eMudhra IPO: Analysts’ Take
The company is posting growth in its revenues and profits with a gradually rising market share. It has a good list of its blue-chip clientele and has a good growth prospect in long term. Investors can hold if having long-term view whereas others can book profits, said Manoj Dalmia, founder and director at Proficient equities.
“The scale of operation is relatively modest and digital security and paperless transformation market is highly competitive. At the upper end of the price band, the post issue FY22 annualized P/E works out to 49.0x which we believe is factoring the positives. Hence, we recommend a Neutral rating on the issue,” said brokerage Angel One.
