The Company is debt free and has a strong balance sheet. We believe this Company should be part of investor’s portfolio as its business model is sound and has big opportunity to be seized. We expect an upside of 30 percent for investors with a horizon of 12 months with a target of Rs. 1,066 (12x at estimated FY22 EPS of Rs. 88.33).
