Company is hopeful that the H2 FY2022 occupancy level will come back to normal. Promotion and Advertising costs may increase whereas some costs may always be lower post pandemic.
Company is confident that both cinema hall and OTT platforms will coexist and thus does not see any disruption due to OTT. 95% people engage in loyalty programmes when visiting multiplexes. Block bookings and private screenings are rising in pandemic like Birthday parties, Anniversary celebrations, small parties etc which are there to stay.
INOX Leisure Limited is consolidating above the weekly support zone and likely to stay positive in the medium term till it stays above the 295-305 zone. Probable resistance in the medium term comes at 350-355 zone. Further momentum to be seen only above swing high of 359 level. Technical parameters look neutral as of now.
Financials and disruptions due to OTT should be seen for 2 more quarters before taking any Investment call for the company as there are too many fixed costs which will come back post 100% occupancy. Thus till FY22 no major improvement in Financials is expected.
