Brokerages in general are of the view that there are no entities listed on Indian bourses whose business portfolio can be compared with that of Tarsons together with its scale of operations.

"With respect to its performance in FY20, its business and profitability increased drastically in the pandemic year. However, we believe that the current business growth and profitability expansion is not sustainable. There is a respectable import market for the company to capture and also a huge export opportunity arising from the 'China plus one' strategy, in case the globe adopts this strategy in the post-Covid period. Thus considering the future growth outlook and the demanded premium valuation, we assign a 'Subscribe with Caution' rating for the issue," said Choice Broking.

It is available at reasonable valuation on an absolute basis," it added.

Canara Bank Securities also recommends to 'Subscribe' to the issue of Tarsons for both listing as well as long term gains and says "On the back of growing labware industry and being a key industry supplier, the company has potential to grow business going forward". Robust financials, strong return ratios and company's debt free status post the IPO also hold good.
