Agrimony Commodities Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on January 28, 2014


While main line IPOs are still seating on the fence even when market witnessed new higher benchmarks in secondary market simply due to lack of confidence in primary market operators/merchant bankers and the corporate at large, we have SME IPOs at regular intervals. Agrimony Commodities is the second SME IPO of CY 2014, details of the same are as under:




Agrimony Commodities (Erstwhile Transparent Commodities Pvt. Ltd.) is currently engaged in the business of trading of iron & steel products, suiting & shirting and other dress materials and agriculture products. Thus it is a multi-product trading company with a diverse product portfolio. It is in the process of adding the new products and also enhancing the portfolio within the existing categories.




The Company has plans to engage in buying and selling of various Agricultural as well as Non – Agricultural Commodities through Local Mandis and Markets and/or Exchanges either for arbitrage and/or investment as and when there is a suitable opportunity. It offers the commodity broking services through our subsidiary company Advantage Commodities Private Limited (ACPL). ACPL is engaged in the business of commodities broking through its membership of MCX. Our Company acquired shares of ACPL on August 13, 2013. ACPL has applied to MCX for approval for change in shareholding pattern amounting to change in management. The application is currently pending with MCX.




To augment the new plans, it is offering 3020000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at par to mobilize Rs. 3.02 crore. The IPO opens for subscription on 31.01.14 and will close on 04.02.14. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME.




On performance front, it has marked in-consistency. For seven eight months of the current fiscal ended 30.11.13 it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.06 crore on a turnover of Rs. 13.57 crore. For earlier three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.42 on an equity capital of Rs. 0.10 crore (as at 31.03.13) which stands enhanced to Rs. 5.57 crore on 30.10.13 and then to Rs. 8.37 crore on 13.12.13 with at par preferential issues to promoter group. This will further enlarge to Rs. 11.39 crore after this issue. So if one attribute first eight months earnings on enlarged equity post issue, it translates in an offer at a P/E of 125 even at par value.




Unicon Capital Services Pvt. Ltd. is the lead manager to this IPO and Purva Shareregistry (India) Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to this offer.

My reviews do not cover GMP market and operators game plans. Readers must consult a qualified financial advisor before making any actual investment decisions, based the on information published here. With entry barriers, SEBI wants only well-informed investors to participate in such offers. With crazy listings in the recent past, SME IPOs drew the attention of investors across the board and lead to seer madness. However, as SME issues have entry barriers and continued low preference from the broking community, any reader taking decisions based on any information published here does so entirely at their own risk. The above information is based on information available as of date coupled with market perceptions. The Author has no plans to invest in this offer.
