As per CA Ajay Chouhan, SEBI Registered Research Analyst, recommendation is to 'Subscribe' but with a caution. The Magazon dock shipbuilder is the only shipbuilder that can built destroyers and conventional submarines. The shipbuilding division of the business is currently building four P15 B destroyers, four P-17A stealth frigates while the submarine division is engaged in building four Scorpene class submarine under transfer of technology from Naval group, France and a medium refit & life certification submarine. The listed peers have never been a decent investment bet for the investors but major cause of subscription comes from its financials. The company enjoys the tag of debt-free, 15% Return on Equity, good dividend yield and has strong order book. Moreover, the issue price is demanding 6.1x the P/E multiple at FY20 earnings much lower in comparison with the listed peers (Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Cochin Shipyard are trading at 12.2x and 6.6x respectively).

Promoter of the Company

The promoter of the company is Government of India.
