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

  • Revenues have been erratic after leaping in FY22, they actually fell in FY23. However, the FY23 revenues are still nearly 4 times that of FY21 revenues,  which shows a good secular growth over the last 2 years. Profits have been steady in the last two years, despite the sharp fall in sales revenues.
  • While net margins of the company have been relatively volatile and rather low, it is more because the costs have been front-ended. However, the ROE and return on assets in the latest year are more stable, especially the ROE at over 28% for the latest year.
  • The asset turnover ratio or the sweating ratio has been low at 0.60 and that is one area for the company to improve upon to sustain the valuations in the future. With scale, the impact should be visible on profits too. However, with ROA will hold the key.


The company has latest year EPS of ₹3.77 and even through previous data may not really be comparable, the weighted average EPS of last 3 years stand at ₹3.23. The latest year earnings are being discounted by the IPO price at 31-32 times P/E ratio. One has to look at the P/E ratio from two perspectives. Firstly, the half year EPS for FY24 is much higher at ₹4.30, which makes the valuations look a lot more reasonable if the EPS is annualized and extrapolated. However, the real story is that the story becomes a lot more enticing once the economies of scale start to reflect on the bottom line numbers. That is likely to take some time, but this is an area that is worth betting on for the next few years, considering the qualitative advantages that the company already enjoys. Investors with a higher risk appetite and a longer time frame can surely look at this IPO.
