The company is selling its products under the brand name 'Goblin'. Besides travel luggage products, GIL also involved in the trading and distribution of various products in multiple verticals such as digital consumer electronics, batteries and torches, office electronics, household items and other commodities to the corporate for the purpose of corporate gifting.

Today GIL is one of the reputed brands, specializing in travelling gears.  It is known for the novel luggage bag vendor at an affordable cost. It has built its trust and goodwill in the field of luggage and corporate gifting. GIL utilizes multiple channels including retail, wholesale, corporate gifting and e-commerce to sell its products. Currently, it has two own exclusive retail outlets in Ahmedabad and one exclusive store in Paris.  Its list of corporate gifting clients includes Corona Remedies, Torrent Pharma, Intas Pharma, IIM-Ahmedabad, Nirma Ltd., Sun Pharma, Cipla, Micro Labs, etc. GIL products are produced by third-party manufacturers located primarily in China as well as in India. Due to the outsourcing of the products, it allows GIL to allocate productions to the most competitive supplied and thus lowering its fixed costs.

To part finance its plans for setting up of manufacturing/assembling of ABS luggage BAGS (Rs. 1.83 cr.), working capital (Rs. 9.20 cr.) and general corpus fund needs, GIL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2924000equity shares of Rs. 10 each via book building route. It has fixed the price band of Rs. 51 - Rs. 52 and mulls mobilizing Rs. 14.91 cr. - Rs. 15.20 cr. (based on lower and upper price bands). The issue opens for subscription on 30.09.19 and will close on 04.10.109. Minimum application is to be made for 2000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue constitutes 27.99% of the post issue paid-up capital of the company. The issue is solely lead managed by Fast Track Finsec Pvt. Ltd. while Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Vijeta Broking India Pvt. Ltd. is the market maker for this issue.

Having issued initial equity at par, GIL issued further equity in the price range of Rs. 20 to Rs. 89.34 per share between August 2004 and June 2019. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 31 for 10 on 06.06.19 and in the ratio of 16 for 10 on 24.06.19. The average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 4.30 and Rs. 5.30 per share. Post issue, GIL's current paid-up equity capital of Rs. 7.52 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 10.44 cr.

On the financial performance front, for the last three fiscals, on a consolidated basis, GIL has posted turnover/ net profits of Rs. 52.44 cr. / Rs. 0.63 cr. (FY17), Rs. 60.94 cr. / Rs. 3.09 cr. (FY18) and Rs. 68.49 cr. / Rs. 3.45 cr. (FY19). The holding period for trade receivables is showing rising trends from 2.05 months for FY18 to 2.15 months for FY20. For the last three fiscals, GIL has posted an average EPS of Rs. 42.16 and an average RoNW of 50.40% (on the basis of pre-bonus equity). The issue is priced at a P/BV of 0.44 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 117.57 as on 31.3.19. However, its current NAV is around Rs. 11 and on this basis, the issue is priced at a P/BV of around 4.73. If we consider FY19 earnings and attribute it to fully diluted post issue equity then asking price is at a P/E of around 15.8 against the industry average of 46.

As per the offer documents, GIL has shown VIP Ind. And Safari Ind. as its listed peers that are currently trading at a P/Es of around 50 and 56 (as on 27.09.19). However, they are not strictly comparable.

On merchant banker's front, this is the 2nd mandate from its stable in the last two fiscals (including the ongoing). The only listing that took place opened at a discount to offer price and thus this merchant banker has a dismal track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

The merchant banker has the dismal track record and the company is way behind the two listed peers in term of volumes. However, considering the novel product portfolio and future plans, GIL is poised for bright prospects going forward. Hence investors may consider investment for the long term.
