The company has reported net margins of 13.73% in the current year, whereas in previous years the net margins were closer to the range of 7%. Considering the rapid growth, the latest numbers may be more meaningful than the historical numbers. This business has risks in that there is a fairly large informal cottage industry that is into this business. However, this company can be a good bet on the formalization of this side of the business. Also, the ROE is consistently in the range of 30% to 40%, which his very attractive. Also, if you look at the sales trend of the company, the sales are up more 3-fold over the last 3 years. More importantly, the growth in sales has been steady and secular.

Based on the P/E model applied to the latest year ,the company is at less than 13 times earning and much more attractive on forward earnings. The fresh funds are going to be deployed for the Maharashtra plant so the allocation of funds is going to be value accretive. The company does look like a good bet on the recycling space and the increased formalization as it becomes a critical part of green usage of resources. However, investors would be advised to be ready for a higher risk appetite and a longer holding period in the IPO of Hi-Green Carbon Ltd.
