Valuation and recommendation

At the upper end of the price band, the issue is asking for a market cap to sales (FY18) of 0.5 times, which looks attractive especially looking at revenue growth of the company in last three years. The price to earnings (FY18) of the company comes at 7.8 times after annualising H1FY19 profit. This again is lower compared to some of its peers and growth that is visible in its bottomline. What is also good is that the company is consistently paying dividends to shareholders (Dividend Yield – 4.2 per cent in FY18). Therefore, we tell readers to subscribe to the issue with long term investment horizon looking at the company's strong order book, balance sheet along with reasonable valuation.

*40 or lower – Avoid Investment, 41 to 45 – Risky, 46 to 50 – Invest with limited exposure, 51 to 55 – Investment recommended, 56 & above – Excellent Investment
