Aadhar Housing Finance IPO Review 

BP Equities Pvt Ltd

The brokerage claims that the company and management team's capabilities are demonstrated by the overall growth, portfolio performance, asset quality, and sustained profitability during these times. Aavas Financiers (14.1%) and Home First Finance (13.5%) were the next two financial companies with the greatest return on equity in FY23, with Aadhar Housing Finance reporting the second-highest rate at 15.9%. Among the peers analysed, it also claimed the third lowest personnel cost over the same time, at 2.10% in FY23. Aadhar Housing Finance, one of the peer sets under analysis, reported annualized yield on advance and return on equity for the nine months ending December 31, 2023, at 14.2% and 18.4%, respectively.

The brokerage said that as time goes on, it anticipates improved operational performance, driven mostly by the low-income housing segment's dominance, cheap borrowing costs, and greater peer return ratios. The stock is priced at 3.1x P/BVPS on FY23 book value at a higher price range of Rs. 315, which they believe is reasonable in comparison to its rivals. As a result, the brokerage suggests giving the issue a SUBSCRIBE rating.

Swastika Investmart Ltd

The brokerage claims that there are a few significant obstacles that need to be carefully considered. Because of the creditworthiness of its low-income customers and the rise of non-performing assets (NPAs), Aadhar is exposed to inherent risks. In addition, the firm faces volatility in loan rates and competes in a highly competitive field.

Although Aadhar's IPO value of 22.8x P/E and 3.36x P/BV seems reasonable, caution is necessary due to the company's significant reliance on borrowing. As a result, the brokerage only advises high-risk investors looking for sustained exposure to the affordable housing market to consider this IPO.
