Here are some of the key takeaways from the financials of the company for the last 3 years; i.e., from FY22 to FY24, being the latest year. 

•    The revenues over the last 3 years have been fairly volatile in terms of growth with the company showing negative sales growth in FY23. However, if you look at the sales of FY23 and compare with FY21, then the net revenues are still higher by 75% during this period. That is a robust story. However, net profits have shown moderate growth traction; despite the PAT margins improving over the last two years.

•    While net margins of the company are modest at 6.28% in the latest year, the margins have grown modestly in the last 3 years. The return on equity (ROE) stands at 31.07% in FY23, while the return on assets (ROA) is moderate at 4.76% in FY23. The numbers have been fairly steady in the last 2 years.

•    The asset turnover ratio or the sweating ratio has been modest in the latest year at 0.76X and that is not too positive, especially if you consider that the return on assets or ROA has also not been too attractive.  However, sweating ratio is likely to improve as sales builds up in the coming quarters.

The company has latest year EPS of ₹3.10 and we have not included the weighted  average EPS, since the growth has been quite steady. The latest year earnings are being discounted by the IPO price of ₹92 per share at 29-30 times P/E ratio. That looks slightly on the higher, especially if you consider the consistently tepid net margins on the stock. The data is up to FY23 and if you take the 10 months EPS for FY24 of ₹2.44, then it gives an annualized EPS of ₹2.93 per share. That means, even on extrapolated earnings, the stock would only look a little more expensive than what it is now.

To be fair, Falcon Technoprojects India Ltd some bring some intangible advantages to the table. It has established relationships, a strong management bandwidth and a narrative of improving operating efficiency. However, this is a segment that does see a lot of competition from the unorganized sector. Investors in the IPO must be prepared for a higher level of risk and a waiting period of over a year on this IPO. Before investing in this IPO, investors are advised to focus more on the risk factors, since that is where the valuation catch is.
