B. C. Power Control Ltd :(BCPCL) is one of the leading players in the Wire & Cable Industry and is among the largest Wire & Cable manufacturers in India. Driven by innovation and heavy investment in Research & Development, the company introduces wires with prime concern on safety, security and durability. In the year 2010, the Company made the backwards integration installing the Copper and Aluminium wire drawing facility which, in turn, added value to the organization in terms of economies of scale and production of Copper and Aluminium wires. BCPCL manufacturers of Wires & Cables which include Armoured Cable, Unarmoured Cable,Flexible & House Wires, Submersible Cable, Control & Instrumentation Cable.


 To meet its working capital and general corpus fund requirements the company is coming out with an IPO of 5760000 equity share of Rs. 10 each with a fixed price of Rs. 18 per share (i.e. with a premium of Rs. 8 per share) to mobilize Rs. 10.37 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 24.02.14 and will close on 28.02.14. Minimum application is to be made for 8000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Shares will be listed on BSE SME. Sarthi Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. is the sole lead manager and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd. is the registrar to the issue.  Its current equity capital is Rs. 6 crore. Post issue it will stand enhanced to Rs.11.76 crore.  On 31.03.2011 and 30.03.2012 it issued 994000 and 906000 equity shares to promoters at a price of Rs. 50 per share and then issued bonus in the ratio of 2 for 1 taking the total equity to Rs. 6 crore.


On performance front, for past three fiscals it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 2.80 on an equity capital of Rs. 2 crore. For six months ended 30.09.13 it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.08 crore on a turnover of Rs. 46.86 crore giving an annualized EPS of Rs. 0.27 and if we attribute this earnings on enhanced equity then EPS comes to Rs. 0.14 per share and this translated the asking price at a P/E of 128+ and at a P/BV of 1+ with NAV at Rs. 16.95 as at 30.09.13.


On the merchant banker’s front, this is the 5th mandate from it in SME sector till date and has mixed trends post listing for earlier four mandates.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy


Avoid this highly priced issue that also has entry barrier.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
