Outlook & Valuation:
Despite consistent growth in revenues, we saw a decline in FY21 which can be attributed to COVID-19. According to the company, the revenue in FY20 was Rs. 1388.29 Crores and fell to Rs 1321.92 crore in FY21.
However, the company has improved its net profit from Rs. 134.7 crore in FY 20 to Rs. 168.52 crore in FY 2021. Also the company has stable financial performance and increasing margins.
In the first place, the risk of market volatility needs to be considered right now on the back of rising cases from the omicron variant.
As the government focuses on digital payments, a further decrease in the use and availability of cash can have an adverse effect on business activities.
The IPO is priced at a PE of 19x to its FY21 EPS of Rs 11.09 and a P/BV of 3.24x on the NAV of Rs 66.52, which is in line with its listed peers. Thus we assign an “Avoid” rating to the IPO.
