Goldstar Power NSE SME IPO review (May apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 21, 2017

Goldstar Power Ltd. (GPL) is a storage battery manufacturing company selling its products under 'Star Gold' brand. Company procures battery scrap and discarded batteries from dealers/retailers and converts into finished product. Having started as battery plates manufacturing company, gradually it has moved to forward and backward integration to emerge as full-fledged battery manufacturer. Company's product range covers various types of batteries including automotive batteries, tubular batteries, SMF series batteries, VRLA batteries, Solar batteries, Pure Lead and Alloy batteries.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, GPL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2898000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 25 per share to mobilize Rs. 7.25 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 27.09.17 and will close on 29.09.17. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. The issue will constitute 27.09% of the fully diluted post issue paid up equity share capital of the company. Having issued initial equity at par from incorporation till December 2005, it raised further equity at a price of Rs. 60 per share during March 2007 and January 2012 and has issued bonus shares in the ratio of 5 for 1 in August 2017. Post issue, company's current paid up equity capital of Rs. 7.80 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 10.70 crore.

On performance front, GPL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 49.24 cr. / Rs. 0.30 cr. (FY14), Rs. 41.30 cr. / Rs. – (0.66) cr. (FY15), Rs.40.51 cr. / Rs. – (0.39) cr. (FY16) and Rs. 54.97 cr. / Rs. 0.91 cr. (FY17). For FY 15 and 16 it suffered a setback and incurred losses. FY 17 performance is a bit surprising with big jump in top and bottom lines. Last three fiscals average EPS is Rs. 0.28 and average RoNW is 1.74%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 1.69. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 29 plus making it a fully priced issue. It is playing in highly competitive segment and past performance is not that encouraging.

On merchant banker's front, this is the 50th mandate from Pantomath in last three years. Out of last 10 recent listings, 1 opened at discount, 1 at par and the rest with 1 to 18% premium on IPO price.

Conclusion: Risk savvy cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.
