While we have 10th BSE SME platform IPO of Comfort Commotrade opening on 05.09.12, we have first IPO from Thejo Engineering Ltd for listing on NSE (SME) EMERGE platform.. Thus with this issue, NSE is breaking the ice for small IPOs. Details of this IPO are as under:
Thejo Engineering Ltd. (TEL) is the Chennai based light engineering company engaged in providing engineering solutions for bulk material handling, mineral processing and corrosion protection in core sectors like mining, power, steel, cement, ports, fertilizers etc. Thus it is one of the few companies in sub continent offering all major solutions under one roof. The Company has 4 manufacturing units in and around Chennai with a pan India presence through 11 branch offices and 36 site offices. TEL's presence through partnerships and distribution network extends across Australia, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the USA, Germany, Chile, Brazil and Ghana.
The company now mulls expansion in global reach and setting up subsidiary at Australia, putting up a manufacturing unit for polyurethane for captive consumption, setting up a lining division and general corpus fund. To part finance this to the tune of Rs. 21 crore, the company is offering around 488370 equity shares of Rs. 10 each within a price band of Rs. 402-430. Issue opens for subscription on 04.09.12 and will close on 06.09.12. Post allotment; the shares will be listed on NSE EMERGE platform. Issue is lead managed by IDBI Capital Market Services Ltd. and Cameo Corporate Services Ltd is the registrar to the issue. CRISIL has rated this IPO as "SME 5/5" indicating excellent fundamentals of the company. Thus even though rating was not mandatory, the company has gone for it for more transparency.
As far as Lead Manager's track records are concern, out of last 16 IPO mandates it has only 50% IPOs gave listing gains. Thus it has 50:50 ratio of success.
On the performance front, TEL has posted an average EPS of Rs. 52.32 for the last three fiscals. For the year 2011-12 EPS stands at Rs. 76.17. The company issued 1 for 2 bonuses in 1994 and 2001. Its current equity of Rs. 1.24 crore is supported by free reserves of Rs. 28.76 crore. Even if we take fully diluted equity post IPO the issue is being made at a P/E of around 8 and below 2 P/BV. Thus the issue is low risk-high return one.
