Analysts see uncertainty in future profitability

“Dependence on the parent company for most O&M contracts may lead to muted growth in future order inflows. Total debt on the books was at ~| 900 crore; though the management expects to become net debt free in the coming period (through IPO proceeds and selling a SPV), we see uncertainty on this and future profitability. We assign an UNRATED rating to the IPO,” said a report by ICICIdirect Research.
