Here are some of the key takeaways from the financials of the company for the last 3 years.

  • The revenues over the last 3 years have been quite erratic. For example, sales fell sharply in FY22 and has picked up sharply in FY23. If you compare FY23 with FY21, the sales growth is just about 40% over the last 2 years overall. Net profits have followed a similar cycle, even as current year net profits are half of FY21 net profits, largely due to a spike in the cost of raw materials used in the latest year FY23.
     
  • While net margins of the company are fairly attractive at 8.63% in the latest year, the margins have been erratic in the last 3 years. Again PAT margins are less than half of FY21, due to the impact of sharply higher cost of raw materials. The return on equity (ROE) stands at 27.64% in FY23, while the return on assets (ROA) is robust at 9.88% in FY23. However, as we mentioned earlier, the erratic losses in FY22 and the fall in profits in FY23, compared to FY21, makes it tough to take a comparative sustainable view.
     
  • The asset turnover ratio or the sweating ratio has been at 0.82X and that is good considering the capital intensity of the business. However, this sweating ratio also gets supported by the robust levels of return on assets (ROA). We need to wait for a more sustainable number to be able to take a call.

 

The company has latest year EPS of ₹29.60 and we have not included the weighted  average EPS, since the previous year data is not exactly comparable. The latest year earnings are being discounted by the IPO price of ₹161 per share at 5-6 times P/E ratio. That looks fine, but for the volatility in numbers we have seen in the last few years. Since the company is yet to announce the FY24 results, we can use available data to extrapolate. The 6-month EPS for FY24 stands at ₹4.88 per share and when extrapolated to full-year EPS of ₹9.76, it translates into a more believable P/E ratio of 16-17 times earnings.

To be fair, Aimtron Electronics Ltd some bring some intangible advantages to the table. It has a diversified range or products and an expertise in handling complex product problems. Its relationships with OEM customers have stood the company in good stead, and that is another big positive. However, the big question is whether 16-17 times forward earnings can be justified for a business that typically has a net margins in the range of 3-4% on an average. One question that the company has not answered is how the ROE will grow, since that is the key to valuations in the future. Investors must first satisfy themselves on this point. This will certainly be an investment that entails a higher level of risk and longer waiting period. Investors must position themselves accordingly.
