Valuation and Outlook 

Based on FY22 earnings the company’s issue price is valued at PE of 38.3x. Even if we annualise first quarter profit numbers and take expanded equity after issue, PE comes to around 32x, which looks expensive. Even if we compare market cap to sales, IPO seems to be not keeping anything for the IPO subscribers.  Shares of company are available at market cap to sales of 2.01 times, again on higher side. Though, the company has a good product mix, strong customer base, good financials, the issue seems discounting all the positives and hence, our advice to investors is to skip the issue.
