Should you subscribe to Awfis Space IPO?

Awfis Space Solutions is the largest flexible workspace solutions company in India as of 9MFY24 providing solutions to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), based on the total number of centers.

Most analysts have recommended subscribing to the Awfis IPO on the back of its market leadership, high growth potential, strong financials and industry growth prospects. 

“The company has a Price to Sales ratio of 4.9x of its FY23 earnings. It has shifted to an asset light model which will show benefits in the coming time period. The company has a large Total Addressable Market (TAM) driven by factors such as enterprise focus on flexibility, cost optimization, workforce fluidity, reverse migration, workplace evolution, focus on wellness, facilities, and amenities, as well as growth of start-ups in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities. Looking at these factors we recommend a “Subscribe – Long Term" rating to the IPO," brokerage firm Anand Rathi said.

According to Swastika Investmart, while Awfis Space Solutions exhibits promising top-line growth, achieving profitability remains a key challenge. 

“Awfis has experienced negative cash flow in the past and operates in a highly competitive environment susceptible to macroeconomic fluctuations. Considering the potential for future growth balanced against the current financial situation and competitive landscape, we recommend a neutral stance on the Awfis IPO. Investors should conduct thorough due diligence and closely monitor the company's progress before making a final decision," Swastika Investmart said.

Master Capital Services recommends investing in Awfis Space Solutions IPO for listing gains.

“Awfis Solutions plans on continuing to build an industry leading capital efficient model in order to keep hold of the market share and increase the percentage of operational centers and seats under the MA model. The company also intends to expand in new and existing markets by evaluating potential locations and cities based on multiple criteria. But the company has incurred losses in the past financial years. Investors looking to invest can invest for listing gains," it said.

SMIFS also has a ‘Subscribe’ rating on Awfis Space IPO as it expects a strong double digit growth to continue in FY25 aided by strategic expansion plans. 

“The company’s bottom line is also expected to improve in the coming quarters due to the company’s MA model which is reducing the capital expenditure per seat gradually for the company. We recommend a subscribe to the issue as a good long trem investment, given strong industry growth prospects, future growth from capex done and fresh post issue capex to be undertaken and the company having the leanest model within the industry," SMIFS said.

Ventura Securities recommended subscribing to the Awfis Space IPO citing its market leadership and extensive presence, high growth potential in a booming market, innovative MA model for efficient operations, diversified supply and demand strategy and strong financial performance and future outlook.
