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.
