There are few key takeaways from the financials of  SignatureGlobal (India) Ltd which can be enumerated as under

  1. In the last 2 years, post the pandemic impact, the revenues growth has been robust. However, the challenge for the company is that the sales traction is still not translating into bottom line growth. The company continues to make losses even in the latest year and it is only in the current year that the net worth of the company has turned positive. Hence most of the traditional valuation measures like net margins, ROE and P/E ratio may not be too meaningful in this context.
  2. One way to look at the company would be based on the market cap to sales ratio. On revenues of ₹1,586 crore, the market cap post listing translates into ₹5,410 crore, implying a market cap to sales multiple of around 3.5X. It is tough to fathom why investors would pay such a high multiple.
  3. The company has held a very low level of asset sweating as evidenced by the asset turnover ratio. However, that is understandable as costs tend to be front-ended in this business.

While pricing of the IPO does matter here, what is more critical is the eventual PAT margins that will sustain and the ROE that can be held by the company. For now, it still remains a loss making company, so the IPO has to be seen as a bet on the future of affordable housing in the Delhi / NCR region. It is a high risk call and investors must take a call accordingly.
