Bikaji Foods IPO Review

BFIL is one of the largest organized namkeen snacks and sweets manufacturing and marketing companies. It has posted declined margins for FY22 on higher sales in line with the general trends of the industry. Sustainability of such margins going forward amidst stiff competition raise concerns. Based on its FY23 annualized earnings, the issue is aggressively priced. Well-informed, cash surplus/risk seekers may consider parking funds in this issue.
