Risk Concern

  • Company had negative cash flows in recent fiscals.
  • Company is subject to risks arising from foreign exchange rate.
  • Company operates in a highly competitive environment.
  • Global operations exposure.
  • Revenues are dependent on clients located in the United States America. Economic slowdowns & other factors that affect the economic health of the United States may affect their business.

Outlook

  • The IPO has been rated on the basis of revenue concentration risk in terms of geography, verticals and number of clients, growing trend in US market and significantly high level of debtors leading to a negative cash flow from operation in recent past.
  • However the company is also engaged with the legal activities with RBI from last so many years. But the company carries a high rich experience of promoter in this field.
  • The company's top line grew at a CAGR of 65.49% in the last five years to Rs 147 Cr in FY11. The company did an EBITDA margin of 19% and a PAT margin of 19% in FY11.
  • The company's market cap is Rs 327 Cr on an upper price band of Rs 150 which is 2.2 times its FY11 revenues. On fully diluted equity, the EPS stands at Rs.16.5 and on this basis, the issue is priced at a P/E of 7.87 to 9.09 based on lower and upper price band. Considering NAV of Rs. 55.41 as on 31.3.2011, the asking price is at an average of 2.70 P/BV.
  • The company is a very small player in a rapidly growing IT business and is exposed to international markets.  Hence TSL pricing looks cheap against the industry composite, it may not be attractive. Thus it's worth giving a miss.
