As per analysts, the rally in the stock price of the firm comes on the back of its digitisation from a traditional broker earlier which led to a significant increase in its client base. It also led to a reduction in branch costs resulting in lower brokerage charges.

In the September 2021 quarter, the company posted an 80.2 percent YoY jump in consolidated net profit to 134.2 crore versus 74.48 crore in the year ago quarter. Its net sales also rose 70 percent to 527 crore for the quarter under review versus 309 crore in the year ago quarter.

Angel Broking changed its name to Angel One in September 2021. It is a financial services company that provides broking services, advisory services, margin funding, etc to its clients. The company went public after launching a 600-crore IPO in September 2020. The offer was open for subscription between September 22-24 and was subscribed nearly 4 times in this period.
