INDmoney Analysis

SJS Enterprises has reported a tepid 3% CAGR rise in topline between FY19 and FY21 to Rs 252 crore, impacted by the pandemic during the period. The bottomline growth has also remained subdued at a CAGR of 12% during the same period. However, the company has been able to maintain strong operating and profit margins during this period. 

At the higher end of the price band, SJS Enterprises is priced at a PE ratio of ~35 times FY21 Earnings per share. There are no listed peers to compare this valuation with. Given the supply disruptions in the auto industry, SJS Enterprises could see an impact on its financial performance. However, the management is confident that the demand will rebound in the next 3-4 months. 

Given factors such as tepid growth in financials over the last three years, good return ratios, stable margins, uncertain outlook due to high dependence on auto industry, and high valuations, we remain ‘Neutral’ on the prospects of the issue.
