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

  • The revenues have grown at a quick pace in the last 2 years and in the latest year FY23, the total sales have nearly tripled over FY21. More importantly, this has been accompanied by growth in the net profit net profit margins (PAT margins).
  • While net margins of the company are fairly attractive at 25.98%, it has fallen over the previous year. The return on equity (ROE) stands at 27.45% in FY23, while the return on assets (ROA) is robust at 17.06% in FY23.
  • The asset turnover ratio or the sweating ratio has been very low at around 0.60X although in this kind of service business it may not matter much. However, this sweating ratio also gets supported by the robust levels of return on assets (ROA).


The company has latest year EPS of ₹2.71 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 ₹60 per share at 22-23 times P/E ratio. One has to look at the P/E ratio from two perspectives. 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 ₹2.82 per share and when extrapolated to full-year EPS of ₹5.64, it translates into a more reasonable P/E ratio of 10-11 times earnings.

The concerns on Beacon Trusteeship Ltd IPO could be something slightly different. It is a comprehensive debenture trusteeship service provider, an area that has been traditionally dominated by banks like IDBI, Axis and Central Bank. That will continue to be a risk for the company. Secondly, it has been a high volume and low margin business with a high risk quotient. Thirdly, the utilization of proceeds of the fresh portion of the IPO does not inspire much confidence, especially using IPO funds to purchase new office. Investors will have to carefully evaluate the pros and cons before taking a view on this IPO.
