  • In Delhivery IPO Initiation: Can It Deliver?, we noted that the fundamentals are mixed as it has been unable to leverage strong growth to deliver profits or cash generation.

Pre-IPO Betters Medical Investment Holdings – The Industry, the Business and the Concerns

By Xinyao (Criss) Wang

  • The MWA market that Betters belongs to has showed rapid growth and large potential. Obviously, Betters would benefit from it based on its existing products and leading market position.
  • However, the medical device industry in China is subject to strict policy supervision. It cannot rule out the possibility that the Company’s products would be included in the centralized procurement.
  • In terms of valuation, Micro-Tech Nanjing Co Ltd (688029 CH) could be a comparable company,  but Betters’ valuation should be lower than it.
