Medplus IPO valuation (Overpriced or not?)
Calculating with its upper price band of Rs 796
Now, the EPS (earning per share) for FY21 is 5.71 so the P.E ratio (price to earnings ratio) comes at 796/5.71=139.40x
If we consider the last 3 years weighted average EPS of Rs 3.19 and the upper price band of Rs 796, P/E works out to be 250x.
Therefore, the company is asking P.E ranging between 139X to 250X which is overpriced
However, there are no listed peers in the stock exchange, so the comparison is not possible
