To part finance its working capital requirements, general corpus fund needs etc. the company is coming out with a maiden public issue of 2730000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 50 per share to mobilize Rs. 13.65 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 15.02.16 and will close on 19.02.16. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Sarthi Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd and Sharepro Services (India) Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Since incorporation till 1987 it issued equity shares at par. Between February 2014 - March 2015 it issued equity at a price of Rs. 100-110. It issued three bonus issues so far in the ratio of 1 for 1 (March 1999), 5 for 1 (October 2013) and 1 for 1 (September 2015). Post issue, its present paid up equity capital of Rs. 7.57 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 10.30 crore.

On performance front, the company has posted growth in its top / bottom lines from Rs. 370.49 cr. /2.07 cr. (FY 2013), Rs. 385.44 cr. /Rs. 2.59 cr. (FY 2014) and Rs. 459.45 cr. /Rs. 4.98 cr. (FY 2015). For the six months ended 30.09.15 it has posted net profit of Rs. 2.26 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 196.85 cr. If we annualize these earnings and attribute to fully diluted equity post IPO then asking price is at a P/E of 11 that augurs well against industry average of 100 plus.

On merchant banker's front, it has mixed rewards on its past listed mandates. This is the 14th IPO from its stable.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Investors may consider investment in this justifiably priced IPO in a lucrative segment . 

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.
