Valuation and Outlook

If we annualize nine months of FY23 earnings and attribute it to the post-IPO paid-up capital of the company, the issue is priced at a P/E of around 32.2x. In terms of P/BV, the issue is priced at 4.80x based on its post-IPO NAV of Rs 59.38 per share and a P/BV of 13.15 based on its NAV of Rs 21.67 as of December 31, 2022 (at the upper price band). When we measure market cap to sales, the issue is available almost five times.

There are no exact comparable companies currently listed, however, if we consider the business model of electronic manufacturing for OEMs or others, there are some companies such as Dixon, and Amber among others that have the same business model. Compared to these companies this issue is available at a lower valuation with superior margins and return ratios. Hence, we recommend subscribing to the issue with a long-term prospect.
