The said brokerages have collectively stated that IKIO lacks a peer company with operations that are comparable to its own, hence it is compared to businesses in the EMS sector and is solely taken into account for valuation benchmarking. Signify, the industry leader in decorative lighting in India, is IKIO's biggest client. A significant decline in the former's market share could reduce the latter's uptake. Any maker of contracts must continually onboard new clients. Growth might be slowed down significantly. When compared to its close counterparts, the IPO appears to be properly valued across a variety of valuation metrics.
Motilal Oswal Investment Advisors Limited is the sole book running lead manager and KFin Technologies Limited is the registrar to the offer.
