The brokerage views on Venus Pipes and Tubes IPO

According to Anand Rathi, "Venus Pipes and Tubes Ltd is a manufacturer of pipes and tubes with the sole focus on manufacturing of welded and seamless pipes in a single metal category i.e. stainless steel. Being present in only one metal segment since inception, the company have gained segment expertise. The Company supply their Products across a diversified range of sectors and the demand for their product is also expected to increase with growth in downstream sector. The Company is planning to double its capacity and backward integrate with the help of IPO proceeds which will help it to increase its revenue and margins. The company is available at the upper end of the IPO price band at 21x its FY22 annualized earnings attributable to post issue equity demanding a market cap of Rs. 6,617 million. At the upper end of the IPO price band, the issue is priced at a P/BV of 10.7x based on its NAV of Rs. 30.5 as of March 31, 2021. The Company has delivered good growth in Sales over the past few years along with an increasing margin profile. However, Venus faces competition from its peers who hold substantial market share in the SS pipes and tubes market. When compared to its listed peers, Venus seems to be richly priced. We recommend an "Avoid" rating to this IPO."
