Anshu's Clothing Limited IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 22, 2012

Well, secondary market has seen up move to mark the 58 week high on last Friday and main IPOs are still keeping away from primary market, we are seeing just a dozen odd SME platform IPOs mobilizing around 150 crore and some NCD (Debt) Issues that mulled mobilization of Rs. 3000 crore.  During the week first ever EMERGE-NSE/SME platform IPO routed through book building process failed to perform despite improved sentiment of secondary market. On this Monday Comfort Commotrade is getting listed on BE/SME platform. No doubt, Government of India has dared to announce RINL maiden IPO that is likely to open on 16.10.12 and close on 18.10.12, the details on pricing is still waited for. Amidst such scenario, we have one more BSE SME IPO from Anshu's Clothing. Details of the same are as under:


Bhandari group from Ahmedabad is floating an IPO of Anshu's Clothing Ltd. that will offer 1872000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a price of Rs. 27 per share (i.e. including a premium of Rs. 17 per share) to mobilize Rs. 5.05 crore from primary market, just to meet its long term supply funding. The issue opens for subscription on 26.09.12 and will close on 28.09.12. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereof. First Call India Equity Advisors Pct Ltd is the sole manager to this offer and Cameo Corporate Services Ltd. is the registrar to the issue.

On performance front, the company has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.61 for past three fiscals on existing equity. In particular the EPS for fiscal 2011-12 stands at Rs. 1.29. Its NAV as on 31.03.12 is Rs. 28.53 post 1 for 2 bonus in March 2012. Thanks to placement at a price of Rs. 20 in 2005 and 2006 and at Rs. 300 in August 2010 and at par soon thereafter and at a price of Rs. 500 per share in March 2012 before bonus issue. Thus the NAV is on account of these premiums, but based on performance, the asking price is at a very high P/E of 27 plus on fully diluted equity.  On lead manager's front, this is the first IPO mandate and hence no track record of past mandate performances.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Give it a MISS

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
