As of December 23, the company's net asset value is 107.6. At the top of the range, the price to book at this NAV is 2.92.

The NAV would increase to 123.07 at the top of the band based on the post-issue, and the ratio would remain at 2.56 times the price to book. This performed exceedingly well in comparison to the peer group. In the medium to long term, there is profit to be earned from this situation.

Aadhar Housing Finance IPO Review

Canara Bank Securities

The brokerage attributes the company's higher cost-to-income ratio—which boosts its net interest margin—to its strategic efforts, which set it apart from competitors in the sector. Since 2021, the business has also continuously maintained high asset quality. Following the transfer of 80% of DHFL's shares in 2019, BCP Topco VII PTE Ltd, supported by Blackrock Group, is currently in charge of the firm. Just 0.1% of the loan accounts in the DHFL pool are in the home finance company's loan book. Even if the firm is facing legal actions of up to 269 crores, which might have an impact on its finances, the IPO seems fairly valued at a P/B of 3.36x. The brokerage advises subscribing to the issue in order to benefit from listing profits.

SMC Global

The brokerage stated that the company is valued at a pre-issue P/E of 17.02x on annualised FY24 EPS of 18.51, taking into account the P/E valuation, on the top end of the price band of 315. The stock is valued at a P/E of 18.39x after being issued, based on its annualised FY24 EPS of Rs. 17.13. Examining the pre-issue P/B ratio at Rs. 315, with a book value of Rs. 112.27, showing a 2.81x P/B ratio. Book value of Rs. 127.36 of P/Bvx 2.47x post-issue.

The brokerage claims that Aadhar Housing Finance Limited leads HFCs in the low-income housing market by a significant margin. With 498 branches, it has a strong presence throughout India. The business's methods and procedures for underwriting, collecting, and keeping an eye on asset quality are strong and extensive. In order to cut expenses, analyse client data in real time, enhance control and underwriting capabilities, and expand its customer base and distribution reach, it moved to a digital IT architecture.
