Financial highlights: GEM Enviro Management Ltd

Particulars FY24 FY23 FY22
Net Revenues (₹ in crore) 42.53 32.80 25.51
Sales Growth (%) 29.67% 28.56%

The sales growth in the last 3 years has been steady and growing almost at an even pace. The FY23 sales are nearly 70% higher than the FY21 sales. With the net profits growing steadily, the PAT margins are at 23.56% in the latest year, and with steady net margins at around that level for the last 2 years also. For FY24, the ROE stood at 41.54% and the ROA at 28.02% with both being above average for the industry. These ratios have also been steady over the last 3 years. The sweating ratio, as calculated by the asset turnover ratio, is robust at 1.19X in the latest year. While this is largely a service oriented industry, the margins may matter more than the asset turnover ratio; but ratios are overall robust nevertheless. More importantly, the performance of the company has been growing at a steady pace over the last 3 years and the margins have been quite steady in the last couple of years.

The company has latest year EPS of ₹4.75 and we have not included the weighted  average EPS, since the growth has been quite steady and calibrated. The latest year earnings are being discounted by the IPO price of ₹75 per share at 15-16 times P/E ratio, which is fairly reasonable if you consider the steady growth and the robust margins of the company. Let us also look at how the picture changes if we extrapolate the FY24 numbers. The EPS for the first 9 months of FY24 stands at ₹3.99 per share and if that is annualized, it comes to ₹5.32 per share. This extrapolated FY24 price discounts the IPO price of ₹75 at a more sober P/E ratio range of 14X. 

The company also comes to the table with some qualitative advantages. Its large client base, exiting profile with clients and the service model is intrinsically likely to grow in the coming years. Above all, despite being a small company, its growth and margins are very steady at robust levels. Investors with a risk appetite can look to participate in the IPO, but they may have a longer wait as valuations will depend on quarterly earnings traction. The pricing at the current juncture looks to be fair and may not leave much on the table for the short term. However, this could be an interesting play for the long haul investors in the IPO.
