What should you do post-listing?

It is important to see what top guns of the market says about the IPO.

Angel One has a subscribe rating on the IPO, stating good launch pipeline, parentage of the prestigious Shriram Group and presence of marquee investors like TPG, Tata Opportunities Fund, Walton Street etc as the reasons. The brokerage house also highlighted the company’s excessive reliance on the Bangalore market as a risk factor.

Another broker, Elite Wealth has a positive view on the IPO but recommended only for listing gains. The broker sees demand tailwinds from the recent wage hikes in the IT industry and also finds merit in the developer’s strategy of entering new market with joint venture with other players, thereby limiting upfront costs.

On the downside, revenues of the company are constantly going down and it is, in fact, reporting losses for the last two years. The company’s business concentration in south India is also a cause of worry as any regulatory change many impact financial performance of the company.

Here is a look at the company’s financial performance in recent years.
