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

  • The fall in revenues in the latest year is more due to the downturn in global trade that is visible in the form of weak exports and imports overall from India. That has hit the business volumes of most trade related services, where the company operates.
  • The net margins have been in the range of 3% to 4% on an average, which his considered OK for a company in this industry where operating costs tend to be quite high. Even the ROE ratio of 10% to 12% is the norm in this industry.
  • Being a capital light business, the asset turnover ratio or the asset sweating ratio has been above 3 on a consistent basis. This may not be too representative as here the expenses ratio would matter more than the asset turnover ratio.


The company has latest year EPS of ₹7.04 and weighted average EPS of ₹5.39 for the last 3 years. This makes the company valuation at about 10 times based on past earnings, so on future earnings, it should be more attractive. The slowdown in global trade is temporary and this segment is growing at a rapid pace, so the volumes should grow in tandem. The stock would be a fit for investors with a longer time frame and a higher risk appetite.
