Moreover, the issue appears attractive with a forward FY11E P/E of 9.3x compared to an average of 10.3x for peer (Rajesh Exports and Gitanjali). Additionally, SGJHL has enjoyed a superior ROE of over 30% compared to a peer average of ~10%. Thus, we recommend subscribing to the issue at lower end of the price band.
