Sectorial outlook – The global ESDM market was estimated at $804 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $1,002 billion in 2025 at a growth rate of 4.5%. The global ESDM market witnessed a period of steady growth till 2018, riding on the wave of increased outsourcing activities from OEMs and increasing electronics content. However, in 2019, the opportunities started stagnating due to a multitude of factors, firstly, due to a decline in global automotive sales and saturation of consumer electronics sales, and secondly, due to supply chain restrictions as a result of heightened trade tensions between the US and China. The Indian electronics consumption market is estimated to be $80 billion in Fiscal 2021, with a growth rate of 18.4% expected to reach $186 billion by Fiscal 2026. India contributes to approximately 1.8% of the global ESDM market in 2020. However, there is a strong push from the GoI to make India an ideal location for electronics manufacturing in the region. Under the NPE, India announced various 164 programs in 2019, including EMC 2.0, to enhance the infrastructure of electronics manufacturing and offer incentives to manufacture more products that promote the industry in India. All of the above are expected to have a positive impact on the sector the company is operating in the long term.
The financials (revenue and net profit) are shown in the graph below:
Valuation – For the last 3 years average EPS is Rs. 4.4 and the P/E is around 131x on the upper price band of Rs. 587. The EPS for FY22 is Rs. 8.93 and the P/E is around 65.7x. If we annualize Q1-FY23 EPS of Rs. 2.11, P/E is around 69x. It has Syrma SGS Technology Ltd (66.8x), Dixon Technologies Ltd (116x), and Amber Enterprises India Ltd (52.8x) as its listed peers as per the RHP. The company’s P/E is between 65.7x and 131x. Revenue has been growing consistently and the net profit has improved.
Recommendation – The Company has capabilities across the entire spectrum of electronics system design and manufacturing services and has established long-term relationships with well-known customers across the industries it caters to. The valuation seems in line with the other companies in the sector but on a standalone basis, it seems a little expensive. After considering all the factors the listing still seems a little expensive with good prospects but in the current market condition we would recommend investors to wait for now and Buy on dips post listing
