Recommendation / Investment Strategy

  • At a issue price of Rs 14 and EPS for FY 2013-14 of Rs 0.12, P/E Ratio works out to be 117. At an issue price of Rs 14 and last 3 years average EPS of Rs 0.07, P/E Ratio works out to be 200.Means company is asking for P/E ratio of 117 to 200. There is no listed company in this field to compare the issue price. However issue price seems to be high as it is demanding Rs 14 per share for a company which has operating history of 2.5 years.   
  • Funny Software Limited revenues show good improvement. However, such performance should be seen in long term.  Negative factors include short term operating history, negative cashflows etc.,
  • Owing to short term operating history, one should wait and watch the performance for another 1 year. If one can see consistent revenue growth and increase in profit margins after that, they can subscribe at later point of time. Investors can avoid this IPO at this point of time.
