Dhruv Wellness BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on August 30, 2017

Dhruv Wellness Ltd. (DWL) is in the business of whole selling and distributorship of general, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. It also functions as a stockiest of medical, general cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. On January 1, 2016, it acquired the business, all the assets including debts, stock, stock-in-trade, movable plant and machinery, trade-marks, designs, patents and licenses and all credits etc. of Dhruv Agency which was in a market for about a decade and had been promoted by it.

To part finance its working capital and general corporate funds needs, DWL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2784000 equity shares of face value of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 20 per equity share to mobilize Rs. 5.57 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 31.08.17 and will close on 04.09.17. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue is solely lead managed by Gretex Corporate Services Pvt. Ltd and Purva Sharegistry (India) Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. The issue will constitute 26.41% of the post issue paid up equity share capital of the company. Having issued initial equity at par it raised further equity in a price range of Rs. 55 to Rs. 60 per share from March 2016 to June 2017 and also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 4 for 1 on 28.06.17. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 7.76 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 10.54 crore.

On performance front, for last two fiscals DWL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 22.72 cr. / Rs. 0.20 cr. (FY16), Rs. 101.94 cr. / Rs. 0.40 cr. (FY17). If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of 52 plus and at a P/BV of 1.65. It has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.48 and Ronw of 5.61% for last two fiscals. Thus issue is highly priced and performance parameters are not supportive to asking price. As claimed by the management, it has no listed peers to compare with.

On merchant banker's front, this is the 5th mandate from its stable and our of last four listings two issues opened at discount, one at par and one with mere premium.

Conclusion: Considering track record and aggressive pricing, there is no harm in giving this IPO a miss.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Considering track record and aggressive pricing of Dhruv Wellness BSE SME IPO, there is no harm in giving this IPO a miss.
