Popular Vehicles and Services IPO Review 

Dilip Davda

“Though the company has presence in four states, it has over 400 touch points and that makes it the leader in the segment with a partnership with a front running Indian player Maruti. The company will continue to shift its product mix to improve its bottom lines. Based on FY24 annualised earnings, though the issue appears fully priced, it is worth considering for the medium to long term rewards," said Dilip Davda, the contributing editor at Chittorgarh.

Sushil Finance Ltd 

The brokerage claims that based on its NAV of Rs. 61.26 as of H1FY24, the issue is priced at a P/BV of 4.82. The firm uses diluted EPS for FY23 ( 10.22) and H1FY24 ( 6.38), and it asks for a PE multiple of 28.86x on the top end of the pricing band. 34.84x is the industry standard. The issue looks to be completely priced. Cash-rich investors may apply for the issuance given all the variables, risks, possibilities, and valuation.

Arun Kejriwal, founder of Kejriwal Research and Investment Services

Arun Kejriwal believes that both are issues Popular Vehicles and Services IPO and Krystal Integrated Services IPO are reasonably valued and are not expensive.

Kejriwal spoke at length about both the companies business where he explained that Popular Vehicles is a auto two-wheeler, four-wheeler, commercial vehicle, luxury car distributor, and its focus is now shifting towards maximising service revenue. So service revenue is a high-margin business. The ticket size is much smaller than a car vehicle. But they are now doing a significantly higher average than national car dealers are doing. That is improving their product and revenue picks. The focus area for them is the south and Maharashtra, so Maharashtra becomes contiguous to the south.

Further, speaking about Krystral Integrated he said that it is a large facility management services (FMS) company. Their focus area is a mixed 70% and 30% government, which includes state government, central government, and also private (70% is government, which includes central and state, and 30% is private). Their focus areas are healthcare and integrated financial management services (IFMS), where you provide a complete offering to the customer. They are also into the air force, railway stations, hertiage business, retial space, etc. It's a well-diversified business with three long vertices.
