Brokerage views

Most brokerages recommend subscribing to the issue citing fair valuations, niche products, strong global presence, healthy return ratios and robust balance sheet. Let's see what they have to say.

Anand Rathi: Subscribe for long-term

The company is a global engineering solution provider operating in large addressable markets and can benefit from industrialisation trends. At the upper price band company is valuing at a P/E of 34.3x FY23 earnings with a market cap of Rs 16,740 million post-issue of equity shares and a return on net worth of 11.67 percent. We believe that the issue is fairly priced and recommend a “Subscribe – Long Term" rating for the IPO

SBI Securities: Subscribe

At the upper price band, the company is valued at 33.7 times FY23 PE (price-earnings) multiple and 3.5 times FY23 P/BV (price-to-book value) on post-issue capital. The company doesn’t have any listed peers in India. Taking into consideration weak cash flows and low return ratios, the valuations are slightly stretched. However, being a unique business, the business may command a scarcity premium, and long-term investors are recommended to subscribe to the issue, however, listing gains are likely to remain tepid.

Hensex Securities: Subscribe for long-term

Rishabh Instruments stands as a global leader in manufacturing and supplier of analog panel meters and low-voltage current transformers. We recommend a ‘Subscribe to the issue’ from the view of listing gains as well as for the long term.
