The company has reported net margins of 6% to 6.5% in the recent two years, whereas it was under 3% in the years prior to that. That is a reasonable margin for the manufacturing business, but ROE would be more suggestive in such cases. The return on equity in this case is more than 100% but that can be rather misleading. Till the previous year, the company had a negative net worth due to the accumulated losses and it is only in the current year that the net worth has turned positive. Hence, due to the cumulative impact, the net worth is optically low, which presents an incorrect picture. Hence we have to wait for the net worth to stabilize at higher levels to get a clear picture of the ROE>

The traditional P/E model becomes difficult to apply in the case of CPR Shapers Ltd as the company has delivered a relatively better performance only in the latest year. Also, the company had negative net worth till the previous year. This is a very niche play with a very limited market and one cannot expect a massive scaling up in the segment. Also, this is an industry with few entry barriers and hence competition can emerge at short notice. The investment call would be based on the kind of risk that investors are willing to take; and in this case the risk appear to outweigh the rewards. Long term sustainable financial metrics are missing due to negative net worth till the previous year. It is a high risk call that investors will have to take in this IPO.
