The brokerage house highlighted the valuations and said that at the upper price band of INR 459 per share the company is priced at 4x FY17 BV on post dilution basis; whereas the peers are valued at 3x FY17 BV.

“Considering the superior track record of the company (~33% AUM CAGR; ~1% GNPA and consistent ROE of ~22% for last 4 years) we expect MAS financial to deploy the fresh proceeds in the similar way going ahead. The company would get a discount on the valuation front considering its smaller size; however the high growth potential and profitability should underpin high valuation,” the report added.
