Here are some key takeaways from the financial numbers of Master Components Ltd as captured below.

  • The company has reported net margins of 8.18% in the current year, whereas in previous years the net margins were consistently around 5%. It remains to be seen at what level the net margins can be sustained, since the overall net margins in the commodity nature of business are generally in single digits only.
  • The return on equity is relatively more attractive at 14.68%, but again, that is only true of the latest year with the ROE being in single digits in the previous years. So, here again it will boil down to what level of ROE is actually sustainable. The sustainable level of ROE will eventually be a key input in the P/E ratio.
  • The P/E ratio based on the latest financial numbers are in the range of 26-28X. That is a relatively rich P/E for the commoditized business and that does raise a question on whether there would be something on the table for the investor, or it needs a wait.

The sum and substance here is that there may not be much scope on the table for the investors on listing and they may have to wait for a longer time and also assume a higher level of risk in this IPO. For now, the pricing makes the stock look fully valued and that is something for the investors to keep in mind.
