Syrma + SGS Tekniks = Syrma SGS
Syrma SGS Technology is a new entity formed in September 2021, following the acquisition of Gurugram-based SGS Tekniks by Syrma Technology in a cash and stock deal. The combination added manufacturing and R&D capabilities and supplier network, giving headroom for growth to the merged entity. It is also noteworthy that there was little to no overlap of customers and geographies. Subsequently, the company acquired Perfect ID in October 2021, bolstering the infrastructure and technical know-how for the production of RFID label tags and passive inlay tags.
Syrma SGS Technology IPO: Increasing top line, uneven margins
Syrma has put in impressive performance as far as top line is concerned. From INR357.4 crore in FY2019, it increased sales to INR444.5 crore in FY2021 while latest quarter revenues stood at INR135.3 crore. Net income, on the other hand, went from INR21 crore in FY2019 to INR43.9 crore in the next year before coming down to INR28.6 crore in FY2021.

As such, Syrma SGS Technology IPO will be keenly watched by market participants.
