- General Corporate Purposes
Revenues of the company have grown from Rs 391 lakhs (FY 2007-08) to Rs 1730 lakhs (FY 2011-12). Though revenue have grown 2% only in FY 2011-12 compared to previous financial year, in the last 6 months ended Sep-12, the revenue growth is good. If we annualize the current year revenues, the growth in revenue for this year (FY 2012-13) would be around 11% compared to previous financial year (FY 2011-12).
Profits have grown from Rs 42.16 Lakhs (FY 2007-08) to Rs 288.72 Lakhs (FY 2011-12). The profit margin is 14.22% in FY 2011-12. The average earnings per share (EPS) for the last 3 fiscal years are Rs 27.85. However EPS for 6 months ending Sep-12 is Rs 10.37 which is low compared to average of previous 3 fiscal years which is a concern.
Recommendation / Investment strategy:
- Financial performance wise company is doing well. Crisil has assigned this IPO rating as 4/5 (Superior) which is a positive sign.
- Post the IPO, on a profit of Rs 1.37 Crores for 6 months ended Sep-12, the P/E ratio would be 16. There are no listed peers to compare this company's performance.
- Though it looks a higher price, one can do moderate investment in this IPO. Post listing on NSE SME, if it such stock is available at lower levels, one can accumulate for medium term investment.
