Here are some of the key takeaways from the financials of the company for the last 3 years.

  • The revenues have been flat in the latest year, but has grown sharply in the previous year. Overall, the 2-year growth does look tepid. The PAT margins are relatively sober in the latest year at 3.62% and the dilution could reduce this number.
  • While net margins of the company have been relatively subdued, the return on equity (ROE) at 36.75% and the return on assets (ROA) at 6.08% in the latest year are very attractive and robust. That is more due to the low equity base of the company.
  • The asset turnover ratio or the sweating ratio has been above 1.6X, which is attractive. In addition, when you add the ROA at 6.08%, the future impact on the ROE could be quite substantial; especially once the sales start to pick in the coming quarters.


The company has latest year EPS of ₹7.74 and even though previous data may not really be comparable, the weighted average EPS of last 3 years stand at ₹4.92. The latest year earnings are being discounted by the IPO price of ₹45 per share at 5.81 times P/E ratio. However, if we annualize the 6-month EPS of ₹3.93 for FY24, we are looking at relatively more reasonable valuations based on forward earnings numbers. The company is located in the erstwhile textile capital of India and the market is huge. Textile sector is seeing a revival, thanks to the PLI scheme. The company may be small, but may be a high risk call for the investor in the textile space in India.
