HG Infra Engineering IPO: Summary
Overview: HG Infra is a Jaipur-based infrastructure construction, development and management firm with a focus on road projects, including highways, bridges and flyovers.
Revenues and profit for FY17 were Rs. 1,059 cr. and Rs. 53 cr. HGI’s revenues, EBITDA and PAT grew at 34.3%, 27.5% and 37.0% CAGR in 5 years.
HGI has a good 5 years performance where it has emerged as a rising star. The healthy order book, roster of completed roads projects and fair financial controls are impressive.
At a P/E of 32.9 times (adjusted post IPO), the valuations of the IPO appear to be high. However earnings growth is likely to be at a faster pace due to reduced interest costs, better efficiencies and sectoral traction. Good track record, robust financial performance, sectoral tailwinds and an experienced management team makes this IPO attractive.
Key Risks: 1) Project execution delays 2) Labor unavailability 3) Intense competition.
Opinion: Investors can SUBSCRIBE to this IPO with a 3 year perspective.
