After analysing company’s financial performance, we believe, this is the first opportunities for investor to invest in truly integrated public sector Defence Company.
With sound financial performance we recommend investor to subscribe the issue with a medium to long term view. However we are not expecting much listing gains so those who apply only for listing gains can avoid this IPO.
