The profit margins have fairly robust at around 9.5% in the latest year and at much higher levels in previous years. Even the return on equity has been in excess of 30% in all the three years, which paves the way for more attractive valuations for the company. While sales growth has been robust, the profit growth has also been very impressive. Investors must remember that this is a traditionally high margin business despite a lot of investments having to be front-ended. However, the company can take solace from its impressive asset turnover ratio as a measure of asset sweating, which is around the 2X levels.

The weighted average EPS of the company for the last 3 years is around ₹20.85 and that makes the company very attractively valued at the upper band of ₹118 per share. In terms of valuation, the stock valuation is less than 5 times forward earnings, so it is not too expensive. However, this is a business that is about implementation and there are big names with large balance sheets already foraying into this business. Oriana Power Ltd is likely to see stiff competition so this for the investors with a longer term time frame and higher risk taking ability.
