Data Source: Company DRHP filed with SEBI

The company has reported net margins of 8.8% in the latest year and it has been much lower on an average if you consider the previous 3 years. That is not a bad net margins for a company that is largely into custom made products where margins tend to be dictated by the bulk buyers. This is a business where the time to build a brand and credibility in the market is quite high and that is the early investment that the company has already made. That will be an intangible that would work in favour of the company. The challenge for the company would be more on servicing its large capital base, especially its equity base. That is evident from the sub 8% levels of ROE. That is not likely to be too supportive of valuations for the stock of the company.

Before we get into the P/E evaluation, there are some concerns on the asset heavy nature of the business. On an average, the asset base is nearly 3 times the size of sales revenue base and that is not going to be helpful for the asset turnover ratio or the asset utilization efficiency ratio of the company. In fact, the one factor that is actually impacting the ROE of the company is the low asset utilization ratio. The valuation story also has some challenges. appears to be relatively favourable. The weighted average EPS of the last 3 years has been around ₹1.45 while the latest EPS has been around ₹2.32 per share. Either ways, the P/E is not expensive but the high asset base makes the model risky. Investors in the IPO should be willing to take on higher risk and have a much longer waiting period perspective.
