Garden Reach Shipbuilders IPO: Risks
      • The company is revenue depend completely on the defense projects mainly from the government.
      • PSUs stocks have poor growth in the past.
Garden Reach Shipbuilders IPO: Assessment
      • Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Limited has large order for 3 ships to be delivered to Indian Navy in 2024. These orders may take some time to contribute to the bottom line.
      • In the past, company’s financial performance has been average to lackluster. Though now it has good orders in hand, revenue uptick  may take some time.
      • Garden reach Shipbuilders have long-standing relationships with the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard. T
      • Cochin Shipyard (CS), a PSU is currently trading at around P/E of 13 times its FY 2018 earning.
      • There is low appetite for PSU stocks. Further with bearish secondary market  chances of making a  listing gain are low., 
      • At post issue P/E of around 16 the company’s valuations offer little comfort.  I do not intend to apply in the Garden Reach Shipbuilders IPO.
