During inflationary times, hard-discount retailers are likely to do well as they are likely to attract more customers due to squeeze in personal disposable income, more commissions due to price hikes taken by fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies, analysts at IDBI Capital said in a recent report.

“Given strong vaccination drive, we expect significant normalization of mobility. Consequently, we expect discretionary categories to come back to normal levels. Retailers whose business relied on malls (apparel companies) are likely to bounce back strongly,” the brokerage firm said.

Meanwhile, in the past three months, post-April-June quarter (Q1FY22) results, the stock of D-Mart has surged 66 per cent, as against a 15 per cent gain in the Sensex. In Q1FY22, the company had reported a 132 percent year-on-year (YoY) jump in standalone net profit at Rs 115 crore. Its profit stood at Rs 50 crore in the year-ago period. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) margin improved to 4.4 per cent in Q1FY22 as compared to a 2.8 per cent in Q1FY21.
