The size of the Indian tiles industry is estimated to be around Rs 35,000 to Rs 40,000 crores in 2019 with exports comprising of close to 35% of the sector revenue. Indian Ceramic tiles industry expected to grow at a healthy rate of around 12% to 14% in the next two years even though the global tile industry has declined last year, which is expected to have positive impact on the company and its business.
On the financial side, the company has reported revenue of Rs. 259.85 Cr, Rs. 243.96 Cr and Rs. 244 Cr in the FY21, FY20 and FY19 respectively and net profit of Rs. 15.22 Cr, Rs. 11.26 Cr and Rs. 8.92 Cr in the FY21, FY20 and FY19 respectively. The average annual revenue growth from the last 3 years has been around 3%.
Looking at the valuation perspective, for the last 3 years average EPS is around 3.83, the P/E ratio is 31x. On the upper price band of Rs 120 and EPS of Rs 4.54 for FY21, the P/E ratio works out to be 26x. Hence, the PE range is 26x to 31x at the upper price band. There are listed peers like Orient Bell trading at P/E 61x (Highest) and Asian Granito trading at P/E 9.9x (Lowest) and industry average P/E of 42.7x. Based on super earnings of FY21, the issue is fully priced. Considering all the above factors and much better IPOs floating, we recommend “AVOID” this IPO.
