As per brokerage firm Swastika Investmart Limited, Entero Healthcare Limited has ‘lost money in the last three fiscal years.’

“This is due to negative cash flows from financing, investing, and operating activities. Additionally, the company’s operations demand a large amount of working capital. As it has been at a loss, we cannot define its P/E valuation. However, due to its current financial condition and other risk factors, we will avoid this IPO,” Shivani Nyati, Head of Wealth, Swastika Investmart, told Mint.
