Braithwaite & Co targets revenue of Rs 2,500, IPO by fiscal year 26

State-run Braithwaite and Co Ltd is aiming on a four-overlay expansion in its income to Rs 2,500 crore and intending to hit the capital market with an Initial Public Offer by the 2025-26 fiscal, a top organization official said on Thursday. The public area undertaking has made a turnaround over the most recent three years and posted Rs 609 crore income in 2020-21, he said. The PSU organization under the administrative control of the Ministry of Railways is hoping to contact Rs 700 crore topline in the current fiscal.

The company now has an order book of Rs 1,700 crore.

We have already achieved Rs 488 crore revenue till the third quarter (October-December) of the current financial year and are on track to post Rs 700 crore turnover by March. We are confident to have a topline of Rs 2,500 crore by FY26, Braithwaite & Co Ltd chairman and managing director Yatish Kumar said.

“We will go for listing to raise money via IPO after achieving a revenue of Rs 2,500 crore and a healthy profit for better valuation,” he said.

The company’s revenue in 2017-18 was Rs 130 crore with Rs 2.6 crore profit, and it clocked Rs 609 crore turnover in the last fiscal and a net profit of Rs 31 crore.

The PSU firm has diversified its operation from wagon manufacturing to consultancy and infrastructure building segment, which helped it register a five-fold increase in turnover in the last three years.

Kumar said the company is now a debt-free entity as it repaid loans worth Rs 50 crore from the government and banks.

The Kolkata-headquartered firm has been granted the Mini Ratna-I status, and such recognition will help it achieve the next phase of growth.

This will help the board of Braithwaite take decisions for capital investment, technology joint ventures and strategic alliances,” the official said. The Mini Ratna-I status will also facilitate Braithwaite to structure and implement schemes for human resource management and training, he added.
