Bombay Super Hybrid Seeds Ltd.

It has a net work of 350 dealers and also has seed processing unit and seed testing laboratory.  

To part finance its repayment of loan, working capital and general corpus fund needs, BSHS is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1732000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 60 per share to mobilize Rs. 10.39 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 12.04.18 and will close on 17.04.18. Minimum application is to be made for 2000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Monarch Networth Capital Ltd. and Skyline Financial Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 26.41% of post issue paid up capital of the company. After raising initial equity at par, it raised further equity at a price of Rs. 17 per share. Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 12.72 and Rs. 12.97 per share. Post issue, its current paid up capital of Rs. 4.83 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 6.56 crore.

On performance front, BSHS has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 30.13 cr. / Rs. 0.25 cr. (FY14), Rs. 31.33 cr. / Rs. 0.04 cr., (FY15), Rs. 63.13 cr. / Rs. 0.27 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 109.70 cr. / Rs. 0.80 cr. (FY17). For first nine months of the current fiscal, it has earned net profits of Rs. 0.87 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 72.91 cr. Thus for FY14 and FY15 it posted static turnover with wild swing in bottom lines. Thereafter, it has marked steady growth in top and bottom lines. For last three fiscals it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.47 and an average RoNW of 11.54%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 3.77 based on its NAV of Rs. 15.91 as on 31.12.17. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue then asking price is at a P/E of around 34 against industry average of 30. As per offer documents, it has shown listed peers as Mangalam Seeds, Kaveri Seeds, Monsanto, R J Bio, Camson Seeds, Omega AG that are trading at a P/E of around 37, 26, 33,NA, 14, 500 respectively as on 06.04.18 closings. Considering industry average, issue is aggressively priced.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 6th mandate from its stable in last six fiscals. Out of last 5 listings, 1 opened at par and the rest 4 with a premium ranging from  1.4% to 45% on the day of listing. IPO of VCU Data that opened at Rs. 36.25 against offer price of Rs. 25 per share is currently trading around Rs. 14 per share (as on 04.04.18).

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Although company has shown better top and bottom lines for recent years, considering aggressive pricing, cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.
