  1. Exclusive Childrens’ Hospital may not be a viable proposition. Even Apollo Hospitals took a lot many years to break even. In Andhra Pradesh, TTD manages a world class Children’s Hospital. Why go elsewhere? Let us review its performance next year. One of your readers already commented about inflated Net Profit. No Hurry!

  2. Suresh ji, I see two red flags in this.
    1. Latest 9 months profit of 16% is more than double of trailing 3 years average. There is a possibility of exaggeration as 9 months accounts are unaudited and any year end provisions might not be accounted for.
    2. Fully pricing of the issue above 100 PE and walking with large premium with large chunk of the proceeds by promoters gives alarm.
    3. If the company is not able to keep 16% of the profits in the future, the share price will nosedive from the issue price.

      1. We cannot compare it with Apollo Hospital.
        For KIMS, it is 54
        Hence, the offer price is very high.

        1. We cannot compare only the lower ones. In such case every IPO would be over priced. One need to compare the highest and lowest and industry average and then take a call.
