The company has also been improving on its financial performance year after year. For FY 09, the total income of the company was at Rs. 247 crores, with PAT at Rs. 7.50 crores, giving an EPS of Rs. 8.30. For 6 months ending 30-9-09, the total income improved to Rs. 209 crores, with PAT at Rs. 7.97 crores, resulting in an annualized EPS of Rs. 17.50.

The company is trying to expand in Tamil Nadu state with minimal capex, which will help the company to post a growth of about 40% every year, over next 3-4 years.
Expecting an EPS of Rs. 15 for FY 10 on conservative basis, share at the upper band of Rs. 75 is being issued at a PE of 5 times, which looks reasonable, while comparing with the other listed peers.

Still, on an overall basis, stock at upper band of Rs. 75, looks reasonably priced, which is likely to give listing gain as well as gain over next 6-12 months.
