“The IPO is valued at 301x FY20 and 22x FY21E annualized earnings, which look to be at par compared to Butterfly Gandhimati and 50% discount to TTK Prestige. Notably, these peers enjoy stronger balance sheet and proven earnings record compared to Stove Kraft. Hence, IPO is valued aggressively. Despite being into operation for more than two decades and setting up strong distribution network, Stove Karft has not delivered up to the marks. While sharp improvement in earnings in 1HFY21 bodes well, we are not certain about the sustainability of the same,” said an IPO note by Reliance Securities. The brokerage had a ‘neutral’ rating on the issue.
