Abstract
We re-initiate coverage of M1 Kliniken AG (M1) with a Buy rating and €14 price target. In our view, the company's growth prospects are excellent. M1 was an early mover in Germany's lifestyle and beauty market and forged a disruptive network of branded clinics for cosmetic treatments. Now the company is accelerating the international expansion of its clinic network and wants to double the number of beauty centres by YE24 (currently ~50). A $51bn addressable beauty market underpins our optimism, and we believe M1's operational upside is currently underappreciated by the market.
