At the higher end of the issue price, adjusting for the valuation of the listed plays (SLL and Mindtree) along with IT play, the coffee business is available at 25-26x its FY2015 EV/EBITDA which is in line with some of the listed comparable companies and thus is not cheap. However, given the strong brand image, extensive distribution reach and growing disposable income in India, the company is an attractive play on urban discretionary consumption and investors could look at it with mid-to-long term investment horizon. There may be listing gains, which risky traders would want to take to.
