Financial highlights of Saakshi Medtech and Panels Ltd

The table below captures the key financials of Saakshi Medtech and Panels Ltd for the last 3 completed financial years.

Data Source: Company DRHP filed with SEBI (# - 9 months data annualized)

Here are some key takeaways from the financial numbers of Saakshi Medtech and Panels Ltd as captured below.

  • The company has reported net margins of 9-10% in the last two years, which is fairly impressive while the ROE at around 30% has also been consistent in the latest two fiscal years. The latest fiscal has been annualized based on 9 months data, but that should still be fairly representative.
  • If one looks at the annualized EPS for FY23 at ₹8.41, then the P/E ratio works out to around 10-12 times latest earnings, which is a reasonable valuation for the company with strong growth and robust margins on equity and sales. The high levels of ROE should help this level of P/E sustain in the future too.
  • The asset sweating based on the asset turnover ratio has been hovering consistently above 1 and that is a good sign. Considering it is a niche engineering business, an improvement in this ratio should be on the cards.

To sum it up, the company looks like an interesting play on a niche engineering area. Valuations are reasonable with scope for upsides for the patient investor. However, the volatile nature of the SME business makes the company higher on the risk scale, so investors must be prepared for that. It could be a calculated risk call for the investor.
