The company's promoter ownership is 75.00 per cent, and there are 36,33,960 outstanding shares. In comparison to its competitors, like Rail Vikas and NCC Ltd, the stock is overvalued since it is trading at a high P/E of 247.80. Compared to its rivals PNC Infratech, KNR Constructions, National Standard (India) Ltd., and Macrotech Developers Ltd., the company's poor ROCE of 1.80% shows that it is not deploying its capital effectively and hence return on investment is low. The company's poor ROE of 1.10 per cent suggests that, in comparison to its above-stated rivals, it is not able to generate profit from its shareholders’ equity. The stock is now trading at a high EV/EBITDA ratio of 67.01, and it is even trading at 2.59 times its book value. Both ratios indicate that the stock is expensive in relation to the peers mentioned above.
