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

  • The revenues growth has been quite erratic and this can be largely attributed to the cyclicality of the demand for micro irrigation products. That risk of cyclicality is likely to continue  and even the net profit margins are still quite low.
     
  • While net margins of the company have been on the lower side, the ROE at 7.4% and the ROA at 2.06% are also relatively tepid. This could make it tougher for the company to justify higher valuations.
     
  • The asset turnover ratio or the sweating ratio has been persistently below 1 and that could be due to the front-ending of outlays in this business. With scale, the impact should be visible on profits too. However, higher ROA may be needed as proxy for the asset turnover ratio.

 

The company has latest year EPS of ₹1.15 and due to the rapid growth and the erratic historic numbers, the previous EPS may not be too relevant. The latest year earnings are being discounted by the IPO price of ₹54 by nearly 46-47 times P/E ratio. One has to look at the P/E ratio from two perspectives. Firstly, the demand for the products tends to be cyclical and that is unlikely to change in the short run. Economies of scale will take some time. However, the IPO does have some qualitative merits like a knowledgeable dealer team, technical expertise, and strong networks in the irrigation business. Investors with a higher level of risk appetite and a longer time frame can look at this IPO of Polysil Irrigation Systems Ltd from a buy and hold perspective.
