The Company is a registered as a Class-I Composite Category with Central Public Works Department (CPWD and also been awarded contractor license from Gujarat Energy Transmission Corporation limited (GETCO) as Class – C Contractor and is a registered EPC Contractor with Indian Farmers Fertilizer Cooperative Limited (IFFCO).

To meet its working capital requirement, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 538800 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 100 per share. The issue opens for subscription on 10.03.16 and will close on 18.03.16. Minimum application is to be made for 1200 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is solely managed by Sarthi Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd and Cameo Corporate Services Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge platform. Having issued equity at par on inception, it issued shares at a price of Rs. 40 to Rs. 300 during 2007 -2010. In 2011 and 2014 it issued equity at par. In March 2014 it also issued bonus in the ratio of 1 share for every 1 share held. Post issue its current equity capital of Rs. 1.49 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 2.03 crore.

On performance front, for last three fiscals it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 12.01. Although its top line remained almost static for the fiscals 2013 and 2014, it marked more than double top line for 2015 and has thus surprised. Its bottom line remained in consistent with net profits of Rs.1.07 crore (FY 2013), Rs. 1.02 crore (FY 2014) and Rs. 2.41 crore (2015). For first half of the current fiscal it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.64 crore on a turnover of Rs. 56.85 crore.  If we annualize these earnings and attribute on fully diluted equity post IPO then the EPS works out to Rs. 6.30 and thus asking price is at a P/E of 15 plus against peers shown in prospectus having a P/E of 19 plus.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 15th IPO from its stable and earlier mandates have shown mixed trends post listing.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Cash surplus investors may consider investment in this IPO in a for  long term, as the sector has bright prospects going ahead.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.
