Financial highlights of Mangalam Alloys Ltd

Here is what you need to know about the financials and valuations of Mangalam Alloys Ltd.

  • The company is yet to report full numbers for FY23, so FY22 is the last financials we have. It may be a tough call to take a view on the IPO based on data that is nearly 18 months old.
  • The company has shown steady sales in the last 2 years, but the company continues to make losses. This makes it slightly tough to take a call on the valuation of the stock as losses make it tough to bring about a valuation opinion on the stock.

In the absence of key latest financials, it would be best to tread carefully since the last known numbers are still loss making and the data is too old to take a call. Investors can either wait for the full data for FY23 to be announced or they can skip the issue for now and later look at taking positions once the stock is listed on the bourses.
