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

  1. The revenue growth has been extremely robust and has stayed around the 15% mark on an average in the last 3 years, despite the growing base. PAT margins of 3-4% are the upper end of the EMS segment and if the company can maintain that kind of net margins, it would be supportive of valuations. The company has reported attractive return on net worth (RONW) which would be a more reflective data point in this segment. In short, growth and profitability are supportive of the stock.

  2. EMS is traditionally a low margin but high volume business and with its pedigree, backing of Cyient Ltd and the institutional participation likely in the IPO, it should see more interest in this space. Its EMS focus is also more niche compared to the more generic EMS offerings in the market. That should justify higher valuations.

  3. One area where the company can do better is the rate of sweating assets as is evident from the rather asset turnover ratio being below 1 and also consistently falling. The other area of concern is the high debt levels, with the total debt consistently at 2 times to 3 times the net worth. It remains to be seen how much funds are used to pare debt.

In terms of the weighted average EPS of Cyient DLM Ltd over the last 3 years, it is a little over ₹10 per share. So, the upper price band would peg the P/E ratio at less than 30X the diluted capital post IPO. If you compare with the kind of valuations that EMS companies are getting in India, this would classify on the lower end, so the price does leave something on the table for the investor.

However, like any technology IPO, the risks are high and it is meant for investors with a higher risk appetite as well as a longer holding period. For investors who missed the EMS stories in the past, this is a good opportunity.
