Nova Agritech IPO Review

Swastika Investmart Ltd

Through its diverse range of branded products, Nova Agritech is an agri-input company that offers a one-stop shop for the health of crops and soil, according to the brokerage. It is well-established worldwide, and its successful marketing plan sets up the business for future expansion.

With steady growth over the last three years and well-defined development plans, Nova Agritech showed an exceptional financial performance.

"However, some key risks require consideration. The company's business is inherently linked to climatic conditions and relies on a limited geographical area for the majority of its revenue.

Additionally, the agri-input sector is highly competitive. However, the issue is valued at a P/E of 13.05x, and its RoNW of 38.27% is also attractive, thus considering all the factors we suggest to Apply for this IPO for listing benefits," the brokerage said.

As per the brokerage, the company's comprehensive farmer outreach programme and well-established distribution network throughout cities guarantee a high level of product acceptability. In addition, Nova AgriTech is positioned as a one-stop shop for solutions due to its dedication to eco-friendly solutions, which is bolstered by a well-stocked R&D centre and knowledgeable staff. Nova AgriTech has shown strong and consistent revenue growth over the previous three years in terms of its finances. The net profit margins, in particular, have expanded significantly and admirably throughout this time.

"With an impressive ROE of 32.1%, ROA at 11.3%, and PAT margins of 9.7%, the company exhibits attractive financial metrics in a highly competitive segment. The comfortable asset turnover ratio and efficient asset utilisation indicate the potential for sustained profitability. Turning to valuations, the PE ratio stands at 12.3x based on the annualised diluted H1FY24 EPS which appears relatively low compared to peers in the industry. The valuation outlook hinges on Nova

AgriTech's ability to maintain its current sales growth rate, preserve net margins, and gradually improve them. Based on the positives discussed, we give the issue a “SUBSCRIBE" rating," the brokerage said.
