IZ View: 1. The Revenue growth is excellent from 3.23 Crores in FY18 to 5.62 Crores in FY20. 2. The EBITDA Margins and PAT margins are excellent as it is an asset-light company where the major expense is " Employee Benefits Expense". 3. EPS for FY19-20 is 2.89 per share. 4. Asking P/E is 47x. Very expensive. 5. Mcap = 55 Crores. A company with annual revenue of just ~5 Crores asking Mcap of 55 Crores is just insane. 6. In FY19-20, the company has negative cash flow from operations.
