    • There is nothing like must buy nowadays. Everything is costly so we should be very careful. Fundamentals are good but wait for the pricing.

  2. 2017: 30% YoY increase in Net Revenue and fall in percentage expenses, still lower profit % than previous year. Scaling effect might not adequately justify this fall. But at 46x offer price, seeing the potential and researching their website and news websites, it’s still a must buy I think.

  4. Have worked there. Really good management, strong product pipeline and sales outreach. Literally functions like an FMCG as far as distribution is concerned. It has lot of subsidiary companies which can be spun off and they have also concentrated on inorganic growth through acquisitions of Creamline Dairy and Astec Lifesciences.

    As far as IPO is concerned, it is well priced, suggest not to look at ratios alone. The premium on book value is less than what I expected personally

    • Thanks for the firsthand information. I usually track grey market and premiums have gone up after subscription. Applied in three accounts!
