“At the higher price band, the company’s share is valued at a P/E multiple of 26.1x (to its restated TTM EPS of Rs. 12.1), which is a discount to the peer average of 32.7x. One of its global peers, Waste Management Inc. has acquired Advanced Disposal Services Inc. at an enterprise value of $4.9 billion. The deal was valued at EV/sales multiple of 3x and EV/EBITDA multiple of 12.1x. Considering these transaction multiples, the valuation demanded by Antony Waste seems to be attractive,” said the brokerage.

“For Antony Waste Handling Cell to grow its business it needs to win new contracts from municipalities. The top 5 clients contributed 81.8% of the revenue of the fiscal year 2020. So in the future if a company is not able to win an existing major contract again, it will impact the financials adversely,” said Keshav Lahoti

Antony Waste IPO – Risks

  • Company is dependent on municipal authorities for a substantial proportion of the business and revenue. Any reduction in municipal spending can adversely impact the business.
  • MSW projects are typically awarded on the satisfaction of prescribed pre-qualification criteria and via tenders. The business and financial condition may be adversely affected if new MSW projects are not awarded to them.
  • The company is dependent on a limited number of customers for a significant portion of the revenue. Loss of any of the major customer may adversely affect the business.
  • A significant portion of the company’s revenue is from operations in limited geographies. Projects in new geographies may not be as profitable as the current ones.
  • Certain group companies and subsidiaries have incurred losses in the preceding three Fiscals.
