Strong Third Quarter at Sprouts Suggests Its Turnaround Is on Track; Shares Trade Fairly

Zain Akbari, CFA Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Zain Akbari, CFA |

Our $29.50 per share valuation of no-moat Sprouts should rise by a mid-single-digit percentage (similar to the after-hours trading response) after the firm posted strong third-quarter earnings, with comparable sales up 2.4% and a roughly flat EBITDA margin (7.6%) despite a rising cost environment. We still expect mid-single-digit marks for Sprouts’ long-term annual percentage sales growth and adjusted EBITDA margins, and suggest prospective investors await a greater margin of safety.
