Inox Green Energy IPO: Should Investors Subscribe?
Choice Broking assigned a ‘Subscribe with Caution’ rating on the issue and said there are no comparable peers for Inox Green. It added that the EV/sales multiple seems to be on the higher side, given the company’s return ratios.
It added, “On the basis of FY24E topline, demanded EV/sales comes out to be 8.9 times. The macros of the wind energy segment are improving after the regime change and pandemic-led restrictions. With massive capacity addition target over the next five years, target market for the O&M services would expand, thereby benefiting players like Inox Green. Thus, we assign a ‘Subscribe with Caution’ rating on the issue.”
Arihant Capital said a synergistic relationship with Inox Wind, long-term O&M contracts, established supply chain and industry growth are expected to drive the business going forward. “Post IPO, Inox Green is expected to clear the debt that will reduce the interest cost substantially and improve the bottom line. We are recommending ‘Subscribe for Long Term’ on this issue.”
