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

  • The revenue spike has been sharp in the latest year, although that is due to a very low base. That also makes the numbers not comparable over the last 3 years. The latest year has seen a near 7-fold growth in sales.
  • The net margins have been in the range of 11-12% in the latest year. However, here again, the comparisons are tough since the company had been making net losses till FY22 and hence margins are tough to calculate. Even ROE is only meaningful for the latest year of FY23 as the net worth was negative in the previous two years.
  • Being a capital light business, the asset turnover ratio or the asset sweating ratio has been above 1 on a consistent basis. This may not be too representative as here the expenses ratio would matter more than the asset turnover ratio, in this sector.


The company has latest year EPS of ₹91.08 and weighted average EPS of ₹45.85 for the last 3 years. However, a lot will depend on what level the EPS sustains in the long run since growth has been quite robust only in the latest year. By latest year valuations, the company looks reasonably priced, so it is the sustainable EPS that will matter. The focus would be on the next few quarters. This is generally a cyclical and low margin business so investors must keep that risk factor while investing. It is suited for the investors willing to take on higher risk and wait for longer.
