Carewell Industries Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on July 21, 2014

Carewell Industries Limited (CIL)-(formerly known as PL Chemicals Private Limited) is engaged in marketing of “Rooster” brand mosquito repellent coils and the brand name “ROOSTER” is owned by its wholly owned subsidiary, CKM Homecare Solutions Private Limited. It is also engaged in the marketing of incense sticks (agarbattis) in the brand name “Deo” and “Samraj”.

CIL gets products manufactured from third party manufacturers under its own brand and market it through the network of dealers and distributors. Currently, its products are sold in South India. To meet its working capital requirements and brand building exercise, the company is coming out with its maiden IPO of 3304000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 15 per share to raise Rs. 4.96 crore.  The issue opens for subscription on 25.07.14 and will close on 30.07.14. Minimum application is to be made for 8000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Inventure Merchant Banker Services Pvt Ltd. And Purva Sharegistry (India) Pvt Ltd. Post issue shares will be listed on BSE SME.

Till fiscal 2011-12, the company has been incurring losses and for the fiscal 2012-13, it posted an EPS of Rs. 0.01. Thanks to the preferential issue of equity shares to promoters at a price of Rs. 35 (219330 shares) on 10.03.12 and Rs. 15 (400000 sharees) on 11.03.14 that lifted the NAV to Rs. 12.12 as on 28.02.14. For 11 months period ended on the said date the company posted a turnover of Rs. 0.88 crore with a net profit of Rs. 0.05 crore. If we attribute this earning on expanded equity of Rs. 7.10 crore post this issue, the EPS comes to below Rs. 0.01 and based on this the asking price is at a P/E of 1500 plus.

Lead manager has poor track record for its earlier nine mandates of SME IPOs.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy


Remark: Avoid this costly bet that also has entry barriers.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
