Recommendation on Rossari Biotech Limited IPO:

Review and Recommendation of InvestorZone are 5/10. Rossari Biotech has shown excellent growth in the last 5 years as compared to its peers. However, at P/E of 33, the IPO looks fully priced in. 43% of Rossari Biotech revenue comes from Textile chemicals. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a temporary reduction in demand for textiles in India. However, during COVID-19 the company has entered into the business of sanitizers and disinfectant which has seen tremendous demand.

    Hence If U want to Enter in chemical space into a New Company this look at good Players at a Good Growth in Revenue, exporting to Many Countries .

    Pre ipo was done to axis icici IIFL and Sundaram group at 425 Rs.

    The business of the company:

    In FY18-19,

    a) 50% of Rossari Biotech sales are coming from the Textile Specialty Chemicals(TSC) used in the Textile Sector.

    b) 40% of Rossari Biotech sales are coming from Home Care Products chemicals (HPPC).

    The home care ingredients comprise of ingredients which are used in the manufacturing of home care products such as floor cleaners, detergents, toiletries, etc. that have applications in home and industries.


    90% of the sales are coming from two Industry chemicals i.e TSC and HPPC. 50% of sales are dependent on specialty chemicals to Indian textile manufacturers and export of the specialty chemicals to textile manufacturers in Bangladesh, Vietnam, and other global markets.

    We all know the Indian textile sector is going through a tough phase. The big listed textile players like Welspun, Raymond, Trident, KPR Millss, and Vardhman Textiles have shown mere 6-10% CAGR growth in their revenues in the last 3 years.

    As per DRHP, the peers are Galaxy Surfactants and Fine Organics. Currently, Fine Organics is trading at P/E of 35, and Galaxy Surfactants is trading at P/E of 32.

    So if we get IPO at P/E of 25, then it can give good listing gain.

    The company is really good.
