Ashika Stock Broking: Neutral
“The promoter group is offloading their stake in this IPO. Company will utilize Rs 175 crore towards debt repayment and capex. Hence, debt level is expected to reduce further post the IPO. In terms of the valuations, on the higher price band, EEL demands a P/E multiple of 29.7x based on H1FY23 post issue fully diluted EPS which seems at higher level. Given the valuation at higher level, small scale of operation compared to the peers and muted financial growth, we have Neutral view on this IPO.”
