Should you Invest?
On whether one should apply for the IPO or not, Abhay Doshi, Founder at UnlistedArena.com said, “Landmark is India’s leading premium automotive retail company. It has a presence throughout the automotive retail value chain, including new vehicle sales, after-sales service and repairs, pre-owned passenger vehicle sales, and the facilitation of third-party financial and insurance product sales. The company’s strategy is to broaden their after-sales service offering in order to serve more customers and increase their higher-margin service and repair revenues."
Choice Broking said investors should excercise caution before subscribing. At the higher price band, the company is demanding a P/S multiple of 0.7x, which seems to be significantly higher than the international peers having an almost similar business profile, said the brokerage with a ‘subscribe with caution’ tag.
Landmark intends to focus on expanding its business in high-growth segments like premium and luxury passenger vehicles including UVs and electric vehicles. They aim to leverage their relationships with the OEMs, said Religare.
“The company also executed a letter of intent with the automaker BYD, a leading player in the global EV market to be their dealer in the National Capital Delhi and Mumbai in respect of their electric passenger vehicles," it added with ‘neutral’ rating.
