The company is not doing very well in a consistent manner. The company initially had an asset base of 4505 crore Rs. and which increased to 5605 crore Rs. this means that the company’s debtors as well as its properties increased. Also it is a fruitful relation between net profit and revenue of the company. This says that when the company’s revenue almost increased by 3000 crore Rs the net profit increased by 300 crore Rs. Now if we look at the year forward the revenue has decreased but assets have kept on increasing and somehow the company has managed to increase its net profit.
The figures from the COVID situation indicate that the company’s assets have grown but the revenue has not kept pace with it. The revenue generation upto September’2020 is just 6000 crore Rs. which is less in comparison to the increase in asset base. However the income generated so far is 663 crore Rs which is quite impressive from the company.
The company may have taken a hit from COVID for cash flow arrangements and hence to boost the liquidity the company is set to raise the IPO which is one of the major reasons for the public issue as well.
