There are few key takeaways from the financials of MCON Rasayan India Ltd which can be enumerated as under

  1. The growth of the company has been quite erratic. While the sales have doubled over the last two years, the entire growth came in FY22. This could be due to capacity slack, but this is an area to focus on in the coming quarters.

  2. The PAT margins in a best case scenario are just a tad above 2% and that is not too encouraging, although building materials and chemicals tends to be a low margin business. This, combined with erratic RONW, could impact valuations post listing.

  3. Asset turnover ratio is above 1, which is a good signal in an intensive industry. However, when the RONW is already erratic, the additional capital raised by the company through this IPO would start to put pressure on its return ratios.

Overall, the numbers do look like a mixed bag at this point of time.

Some areas to watch out

There are some areas to watch out for in this IPO. For instance, if you look at the FY22 numbers, the raw material cost is 58% of sales, which his understandable. However, other expenses have consistently been around 30% of sales. Secondly, the net cash from operations have been consistently negative for the last 3 financial years, which means there is very little internal cash that the company is generating. The creditor outstanding amounts of Rs4.55 crore hint at challenges on the working capital management front. Investors may have to take a cautious and measured view of investing in the IPO.
