Gujarat Hy-Spin BSE SME IPO Review (May apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on January 22, 2018

Gujarat Hy-Spin Ltd. (GHSL) that initially started as a trader of cotton bales, cotton seeds and wash oils,  and product jobworks is now engaged in manufacturing of cotton yarn.  GHSL sells its products to traders and industrial units engaged in weavings.

For listing purpose, GHSL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 4450000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at par by way of offer for sale (i.e. totally a secondary issue) to mobilize Rs. 4.45 crore. Being OFS, no money is going to company. Issue opens for subscription on 25.01.18 and will close on 31.01.18. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue constitutes 26.57% of the post issue paid up equity capital of the company. Issue is solely lead managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Its entire equity is issued at par. Being offer for sale, post issue, Company’s paid up equity capital remains same at Rs. 16.75 crore.

On performance front, GHSL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 52.12 cr. / Rs. –0.34 cr. (FY15, Rs. 51.89 cr. / Rs. 0.04 cr. (FY16), Rs. 52.05 cr. / Rs. 0.15 cr. (FY17). Thus while its top line is almost static, its bottom line has shown some improvement, though not very encouraging. For first half of current fiscal, it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.17 crore on a turnover of Rs. 26.39 crore which is a bit surprising. For last three fiscals it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.02 and an average RoNW of 0.12. Issue is priced at a P/BV of around 0.9 plus based on its NAV of Rs. 11.12 as on 30.11.17. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on post issue equity, then asking price is at a P/E of around 50 thus even at par value, it is a costly bet. Peers are trading in the P/E range of 6 to 44.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 57th mandate from its stable in last three fiscals. Out of last 10 listings, 1 opened around par and the rest with premiums ranging from 1% to 130% on the day of listing. 130% rewards are from the only main board IPO of this merchant banker i.e. Astron Paper.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Investment in this at par issue may be considered for long term only.
