The profit margins have been very moderate at above 4.32% in the latest year but at relatively lower levels in the previous years. Even the return on equity has been in excess of 40% in the current year although it was lower in previous years. While sales growth has been robust in the latest year, it has been erratic in the year before that. However, the profit growth has been steadier in the last 2 years. Investors must remember that this is a traditionally a low margin and high risk business. However, the company has a healthy asset turnover ratio as a measure of asset sweating. That can justify valuations for the company.

The weighted average EPS of the company for the last 3 years is around ₹4.54 and that makes the company reasonably valued at the upper band of ₹103 per share. In terms of valuation, the stock valuation is over 20 times forward earnings, so a lot of the story is already in the price. However, growth remains the big boost for the company and that could make it an interesting play for investors with a higher risk appetite and with longer time frame.
