" A secure, scalable and advanced technology platform having horizontal & vertical scalability, with consistent profitability, positive cash flows and limited capital expenditure and working capital required to scale growth in its key areas. Therefore we recommend a SUBSCRIBE to the issue," the brokerage said.

Swastika Investmart Ltd

Protean eGov Technologies is a well-known Indian provider of IT-enabled solutions, and the brokerage claimed in its analysis that it is in a good position to profit from the government's ongoing digitization initiatives. The business offers a broad range of services and solutions in addition to a cutting-edge, scalable, and safe technological infrastructure. The company's financial performance has been inconsistent, showing growth in its top-line figures but a fall in profit.

"However, Protean eGov Technologies faces some risks too, such as its dependence on government contracts, competition from other enterprise solution companies, and regulatory risks. The IPO is coming at a P/E valuation of 29.9x, and though the company does not have any listed peers, the issue is looking reasonably priced. Considering all these factors, investors may apply for this IPO," the brokerage said.

"There are no comparable peers having product profile and business model to PeTL. The above peers are only considered to benchmark the valuation demanded by the company. At higher price band, PeTL is demanding a TTM P/E multiple of 27.2x (to its TTM earning per share of Rs. 29.2), which is at discount to the peer average of 42.5x. Considering the dominant position in the domestic e-governance market, its capabilities to roll-out nationally critical and population scale greenfield technology solutions and attractive demanded valuations, we assign a “SUBSCRIBE" rating for the issue," the brokerage said.
