Outlook and Valuation
Angel has been able to retain and improve on its position with the digital and distribution edge, even in the era of advent of new age discount brokerages. The issue price discounts FY20 earnings by 25.4x while the for FY21 the discount rate is ~18x on diluted equity capital, the issue price implies a p/b multiple of 2.63 on diluted equity capital. Since client addition and volume uptick has been one of the most robust for Indian equity market retail trades there is a possibility of the same cooling off for some quarters and the ability of the company to wade through these tiles will be tested. We recommend a subscribe to the issue as a good long term investment in sync with the opportunities presented by the under penetration of investments in equities as an asset class and the strong brand equity created by the company over the last 2 decades with proven prowess in adoption of technology and strong advisory base.
