Olympic Cards Ltd. (OCL) is a 50 year old company and currently enjoying Numero Uno status in south in Wedding cards segment. It has over 53% of its total revenue coming from Wedding cards business and rest from Greeting Cards, Envelopes, Calendars, Business Cards, Notebooks etc.
Now the company is setting up a new state of the art unit for Wedding Cards manufacturing and also mulls setting up of own retail outlets and appointing franchises. To part finance the said programmer, the company is offering equity share of Rs. 10 each within a price band of Rs. 30-32 to mobilize Rs. 25 crore.

CRISIL has assigned "IPO Grade 1" to this offer indicating at poor fundamentals of the company. Post issue the shares will be listed only on BSE. This issue represents around 48% dilution of the enhanced equity.
As far as sole BRLM is concerned, out of four IPOs it brought in the past only 2 IPOs managed to reward investors on the debut day. Thus the ratio of success is very poor. Despite this, greed for aggressive pricing is still adhere too.
OCL has posted an average EPS of Rs. 2 for past three years. For the first nine months of the current fiscal it has earned net profit of Rs. 1.93 crore on a turnover of Rs. 32.73 crore. These translate into a P/E of 20 plus on the fully diluted equity post this issue. Although the company claims that the peer industry that are trading at and around 10 P/E are not falling in line of production that OCL has, still aggressive pricing of the IPO makes it a bet only for the risk aver investors to park moderate funds for listing gains, if any.
