Expert found IPO a bit expensive
Ayush Aggarwal, Senior Analyst, Swastika Investmart said, “The company’s financial figures were badly affected during the corona epidemic, but it returned to normal levels again in the first half of FY 2022. Based on FY21 earnings, the issue is valued at 161 times its P/E and 24.42 times the price to book value, which looks a bit expensive.

Expected to list below issue price
Even in the gray market, the shares of Vedanta Fashions were trading at the same issue price. Agarwal said, “The impact of the ongoing volatility on the global level is expected to continue on the Indian stock market as well. Hence, the stock is expected to list below its issue price. Aastha Jain, Senior Research Analyst, Hem Securities, also expects the issue to be listed flat or at a discount of a few per cent.

Vedanta Fashions has hugely popular clothing brands like ‘Manyavar’ and ‘Mohey’ which have a pan-India presence. Other important brands of the company are Manthan, Tvmev and Mebaaz.
