The company plans to raise around Rs 607 crore at the upper price band. The net proceeds of the offer, thereby, will be used to repay borrowings, invest in subsidiary Ikio Solutions, and other general corporate purposes.
Financially, the company's consolidated revenue saw 25 per cent compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) over fiscal year 2020-2022, while it stood at Rs 240 crore in 9MFY23. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (Ebitda) margin, meanwhile, rose 21 per cent at the end of 9MFY23. 
Key risks: Since Signify is the company's largest customer, analysts warn that the former's market-share loss could curtail the latter’s offtake. That apart, delay in continuous customer on-boarding could curb growth prospects.
Meanwhile, here's what brokerages recommend for Ikio Lighting IPO:

Analysts believe that the company's ability to offer end-to-end solutions and its backward-integrated manufacturing have resulted in a strong business model with healthy RoEs despite operating on a smaller base than its peers, which cater mainly to the mass-market needs of leading brands. They said that the stock trades at 54x 9MFY23 earnings-per-share (EPS) of Rs 5.3 at the upper price band. 
ICICI Securities | Unrated
 The brokerage firm said that at the upper price band of Rs 285, the stock is priced at 32x FY23 annualised EPS of Rs 8.8/share. While analysts highlighted government incentives, China +1 strategy to drive the growth of LED lighting EMS (electronic manufacturing service) industry; the company's dependency on single product category and high dependency on imports for supply of raw materials can act as key risks.

Analysts assert that the company's peers operating in the EMS sector does not have similar business operations to it, and are considered only for valuation benchmarking. Ikio is demanding a P/E multiple of 43.6x (to its restated FY22 EPS of Rs. 6.5), compared to the peer average of 94.6x, they said. Based on FY23E earnings, the demanded P/E of 32.7x is at discount to peer’s prevailing trailing twelve months P/E multiple of 43.2x.

The company intends to use the IPO proceeds to extend its capital expenditure plan. With such a strong foothold of the company and revenue generation capacity, analysts believe that the company does have a certain level of potential. Keeping in mind the dynamics of the industry, analysts suggest investors may consider investing in the IPO, with marginal upside expectation.
