There are few key takeaways from the financials of Avalon Technologies Ltd which can be enumerated as under

  1. In the last 2 years, the revenues have grown at the rate of 13% CAGR. However, as India becomes a bigger part of the China Plus story, this segment is likely to see explosion in top line growth.

  2. The latest year profit margins are much higher than what is normally seen in the case of EMS companies. The PAT margins for the previous year are more in line with industry standards. A lot will depend on the PAT margins that sustain.

  3. The company has maintained an impressive rate of sweating assets as is evident from the asset turnover ratio.

While pricing of the IPO will matter here, what is more critical is the eventual PAT margins that will sustain. It is normally in the range of 3-4%, but anything above 5% can be exceptionally good and value accretive for the IPO. While the top line potential is immense, profitable growth could hold the key.
