Happiest Minds IPO Review/Ratings
Global technological spend is estimated to grow by 6.3% CAGR over 2019-25, from USD 4.2tn in 2019 to USD
6.1tn by 2025. During this period, legacy IT services are likely to grow by 2.1% CAGR, while digital
services are estimated to grow by 20.2% CAGR.
Peer Comparison and Valuation - At the higher price band of Rs. 166 per share, their share is valued at a
P/E multiple of 29.4x (to its restated FY20 EPS of Rs. 5.6), which is at a premium to peer average of 25.9x.
The issue seems to be fully priced as compared to its domestic peers. The company has earned an average
97.1% of the revenue from digital IT services as compared to its domestic peers, which earned in the range
of 30-50%. Thus, the company cannot be fully comparable to domestic peers.
There are international peers, who derive almost all of their revenue from digital services, trading at a
P/E multiple ranging from 67-139x. Assuming the valuations of these companies in the US markets are frothy,
the valuation demanded by Happiest Minds seems to be attractive.
They have been growing high revenue-generating customer accounts, have multiple drivers for steady growth
and strong R&D capabilities.
A cause of concern, however, would be the subdued economic growth, intense competition and unfavourable
movement in forex rates.
