Jupiter Infomedia Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on Aug 16, 2012

Primary market is again on cross roads as secondary market has turned listless despite ongoing Q1 number season.  As we know, RINL PSU IPO set for July End entry is postponed by another two months and SAIL FPO might be deferred for future date.  Private sector prefers to wait and watch for their book building process offers for regular listings, but we are witnessing a spat of SME IPOS that are taking a lead in such scenario. Of course they are for a petty amount of Rs. 4 to 6 crore fund mobilization and have no road shows or any public announcements. 

This week we have BSE SME platform IPO from Jupiter Infomedia Ltd. (JIL), a web infomedia company from Modi group engaged in online publications on Business, Encyclopedia and Yellowpages. JIL develops various informative online publications / verticals in house. The company aims to develop an online information library that would provide in-depth information to its visitors on various topics. Currently it has three online publications where a substantial progress has been done. These are under the brand names of JimTrade.com. IndiaNetzone.com and jimyellowpages.com.

JIL mulls purchase and set-up of offices in Mumbai and Kolkata, renting offices in Ahmedabad, Chennai and Delhi. To part finance these programme along with raising other general corpus fund, it is offering 2040000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a premium of Rs. 10 per share (i.e. at a price of Rs. 20 per share). Issue opens on 30.07.2012 and will close on 01.08.2012. Aryaman Financial Services Ltd is the lead manager to this IPO and Karvy Computershare Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the offer. Shares will be listed on BSE SME platform.  Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereof.

On the performance front, JIL has posted average top line with declining trends in bottom line with EPS going down from Rs. 2.64 (for FY 2010) to Rs. 0.51 (for FY 2012). During the year 2006 it issued shares at a price of Rs. 50 per share and thereafter a bonus in the ratio of 12 for 1 on March 20th 2012 and also preferential issue of 1060000 shares at a price of Rs. 15 per share to promoters n 31.03.12. Its NAV as on 31.03.12 is at Rs. 13.74. Thus asking price is on the higher side. As far as Lead Manager is concerned, it has a poor track record. Yes, being a small issue worth Rs. 4.08 crore, market operation post listing is not ruled out.


Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Risks aver HNIs only can park moderate fund for listing gains, if any.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
