There are few key takeaways from the financials of Tata Technologies Ltd which can be enumerated as under

  1. In the last 3 years, revenue growth has been steady and also growing. That is evident from the expansion of the revenue pool in consonance with the growth in the automotive, aerospace, and industrial machinery business. With a focus on green and futuristic transformation, the company looks poised to expand revenue growth further.
  2. The PAT margin at above 13% and the ROE at above 20% are very attractive by comparable technology engineering company standards. Even the return on assets is robust at 12% and this allows the company to justify higher P/E ratios even in the future on a sustained basis.
  3. The company had below average sweating of assets, as measured by the asset turnover ratio, but that is not too relevant to this business. Here the net margins and ROE would matter more, especially at a time when IT margins are under pressure.


Let us turn to the valuations part. On the latest year standalone EPS of ₹15.37, the stock is available in the IPO at a P/E of 32.5 times, which is attractive if the current growth rate can be sustained in profits and improved up on in the future. However, on a weighted average EPS basis, the P/E is slightly higher at 40.8X earnings. That should sober further if you consider forward earnings. The robust net margins and the ROE should help support the valuations at current levels for the stock.

Let us also look at some of the qualitative aspects of the stock, which will have a bearing on the IPO price performance. The company brings to the table deep expertise and insights into the automotive industry; both from a product standpoint, requirements standpoint and the availability of IT solutions stack. Also, its focus on EVs should make it more valuable. Its digital capabilities are also boosted by proprietary accelerators. Tata Technologies has a client base stretching across OEMs and new energy vehicle companies globally. Above all, the brand of the Tata group will be an added advantage for the stock. There is also likely to be a scarcity value to the stock due to a Tata group IPO after 19 years. Investors can seriously look at this IPO to participate in a true blue international tech engineering company with a global footprint. It can be a good bet for the long run.
