Khadim India Ltd. (KIL) is one of the leading footwear brands in India, with a two-pronged focus on retail and distribution of footwear. It is the second largest footwear retailer in India in terms of number of exclusive retail stores operating under the ‘Khadim’s’ brand, with the largest presence in East India and one of the top three players in South India, in fiscal 2016. KIL also had the largest footwear retail franchisee network in India in fiscal 2016. Company is selling its products under flagship brand “Khadim’s” and nine home grown sub-brands.

KIL’s retail business constituted 70.02% 73.48%, 75.23% and 72.19% of net revenue. Company is carrying asset light business with ,

To part finance its pre/repayment plans of term loans and general corpus fund needs, KIL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 6574093 equity shares by offer for sale and fresh equity issue worth Rs. 50 crore. Issue is made via book building route with a price band of Rs. 745-750 per share to mobilize Rs. 539.77 crore to Rs. 543.06 crore (based on lower and upper price bands). In all it is likely to issue approx. 7240760 equity share of Rs. 10 each that constitutes 40% of post issue paid up equity capital. Issue opens for subscription on 02.11.17 and will close on 06.11.17. Minimum application is to be made for 20 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE and NSE. BRLMs to this issue are Axis Capital Ltd., and IDFC Bank Ltd. Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Having issued initial equity at par between 1981 and 2006, it raised further equity in the price range of Rs. 50 to Rs. 150.03 per share. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 30 for 1 in May 2000, 3 for 1 in October 2013. Post issue its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 17.30 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 24.00 crore.

On performance front, KIL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 483.05 cr. / Rs. 12.15 cr. (FY14), Rs. 465.70 cr. /Rs. –(18.66) cr. (FY15), Rs. 538.83 cr. / Rs. 25.24 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 625.55 cr. / Rs. 30.76 cr. (FY17). It suffered a severe setback for FY 15 on account of change in marketing mode with higher discounts. It has reported net profit of Rs. 7.11 crore on a turnover of Rs. 179.76 crore for Q1 of current fiscal. It has posted an average EPS of Rs. 11.96 and average RoNW of 11.35% for last three fiscals. Issue is priced at a P/BV 5.73 on the basis of post issue NAV. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 63.29 against industry average P/E of 59. Thus issue appears fully priced. The average cost of acquisition of Equity Shares of the promoter selling shareholder and Investor selling shareholder in the offer is Rs. 6.55 and Rs. 153.79 respectively. Company has bright prospects ahead as India’s footwear business is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15% by 2020 as population and income growth will continue. With GST implementation, organized footwear segment is expected to grow with faster speed. KIL is addressing around 85% of the total market potential in mid, economy and mass segments.

On BRLM’s front, two merchant bankers associated with the offer have handled 31 public issues in the past three fiscals out of which 8 public issues closed below the issue price on listing date.

Conclusion: Although it appears highly priced offer compared to Bata which is trading around 59 P/E, moderate investment may be considered for medium to long term in this issue as it compares well with Liberty and Relaxo that are trading above 100 P/E. (as on 26.10.17) (Subscribe).
