The company is in a very niche industry that gels with the Make in India initiative of the government. The demand for LED lightings is quite high and being eco-friendly, they also have strong demand traction among the young crowd. What stands out about the company is that over the last 3 years, the company has been consistently doubling its sales each year and that is something that is appreciable, even if it be on a low base. Also, the net margins in the latest year have stabilized at around 10%. This is higher than the 5% margins reported by the company in the previous two years. The latest year has seen return on equity of over 80%, which may not sustain as the equity builds up. Only the latest year ROE is meaningful since till the previous year the company was reported negative reserves and surplus due to defraying of accumulated losses.

How does the stock valuations look like?

How does the stock look on P/E terms? The company has a weighted average EPS of ₹1.48 for the last 3 years while the EPS for the latest year stands at a more realistic ₹8.35, if the annualized EPS of the 9-month period are considered. At a price of 91, the EPS of 8.35 would mean that the IPO is available at a P/E of around 9-=10 times. That is not too expensive, although the real challenge would be how the company maintains the ROE and the net margins over time. However, in terms of the basic business model, the company surely has its bells and whistles in place. Investors should ideally take a view of more than one year on the stock and like most SME IPOs, it would suit the investors with the higher risk appetite only.
