H K Trade BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on August 26, 2015

H K Trade International Ltd (HKTIL) is into the business of manufacturing and supplying of adhesive tapes and synthetic paper (teslin papers) from jumbo rolls of adhesive tapes and synthetic paper (teslin) respectively. It operates as an important intermediary in the packing material supply chain, whereby the company purchases materials such as tapes, labels, papers, etc., in the roll form which is further cut and repacked into smaller rolls.

To part finance its long term working capital needs and general corporate expenses, the company is coming out with a maiden  IPO of 1272000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 18 per share (including Rs. 8 premium per share) to mobilize Rs. 2.29 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 31.08.15 and will close on 03.09.15. Minimum application is to be made for 8000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Intensive Fiscal Services Pvt Ltd and Sharex Dynamic (India) Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Shares will be listed on BSE SME after allotments. In December 2013, it issued 200000 shares at a price of Rs. 18 per share. Post IPO its current equity capital of Rs. 1.36 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 2.63 crore.

On performance front, the company has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.74 (on diluted basis). For the FY15 it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.12 crore on a turnover of Rs. 4.23 crore. If we attribute this earnings on post IPO equity then asking price is at a P/E of 39 plus making it a costly bet. As per prospectus of the company, it has no listed peer to compare with. Based on general market parameters, issue is highly priced.

Lead manager has average track records for its past mandates.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Considering the entry barriers and the costly bet, there is no harm giving this issue a miss. However, well informed risks aver investors may park their funds for medium to long term rewards, that may emerge going forward.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
