Stay away from IPO Retail investors. The markets are playground for Institutional sharks and retail investors stand to gain little unless there is a sustained bull run. This being the case for established stocks, the unknown IPOs become even riskier bets. Gone are the good old days when IPOs were priced at face value or conservatively thus providing handsome returns. Nowadays every IPO is overpriced be it Govt PSUs or Top honchos like Ambanis or the B/C grade company - everyone are out to make a quick buck in the IPO market. There used to be very lively discussions on IPOs in the good old days but most of those users have quit posting comments due to this very reason. You might still make money in 1 or 2% of the stocks, but that still makes the IPO market a riskier investment than Casinos and Gambling!!! Remember its your hard earned money going down the drain only to benefit a greedy promoter. SEBI can only mimic Poodle singh and watch the show rather than take affirmative action.

VKS Projects: High valuation, poor fundamentals make IPO unattractive
30 Jun, 2012, 05.55PM IST, Suraj Sowkar,ET Bureau

High valuation and poor fundamentals make VKS Projects' initial public offer (IPO) unattractive in the current market. Investors are advised to avoid this IPO.


VKS Projects is a small-sized engineering, procurement and construction ( EPC) company engaged in fabrication and erection of key industry equipment. It caters to various companies in the oil and gas, pharma, power and textiles sectors.


VKS Projects intends to raise Rs 55 crore through this public issue to finance its expansion plans. Out of the total proceeds, 41% would be used for financing construction equipment and machineries, 27% for long-term working capital requirement, 18% for setting up of design studios and the rest for general corporate expenses.


The company's revenues have grown at a CAGR of 107% between FY07 and FY11. Although this looks impressive, it has not been able to generate a positive operating cash flow since the last five years. This is due to its trade receivables which have been growing at a faster rate.

In the nine months ended December 2011, its account receivables formed 65% of its revenues. Any further deterioration in cash flows would further impact the company's profitability. In addition, the current order book of the company is Rs 98 crore, which is nearly equal to the revenues in nine months ended December 2011.

As most of its projects are to be completed within the next twelve months, its current order book would provide a reasonable revenue visibility for the current financial year. To maintain its past growth record, the company would have to its increase its order book in the near term.


Based on its FY11 earnings, the stock at the upper price band of Rs 60 is placed at a post issue P/E of 6.4.

Its peers in the industry like McNally Bharat Engineering Company and Petron Engineering, which are more established in the industry, are trading at a P/E of 5.1 and 4.4, respectively. The price band looks expensive due to its weak fundamentals and relatively small size of the company.
