There are few key takeaways from the financials of TVS Supply Chain Solutions Ltd which can be enumerated as under

  1. In the last 2 years, the revenues growth has been robust showing the potential that the logistics management sector has. Purely on the strength of the prospects of the sector and the pedigree of the group, the pricing does look like it has left something on the table for investors, since profit track is only available for the latest year.
  2. The latest year profit margins and the return on assets are not really comparable since the3 company was making losses in the previous two years. However, this is a business where a lot of costs get front-ended but once these costs are defrayed, the profits can multiply in a geometric manner. That is the big bet int this case.
  3. The company has maintained an impressive rate of sweating assets as is evident from the asset turnover ratio. It has consistently averaged above 1.5X, which is a very good sign for a capital intensive business like logistics management.


While pricing of the IPO does matter here, what is more critical is the eventual PAT margins that will sustain. For now, the signals are good. In the past, the group has shown very good traction in terms of execution of large projects and that will work in their favour. A lot will depend on how the company is able to scale with the use of digital technologies. Purely from the perspective of the model and the track record, it is an issue worth investing from a long term perspective. It is a bet on the India story!
