The company is of very recent origin so it is tough to take a call on the financials of the company over a 3 year period, although the company has shown good traction in sales growth in the last 2 years. However, the key factor to watch out for here is the very focused market and the ability to tap the retail and the institutional market for spices and atta. The vast reach of the company and its strong franchise in the South are added advantages. Valuations would eventually depend on the pricing of the IPO.
