Due to COVID-19 pandemic, construction activity had been stalled during the year. The company has also posted losses in the last 2 years. Due to its negative earnings, it is not possible to value the company on a PE ratio basis. At the higher end of the price band, Shriram Properties IPO is priced at a Price to Book Value of ~2.29 times (Apr-Sep 21). This seems to be in-line with listed peer Prestige Estates (2.61 times), but lower than Oberoi Realty (3.10 times), DLF (2.63 times), Sobha (3.25 times), Godrej Properties (6.51 times). When compared on an EV/ EBITDA basis, Shriram Properties seems to be aggressively priced as compared to peers, due to lower earnings in the previous years. Notably, Prestige, Sobha and Oberai have higher return ratios than Shriram Properties. Given a drop in revenues, negative earnings, uncertain outlook due to the ongoing pandemic, and high valuations, we remain “**Neutral**” on the prospects of the issue. ## Subscription Status (End of Day 3) (10th December 2021) | Category | Subscription (times) | |-----------|----------------------| | QIB | 1.85 | | NII | 4.83 | | Retail | 12.72 | | Employee | 1.24 | | Total | 4.60 |
