Issue opens for subscription on 21.03.18 and will close on 23.03.18. Minimum application is to be made for 1200 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post issue, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by CKP Financial Services Pvt. Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 26.50% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Having initial equity issued at par, it raised further  equity at a price of Rs. 80 per share and has issued bonus shares in the ratio of 49 for 1 (March 2014), 3 for 2 (December 2016), 1 for 5 (August 2017) and 3.5 for 1 (February 2018). Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 0.70 per share. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 7.54 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 8.69 cr.

On performance front, KFML has posted revenue/net profit of Rs. 41.52 cr. / Rs. 1.45 cr. (FY14), Rs. 58.91 cr. / Rs. 1.99 cr. (FY15), Rs. 74.99 cr. / Rs. 2.16 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 93.88 cr. / Rs. 3.06 cr. (FY17). For first nine months of the current fiscal, it has earned net profit of Rs. 4.38 cr. on revenue of Rs. 84.88 cr. Thus it has shown consistent growth in top and bottom lines.  For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 3.58 and an average RoNW of 31.53%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 4.68 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 19.64 as on 31.12.17 and at a P/BV of 3.15 on the basis of post issue NAV of Rs. 29.22. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 14 against industry average of 96. It has shown listed peers Quess Corp and SIS that are currently trading at a P/E of around 59 and 197 respectively (as on 16.03.18). Thus it is priced very attractively.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the first mandate from its stable and has no track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Issue is attractively priced and has good performance track record. Investment may be considered for short to long term.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.
