Here are some of the key takeaways from the financials of the company for the last 3 years; i.e., from FY21 to FY23, being the latest year. 

  • The revenues over the last 3 years have been extremely erratic, falling sharply in FY22 and then rising sharply from a low base. It is tough to figure out what is the sustainable revenues for the company and that may need some more quarters of data. The company has negative reserves in all the years.
  • Net margins are too low in the latest year at 0.43% and here again it is very erratic. Even the ROE and the ROA are low, but even this is magnified due to the equity value having been eroded in the last 3 years. Hence, ROE data must be taken with a pinch of salt by investors in this case.
  • The asset turnover ratio or the sweating ratio is relatively strong, but there are some red flags on the balance sheet items of the company. For example, on the liabilities side, in FY23, over 50% of the balance sheet is accounted for by short term borrowings and current liabilities. If you look at the FY24 data, then the sum of long term borrowings and short term borrowings  are nearly 60% of the balance sheet. 
  • Also, the assets side is equally intriguing. For FY23, nearly 85% of the total assets are represented by trade receivables, intangible assets, and other current assets. If you look at FY24, then 70% of the assets side is advances given and trade receivables. That surely raises some red flags about the robustness of the business model.

Due to the erratic nature of earnings and the red flags on the balance sheet composition, the traditional valuation parameters do not seem to fit in. The investors will have to really evaluate if they want to invest in this IPO. The question marks are too many and investors should be cautious about these.
