Key Strengths

·        Longstanding customer relationships leading to increased business opportunities

·        Integrated business platform offering a broad range of services and products operationally

Key Risks

·        With growing digital payments, decrease in the use of cash as the predominant mode of payment in India could have an adverse effect on company’s business

·        Highly dependent on the banking sector in India and any adverse development with respect to Indian banks that adversely affects their utilisation of and demand for cash management services or their deployment or utilisation of ATMs could have an adverse effect on company’s business

·       Company derives a substantial portion of its revenue from a limited number of customers. If one or more of key customers were to suffer a deterioration in their business, cease doing business with it or substantially reduce its dealings, company’s revenues could decline

Valuation & Conclusion





Basic EPS


CMS Info Systems Ltd 










*P/E has been calculated based on the closing market price of equity shares on NSE on December 17, 2021.

**P/E has been calculated as per the upper price band of the issue


According to the offer document, the company mentions SIS Ltd as a peer, however the two companies are not comparable on an apples-to-apples basis, hence the valuation comparison may not be a very effective way of judging whether the IPO price is expensive or reasonable.

The company is India's largest cash management company, and it had a remarkable business performance in 5MFY22, with substantial rise in EBITDA and PAT margins, which management feels is sustainable. Furthermore, the company has a decent headroom for growth as the ATM market is predicted to increase at a CAGR of 6.16 % from March 2021 to March 2027. However the key risk is the high client concentration – top 3 customers contributing to 44.59% of revenues and the largest customer contributing to 18.78% of their revenue. This large contribution from the top clients makes the company’s performance highly dependent of its key customer and exposes the revenues to risk. The company also faces the risk of increased digital payment adoption, and given the current market sentiment, it may be unable to offer 'listing gains' to subscribers. Furthermore, the issue is entirely an OFS, and the funds obtained will not be used by the company. Considering the above factors, we advise investors to ‘SUBSCRIBE with Caution’ to this IPO.
