Valuation and Outlook 

The topline of the company is growing at a 3-year CAGR of 24 per cent and its bottom line is growing at a 3-year CAGR of 64 per cent. The company has shown good improvement in FY22 financial performance. The profitability margins of the company are also improving. Currently, the debt-to-equity ratio of the company is 0.8x.  

KTIL has created a niche place in the segment and has good orders on hand. Based on its current financials though the issue appears fully priced, considering future prospects, well-informed investors may consider parking funds with medium to long-term perspectives.  

The issue is priced at a P/BV of 12.96x based on its NAV of Rs 45.30 as of June 30, 2022, and at a P/BV of 3.91x based on its post-IPO NAV of Rs 149.98 at the upper cap. If we annualize its FY23 earnings and attribute it to post-IPO paid-up capital, then the asking price is at a P/E of around 84.95x. Due to increasing profitability, a healthy order book and strong financials we recommend investors to invest for the long term in this IPO.
