AGS Transact Technologies IPO valuation (Overpriced or not?)

Calculating valuation with its upper price band of Rs 175


FY-21 EPS is = 4.62

The last three years’ weighted average EPS is = 5.5

5 months Aug 21 EPS is = In loss so P.E cannot be computed

Workings & calculation of P.E

FY-21 EPS is = 4.62, 175/4.62 = 38x P.E

The last three years’ weighted average EPS is = 5.5, 175/5.5 = 32x P.E

Hence, the company is asking P.E ranging between 32x to 38x

Listed peer

There is no listed peer with the same business but recently listed IPO CMS Info Systems has some match with its business connection with ATM and cash management services, So if we compare with CMS Info Systems which was listed at around P.E of 24X

So, considering all these factors the IPO price is highly-priced

AGS Transact Technologies IPO is good or bad? (review)

AGS Transact Technologies Limited is the largest omnichannel payment services provider in India in terms of providing digital and cash-based solutions to bank and corporate clients, Also the company has a good customer base and also has a diversified products/services portfolio

As of August 31, 2021, their portfolio consisted of 14,099 ATMs and CRMs under outsourcing business and 19,161 ATMs and CRMs under managed services business in India. They also provide outsourcing solutions for 1,273 ATMs and kiosks in Sri Lanka, as of August 31, 2021.

Also, looking at its future focus aspects is also justifying as the company is growing its digital payments solution with its Ongo system

However, coming to its financials the company is not doing so great here, as the revenues are revolving in the same area and too the profits are declining and even up to Aug21 the company is in loss

After analyzing all its positive and negative factors, currently at this position investing will be riskier as it is in loss up to 5 months ending Aug21 and too the IPO price is overvalued, so it will be better to wait for a good valuation. And for listing gains also it is a no because looking at its GMP till now there is no such excitement.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
