For Q4 FY 23

For the same period, Quarterly Net Profit exhibited an increase of 9.84%, achieving Rs. 2.79 crore in March 2023, up from Rs. 2.54 crore in March 2022.
EBITDA showed a marginal rise of 2.07%, reaching Rs. 3.46 crore in March 2023, in contrast to Rs. 3.39 crore in March 2022.
For the year ended March 23
Net Sales achieved Rs 25 crore in 2023, marking an increase of 13.64% from Rs 22 crore in 2022.
Net Profit recorded Rs 14 crore in March 2023, reflecting a rise of 7.69% from Rs 13 crore in March 2022.
EBITDA amounted to Rs 16 crore in March 2023, showcasing a growth of 0.00% from Rs 16 crore in March 2022.
It’s worth noting that the company is entirely debt-free.
As of March 2023, the company holds cash and equivalents totaling around 35 crores. Considering its market capitalization of 100 crores, this signifies a substantial 35% cash balance.
When considering the total number of shares, the cash balance translates to approximately 87.5 Rs per share.
The company has consistently maintained a Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) of around 16% over the past several years.
Given the notable recent increase in the stock’s price and the broader market’s positive trend, it’s prudent to exercise caution, as the company might not be able to sustain such exceptional returns over the upcoming period.
Given the relatively modest size of the company, the management typically refrains from offering guidance, comments, or extensive information, especially in the early stages of its development. This approach is observed until the company attains a certain level of maturity. As a result, there is currently no specific information available to include in this context.
As the company is presently engaged solely in the operation and maintenance of an IT park, with no further details provided, discussing a sectoral outlook would be of limited relevance. The company’s operations are relatively modest, encompassing aspects of the BPO segment. However, it is advisable to avoid excessive embellishment of the sector’s significance, as this could inadvertently magnify the company’s standing. With this in mind, we have chosen to abstain from elaborating further on this matter.
Elnet Technologies, a completely debt-free and financially robust company established in August 1990, possesses a modest share capital. The company specializes in pioneering Software Technology Parks, an innovative concept that originated in India. Over a span of 3 and 5 years, while the increase in the company’s sales remains moderate, its net profit has seen noteworthy growth. It’s noteworthy that ETL appears to exhibit a high level of illiquidity, primarily due to a significant concentration of shares held by its promoters. However, with a substantial net cash balance of 35 crores against a market capitalization of 100 crores and no outstanding debt, the company’s financials evoke curiosity. Looking ahead, the company’s trajectory could take divergent paths. The pursuit of fresh opportunities or expansion initiatives might position it favourably, but the absence of such moves could potentially lead to stagnant or even negative returns. As the current market attains all-time highs, we advise cautious consideration when contemplating an investment in the company.
