Valuation and Recommendation
Increase in market share by 2x in last five years, strong track record of introducing new technological products, proactive management and brand equity developed over last 2 decades; positions Angel well for transitioning into one of the top discount brokers in India with decent profitability in the longer term. Upon combining the financials of IIFL Securities and 5 Paisa, we observe that this entity shares identical characteristics to Angel with respect to number/market share of active clients, revenue and return on equity. However Angel’s valuations compared to the hypothetical entity of IIFL + 5 Paisa is higher based on FY20 earnings. Also we believe Q1FY21 has benefits of bunching up of (i) work from home due to COVID situation & (ii) broad based buoyancy in markets. The sustenance of these dual benefits into the future is uncertain and hence we believe it would be premature to annualize Q1FY21 earnings. We thus rate the issue as “NEUTRAL”.
