“The scale of operation is relatively modest and digital security and paperless transformation market is highly competitive. At the upper end of the price band, the post issue FY22 annualized P/E works out to 49.0x which we believe is factoring the positives. Hence, we recommend a Neutral rating on the issue," said brokerage Angel One.

It is a 'one stop shop' player in secure digital transformation and provides a wide spectrum of services and solutions from issuance of certificates as a certifying authority to offering identity, authentication and signing solution.

“There are no listed peers having business similar to EML. At higher price band of Rs. 256, the company is demanding a P/E multiple of 114.5x, which seems to be high. Also, considering the current turbulence in the global equity market, we assign a “Subscribe with Caution" rating for the issue," said Choice Broking.
