Financial highlights of Owais Metal and Mineral Processing Ltd

The company, Owais Metal and Mineral Processing Ltd, was only incorporated in the year 2022 and hence the full year financials are only available for the year FY23. Obviously, a 1 year financial history is too short a period to take a view on the stock, and we will require not less than 3 years of data to take an informed view. For FY23, the company has made a small loss and it is only in the first 9 months of FY24 that it has shown profits. Hence, the data is insufficient to take any informed view on the valuations story.

However, one can look at the qualitative story of the company in this case. Owais Metal and Mineral Processing Ltd seems to enjoy some qualitative moat in the industry. It already has a vast captive client base and that is holding them in good stead even after their conversion to a public limited company. Apart from a fully integrated manufacturing facility, the company also has a very well developed distribution network. Investors wanting to put money in the IPO must take a risk in the absence of a history of financial information available in the RHP.
