Here are some of the key takeaways from the financials of the company for the last 3 years.

  • The revenues have grown at a steady pace in the last 2 years and hence the latest year revenue data shows a secular growth trend, which is a positive signal. The top line sales have more than doubled in the last 2 fiscal years. The PAT margins are relatively strong in the latest year at 10.29% and the dilution could reduce this number.
  • While net margins of the company have been relatively volatile and rather robust, it is more because the company has assured robust margins in this business. In addition, the ROE at 31.14% and the return on assets or ROA at 9.16% in the latest year are very attractive and stable.
  • The asset turnover ratio or the sweating ratio has been under 1, but with robust return on assets, that is not a problem. Also, as the sales picks up in the coming quarters, this ratio should only get better.


The company has latest year EPS of ₹2.96 and even through previous data may not really be comparable, the weighted average EPS of last 3 years stand at ₹1.75. The latest year earnings are being discounted by the IPO price of ₹77 per share at 25-26 times P/E ratio. However, if we annualize the latest 7-month EPS of ₹3.28, we are looking at full year EPS of around ₹5.62 for FY25 and on that price, the P/E ratio is a lot more reasonable at 13.7X. With its established products and client base, the stock is definitely in a business where the investors can take a long term bet on the stock.  Investors with a higher risk appetite and a longer time frame can surely look at this IPO.
