Valuation and Recommendation

At the higher price band of Rs 178 and on the expanded equity base, considering the IPO, the offer is demanding market cap to sales (FY19) of 1.25 times, which is one of the lowest in the industry. In terms of PE, the offer is made at around 23.54 times its FY2019 on a post-issue equity share capital of around Rs 11 crore at the face value of Rs 10 each. Other established players, such as Finolex industries, are available at PE of 20 times.

The return ratios of Prince Pipes are comparable with other listed players in the industry. For example, RoCE and ROEs of the company for FY19 were at 22.6 percent and 20.5 percent, respectively.

Looking at the current vibrant IPO market, we believe that the issue is fairly priced and one can subscribe only for listing gains. Long term investors can wait for the price to settle down after listing to commit to any fund.
