BRGD reported presales of 0.76msf (+82%/-54% YoY/QoQ) for a value of INR 4.8bn (+82%/+92% YoY/QoQ). Collection of INR 5.3bn in residential business (vs INR 8.4bn in Q4FY21) was second highest ever. Collection in the commercial portfolio continued to be healthy at 99%. While Retail consumption reached 90% of the pre-COVID level, hospitality GOP margin reported loss at -14% from +22% QoQ. Despite the mid-term challenges in hospitality and retail business, we maintain ADD with an increased TP of INR 357 (vs INR 296 earlier, roll forward to Jun-23E), given the strong momentum in residential business. We have increased our FY22/23 estimates to account for higher price realisation, recovery in retail, improving lease momentum, and lower losses for hospitality business.
