The Phoenix Mills rating – Buy: the capital position is a bulwark in difficult times


The company expects retail rentals to return to pre-Covid levels at S2FY22 assuming there is no third wave of Covid.

Phoenix Mills (PHNX) operations FY21 and Q1FY22 have been affected by shopping center closures due to successive waves of Covid. For FY21, shopping center consumption of Rs 33.3 billion was at 69% of FY20 levels while rental income of Rs 5.6 billion was at 55% of FY20 levels. To overcome the disruption, PHNX raised around Rs 26 billion of equity through the QIP channel and the dilution of the SPV level stake between August 20 and June 21 and has access to an additional funding pool of Rs 10 billion. rupees. We assume a 30% LTL rental income loss for FY22 due to expected rent waivers in S1FY22 and hold our estimates for FY23 as we believe the long-term growth story of category shopping centers A in India remains intact.
