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

  1. In the last 2 years, the revenues growth has been robust and also consistent at around 20%. The area of precision testing instruments is also gaining ground in recent years. Purely on the strength of the prospects of the sector and the past performance of the group, the pricing does look like it has left something on the table for investors. With weighted average EPS of ₹12.3, the valuations are closer to the range of 30-33 times P/E ratio. Can that be justified by the margins reported?
  2. The PAT margins have been consistent in the range of 8.5% to 10%. That is a good level for a capital intensive business that Rishabh runs. But, that also means that the ROE of the company is around 12% to 14%, which would make it tough to justify the P/E of over 30 times earnings. That is also substantially higher than the growth of 20%.
  3. The company has maintained moderately high rate of sweating assets as is evident from the asset turnover ratio. It has consistently averaged above 0.8X, which is a good sign for a capital intensive business. However, this ratio has to go above 1 to be actually able to positively influence the ROE.


While pricing of the IPO does matter here, what is more critical is the eventual PAT margins that will sustain and the ROE that will hold in the future. For now, the signals are good. The company has emerged as a global testing solutions provider and that speaks of the quality of products as it reaches out to over 70 countries. This segment is likely to be one of the big beneficiaries of rapid industrial growth. Investors can look at this company as a good long term option. The holding period has to be longer to factor in the higher risks of valuation!
