“On the upper end of the price band, the issue is valued at a P/E of around 15.1x which we feel is fairly valued, given the fact that the company has healthy RoCE and RoAE ratios (31% and 26.8%, respectively for FY2022) along with low debt. We, therefore, recommend “SUBSCRIBE” to the IPO.”

“There are no comparable peers having a product profile and business model similar to UIL. At the higher price band, the company is demanding an EV/sales multiple of 2.2x (to its FY22 sales), which seems to be in-line to the peer average. Nevertheless, UIL has better profitability and return ratios compared to the peer average. However considering the global policy tailwinds like massive infrastructure capex planned by the major economies, improving mechanization in the agriculture and global biases towards “China plus” strategy, we feel the company has adequate levers to expand its business at higher rates. Thus, we assign a “SUBSCRIBE” rating for the issue.”

Also, company’s healthy financial position with robust financial performance metrics makes this issue an attractive destination to deploy the funds in. Hence, looking after all above, we recommend “Subscribe” on issue.”

“Compared to the listed peers, Uniparts is significantly smaller in size in terms of revenue but has superior ROCE and ROE profiles along with a lower Net Debt/ EBITDA level. Considering the upper limit of the price band and FY22 EPS, Uniparts IPO is valued at a P/E multiple of 15.6x. This is at the lower end when compared to multiples at which the listed peers are trading. Considering the industry growth opportunities, differentiated offerings of Uniparts, expansion of the addressable market and focus on value addition, we recommend that Uniparts India Limited IPO be rated ‘SUBSCRIBE’.”
