Bharti Hexacom IPO review

Bharti Hexacom IPO raises 1,923.75 crore from anchor investors. The telecom service provider company's revnue grew by nearly 22 percent YoY in FY23. However, company's PAT (Profit After Tax) dropped over 67 percent YoY in FY23. The company's assets at the end of FY23 stood at around 18,250 crore, which grew up to 19,600 crore in first nine months of the financial year 2023-24. By end of the first nine months, company's net worth stood around 39,780 crore that stood at nearly 3,972 crore in FY23.

Giving a 'subscribe' tag to the Airtel brand owner company's IPO, the Marwadi Shares and Finance Limited said, "Bharti Hexacom Ltd is a communications solutions provider offering consumer mobile services, fixed-line telephone and broadband services to customers in the Rajasthan and the North East telecommunication circles in India, which comprises the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura."

SMIFS has also recommended applying to the book build issue saying, "The company’s revenue from mobile services reflect-ed 97.65% and revenue from home and office services reflected 2.35% of total revenue. The EBITDA was reported at INR 27857 million which grew 53.77% YoY with an EBITDA margin of 42.34%. With ARPu having moved up from ~INR 135 in 2021 to ~INR 195 in Sept 2023, we expect substantial improvement in profitability around similar lines as Bharti Airtel over the next 24-36 months and recommend to subscribe to the issue as a good long-term investment."
