Ridings Consulting Engineers India Ltd IPO Review: The company has seen increased profits in the financial years 2013 and 2014. However, in the next 2 financial years, the profit has seen dips. Once again in the financial years 2017 and the current financial years the company has managed to show increased profits. The dip in profits in the mid-years may be due to the debt of the company. The new issue money will help RCEIL in shaping up their business in a better way.
The earnings per share for the last financial year is at 1.16 and the PE ratio is at 15.57. We feel the business model is attractive, but the EPS is on the lower side as compared to peers like Rolta India or Genesys International. Hence, our Ridings Consulting Engineers India Ltd IPO Review is NEUTRAL on this issue. However, cash-rich and risk-taking investors can apply in RCEIL if they have a long-term view.
