Aarvi Encon Ltd. (AEL) is a human resources service company offering people solutions to businesses. AEL delivers unparalleled level of world class Engineering and Manpower Outsourcing services with an intimate understanding of the Indian Economy and business environment. Manpower is the most crucial asset of any organization. Company is providing services to corporate in Oil & Gas, Power, Refinery/Petrochemicals, Pipeline, Infrastructure sectors in India and abroad. Cllient list included Reliance Industries, Cairn India, HPCL Mittal, Bechtel etc.

To part finance working capital, acquisitions and strategic initiatives, general corpus fund needs, AEL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3934000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each with a fixed price of Rs. 54 per share to mobilize Rs. 21.24 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 21.09.17 and will close on 26.09.17. Minimum application is to be made for 2000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Sarthi Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 26.61% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Cost of acquisition by promoters is just around Rs. 0.12 per share. It has issued entire equity at par and also bonus shares in the ratio of 30 for 1 in March 2009 and 5 for 2 in July 2017. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 10.85 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 14.78 crore.

On performance front, AEL has (on consolidated basis) reported turnover/net profits of Rs.Rs. 99.16 cr. / Rs. 4.73 cr. (FY14), Rs. 115.61 cr. / Rs. 6.42 cr. (FY15), Rs. 110.77 cr. / Rs. 2.53 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 153.51 cr. / Rs. 5.34 cr. (FY17). Thus it suffered a setback for FY16 and also pressure on margins for FY17. For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 4.22 and RoNW of 14.13 % (on the paid up equity capital of Rs. 3.10 crore). Issue is priced at a P/BV of Rs. 1.65. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted post issue equity then asking price is at a P/E of around 15 against peers trading at a P/ E of 36 to 100. Thus issue pricing appears reasonable.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 32nd mandate from its stable and out of last 10 listings 2 got listed at discount, 1 at par, and the balance 7 with a premium ranging from 3 to 131 per cent on the day of listing.

Conclusion: Considering reasonable pricing, investment may be considered for medium to long term.
