Dev Information Technologies Ltd (DITL) is engaged in the Information Technology Industry. The company is providing a range of Information Technology (“IT”) solutions including enterprise solutions, e-governance solutions, ERP and CRM Implementation, IT – infrastructure services, website development, web hosting solutions and licensing solutions. Also the company is into custom software development with well-defined processes to support its clients and partners in –web portals, web & mobile applications, responsive websites, their SEO & Social Media Marketing as well as Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM. In addition to above DITL also provides end-to-end IT services with strong managed IT team to monitor and manage customer’s servers and infrastructure - 24x7.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 14,88,000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 42 per share to mobilize Rs. 6.25 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 31.03.17 and will close on 06.04.17. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Hem Securities Ltd and Link Intime India Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Most of its equity is issued at par and 56500 shares issued as other than cash at a consideration of Rs. 414.16 per share in February 2017. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 8 for 1 (in March 2013), 1 for 2 (in April 2016) and 4 for 1 (in March 2017). Its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 4.03 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 5.52 crore post issue.

On performance front, the company has (on a consolidated basis) posted revenue/net profits of Rs. 43.32 cr. /Rs. 0.57 cr. (FY13), Rs. 57.56 cr. / Rs. 1.11 cr. (FY14), Rs. 45.95 cr. / Rs. 1.27 cr. (FY15) and Rs. 46.45 cr. / Rs. 2.06 cr. (FY16). For the first half of the current fiscal it has earned net profit of Rs. 1.16 crore on revenue of Rs. 20.02 crore. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute on the fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 10 and P/BV of 1 plus against industry composite P/E of around 18. Thus issue appears to have been priced reasonably.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 31st mandate from its stable since FY 13-14. Last 10 IPOs (excluding Laxmi Cotspin) have given some rewards on listing date (as per prospectus details).

Conclusion: Reasonable pricing and the bottom line growth makes this issue worth considering for medium to long term.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Reasonable pricing and the bottom line growth makes this issue worth considering for medium to long term.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.
