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 the previous year growth has been tepid. In the latest year, the revenues have jumped more than 3-fold, which has taken the revenues to a new plane altogether.
  • The net margins have been in the range of 1-2% in the latest year. However, here again, the comparisons are tough since the company profits and top line got a big boost only in the latest year. Prior to that it was tepid. However, the latest year ROE is quite attractive at 30.66% and that should help the stock to sustain valuations.
  • Being a capital light business, the asset turnover ratio or the asset sweating ratio has been above 4 in the latest year, which is not too surprising. 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 ₹2.56 and weighted average EPS of ₹1.46 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 fairly well priced, so it is the sustainable EPS that will matter. The P/E ratio at 27.35X on the issue price, really does not leave much on the table for the investor on listing. 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. The IPO of Sheetal Universal Ltd is ideally suited for the investors willing to take on higher risk and who can wait for longer.
