Dhanuka Commercial Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on May 19, 2014

Dhanuka Commercial is a Non Deposit taking Non-systemically Important Non Banking Finance Company (NBFC-ND-NSI) engaged primarily in the business of advancing loans and investing/trading in securities. It has been running on a modest operating scale till 2012 – 2013. To augment its capital base and meet need of corpus funds for its activities, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO for 4440000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at par to mobilize Rs. 4.44 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 22.05.14 and will close on 28.05.14. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Aryaman Financial Services Ltd and MAS Services Ltd is the registrar to the issue. During March 2001 to March 2007 the company issued equity shares at a price between Rs. 30 and Rs. 100 per share and then in January 2014 issued bonus shares worth Rs. 10.52 crore utilizing share premium of Rs. 12.70 crore standing to its credit by then. Thus its equity of Rs. 1.78 crore as at 31.12.2013 enhanced to Rs. 12.30 crore. Post this issue it will further rise to Rs. 16.74 crore.

The company has posted a net profit of Rs. 0.31 crore for the nine months period ended December 31, 2013 and  Rs. 0.09 crore for the year ended March 31, 2013 on the revenue of Rs. 1.03 crore and Rs. 1.24 crore respectively. Thus if one attribute the latest earnings on its enhanced equity then the EPS stands at mere Rs. 0.01 and thus asking price at par is also at a P/E of 1000 and thus it is not worth on this parameter at least. It is operating in high risk/low yield segment and in highly competitive area.

The merchant banker has poor track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

 Avoid this at par issue as it has entry barrier as well as high P/E.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
