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 previous year, but has been lower in the latest year ended FY23. However, it remains to be seen how the growth in sales is sustained over the longer term.
  • The net margins have grown to over 8% only in the latest year from much lower levels in the previous two years. This raises the issue of a sustainable PAT margins for the company. However, due to the low equity base, the ROE has been extremely attractive.
  • 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 as well as the margins that can be sustained over the long term.


The company has latest year EPS of ₹6.81 and that translates into a current P/E of around 12.3 times. That is not too high for the pharma sector, but it will be a function of how much of margins the company can extract from value addition. The stock remains a high risk bet on the mid-scale pharma segment and investors must be willing to take on higher levels of risk to invest in the stock.
