Ace Tours Worldwide Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on August 25, 2013

In last two months we witnessed spat of SME platform offerings in primary market and main line IPOs are just waiting for their time. Although we have reports that Wonderla Holidays and ACB India are planning to hit with their IPOs and Engineers India with FPO in the nearer future, we yet another offer from ACE Tours for BSE SME platform. Details of the same are as under:


ATWL is primarily in the business of providing travel and leisure services under one roof covering national/international-inbound/outbound tours, individual/Group and Corporate tours, School Trips, car hiring, travel assistance and ticket bookings, Visa processing etc. etc. With its continued services the company won many accolades such as recognition as an approved tour operator for excellent co-operation and service by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India.


To part finance its proposed Brand Building plans and generate general corpus fund, it is offering 5000000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 16 per share to mobilize Rs. 8 crore. Post issue the equity capital will rise to Rs. 12.67 crore from existing Rs. 7.67 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 26.08.13 and will close on 29.08.13. Minimum application is to be made for 8000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Corporate Strategic Allianz Ltd is the sole lead manager of the issue and Satellite Corporate Services Pvt. Ltd is the registrar. Post issue shares will be listed on BSE SME. In February 2011 it issued 519949 equity shares to BCCL (Benett, Coleman & Co. Limited) at a price of Rs. 21.49 and then in March 2011 issued bonus in the ratio of 35 for 100. Thereafter, between January 2012 - March 2013 it issued approx 5.5 lakh shares in a price range of Rs. 15 and Rs. 16.


On performance front, for the last three fiscals ended 31.03.12 it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.54. For first 11 months ended 28.02.13 it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.22 crore on a turnover of Rs. 16.71 crore translating into an annualized EPS of Rs. 0.02 thus making this offer price at 800+ P/E.


On lead manager’s track record front, it brought three IPOs earlier from Indo Thai, Rushil Décor, Timbor Home wherein we have seen mixed trends post listing with market operations.
