“In terms of valuations, the post-issue P/E works out to 32.7x FY22 EPS (at the upper end of the issue price band).

HEIL has diverse product portfolio and strong expertise; we believe that these positives are yet to be factored in the valuations commanded by the company," said brokerage Angel One.
