IPO of Fusion Micro Finance Valuation
Fusion Micro Finance IPO price band is Rs 350 to 368 per share.
If we consider FY2022 EPS, the P/E ratio works out to be 140x.
If we consider last 3 years weighted EPS, the P/E ratio works out to be 75x.
Margins for Q1 FY23 are abnormal and if we annualize them, the P/E works out to be 10x. Ideally, one should not consider such abnormal profits into consideration during valuations.
Means company is asking for the issue price in P/E of 75x to 140x. There are listed peers like Ujjivan Small Finance Bank trading at P/E 342x (Highest) and Credit Access Grameen Bank trading at P/E 20x (Lowest) and industry average P/E is 114x. Hence Fusion Micro Finance IPO share price is overpriced.

Fusion Micro Finance IPO Review – Should you invest or avoid?
After going through all these points, you might be wondering whether Fusion Micro Finance IPO is good or bad for investment?
Company is engaged in providing financial services to women entrepreneurs belonging to the economically and socially deprived section of the society with a strong rural focus and pan India presence. It has shown strong revenue growth in the last 3 years.
On the other side, its margins are on declining mode. Its Q1 FY23 margins are very high which I feel should not be considered while doing the valuation of the company unless these are sustained in the coming quarters.
Its risky IPO considering that it is aggressively priced. If we take any bank, P/E is priced between 20x to 50x of their earnings, however, this company is asking for P/E ratio of 75x to 140x.
Should I invest in such high priced company that too when the margins are on declining mode? Can I wait for some more time to make a decision when it might be available at discounted price post listing? Yes, I would wait. I am not in a hurry.
