Swastika Investmart recommended giving this IPO a miss. "On the valuation front, the company has reported strong growth. The issue, however, has a PE value of 23.13, which is higher than its peers. It has a reliance on a small number of clients and the issue size is small. We recommend to 'Avoid' this IPO," it said.
"The asking P/E (post issue) comes around 38x based on FY22 earnings which look priced aggressively. Also, the current sentiments in the primary market are subdued due to a spree of weak listings," Manan Doshi of UnlistedArena.com, dealing in unlisted & pre-IPO shares, told Business Today.
On the flip side, Marwadi Financial Services assigned a 'Subscribe' rating to the IPO.
"We assign a 'Subscribe' rating to this IPO as the company has a diversified product portfolio with a customer base across geographies and industries. The IPO is available at reasonable valuations considering the future growth potential of the company," it said.
