While its top-line remained static, its bottom line has shown growth that is attributed to efficient cost management and no additional cost is now incurred for content creations.  However, since it is developing 'Tutorix', staffing expenses on this account is being provided in intangible assets under development and charged to balance sheet. The final implication will be done for such expenses at the time of amortization. Currently, Tutorix initiative is being funded from internal accruals and major chunk will be used from the IPO proceeds.
If we consider FY19 earnings and attribute it to fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 16.9. Thus issue appears fully priced on the basis of current financial data.
As per offer documents, it has no listed peers to compare with.
On merchant banker's front, this is the 4th mandate from its stable. Out of last 3 listings, 1 issue opened at par and the rest 2 with premiums ranging from 6.88% to 49.12% on the day of listings.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Although the issue appears fully priced on the basis of current financial data, it is poised for bright prospects once Tutorix initiative goes on stream.
