Financials of Company

The company’s revenue from the operation has declined by nine per cent annually in the last three years ending FY20. Nonetheless, a major fall in revenue of 19 per cent was witnessed in FY20, as compared to FY19. To understand this, we need to understand the revenue structure of the company. The company gets revenue primarily from two sources; one is, fees for managing the assets and the other from the treasury income. In the fourth quarter of FY20, it has booked a mark-to-market (MTM) loss of Rs 83 crore that led to a decline in the overall revenue. Most of it has been recovered now. Going ahead, the financial performance of the company will depend on much upon how the AUM increases. Looking at the current larger savings of the Indians and under-penetration of mutual funds, the future of AMC companies look promising.

Valuation and recommendation

At the higher end of the price band of Rs 554, the issue is valued at 25.18 times its FY20 earnings per share of 21.53, which seems to be cheap compared to other listed players that are available at around 38 times its FY20 earnings. The market cap to sales (FY20) will come around 8.5 times compared to peers that are available at more than 20 times. Even if we take the market cap to MF AUM of the company, it is demanding 5.25 per cent compared to its peers available at more than nine per cent. Hence, we believe that the issue is attractively priced and the readers can ‘invest’.
