Most of the machines build, are modular by design and can be refurbished for other applications in case of a reduction in demand or phasing out of the product for which the machine was originally built, thereby reducing the capital expenditure requirements and de-risking the business model.

Financial Review

Total revenues for FY21 increased by 6.74% to Rs 1572.36 crore. This was due to the fact of the increase in revenues from the sale of products from new business. (sales of existing and new products to new customers and sales of new products to existing customers). It should be noted that there was a decrease in the revenue from the existing business. This decrease was due to the reduction in vehicle production in India and globally. Revenues in FY20 reduced by 10% to Rs 1473 crore from Rs 1640 crore due to the effect of pandemic and decrease in vehicle production.

The profitability margins are strong, EBITDA and Net Margin can be seen from the chart. Debt is 0.75x of equity as on 31st Mar 2021. Return on net worth is 12.51%, 10.40%, and 14.31% for FY21, FY20, and FY19 respectively.

Investment Strategy

The Issuer’s financial profile is impacted by the pandemic in FY20 and there is a decrease in the business from the existing customers as well. The topline of Sansera shows volatility trends though the margins seem to be reasonable. The electrical vehicle segment is on the boom and poses a challenge over the auto segment. Hence though the Issuer has highlighted that they are apt to make any changes in their business owing to changes in the market but this depends on the future market conditions. The Issue is reasonably priced when compared to the peers. There are other upcoming IPOs as well in the market so one may wait and look for other IPOs. However, cash surplus investors may invest for short-term benefits.
