In our “IPO Analysis” we had advised readers to go for it with a short term perspective. We had said, “For the short term, one can apply in the IPO given strong core performance in FY19 and healthy revenue visibility for FY20. Over the medium term, quarterly result and operational parameters need to be tracked, while over the long term, close monitoring for 2 key risks is warranted - competitive behavior and evolving industry trends to gauge the inherent strength of the company.” For the long term, it remains under watch.
