Important things to note about the company:
Top reasons to consider the IPO:
Mankind Pharma is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the burgeoning growth that is to be witnessed in the healthcare and the pharmaceutical industries in the near future.
Mankind has access to a large number of healthcare professionals in the country. Notably, according to the company, more than 80% of the doctors in India prescribed its formulations as of December 2022.
Mankind has a robust R&D team which comprises more than 600 scientists who focus on the development of unique formulations along with product development and improvement.
The company has established a number of brands across various healthcare segments with pregnancy detection, condoms, supplements and so on that has created a strong brand recall.
Its consistent growth has been backed by its capital efficiency, and it had ROCE of 35.86%, 30.41% and 25.50% for the Financial Years 2020, 2021 and 2022, respectively.
Risk factors to watch out in the IPO:
Unlike most pharma companies, Mankind Pharma is primarily focused in the domestic market, in such a scenario, any adverse happening in either the regulatory or economical scenario in the country can affect its growth and smooth functioning of operations.
Counterfeit drugs sold under the company’s name may damage the company’s reputation
There are outstanding legal proceedings against the promoters and the directors, some of these even includes criminal and tax proceedings.
It's in a research and development (R&D) intensive industry. Any disruption, slowdown or shutdown in its manufacturing or R&D operations could adversely affect the business.
Most importantly the company is undoubtedly a dominant force to reckon with in its category. A huge market share also suggests that the company is in the maturity stage and the growth phase may be over.
Grey Market Premium is currently ₹90 as on 25th of April, 2023.

This looks the best time for a pharma company to list in the stock market and ride the momentum.
Mankind has created very strong brands with strong brand recall, something that is not commonly seen with Indian Pharma companies.
