On the positive side, the revenues of the company have nearly doubled in the last two years on a CAGR basis, although sustaining this kind of growth is going to be tough. The profit margins have been fairly low which is quite normal in this business which is largely commoditized. However, the company has an established model with a matured market. Investors looking to invest in this company IPO must remember a few basis things. Firstly, this is an industry that has traditionally had low margins and that is likely to impact valuations. Secondly, the sector faces a lot of pressure from the unorganized sector and that can be a major challenge in terms of costs. Lastly, this is a business with low entry barriers.

The one area to keep a watch on is that the fresh issue is not going to create fresh capex but towards working capital gaps. That is generally a high risk allocation of IPO money and investors must factor that while investing in this IPO.
