Kenvi Jewels BSE SME IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on January 29, 2018

Kenvi Jewels Ltd. (KJL) originally incorporated as Suvarnkrupa Ornaments Pvt. Ltd. rechristened to current name in August 2017. It is primarily into the business of manufacturing and retailing of jewellery. Besides this, KJL is also into wholesaling and trading of gold jewellery. The designing of its jewellery is done in house which is manufactured at its unit situated at Manek Chowk. Further, the company also gets jewellery designed by third party designers as and when required. It sells gold jewellery made with or without studded diamonds, precious and semi-precious stones. KJL’s product portfolio includes Wedding Jewellery, Festive Jewellery, Rings, Chain, Earrings, Ear Chain, Nose-rings/Nose pins, Waist belts, Mangalsutra, Anklet, Zuda, Toe Ring, Pendant Set/ Pendant, Bracelet and Bangles.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, KJL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1860000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 36 per share to mobilize Rs. 6.70 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 02.02.18 and will close on 07.02.18. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue constitutes 39.55% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Issue is solely lead managed by First Overseas Capital Ltd. and Karvy Computershare Pvt.Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Average cost of acquisitions of shares by the promoters is Rs. 12.71 and Rs. 19.44 per share. Having issued initial equity at par, it raised further equity in the price range of Rs. 20 and Rs. 50 between March 2014 and November 2017. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 3 for 2 on 18.11.17. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 2.84 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 4.70 crore.

On performance front, KJL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs.2.90 cr. / Rs. 0.001 cr. (FY15), Rs.7.05 cr. / Rs. 0.001 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 7.18 cr. / Rs. 0.02 cr. (FY17). For first eight months ended on 30.11.17 it has reported net profit of Rs. 0.54 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 7.47 cr. which is very surprising. For last three fiscals it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.25 and an average RoNW of 5.56% on an equity base of Rs. 0.12 crore. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 1.17 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 30.87 as on 30.11.17 and at a P/BV of 1.35 on the basis of post issue NAV of Rs. 26.68. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it to fully diluted post issue equity then asking price is at a P/E of around 21 against nearest peer Swarnsarita trading at a P/E of around 11 and mega brands like PC Jewellers and Titan trading at a P/E of 32 and 70 respectively. However, this offer appears priced aggressively with has poor track record till last fiscal. Sudden jump in top and bottom lines appears as window dressing before IPO.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 17th mandate from its stable and out of last 10 listings, 5 opened at discount, 1 at par and the rest with a premium ranging from 1 to 13% on the day of listings.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Company’s track record is not supporting to asking price, Its equity is having quantum jump and aggressive pricing makes this offer a costly bet. No harm in giving it a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
