Recommendation / Investment strategy
- EPS in last 3 years is very high as paid up capital is low, hence one should not look it for comparison purpose. If we consider first 6 months EPS and estimate yearly EPS, it would come to approx Rs 10 per share. On issue price of Rs 30, P/E ratio works out to be 3. Its peers TVS Electronics EPS is 67.12 (highest) and Compuage Infocom P/E ratio is 8.43 (Lowest). Hence, its issue price at Rs 30 is reasonably priced.
- Fourth Dimension Solutions Limited revenues have grown aggressively in last 3 years, however generates thin margins of around 2% only. I would have been excited if margins are on higher side. Investors with high risk appetite can invest in this IPO.
