Minimum application is to be made for 8000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue opens for subscription on 28.11.16 and will close on05.12.16. Issue is solely managed by Guiness Corporate Advisors Pvt Ltd and Cameo Corporate Services Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. After initial equity issue at par during 2000-2007 and at par rights issue in March 2016, it issued few shares at a price of Rs. 15 to Rs. 30 per share between 2008- 2013. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 2 for 1 in March 2016. Post IPO its current paid up equity of Rs. 10.27 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 14.11 crore.
On performance front, the company has posted turnover/net profit of Rs. 124.62 cr. / Rs. 0.73 cr. (FY14), Rs. 179.18 cr. / Rs. 1.13 cr. (FY15) and Rs. 240.71 cr. / Rs. 1.18 cr. (FY16). For first quarter of the current fiscal, it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.54 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 113.11 cr. If we annualize these earnings and attribute on fully expanded equity post IPO then asking price is at a P/E of 9 plus that appears to be reasonable. However, many mega brands are not doing up to the mark in retail chains and company is likely to face competition going forward. As per prospectus, the company has no listed peers to compare with.
On merchant banker’s front, this is the 25th mandate. It has erratic track records for the past as five of its mandate getting suspension from trading.
