Angel Broking believes on the valuation front, at the upper end of the price band, the P/E multiple works out be 80x (pre issue equity base) of FY17 EPS which prima-facie looks on the higher side.

“However, considering future earnings growth trajectory to be very robust (FY19 earnings expected to be 4x of FY17 earnings); we feel that the stock would trade at ~22-25x (post issue equity base) on our rough EPS for FY2020 which looks very attractive,” the brokerage said in its report.

Its closest peer - Dixon Technologies is trading at higher valuation of 30x FY20 earnings.
