It is engaged in Aluminum products such as Extrusions, Ladder Section, Billets, Profile, Section and Electronic Extrusion, Ingots, Shots, Alloys Ingots that meet stringent quality norm's at the most competitive prices with constant product enhancements along with utmost commitment towards quality control and customer service. BMAL's facilities are located at Himachal Pradesh (kala-amb), Gujarat (Bhavnagar), and Maharashtra (Sangli) with modern and latest machinery. It has in house foundry with modern melting furnace including fully automatic hot top casting technology. To raise working capital and general corpus funds, the company is coming out with a fixed price IPO of 4884000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a price of Rs. 25 per share (including offer for sale of 2292000 equity shares). Issue opens for subscription on 12th March and will close on 14th March 2013. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereof thereafter. Post allotment the shares will be listed no BSE SME. Issue is lead managed by Sarthi Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Sharex Dynamic India Pvt. Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Between 2007 & 2011 the company made preferential allotment of shares in the price range of Rs. 20 to Rs. 70 per share and has also issued bonus in the ratio of 4 for 1 in October 2010 and 1 for 1 in July 2011.

On company's performance front, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 2.35 for last three fiscals with inconsistent bottom line and NAV is Rs. 13.08 as at 31.3.2012.  For six months ended 30.09.12 it has posted an EPS of Rs. 3.53 on an equity base of Rs. 15.91 crore. Post issue equity will rise to Rs. 18.51 crore translating into an EPS of Rs.3.03 for the said earnings resulting into P/E of 8 plus making it a costly bet compared to its peer's trading around 4 to 5 P/E.

Perhaps this is the first mandate for the Lead manager as no track record is available for past mandates.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Considering the fate of SME IPOs post listing, despite market making, skipping of this issue is advisable.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
