Based on application, the market has been classified into flooring, wall cladding, cut-to-size items, and others. Among these, the flooring segment accounted for the highest share of 52% of the total market in 2021 and is estimated to hold this share in 2022. It is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 6-7% and reach $48,674 million in 2027. Compared to engineered stones, natural stones occupied a larger share of the flooring segment in 2021. This is because, natural stone flooring is elegant, has superior durability, and is easy to clean. The natural stone segment of North America is valued at an estimated $7,886 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5-6% between 2022 and 2027.

The financials (revenue and net profit) are shown in the graph below:
Valuation – For the last 3 years average EPS is Rs. 8.91 and the P/E is around 15.71x on the upper price band of Rs. 140. The EPS for FY22 is Rs. 10.52 and the P/E is around 13.3x. If we annualize Q2-FY23 EPS of Rs. 4.01, P/E is around 17.45%. It has Pokarna Limited (12.8x) as its listed peer as per the RHP. The company’s P/E is between 15.71x and 17.45x. ROA is around 4.8%, and ROE and ROCE are currently 9.12% and 7.89% respectively. Revenue has been growing consistently and the margins have also been consistent.
Recommendation – Global Surfaces has grown from a single-category to a multi-category stone manufacturing company and It also has been able to consistently grow its revenue and maintain margins now through this IPO it plans to expand its presence in the international markets by proposing to use the proceeds to set up a new facility in Dubai, UAE for manufacturing engineered quartz.
After considering all the factors, the listing still seems to be fully priced looking at its current financials and its peer hence we would recommend investors to “Avoid” this IPO, interested investors can keep this company on their watch list and may look to buy in future on dips.
