Electronics Mart India IPO Valuation
Brokerages remain positive on the issue amid reasonable valuations, growth prospects and dominance in the markets. However, a few have raised concerns over dependence on major brands and online competition.
“In terms of valuations, the post-issue P/E works out to 21.8x FY22 EPS (at the upper end of the issue price band) which is low compared to its peer Aditya Vision Ltd. Further, EMIL has better revenue growth (CAGR of 17%) over 2 years, better return on equity and expansion plan on the cards. Considering all the positive factors, we believe this valuation is at reasonable levels. Thus, we recommend a Subscribe rating on the issue,” said brokerage Angel One.
