To part finance working capital requirements and general corpus fund needs, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2960000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at par to mobilize Rs. 2.96 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 30.09.16 and will close on04.10.16. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue is solely managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd. Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. After initial equity capital issue at par it has issued bonus shares in the ratio of 800 for every 1 share held. Post issue its current paid up equity capital of RS. 8.01 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 10.97 crore.

On performance front, for last four fiscals, it has posted total income/net profit of Rs. 12.12 cr./ Rs. 1.71 cr. (FY13), Rs. 9.95 cr. / Rs. 1.35 cr. (FY14), Rs. 10.02 cr. / Rs. 1.22 cr. (FY15) and Rs. 16.51 cr. / Rs. 2.10 cr. (FY16). Its top and bottom line has shown inconsistency. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post IPO then asking price is at a P/E of 5 plus and at a below 1 P/BV. Thus this issue can be considered as a safe bet. As per prospectus, it has no listed peer to compare with.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 28th mandate from its stable and past mandates have shown mixed trends.

Conclusion: Investors may consider investment for short to long term in this at par IPO.
