GCM Capital Advisors Ltd. Is a diversified financial services company mainly engaged in the business of providing financial advisory & consultancy services and engaged in treasury operations by providing funding solutions to its clients both in the form of Debt & Equity and investment activities. It provide integrated solutions to our clients which includes managing crucial aspects like corporate finance, working capital finance, project finance and financial restructuring to corporate. We are primarily focused on small and mid sizes enterprises (SMEs). 


The Company is also engaged in making investment in the form of Debt & Equity in various companies. To meet its financial liquidity and resources to be able to meet demands and opportunities from its development plans the company is offering 4500000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 20 each. The issue opens on 05.05.14 and will close on 07.05.14. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. The issue is lead managed by Inventure Merchant Banker Services Pvt. Ltd and S K Infosolutions Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. 


On performance front, the company has just performed for few months ending February 2014 and has posted an EPS of Rs. 0.61. For the said period, it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.49 crore on a total income of Rs. 1.27 crore on an equity capital of Rs. 12.44 crore that will rise to Rs. 16.94 crore post issue. If we attribute this earning on enhanced equity then the EPS comes to Rs. 0.29 per share and thus asking price translates in to P/E of 68 plus.  


Merchant banker has poor track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy


Avoid this offer that also has entry barrier.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
