Now a quick look at the companies financials. Watch the below mentioned image:
It has been noted that the company has seen margin pressure inspite of increasing turnover all through the years. The company has posted highest profit in the FY2014 of Rs. 1.59 crores after which the net profit declined steadily. This may be due the debt of the company.
So some final thoughts on Creative Peripherals Distribution IPO review. In the bull market of today we are seeing spurts of IPOs hitting the market and most of the relatively weak issues also perform well in a good market. Hence in line of the declining financial results of the company I suggest not to be aggressive with this IPO.
