If we analyse the financial parameters of Dharmaj Crop Guard, then it can be clearly seen that the firm is on the growth path with both EBITDA and PAT increasing on year to year basis. Total assets of the company in comparison to its borrowings are continuously increasing on YOY bais. This firm’s revenue growth is also good.

Taking the EPS as 9.60 as per RHP till March 2022, PE ratio is 24.68 and if we take the EPS as 7.44 as per RHP till July 31, 2022, PE ratio is 31.85 which is on the higher side in comparison to the Industry PE of 24.70. This simply depicts that the IPO price is on the higher side but we cannot make any decision without considering other fundamental parameters. 

RoNW of 18.15% & EBITDA margin of 11.72% as per RHP, are second lowest in comparison to its peer companies. But if you compare its own Pat Margin growth then it is on the growth path and it can be confirmed by checking the revenue from operations which is also steadily increasing on YOY basis. If we check the the PAT in four months from April – July 2022, it can be seen that the profit earned in the first quarter is almost equal to 200 crores which is just 80 crores less than the profit earned in the whole FY 2022. This depicts that the company is on the high growth path.

ROE of 34.64 till Fy 2022 as per RHP, is tremendous in comparison to its peers and with low levels of debts, this parameter indicates that the returns generated were good in comparison to its peers. 

So, overall as the markets are in bullish mode with Nifty above 18400 levels and the high grey market premium indicates that it might gets listed with a 15-20% gain. Gain can be realised on the day of listing as there are chances that it might correct after listing.
