Entero Healthcare Solutions IPO Review

According to the brokerage, Entero Healthcare Solutions Limited is a medical supply distributor in India. The technology-driven platform of the organisation facilitates the procurement of healthcare supplies for pharmacies, hospitals, and clinics throughout India. Entero Healthcare Solutions is connected to more than 1,900 healthcare product manufacturers and has access to approximately 64,500 product stock-keeping units.

“However, the company has lost money in the last three fiscal years due to negative cash flows from financing, investing, and operating activities. Additionally, the company’s operations demand a large amount of working capital.

As it has been at a loss, we cannot define its P/E valuation. However, due to its current financial condition and other risk factors, we will avoid this IPO,” said Shivani Nyati, Head of Wealth, Swastika Investmart Ltd.

Dilip Davda

According to Davda, a contributing editor at Chittorgarh.com, the company is one of the leading and fastest growing healthcare product distributor in India. Entero Healthcare Solutions marked losses for FY21 to FY23 and turned the corner for H1 of FY24.

“Based on annualised FY24 earnings, the issue appears aggressively priced, discounting all near term positives. Well-informed/risk seeker/cash surplus investors may park funds for the long term reward as it holds prospects going forward,” said Dilip.
