The IPO is valued at 25.7x and 18.9x EPS for FY20 and annualized FY21, respectively, which looks to be reasonable. Given huge opportunity in domestic and international space in Agri and Chemical space along with growing importance of domestic manufacturer globally, growth trajectory of HIL is expected to sustain, in our view. Additionally, HIL already has built sufficient resources in terms of land and other resources to set-up additional manufacturing unit, which bodes well. Notably, its peer like Rallis India and Sumitomo Chemicals are trading at significant premium to HIL despite HIL has displayed superior earnings growth compared to peers.
