As now budget countdown has begun, main stream IPOs are taking a pose, but BSE SME platform IPO marks hat trick with the third IPO of Channel Nine Entertainment Ltd. opening on 22.02.13. Details of this IPO are as under:

This Delhi based company was incorporated in 2002 and is engaged in the production, distribution of films, television serials, corporate/feature films, documentaries and marketing of sports and entertainment events. It has to its credit distribution of 19 films and 5 TV Serials so far.

Now it mulls financing of two films production, strengthening its distribution network and brand building exercise and to part finance these, it is offering 4668000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 25 per share. The issue opens for subscription on 22.02.2013 and will close on 26.02.2013. Issue is lead managed by Guiness Corporate Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Beetal Financial and Computer Services Pvt. Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and n multiples thereof thereafter. Post allotment, its shares will be listed on BSE SME platform.

Being capital intensive industry, after raising initial capital at par, it made preferential allotment of equity during 2002 to 2011 in a different price band of Rs. 23 -750 and has also issued the bonus shares in the ratio of 3 shares for every 1 share held in November 2012 that enhanced the equity base to Rs. 10.68 crore which will further rise to Rs. 15.51 crore post this issue. However the preferred to give financial details till 31.10.2012 on old equity so that it can expressed some positive data.  Its NAV as on 31.10.12 of Rs. 113 gets diluted to Rs. 14.14 post bonus and IPO and thus it is an expensive offer.

The company's average EPS for last three fiscal stands at Rs. 0.36 and for the period ended 31.10.2012 at Rs. 0.76 which is on old equity on pre-bonus basis. If we attribute the hike post bonus and the IPO, EPS will get drastically diluted to a level of Rs. 0.01 and thus its asking price will be around 2500 P/E. Its lead manager has On its Merchant Banker's track record front, it had managed 3 IPOs in the past out of which 2 IPOs gave negative return on listing.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

 Better to avoid this expensive offer.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
