We believe the super listing premium is justified mainly on the back of Tata parentage tag that enjoys first preference among investors community and its unique well established global business model which has been generating healthy margins in the sector it serves. Given the growth potential in outsourcing, the business model would be in great demand going forward,” said Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP Research at Mehta Equities.
