Farfetch Continues to Benefit From COVID-19 Lockdowns, Strong Luxury Buying

Jelena Sokolova, CFA Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Jelena Sokolova, CFA |

We increase our fair value estimate for no-moat Farfetch to USD 24.00 thanks to time value of money impact and higher expected growth in 2021 after strong first-quarter results. We believe that Farfetch’s revenue continues to be helped by lockdowns, in-store purchasing and travel restrictions in many geographies, and strong luxury demand backdrop, as luxury companies in our coverage are reporting first-quarter 2021 sales almost at 2019 or even in some cases (Hermes, LVMH’s fashion and leather division) significantly above 2019 levels. We expect this strong growth to normalize to high-/mid-teens in the post-pandemic years.

Maintaining independence and editorial freedom is essential to our mission of empowering investor success. We provide a platform for our authors to report on investments fairly, accurately, and from the investor’s point of view. We also respect individual opinions––they represent the unvarnished thinking of our people and exacting analysis of our research processes. Our authors can publish views that we may or may not agree with, but they show their work, distinguish facts from opinions, and make sure their analysis is clear and in no way misleading or deceptive.

To further protect the integrity of our editorial content, we keep a strict separation between our sales teams and authors to remove any pressure or influence on our analyses and research.
