Data Patterns IPO valuation (Overpriced or Underpriced?)

Calculating with its upper price band of Rs 585

Now, the EPS (earning per share) for FY21 is 11.89 so the P.E ratio (price to earnings ratio) comes at 585/11.89=49.20x

If we consider the last 6 months ended Sep-21 EPS which is 4.97, therefore the P.E comes at 585/4.97=117.70x

Therefore, the company is asking P.E ranging between 49X to 59X which is reasonably priced
