To avail listing benefits and providing liquidity to stakeholders, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO under 'Offer for Sale' with 471200 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 330 per share to mobilize Rs. 15.55 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 27.07.15 and will close on 30.07.15. Minimum application is to be made for 400 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Hem Securities Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue.  This being offer for sale, its equity remains at Rs.1.78 crore post issue. Shares will be listed on BSE SME after allotments.

On performance front, for last three fiscals, the company has posted and average EPS of Rs. 30.61 with turnover/net profits of Rs. 35.65 crore/Rs. 8.35 crore (FY 2012), Rs. 31.52 crore/Rs. 4.92 crore (FY 2013) and Rs. 30.01 crore/Rs. 5.74 crore on an equity base of Rs. 0.85 crore. Post incorporation till 1996 it issued equity shares at par, in 1998 it issued the same at Rs. 24 per share, in 2008 it issued fresh equity at a price of Rs. 150, in 2014 it bought back equity at a price of Rs. 192 per share and in March 2015 it issued bonus shares in the ratio of 1.5 shares for every 1 share held that took its paid up equity capital to Rs. 1.78 crore. For 10months ended 31.01.15, It has posted net profit of Rs. 8.64 crore on a turnover of Rs. 32.54 crore. If we annualize these earnings and attribute it on fully diluted current equity, then the EPS stands at Rs. 58.26 translating in to asking price at a P/E of 6. As per prospectus, on equity of Rs. 0.85 crore, its asking price is at a P/E of 10+ and at a P/BV of 1. Thus the issue appears justifiably priced. However, its inconsistent performance for last three fiscals raises concern. 

On merchant banker's front, this is 14th IPO from its stable and past listed mandates have given average returns in 11 out of 13.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Emkay Taps is a long term bet. The EPS stands at Rs. 58.26 translating in to asking price at a P/E of 6. Its asking price is at a P/E of 10+. Thus the issue appears justifiably priced.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.
