Considering 13.29 to 21.07 P/E ratio of Jet Infraventure IPO for the issue price of Rs 125 seems to be high. Post the issue, Net Asset Value (NAV) would be Rs 47.91 and on a issue price of Rs 125 is priced high.
  • Jet Infraventure IPO has several negative factors. Though company revenues grew in the last 5 years, there are a few key things to be noted. Zero revenues in last year FY 2013, issue price being very high etc., are some of the major concerns.  We should wait and watch the performance for another 1-2 years and if this company shows consistent performance, one can look at investing in such company with discounted price.

  1. Thank you for the detailed analysis.

    At the present market senario, Even if they offered their shares @75/Share, I think it’s a risk to invest in real estate sector.

    Well, it’s just my opinion. I have seen the real estate share going down day by day in the past (Not tracking at present).
