Moreover, PSP is aspiring to get in the higher ticket size projects, which is dominated by well reputed players. Management’s lack of experience in diverse geographies and lack of visibility of future order book may become a cause of concern for growth strategy. Hence, we recommend NEUTRAL rating on the issue.Download Full Report
