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

  • The revenue spike has been sharp in the last two years, although that is due to a very low base in FY21. That also makes the numbers not comparable over the last 3 years. The latest year has seen a near 6-fold growth in sales over a two year period.
  • The net margins have been in the range of 12-13% in the latest year. However, here again, the comparisons are tough since the company has seen a sharp spike in margins only in the latest year, so sustainable markets will be the key. Even ROE is only meaningful for the latest year of FY23, and once again sustenance will be the key.
  • Being a capital light business, the asset turnover ratio or the asset sweating ratio has been above 2 on a consistent basis. This may not be too representative as here the expenses ratio would matter more than the asset turnover ratio, in this sector.


The company has latest year EPS of ₹16.03 and weighted average EPS of ₹8.93 for the last 3 years. However, a lot will depend on what level the EPS sustains in the long run since growth has been quite robust only in the latest year. By latest year valuations, the company looks reasonably priced at about 8 times earnings or P/E ratio, so it is the sustainable EPS that will matter. The focus would be on the next few quarters. This is generally a non-cyclical business so investors must keep the competition from the unorganized market in view. It is suited for the investors willing to take on higher risk and wait for longer period of time.
