Post allotment shares will be listed on BSE and NSE. BRLMs to the issue are Axis Capital Ltd and Citigroup Global Markets India Pvt Ltd. Link Intime India Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. ETL issued equity capital at par during 1999-2000 and then at a price of Rs. 280 to Rs. 8215.13 per share during 2005-2010. It also issues some share at Rs. 4 face value and offered buy-back for the same in 2011-12 at a price ranging from Rs. 70.42 to Rs. 457.42 per share.

For the first quarter of current fiscal it has reported net profit of Rs. 80.05 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 1452.94 cr. If we annualize this and attribute to the equity (that remains same at Rs. 140.66 cr. post IPO due to offer for sale) then the asking price is at a P/E of 20 plus against industry composite of 33 plus. Issue price stands at a P/BV of 4 plus. However, the company has no peer with similar model of product verticals.
