Phillip Capital has initiated 'buy' call on the stock with target price of Rs 718 per share considering market leadership and strong cash flow. The company expects to become debt-free in 2-3 years, with operating cash flow to be Rs 10.6 billion.
"The strong financial performance showcased its growing strength in the industry. Strong balance sheet with a debt/equity ratio of 0.4 times and its focus to reduce debt by using IPO proceeds will strengthen its balance sheet further," said Geojit Financial Services.
According to brokerage IndiaNivesh, the company has high cash flows and good return ratios. It is also virtually debt free which makes it a compelling investment idea. Management’s focus to diversify through FMEG (lights, switches, fans etc.) augurs well for future growth.
