Review By Dilip Davda on October 5, 2017

D.P. Abhushan Ltd. (DPAL) is engaged in the retail business of various jewelleries and ornaments made out of gold, diamonds and platinum studded with precious and semi-precious stones. Company's product portfolio includes rings, earrings, armlet, pendants, gajrahs, nose rings, bracelets, chains, necklaces, bangles and other wedding jewellery. As on filing of offer documents, it has four showrooms under the 'D.P. Jewellers' brand located in four different cities of India i.e. Ratlam, Indore, Bhopal and Udaipur. All of these showrooms are operated and managed by it, and has been taken on rental basis. Further, it has plans to expand its retail network by opening another showroom in Indore, Madhya Pradesh by the end of October'17, for which it has purchased area comprising of 10,395 sq ft. at DNR 90, Mahatama Gandhi Marg, Yashwant Niwas Road, Indore. The manufacturing of jewellery products are done through job work from third parties. Further, DPAL also purchases readymade jewellery from independent jewelers. It has also entered into an agreement dated May 05, 2015 with R.S. Diamonds Private Limited for sale of diamond jewelleries under brand of 'Divine Solitaires' from its retail outlets.

DPAL has also installed 5 wind turbine generators of 750 KW each in Village Bagia & Naveli, Ratlam, Madhya Pradesh in Sept.'12. In Jan.'13, the Company entered into an agreement with MPPMCL (M.P. Power Management Co. Ltd.) for exclusive sale of power, generated from wind turbine generators to MPPMCL. Company has outsourced all operations and maintenance activities relating to wind turbines to a third party.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, DPAL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 5932000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each with a fixed price of Rs. 28 per share to mobilize Rs.16.61 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 09.10.17 and will close on 11.10.17. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue constitutes 26.65% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Hem Securities Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Company's entire current equity capital is raised at par. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 16.32 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 22.25 crore.

On performance front, DPAL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 409.45 cr. / Rs. 2.15 cr. (FY14), Rs. 459.89 cr. / Rs. 1.31 cr. (FY15), Rs. 488.22 cr. / Rs. 3.25 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 453.71 cr. / Rs. 4.88 cr. (FY17). For 31 days ended on 01.05.17 of the current fiscal, it has reported net profit of Rs. 0.80 crore on a turnover of Rs. 75.90 crore. DPAL has posted growth in top lines from FY14 to 16 and seen decline in FY17. Its bottom line too suffered in FY 15. Thus it has shown inconsistency in performance. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.05. It has posted an average EPS of Rs. 2.29 and average RoNW of 19.15% for last three fiscals. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 7 against industry average of 45. Thus issue is priced reasonably.

On merchant banker's front, this is the 41st mandate from its stable so far. Out of last 10 recent listings, 1 issue opened at discount, 2 at a premium of 2.5 to 5% and the rest with 20% premium to offer price on the day of listing.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Investors may consider investment for medium to long term in D. P. Abhushan NSE SME IPO. The asking price is at a P/E of around 7 against industry average of 45. Thus issue is priced reasonably.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.
