highlighting fundamentals related to the IPO of ASG Transact Technologies; Abhay Doshi, Founder of UnlistedArena.com, said: “AGS Transact Technologies is an omnichannel payment solutions provider with a diversified portfolio of payment and automation solutions. The pandemic has impacted the business due to the slowdown in economic activity, resulting in a lack of growth at the top as well as the company’s bottom line. The issue is valued at a PE multiple of 38 based on FY21 earnings and has a loss of around €18 crores in 5MFY22. Due to these factors, the IPO could receive a moderate response. However, revenue from digital solutions will be a key factor to consider in order to move forward.”
