There are few key takeaways from the financials of Pyramid Technoplast Ltd which can be enumerated as under

  1. In the last 2 years, the revenues growth has been robust averaging over 20%, indicating the growing demand for specialized polymer products. Purely on the strength of the prospects of the sector and the performance of the group, the pricing does look like it has left something on the table for investors. Even the P/E ratio looks reasonable at these levels.
  2. The last 3 years profit margins and the return on assets as well as the return on equity are extremely competitive in the industry group. While the net margins have hovered around the 6% mark, the ROA has hovered close to 14% while the ROE is extremely attractive at nearly 30% in all the years.
  3. The company has maintained an impressive rate of sweating assets as is evident from the asset turnover ratio. It has consistently averaged over 2.0X, which is a very good sign for a capital intensive business like polymer products.


While pricing of the IPO does matter here, what is more critical is the eventual PAT margins and the eventual ROE that will sustain. A lot will depend on how the company is able to scale up and yet maintain its profitability margins. Purely from the perspective of the model, the product positioning, and the track record, it is an issue worth investing from a long term perspective. However, it is better suited to investors with a higher risk appetite.
