Godha Cabcon NSE SME IPO review (May apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on April 21, 2018

Godha Cabcon & Insulation Ltd. (GCIL) is one of the leading manufacturers of ACSR/AAAC/AAC Conductors in the State of Madhya Pradesh at Indore and have latest machines having best technology. The company is all set to continue its growth momentum with higher installed capacity and good order book position. The prospects are even brighter in view of future procurement plan of state electricity companies. GCIL is also targeting Power Grid Corporation of India Limited to bring its products at national level. It was a proprietary concern till July 2017 and thereafter taken over by the company. It has installed capacity of 15000 MTPA.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, GCIL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3000000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each via book building route with a price band of Rs. 30 – Rs. 33 to mobilize Rs. 9.00 to Rs. 9.90 crore (based on lower and upper price bands). Issue opens for subscription on 27.04.18 and will close on 03.05.18. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Mark Corporate Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Karvy Computershare Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 27.03% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. After raising initial equity at par, it raised further equity at a price of Rs.30 per share. Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 10.00, Rs. 15.05 and Rs. 29.58 per share.  Post issue its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 8.10 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 11.10 crore.

On performance front, as a proprietary concern it has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 16.81 cr. / Rs. 0.15 cr. (FY15), Rs. 44.11 cr. / Rs.0.68 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 74.37 cr. / Rs. 1.37 cr. (FY17). For FY18 for the two broken periods ended on 15.07.17 it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.77 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 21.62 crore and then net profit of Rs. 0.93 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 21.23 cr. for period ended 31.10.17. Its paid up equity of Rs. 0.02 cr. as on 31.03.17 increased to Rs. 5.89 crore as on 31.10.17. GCIL has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.44 for last nineteen months with a negative RoNW.  Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.14 at the upper price band on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 15.42 as on 31.10.17. If we combine two broken periods and annualize the working and attribute it on fully diluted post issue equity, then asking price is at a P/E of around 12 but then sustainability of bottom line is in question. As per offer documents it is showing APAR Ind as its listed peer that is trading at a P/E of around 20 (as on 20.04.18.). On the working scale basis both are not comparable in true sense.  Based on FY 17 earnings, asking price is at a P/E of 26 plus.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 3rd mandate from its stable and last 2 issues opened at a premium ranging from 6% to 12.78% on the day of listing.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Broken FY18 workings with higher profits are bit surprising as it leads to attractive P/E. Cash surplus risk savvy investors may consider moderate investment for long tern at their own risk.
