ICICI Securities is one of the pioneers in the online broking services in India, catering to a vast customer base which consists primarily of retail investors. The business is based on an asset light model relying on their electronic brokerage, 'ICICI-direct' platform.

Financially, the company has showcased its strong technology based business model, with the revenues growing at 19% CAGR over the last 5 years, the PAT growing at 45% CAGR. This is mainly attributable to their asset light model and the improvement in the scale of operations.

The EBITDA Margin has been at an average of 32% over the last 5 years, and was 40.2% and 48.9% in F.Y 17 and Dec'17 respectively. The PAT Margin on average was at 17% over 2013-17, and 24% and 29.6% for F.Y 17 and Dec'17.

For F.Y 17 the company had an ROE of 69.6% and an ROCE of 91.32%, while the average ROE and ROCE over 2013-17 were 49% and 71% respectively. The company had an ROA of 16.55% in fiscal'17.

Looking at the valuation, the issue price of 520 is at 25 times the book value based on Dec'17 numbers, and the P/E Ratio comes to 31.5 times on F.Y-18 earnings (annualized). This when compared to peers identified by the company is near the average P/E of the pack.

The company has increased its market share from 4% in 2013 to 9% in 2017, which is highly commendable. This is an excellent play on the shift to Financial Assets vs. Real Assets. We advise investors to subscribe to the issue & stay invested for the medium to long term.
