Happiest Minds IPO Review/Ratings

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. They have been growing high revenue-generating customer accounts, have multiple drivers for steady growth and strong R&D capabilities.
  6. A cause of concern, however, would be the subdued economic growth, intense competition and unfavourable movement in forex rates.
