As can be seen, IKIO Lighting Ltd is valued at a P/E around 36-37, therefore when compared to its listed competitors, the IPO is fairly priced.

Important things to note about the company:

Top reasons to consider the IPO:

1. The company is well-positioned to capitalize on development in the LED market, which is being driven by a variety of factors, including an increase in smart city/infrastructure projects and rising demand for energy-efficient lighting.

2. The company offers a varied selection of products ranging from LED lighting to ABS piping’s, allowing it to expand into several industries. This allows them to gain customers from various segments, allowing them to improve their market share.

3. Almost 900 clients and 16 international customers have received products from the company. Signify (Philips), Western Refrigeration Private Limited, Panasonic Life Solutions India Private Limited, and Novateur Electrical & Digital Systems Private Limited are among the company's other major customers.

4. The R&D department independently generates ODM designs, as well as assesses and develops OEM designs obtained from clients, and converts such designs into deliverable products by improving the designs, recommending suitable raw materials, and testing the trial products.

5. Aside from the diodes and resistors used in LED lighting products, the company manufactures all mechanical components in-house using their in-house tool shop.

Risk Factors to watch out in the IPO:

1. Signify Ltd generates a large amount of the company's revenue, and 20 of its top customers generate 85% of its revenue. Any delay, decline in demand, or termination of the relationship by any of the important clients will cause the flow of business to be disrupted.

2. The company has no long-term contracts with any of its consumers. This means that if consumers do not renew their contracts, the company's operations will suffer.

3. The firm relies on a variety of third-party suppliers for its components, supplies, and stock-in-trade, as well as customer support services such as product repairs and returns. Any shortfalls on the part of the suppliers can lead to a negative impact on the company.

4. The company also imports raw materials from other nations in order to run its operations. Any disruption in raw material supply or its costs can impact the company's operations.

5. The company requires a substantial amount of working capital to continue operations and expansion. Inability to meet working capital requirements may have an adverse effect on operating performance and financial situation.

Crisp Insights:

  • Current Grey Market Premium is above Rs.100 and therefore, the IPO can be subscribed for listing gains.

  • The business looks good however, dependence on top clients can be a risk going forward. Having said this, the business has strong margins (something that is normally not seen in similar businesses in the industry).
