The profit margins have been very robust at above 15% in the latest year and at much higher levels in previous years. Even the return on equity has been in excess of 40% in all the three years, which paves the way for more attractive valuations for the company. While sales growth has been robust, it is the profit growth that has been relatively erratic, but that is more due to the supply chain constraints created by the pandemic. Investors must remember that this is a traditionally high margin business. However, the company needs to build on its asset turnover ratio as a measure of asset sweating. That needs to improve.

The weighted average EPS of the company for the last 3 years is around ₹5.20 and that makes the company reasonably valued at the upper band of ₹61 per share. In terms of valuation, the stock valuation is less than 10 times forward earnings, so it is not too expensive. However, it remains a high risk investment for the investors and only for those with a longer term investment perspective.
