Outlook –

Nureca is a digital-first company wherein the company sells the products through online channels partners such as e-commerce players, distributors and retailer. Further, the company also sell its products through the company’s own website Currently, 95% of revenues for the Company comes through digital channels (e-Commerce).

As part of this tie-up, Nureca will sell products from its Dr Trust and Dr Physio brands at 30 Croma stores across the country. There are numerous other market players, like Dr. Morepen, Health Sense, Agaro, Lifelong, Omron, Philips, Johnson and Johnson, Roche, Bayer. The company doesn’t have any listed player.

Eyeing the brand recognization and their focus on healthcare products we may see some attraction in the IPO. The innovation of products along with the enhancement of technology would be interesting to see in the near future. One should continuously look at the margins of the company in the next few quarters. Looking at short business history, inconsistent margins, and high debt on books. We assign an “AVOID” rating for the NURECA LIMITED IPO.
