Escorp Asset Management BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on March 25, 2017

Escorp Asset Management Ltd (EAML) is a subsidiary of Aryaman Financial group that is engaged in financial service sector. EAML is a asset management arm of the group that has also applied to SEBI for registration as Portfolio Manager that is under process. It proposes to utilize the group’s growing network and intellect and cross sell our products / services as well as add new clients and client groups in the ambit of the group. In line with the group’s current strength; EAML aims to position itself within the investment community as an alternative asset management company with unique focus on SME sector and its growth opportunities. Further the company proposes to provide professional global standard services in fields of financial planning and tax advisory; which according to EAML are being serviced currently in India in a highly unorganized manner.

To part finance its repayment of loan plans and general corpus fund needs, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2160000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 15 per share to mobilize Rs. 3.24 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 31.03.17 and will close on 06.04.17. Minimum application is to be made for 8000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue is solely lead managed by BCB Brokerage Pvt Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. From incorporation till May 2016 it issued equity at par. In August 2016 it raised further equity at a price of Rs. 15 per share. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 4.51 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 6.67 crore.

On performance front, for last two fiscals the company has posted total revenue/net profits of Rs. 0.05 lakh / Rs. 0.01 lakh (FY15) and Rs. 0.26 lakh / Rs. 0.16 lakh (FY16). For the first half of the current fiscal it has earned net profit of Rs. 2.99 lakh on total revenue of Rs. 9.74 lakh. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it to fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of 166 plus against industry composite of 24 and at a P/BV of around 1.2 plus making it a costly bet.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 4th mandate from its stable in last three fiscals and earlier issued have shown mixed trends.

Conclusion: Considering group’s weak image and the average workings so far, one may give it a miss.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Considering group’s weak image and the average workings so far, one may give it a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
