IPO Update : Supreme Infrastructure

Making Roads to Success

Supreme Infrastructure has entered the capital markets with an offer of 34.75 Lac shares at a price band of Rs. 95-Rs. 108. Investment Guru is of the view that the company's business model of integrated construction setup has worked well and has enabled it to garner higher margins in an otherwise low margin business. There are few factors such as over-dependence on government projects and inexperience in the construction of office spaces which are relatively dark areas. However, the company has priced its IPO very modestly and investors in the IPO can expect good listing gains. Given its entry in the construction of IT parks and related areas, the stock would be worth watching from a medium term perspective.
