Brokerage firm YES Securities is positive on the ongoing public offer of Endurance Technologies. The brokerage house in a research report said, “At the price band of Rs 467-472 per share, the IPO is priced at a PE band of 22.6-22.8 times on its consolidated FY16 EPS. Valuations are comparable to that of peers Gabriel India and Rico Auto trading at an FY16 multiple of 22.9 and 29.6 times, respectively, but a tad expensive to Munjal Showa trading at an FY16 multiple of 13.6 x (based on 4th October 2016 closing price). We believe the valuations for the IPO are attractive and would recommend an ‘APPLY’ on the same.”
According to Motilal Oswal, the company’s return ratios and growth are higher than the average of all the peers, while valuations are at par. Thus the company is attractively poised.
