About the company: Macrotech's core business is residential real estate developments with a focus on affordable and mid-income housing. Currently, it has residential projects in the MMR and Pune. It also develops commercial real estate, including as part of mixed-use developments in and around its core residential projects.

Brokerage views: "At higher price band of 486, the company is demanding an TTM EV/Sales multiple of 6.3x, which is at discount to the peer average of 8.5x. Thus, the issue seems to be attractively priced," Choice Broking said in a note.

Angel Broking has a neutral stance on the issue. The brokerage said, ''Company has a strong brand in affordable and mid-income housing projects, but is not able to deliver the growth in sales and free cash flow in the last couple of years. The company has posted sales degrowth of 68% in 9MFY21 and reported a negative profit after tax of 265 crore. Given weak revenue growth in the past and leverage balance sheet we assign a "neutral" rating to the IPO."
