Hem Securities believes that the company is well poised to capture the growth of the LED market with a diverse product basket & focus on high-margin areas. It enjoys long-term relationships with leading industry customers and has a strong focus on R&D. We like the company as it has an established infrastructure with backward integration along with strong and consistent financial performance.

The net proceeds of the offer, thereby, will be used to repay borrowings, invest in subsidiary IKIO Solutions for setting up a new facility in Noida, and other general corporate purposes.

The company designs, develops, manufactures, and supplies LED products to other firms, who then distribute the products under their own brands. Its products are categorized as LED lighting, refrigeration lights, ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) piping and others.

Most brokerages recommend subscribing to the IPO as the company has a diverse product basket with a focus on high-margin areas, a strong growth outlook and consistent financial performance.

"The company's ability to offer end-to-end solutions and its backward-integrated manufacturing has resulted in a strong business model with healthy RoEs despite operating on a smaller base than its peers, which cater mainly to the mass-market needs of leading brands," said Anand Rathi.
