Kavita Fabrics Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on February 15, 2013

Surat (Gujarat) based Kavita Fabrics Ltd (KFL) is engaged in manufacturing synthetic fabrics from man-made yarns by using weaving technology. Currently, our Company owns 36 jacquard power looms to undertake the weaving of the synthetic fabrics from man-made yarns. It manufactures synthetic fabrics in the form of semi-finished sarees and dress materials. To meet its long term working capital requirement, KFL is coming out with an issue of 1275000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a price of Rs. 40 per share. Issue opens for subscription on 20.02.13 and will close on 22.02.13. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Post issue, shares will be listed on BSE-SME. Issue is lead managed by Intensive Fiscal Services Pvt. Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue.

As far as company's performance is concerned, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.79 for last three fiscals and for the first five months ended 31.08.12, it has posted EPS of Rs. 0.90 with a net profit of Rs. 0.10 crore on a turnover of Rs. 2.14 crore. Translating this earnings on post issue equity of Rs. 3.47 crore, the EPS stands at Rs. 0.70 that marks P/E of 57 plus for the asking price of Rs. 40 per share and thus it is an expensive offer.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

As for lead manager's track record, it managed 3 IPOs out of which, 1 failed to give listing gains on debut day. However, considering the aggressive pricing of the IPO, better give it a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
