RBI Shares Fairly Valued as Canadian Pandemic Headwinds Persist; We Expect a Protracted Recovery

Sean Dunlop Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Sean Dunlop |

We're modestly raising our fair value estimate for narrow-moat Restaurant Brands International to $69 from $68 prior as we balance the impacts of time value, input cost inflation, and turnaround efforts in the Tim Horton's segment. Unlike most quick-service restaurant (QSR) peers, we expect RBI's recovery from COVID-19 to stretch into 2022, as extended lockdowns in Canada have weighed heavily on Tim Horton's results, though we continue to view pandemic-related demand shocks as largely transitory. Shares appear fairly valued.
