JSWEL is the first Independent Power Producer (IPP) to be set up in the state of Karnataka. The company has set up 2 units of 130 MW each and both units are generating power using Corex gas and coal.

While comparing with other power utilities, JSWE (post issue) looks fairly priced both in terms of price/book (P/B) as well as market cap/MW basis. However, JSWE is having clear revenue visibility at least from the 995-MW operational capacity. Also, another 2,280MW capacity coming up within 18 months would provide further boost to its near future revenue stream.

Although listing gains may not be huge looking at reasonably priced offer price, the expected commissioning of power plants within two years provides JSWE a better revenue visibility vis-à-vis its peers
