K P Energy BSE SME IPO review (Apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on February 9, 2016

K P Energy Limited (KPEL) is a Part of KP Group. The  Company provides complete solutions from concept till completion of project life-cycle of Wind Projects. Activities covered are Siting of Wind-farms, Lands & Permits acquisition, EPCC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction & Commissioning) of Wind Project Infrastructure including power transmission and Operations & Maintenance of entire Balance of Plant of a Utility Scale Wind-farm. Business model of the company is designed to bring scalability in wind sector by serving OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) of Wind Turbines, IPPs (Independent Power Producers, Captive Users as well as Institutional Investment Programmes.
To part finance its 2.10 MW wind power project at Bhavnagar and raise general corpus funds, the company is coming out with a maiden public issue of 920000 equity share of Rs. 10 each via book building route. The offer price band is fixed at Rs. 60-70. Based on the lower and upper price bands, the company hopes to mobilize Rs. 5.52 crore to Rs. 6.44 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 15.02.16 and will close on 17.02.16. Minimum application is to be made for 2000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Aryaman Financial Services Ltd is the lead manager for this issue. Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to this offer. This Issue has been graded by CRISIL Limited as CRISIL SME Fundamental Grade 3, indicating good fundamentals. After raising initial equity at par till 2013, it raised further equity at a price of Rs. 20 per share in March 2015 and also issued bonus in the ratio of 3 for 2 in April 2015. Its current paid up equity of Rs. 2.50 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 3.42 crore post this issue. Post allotment, this shares will be listed on BSE SME.

On performance front the company has posted top/bottom line of Rs. 1.06 cr./Rs. 0.07 cr. (FY2013), Rs. 9.47 cr./Rs. 0.30 cr. (FY 2014) and Rs. 27.03 cr./Rs. 2.94 cr. (FY 2015). For first six months of the current fiscal, it has earned net profit of Rs. 1.25 crore on a turnover of Rs. 12.47 crore. If we attribute these earnings on annualized basis on fully diluted equity post this IPO, then asking price is at a P/E of around 9 against industry average of 11 and thus augurs well. However, future prospects of the company are hinged to performance of proposed wind energy project.

On merchant banker’s front, they have poor track record for their past mandates. This is the eleventh IPO from its stable.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

As this issue is from the renewable energy segment that is heading for bright prospects ahead, risk savvy investors may consider parking of their funds for long term.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.

With entry barriers, SEBI wants only well-informed investors to participate in such offers. With crazy listings in the recent past, SME IPOs drew the attention of investors across the board and lead to seer madness. However, as SME issues have entry barriers and continued low preference from the broking community, any reader taking decisions based on any information published here does so entirely at their own risk.
