Risks:

1. As of 31st December 2022, its top 20 customers accounted for 91% of restated revenue from operations. It derives a substantial portion of its revenue from a single customer, Signify Innovations India Ltd (Phillips India). Loss of key customers could have a material adverse effect on its business operations & financial conditions.

2. Also, it derives a substantial portion of its revenues from LED lighting products. Any reduction in orders from this product line could have a material adverse effect on its business operations & financial conditions.

3. If the company is not able to deploy R&D to successfully develop new products in a timely and cost-effective manner, it will face difficulties in sustaining a competitive environment which could have an adverse effect on the business operations.

4. The market it caters to is subject to cyclical demand and vulnerable to an economic downturn, which makes it difficult to project long-term performance.

5. IKIO relies on imported components from vendors in China, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. For the nine months ended 31st December 2022, imported raw materials account for 56% of the total raw materials. Any shortfall in the supply of imported components may adversely affect the pricing and supply of IKIO’s products.

Conclusion:

The company demonstrates strong financial performance with impressive EBITDA margin, PAT margin, ROE, and ROCE compared to competitors like Dixon and Amber. The positive sentiment and rally seen in consumer durables during the past month further enhance the positive outlook for the company’s future growth. IKIO Lighting possesses unique moats that provide a competitive edge over its peers. It comes at an earnings valuation of 54x at the upper price band considering EPS as of 31st December 2022. While the PE of its listed peers Dixon Technologies, Amber Enterprises India, and Syrma SGS Technology as on 05th June 2023 is 92x, 47x, and 51x respectively. This presents a favorable opportunity for the investors as the company offers an attractive valuation compared to industry peers. Considering these factors, we recommend a SUBSCRIBE rating for IKIO Lighting IPO, as the company exhibits potential for sustained growth and profitability.
