Secondary market is seeing some positive undercurrent for past two weeks amidst reshuffling of portfolios at the centre. But still we are not seeing any book building process IPO hitting the market for fund mobilization. It is only the SME platform IPOs are managing for fort for a while. No doubt so far out of four listing, we have only seen some abnormal trading on the counter of Max Alert, otherwise all other SME listed companies are faring averagely and maintaining their price level due to compulsion of market making mechanics.
Now we have one more IPO entering this week. Jointeca Education Solutions Ltd. (JESL), a Mathura based company providing a range of IT solutions for achieving superior business results in areas of Enterprise Application Solutions and Integrated IT Solutions since 2001. To part finance its product expansion plan, it is offering 3568700 equity share of Rs. 10 each with premium of Rs. 5 per share (i.e. at a price of Rs. 15 per share) to mobilize Rs. 5.35 crore. Minimum application is to be made for 8000 shares and in multiples thereof. Issue is opening for subscription on 16.08.12 and will close on 21.08.12. Ajcon Global Services Ltd is the Lead Manager and Beetal Financial & Computer Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the offer. The shares will be listed on BSE SME exchange.
Except for the initial subscription of 5000 shares, all other offers to promoters and their group is made at Rs. 15 per share and that has helped it to post NAV of Rs. 14.97. Post issue the equity capital will be Rs. 10 crore and there are doubts of capital servicing by the company in the medium to long term.
As the company is in operation from May 2011, its EPS for the fiscal 2011-12 was just at Rs. 025 per share thus on the existing equity base, the asking price is at a P/E of 60 and thus it is exorbitantly priced. If we count the IPO proceeds, then the P/E can go much higher. Lead Manager's track record in not available.
Only risks aver HNIs can dare to park their funds in this high cost offer for listing gains if any. Based on track record, the gain is negligible despite market making arrangements.
