Ujjivan Financial Services Ltd IPO


4Q FY16 results impacted by one-off; adjusted PAT surpasses estimate

 Alkem’s net sales for 4QFY16 stood at INR11.4b, up 25% YoY, driven by a strong
domestic performance (up 22% YoY) and impressive ramp-up in the US
business (up 18% YoY). After adjusting for a one-off cost of INR180m, the
EBITDA margin came in at 15.4% (vs. our estimate of 16.4%), with the margin
miss attributed to high R&D expense of 7.6% in 4QFY16 (as compared to ~3.3%
in 9MFY16). After adjusting for MAT credit write-off of INR830m and one-time
other expense, the company’s PAT came in at INR1.5b (vs. our est. of INR1.2b).
 Domestic business’ robust growth to continue despite regulatory headwinds:
Alkem’s domestic business grew by an impressive 22% YoY. Going forward, we
believe that a consistent outperformance in established therapies, coupled
with improvement in productivity of the company’s sales force in the chronic
segment will help partially offset the impact of regulatory headwinds (we
estimate ~16% CAGR till FY18E). According to IMS, Alkem delivered a strong
growth of 16% YoY in Apr-16 (despite a price decline of 2.7% in the NELM

Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals (CGCEL) to be listed tomorrow

CGCEL is India’s leading consumer electricals company with a presence in fans, lighting, pumps and appliances. The business was operationally demerged from Crompton Greaves in Oct-15 and will be listed on the stock exchanges from 13th May 2016. It must be noted that the Avantha Group has proposed to divest their 34.3% stake to Advent and Temasek for INR20b (INR93/share) and an open offer would be made to the existing shareholders. This price should serve as the floor price, in our view.

Valuation and view

Given CGCEL’s strong RoCE profile (33%/39% in FY17/18) and operating cash flow (INR3.3b in FY17), we believe that the stock deserves to trade at similar multiples as those enjoyed by Havells India. In our view, CGCEL should be listed at a fair price band of INR99-125 (20-25x FY18E EPS)

Ujjivan Financial Services Ltd IPO

Continuing with improvements in the primary market, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) proposes to reduce the time period for the closing of an Initial Public Offering (IPO) and the date of listing to three days from six days. A decision to this effect is expected to be finalised at its board meeting scheduled for May 20, investment bankers privy to the matter told FE. A reduction in the timeline will help limit risks related to market volatility that may unfold during the period. Last month, during his meeting with domestic brokers, Sebi chairman UK Sinha had discussed this issue to understand the problems.

The move comes in less than six months of Sebi shortening the listing time for IPO transactions to six from 12 days.The system was introduced with the objective of reducing costs as well as time associated with an IPO.

“It is a welcome move. We are now moving towards international standards where the gap between IPO and listing is as low as one day. These days all the payments are done in electronic format while share allotments are done through demat accounts. Hence there is scope to make the process quicker,” said Prithvi Haldea, chairman of Prime Database.

However, legal experts who spoke with FE said, this move is ahead of time as the current post-issue compliance process takes atleast four to five days to be completed. “The regulator should ease the post-issue compliance process if the gap between IPO and listing is reduced. Currently, investment bankers need approvals from the regulator and stock exchanges at each and every step of compliance which consumes lot of time,” said a securities lawyer.

He added once bids are screened and invalid bids are excluded, the final list of valid bidders needs to be approved by stock exchanges. Further, the basis of allotment needs an approval from the stock exchanges. Once the allotment process is complete, the company will need a final approval from Sebi and stock exchanges for listing.

“There will be hiccups initially however things will stablise eventually.It is not an unilateral decision, Sebi has consulted market participants while taking the decision,” Haldea added. The Sebi chairman has spoken about the concept of quicker listing during several media interactions. In fact Sebi had proposed draft guidelines for electronic-IPOs through a discussion paper that was released in January 2015. According to the paper, quicker listing could boost retail participation and make it easier for companies to raise money.

Thyrocare Technologies Ltd IPO

Mahanagar Gas Ltd, India''s second biggest CNG retailer, will launch an initial public offer (IPO) of Rs 1,200 crore this month to get listed on domestic bourses.

British Gas India Pvt Ltd and state-owned GAIL (India) Ltd will sell 12.5 per cent each in the IPO, GAIL chairman and managing director B C Tripathi told PTI here.

"Right now roadshows for the IPO are on. To my mind, the IPO will hit the market in third week of May," he said.

The money raised through the IPO would accrue to the promoters who are selling their stake.

While Mr Tripathi refused to speculate how much the IPO would raise, industry insiders put the sum at Rs 1,000 crore-1,200 crore.

The promoters currently hold 49.75 per cent stake each in MGL, which retails compressed natural gas (CNG) to automobiles and piped cooking gas to households in Mumbai. The Maharashtra government holds a minor 0.49 per cent stake in the firm.

"Pre-IPO, we have sold 10 per cent stake in MGL to Maharashtra government and post public sale of 25 per cent through the IPO, GAIL and BG would hold about 32.5 pre cent stake each," Mr Tripathi said.

The IPO is being managed by Kotak Investment Bank and Citigroup.

Up to 24,694,500 shares in MGL will be sold in the IPO.

Offer for sale will include 12,347,250 shares ease of GAIL and BG. The offer would also include a reservation for eligible employees.

MGL distributes gas to 0.82 million households and over 2,600 small commercial and 55 industrial establishments in and around Mumbai. The company also supplies CNG to vehicles in Mumbai, Thane, Mira-Bhayander, Navi Mumbai and beyond. It has 128 CNG filling stations in Mumbai and Greater Mumbai and 45 more in adjoining cities like Thane, Navi Mumbai and Panvel.

Last year, it supplied CNG to over 0.43 million vehicles.

CNG sales account for about 74 per cent of its revenue while piped cooking gas sales and gas sale to commercial and industrial units make up for the remaining 26 per cent.

For fiscal year 2014-15, the company had reported a profit of Rs 301.01 crore on revenue of Rs 2,135.63 crore.

"We distribute natural gas through an extensive city gas distribution network of pipelines, for which we have the exclusive authorisation to lay, build, expand and operate the CGD network in Mumbai until 2020, its Adjoining Areas until 2030 and the Raigad district until 2040," the company said in the IPO prospectus.

MGL has a supply network of over 4,464 kms of pipelines.

"The objects of the offer are to achieve the benefits of listing the equity shares on the stock exchanges and to carry out the offer for sale."

"We believe that the listing of the equity shares will enhance our brand name and provide liquidity to the existing shareholders," the firm said in the IPO papers.

Due to poor response from QIB, the issue is in problem. The offer price
has been changed from Rs220 to 227 to Rs215 to Rs227, i.e. there is no change in upper price
band. The retailers will not be benefited as they are offered Rs12 discount from upper price band.
The issue subscription deadline has been extended from May 6 to May 11.
In past, the issue which reduced offer price and extended deadlines for subscription could sail
through. The offer price is higher and the anchor investors shun away from IPO after the issue got
open. Moreover, leading mutual funds like ICICI, Reliance and HDFC did not participate in the
issue. It is believed that there is a difference of opinion between merchant bankers and selling
shareholders. Moreover, around 55% shares of the promoters are pledged, which has created
negative impact on the issue.
The issue got 1.72 times subscription in retail category in which 10% shares have been allotted.
In case the company had allotted 35% share for retail investors, it could not have got even 60%
subscription. The retail investors are rushing for withdrawal of forms as they apprehend discounted
On the other hand, lead managers and the promoters are making 11th hour efforts to manage
the issue.

Parag Milk Foods Ltd IPO

On the valuation front, company at higher price band is available at P/E of 45x on post issue as we annualised 9MFY16 earnings; whereas Prabhat Dairy is currently trading at P/E of 46.6x on TTM basis with EPS of Rs 2.4. In our analysis, we see that company looks costly against other peers except Hatsun Agro which is trading at a PE of 57 and Mcap/ sales of 1.5x its trailing four quarters'' revenues.

For retail investors, the sweet spot will be the discount of Rs 12 which will provide instant listing gains. Looking at the company’s fundamentals and valuation we would recommend a long-term perspective to subscribe for this IPO.

Parag Milk Foods Ltd IPO

Thyrocare Techno :- The premiums were at Rs420/466 but came down to 180/185 but after good response to the issue it has touched 220/225. Minimum application rates also touched Rs1300/1350 but came down to 800/850 after the issue getting 73 times subscription. Premiums could be highly volatile on listing.

Ujjivan Fin :- As Thyrocare subscription has been closed, now the market players have
turned to Ujjivan. It may repeat history of Equitas Holdings as the premiums crumbled to 30/32 but have bounced back to 45/48. The application rates have come down from 1200/1300 to 850/ 900

Parag Milk Foods :- It is lacking fancy as investors are interested in Thyrocare and Ujjivan. The preimums have come down to 25/27 from 40/42. The application rates have also come down to 550/600 from 1050/1100. It may get response once Ujjivan''s issue is closed.

Parag Milk Foods Ltd IPO

Parag Milk Foods is one of the leading manufacturers and marketers of dairy-based branded foods in India, with an integrated business model, manufacturing a diverse range of products including cheese, ghee (clarified butter), fresh milk, whey proteins, paneer, curd, yoghurt, milk powders and dairy based beverages targeting a wide range of consumer groups through several brands. The company’s brands are one of its key strengths and that its customers, distributors, stockists and members of the financial community associate its brands with trusted and superior quality products.

On the concern side, the company’s operations are dependent on the supply of large amounts of cow’s raw milk, and its inability to procure adequate amounts of good quality raw milk, at competitive prices, could impact business and financial condition. The company is dependent on a number of key personnel, including its senior management for day to day operations.

The issue has been offered in a price band of Rs 220-427 per equity share. The aggregate size of the offer is around Rs 745.01 crore to Rs 768.72 crore based on lower and upper price band respectively. Minimum application is to be made for 65 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. On performance front, on a consolidated basis the company has posted turnover of Rs 900.54 crore in FY12, Rs 927.15 crore in FY13, Rs 1089.50 crore in FY14 and Rs 1440.52 crore in FY15, while it has registered a net profit of Rs 18.90 crore in FY12, Rs 20.77 crore in FY13, Rs 15.97 crore in FY14 and Rs 25.97 crore in FY15. For first nine months ended December 31, 2015, it has earned net profit of Rs 31.92 crore on a turnover of Rs 1231.19 crore. If one annualized these earnings and attribute to the fully diluted equity post IPO then asking price is at a P/E of 44 plus at the higher price band. The company constantly focuses on research and development to distinguish it from its competitors to enable itself to introduce new products based on consumer preferences and demand. It proposes to set up a research and development centre at its Manchar facility to develop new products and processes and a technology centre at its Subsidiary for training and development activities and focus on animal husbandry. The company intends to increase the share of its value-added product portfolio by focusing on health and nutrition to cater to evolving consumer trends. Going further, the company can increase its margins by focussing on increasing sales of its value-added products.

Parag Milk Foods Ltd IPO

Parag''s consolidated revenues and operating profit have little over doubled to Rs 1438.7 crore and Rs 108 crore respectively in the five years ended FY15. The operating margin, which has remained fairly stagnant at 7.5%, is likely to improve in the quarters ahead - thanks to new players like ITC and M&M. This implies increase in its spend on advertising that currently stands at 2.5% of the revenues.

The issue values Parag at 44 times of its FY16 annualised earning per share of Rs 5.12 per share. The company''s valuation of Rs 2000 crore also stands at 1.2 times of its annualised revenues for FY16. These valuations are fair when compared to its larger listed peer Hatsun Agro Products which is trading at a PE of 57 and at a market cap of 1.5 times its trailing four quarters revenues. Retail investors can consider investing in the issue to partake in the growth of the dairy industry - thanks to the addition of new corporate players and increase in per capita consumption of dairy products.

Ujjivan Financial Services Ltd, the micro-lender which has won a provisional license to be a small finance bank (SFB), is expected to launch its initial public offering (IPO) on 28 April to raise around up to Rs.850-900 crore, three people familiar with the development said.

The price band for the issue is likely to be set between Rs. 207-Rs.210 per share, they said. The details of the IPO, for which it won regulatory approval on 25 February, are likely to be announced at a press meet on Thursday.

Of the total issue size, the company will raise about Rs.350 crore in fresh capital, while existing shareholders will sell 24.96 million shares, with an estimated worth of Rs.514-524 crore.

Even before the IPO opens, Ujjivan’s shares were quoting at a premium of Rs.35-40 per share in the grey market, dealers said.

An email sent to the company’s public relations agency on Wednesday remained unanswered.

On 20 February, Mint reported that the Bengaluru-based SFB-licensee had raised Rs.312.4 crore by issuing shares to a clutch of investors in a private placement round ahead of its planned IPO. The sale transaction valued the firm about Rs.2,150 crore.

HDFC Standard Life Insurance Co. Ltd, Shriram Life Insurance Co. Ltd, Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Co. Ltd, Kotak Mahindra Old Mutual Life Insurance Co. Ltd and mutual fund Sundaram Asset Management Co. Ltd were among the investors that bought Ujjivan’s shares in the private placement to institutional investors.

Ujjivan will have to ensure that overseas shareholding in the company remains at or below 49% to meet one of the conditions set by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to become a small finance bank. This means that foreign investors cannot participate in Ujjivan’s public issue. Foreigners owned 90.57% in the company at the time of filing its draft proposal, Ujjivan said in its draft red herring prospectus.

Earlier this month, shares of Chennai-based microfinance lender Equitas was subscribed more than 17 times. The company raised a little over Rs.1,500 crore from the public issue.

Equitas will debut on the bourses on Tuesday. Its shares, which were issued at Rs.109-110 per share, were quoting a premium of Rs.20-22 per share in the grey market, two dealers said, requesting anonymity.

Equitas Holdings Limited IPO

L&T Infotech -

When contacted, Deepak Morada, VP, L&T told Business Standard: "The reason we have withdrawn the IPO is becaof market conditions. And we want to relook at our pricing. The IT industry undergoes changes on a quarterly basis and it is only fair to investors, in any issue, that they take a call on the financial performance of the most recent quarter."

When asked by when L&T will file a new DRHP with Sebi, Morada said: "At this point I cannot comment. But there is a possibility of we approaching the markets again." On the offer structure and the possibility of it changing in future, he said: "L&T''s stake in the company will come down. How much will it be is yet to be decided. It''s more about price discovery."

The company refused to comment on the changes in offer structure, some of the industry sources said that in the last one quarter the IT services sector has been looking good, which may have made the promoters to relook at the pricing of the IPO. "I think it''s more about price discovery," said a source from the banking industry.

L&T infotech don''t want to come out with IPO, everytime they give some stupid
reason for withdrawing their IPO after filing. Market will anyhow do the price discovery
