Important note:
Retail Individual Investors shall use Unified Payments Interface (UPI) as an additional payment mechanism with Application Supported by Block Amount (ASBA) for making payments. *All Other Category of investors shall mandatorily use only Application Supported by Blocked Amount (ASBA) facility for making payments.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Although XDTL has posted rising trends in top line, its negative bottom-line and the minuscule volume against higher equity base raises concern. The company has won few long term good contacts from big corporate as well as from new start ups. This is a clear long term bet considering company may take a year or two to be in green. Hence cash surplus risk savvy investors may consider investment at their own risk in this mini main board IPO.
