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

  1. The company is in a very niche segment with strong visibility in the API, formulations, and the consumer health segment. Its Manforce and Prega News brands are extremely popular in India and that is likely to act as a moat. That is evident in the healthy ratio of net margins and the return on assets.

  2. The robust profit margins for the company comes from its near dominance of the niche segments in the domestic market place. The gradual fall in the asset turnover can be attributed to the higher capital investment in the last couple of years.

While pricing of the IPO will matter here, what is more critical is the eventual PAT margins that will sustain. The India focus of Mankind has helped it maintain robust net margins and that is likely to be value accretive for the company. Eventually, a lot will depend on the pricing and how much is left on the table for the investors. It could be a safe bet, but pricing would hold the key.
