Amsons Apparels Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on December 12, 2014

Amsons Apparels Ltd. (AAL): The Company is currently engaged in the business of trading of fabrics. It’s a multi-product fabric trading Company and its range includes fabrics for Silk, Polyester, Lace Fabrics, Netting Fabrics, Coarse Cotton Fabric, suiting, shirting, linen, jute and other fabrics. AAL primarily cater to retailers in Delhi and NCR Regions, wherein it supply mid range of unstitched fabrics. 


To meet its working capital and general corpus fund requirement, the company is coming out with its maiden IPO of 3250000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at par to mobilize Rs. 3.25 crore. Its present equity of Rs. 9.03 crore will rise to Rs. 12.28 crore post this issue. Issue opens for subscription on 16.12.14 and will close on 22.12.14. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by BCB Brokerage Pvt Ltd. and Beetal Financial & Computer Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. 


On performance front, the company has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.45 for last three fiscals. For the fiscal ended 31.03.14 it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.04 crore on a turnover of Rs. 3.21 translating into an EPS of Rs. 0.09 on an equity base of Rs. 4.78 crore. For first half of current fiscal it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.02 crore on a turnover of Rs. 2.26 crore translating in to an EPS of Rs. 0.04 on an equity base of Rs. 9.03 crore.  Based on first half numbers, if we attribute earnings on fully diluted equity post this issue, even at par value asking price is at a whooping 250 P/E. 


On merchant banker’s front, this is the second mandate and it has poor track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Although this IPO is at par value, considering high P/E and low preference for SME IPOs among investors and broking community, only HNIs with surplus fund can invest at their own discretion keeping in mind the entry and exit barriers.
