1) On the upper price band of Rs 400 and EPS of Rs 9.14 for FY20, the P/E ratio works out to be 44x.

2) For last 3 years EPS of Rs 8.28, the PE ratio is 48x.

3) If we annualize its 6 months ending Sep-20 EPS, the P/E works out to be 4x.

4) Means, the company is asking the upper price band of Rs 400 in the P/E range of 4x to 48x.

4) There are no  listed peers in the same line of business, hence the issue price cannot be ascertained whether it is under priced or overpriced. If we consider 44x P/E for FY20, the issue is aggressively priced and if we consider only 6 months ending Sep-20, annualize for FY21 and consider the P/E of 4, the IPO premium is under priced.

Nureca Limited IPO – Should you invest?

Nureca Limited is a consistent growing healthcare and wellness products distributor in India. It has shown strong revenue in the last 3.5 years. However, its margins declined in the last 3 years. Its 6 months ending Sep-20 show high margins. There are chances that corporates would show high growth in margins, especially when they are coming up with special events like public issue of shares. If we keep this aspect aside and assume the margin growth is consistent and would continue, high risk investors can invest in this IPO for medium to long term.
