Ahimsa Industries IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 20, 2015

Ahimsa Industries Ltd (AIL) that was primarily engaged in merchant exports of sugar confectionery machinery, moulds and plastic processing machinery has not started manufacture of PET performs and selling  under “Greenpet” brand. AIL’s client list include Railneer, Bisleri, Kingfisher, Royal Stag, RC Cola, City Cola, Big Cola etc.

To meet its working capital requirements, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1518000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 25 per share to mobilize Rs. 3.80 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 24.09.15 and closes on 01.10.15. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Sarathi Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME –Emerge. Post issue its existing paid up equity capital of Rs. 3.96 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 5.47 crore. After at par issue since inception till December 2010, it issued preferential equity at a price of Rs. 500 per share in March 2011, at Rs. 58 in December 2012 and at Rs. 78 per share in February 2015. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 1 for 1 in January 2004 and 5 for 1 in January 2015.

On performance front, the company has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.04 for last three fiscals. For FY15 it has posted net loss of Rs. 0.81 crore on a turnover of Rs. 32.77 crore. Last three fiscals average RONW is negative 1.11. Thus having negative EPS and RONW for FY15 its issue is aggressively priced.

On merchant banker’s front, this is 12th SME IPO from its stable and past mandates have given average rewards post listings.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

If we consider negative EPS for FY15 and RONW, this aggressively priced offer may be given a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
