For last two fiscals, its top and bottom line has marked spectacular growth which is due to launch of mobile, CCTV and LED lightings related activities. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 40 and at a P/BV of 9.8 which makes it a fully priced issue.
