The net profit margins have been extremely low at less than 1%, which his extremely low even for a pure retail player. For a manufacturer, the margins are very low in the latest year. One area of concern is the total borrowings which is at over ₹67 crore and that is tough to justify with the low net profit levels. The average return on net worth (RONW) will find it tough to justify valuations.

In terms of valuation, the upper price band of ₹87 discounts the weighted average EPS of the last 3 years by nearly 100 times. This is the kind of valuations that even big established in the kitchenware space do not command, so the valuation does look quite imposing. Also, this is a market where there is a huge unorganized sector and the organized sector is already in the hands of large corporates. In that kind of business, maintaining margins would be tough which is evident in the numbers. Investors must note this is a high risk stock with a steep price. Also, short to medium term upsides on this IPO may be limited.
