At CMP, the stock is trading at PE of around 33 and P/B of around 3.6 which is reasonable considering the improved growth outlook.  Further, the market capitalization is around 30 time cash flow which is also reasonable. The stock did not appreciate during past 3 years due to loss of client and lower growth. Now, since growth outlook is improved, we may considering buying the stock at current price. Keep a watch on promoter shareholding as it is coming down gradually.
