IKIO Lighting IPO: Financials

  • IKIO Lighting has witnessed strong revenue growth in recent years. This can be gauged from the fact that its total revenues jumped from roughly Rs 221.8 crores in FY20 to Rs 334 crores in FY22.
  • Meanwhile, net profits also soared from Rs 21.4 crores in FY20 to Rs 50.5 crores in FY22. Although expenses increased by close to 38% from the FY20 figure of Rs 191.7 crores to the FY22 figure of Rs 264.5 crores, the strong growth in revenues for the company led to the profit growth.
  • Margins have also witnessed a consistent improvement in recent years. While operating margins improved from 16.94% in FY20 to 23.30% in FY22, net profit margins increased from 9.65% in FY20 to 15.12% in FY22.
  • However, a drop in key return ratios remains a concern. The Return on Capital Employed (RoCE) decreased from 37.61% in FY20 to 33.07% in FY22. Similarly, the Return on Equity declined from 59.63% in FY20 to 46.40% in FY22.

IKIO Lighting IPO: Risks

High competitive intensity: Due to the ever expanding nature of the EMS industry, more and more players are entering this market. This poses a challenge for both incumbents and the new players to hold their market shares and keep hold of their margins. This in turn also hinders the consistent revenue growth of the companies.

Concentration of customers: The company derives a significant portion of its revenue from a single customer (Signify Innovations India Limited). In fact, almost 85% of the company’s revenues are derived from its top 20 customers. Any adverse developments in the operations of these customers can hurt the prospects of IKIO Lighting significantly.

Requires constant innovation: The EMS space is in a state of constant flux. As a result, any slowdown in the R&D process by companies can lead to a loss in market share. If IKIO Lighting is somehow unable to constantly innovate, then its operations and revenue generation capabilities may be adversely affected.

This is not investment advice. Investments in the securities market are subject to market risk, read all the related documents carefully before investing. Past performance is not indicative of future returns.
