“The company has high profit margins & also reported RoNW of 28.19% in FY21, however valuation is on the higher side, hence we give this IPO a “Subscribe (Long Term)” rating,” said Anand Rathi in a note.
The proceeds from the fresh issue will be utilised towards paying debt, funding a part of the capital expenditure for the new manufacturing facility at Panchla in West Bengal and general corporate purposes.
“With respect to its performance in FY20, its business and profitability increased drastically in the pandemic year. However, we believe that the current business growth and profitability expansion is not sustainable. There is a respectable import market for the company to capture and also a huge export opportunity arising from the ‘China plus one’ strategy, in case the globe adopts this strategy in the post-Covid period. Thus considering the future growth outlook and the demanded premium valuation, we assign a ‘Subscribe with Caution’ rating for the issue,” said Choice Broking.
