local preferences, food consumption trends, and consumer confidence. Any shift in these and their inability to anticipate these may affect the business negatively.

Any negative publicity due to any contamination or deterioration of their products may cause legal problems, and restriction on the use of their well-recognized brand name may affect the company’s profitability.

Also, the company faces fierce competition from many of its peers like Britannia, Parle, and ITC in the biscuit segment and Britannia, Modern, and Harvest Gold in the bread and bakery segment.

Failure to protect confidential information from their competitors like product recipes, pricing, or launch information may negatively affect the operations.

Insufficient supply of raw materials due to any reason like seasonality, price fluctuation, and adulteration may affect the company’s operations.

Inability to adhere to strict food safety laws, environmental laws, and other mandatory regulations of their industry or the loss of their existing certifications for their products also pose risks to the business.

After analyzing the company’s market position, its growth and expansion strategies, and its financial performance and risks related to the business, it can be said that the investors may subscribe to the Mrs. Bectors Food IPO.
