Airan NSE SME IPO review (May apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on March 9, 2017

Airan Ltd was primarily engaged in the activities of computer coaching. Currently the company is in Information Technology (IT) and Information Technology (IT) enabled services including Banking transaction processing services and Document management services for telecommunication companies, internet services provider, payment banks etc.

To part finance its working capital, capital expenditure and general corpus fund needs, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3300000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 45 per share to mobilize Rs. 14.85 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 14.03.17 and will close on 16.03.17. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge platform. Issue is solely lead managed by Swastika Investmart Ltd and Karvy Computershare Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue.

From 1995 (MoA) to 2006 it issued all equity at par. Thereafter, it issued further equity at a price ranging from Rs. 130 to Rs. 150 from 2006 to 2011. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 9 for 1 in March 2011 and in the ratio of 1 for 1 in January 2017. Its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 9.20 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 12.50 crore post issue.

On performance front, the company has posted revenue/net profits of Rs. 11.74 cr. / Rs. 0.81 cr. (FY13) , Rs. 14.57 cr. / Rs. 0.86 cr. (FY14), Rs. 19.58 cr. / Rs. 0.81 cr. (FY15) and Rs. 26.88 cr. / Rs. 1.45 cr. (FY16). For the seven months ended on 31.10.16 of current fiscal it has reported net profit of Rs. 1.29 crore on a total revenue of Rs.17.41 crore. If we annualize these earnings and attribute to fully diluted post issue equity of Rs. 12.50 then asking price is at a P/E of around 25 plus making it a pricy offer. Its peers are trading around same or little lower P/Es.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 2nd mandate from its stable and the last issue gave some returns on the listing day.

Conclusion: Only risk savvy cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.
