Read: Understanding Initial Public Offer (IPO)


According to financial analysis the financial status of the company is not good. We can see in the Balance sheet of the company that current liabilities  is more than co.’s net worth and also we can find  that the company is making a continuous loss from F.Y 13 TO 15.


Compared to peer group companies such as Starbucks coffee, Dunkin coffee, Barista and costa coffee, CCD having better market  performance.


We can conclude from the above analysis that the company holds a good market share. The Company has a strong business model and is ready to face competition with its pan India presence. However company’s financial position is not providing a better picture for investment purpose and the company is making a continuous loss from the last consecutive three years. We can also see that company is reducing its Reserve and surplus  and increasing its liability( short+ long term). So I believe we should wait to apply for the IPO and once the share gets listed on the exchange, depending upon the company’s financial performance and share price,  we can possibly think to invest.
