EBITDA margins as well as return ratios have also risen at a healthy rate between FY19- 21.  At the higher end of the price band, Data Patterns IPO is priced at a **Price to Earnings Ratio of ~54 times** FY21 earnings. This seems to be lesser than MTAR Tech (135 times), Centum Electronics (190 times) and Paras Defence (190 times) but lesser than Astra Microwave and Bharat Electronics. Notably, Paras Defence as well as MTAR Technologies saw bumper listings recently from this space.   Given the company’s steady topline growth, robust margins, good return ratios, competitive advantage in design and development capabilities, entry barriers in the industry and strong growth outlook, we remain **“positive”** on the prospects of the issue. ## Subscription status as on 16th December 2021 (End of Day 3) | Category | Subscription (times) | |-----------|----------------------| | QIB | 190.86 | | NII | 254.22 | | Retail |23.14 | | Total |119.62 | To read more about Data Patterns post IPO details like allotment date, listing date etc, click [here](
