To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, KIL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2319000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 37 per share to mobilize Rs. 8.58 cr. Issue comprises of fresh equity issue of 1752000 shares and offer for sale of 567000 shares. Issue opens for subscription on 14.02.19 and will close on 20.02.19. 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 xx% of post issue paid up capital of the company.

Issue is solely lead managed by Fast Track Finsec Pvt. Ltd. while Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Having issued initial equity at par, KIL raised further equity at a price of Rs. 30 per share (based on Rs. 10 FV) in March 2015. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 1 for 1 (30.09.2008), 1 for 1 (11.03.2011) and 1 for 2 (06.09.15).

On financial performance front, for last three fiscals, KIL has (on a consolidated basis) posted turnover/net profit (loss) of Rs. 28.84 cr. / Rs. – (0.21) cr. (FY16), Rs. 29.25 cr. / Rs. – (0.93) cr. (FY17) and Rs. 46.11 cr. / Rs. 0.90 cr. (FY18). For the first half of current FY19, it has earned net profit of Rs. 1.37 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 33.22 cr. For FY16 it suffered a setback due to lower off take of components by tractor sector due to poor monsoon. As the company was having nearly 85% turnover from this segment, it felt the pinch in line with general trends. Having realized the risk of major supply to one segment, it started expanding its product range to cover other automobile and heavy equipment segment for which it made heavy capex.

Due to this, FY17 too it had to suffer as new machinery and product development took time adding interest and depreciation Burdon. With investment and time consuming diverse product profile developments from late FY16 and FY17, it regained its prime status of niche component supplied to varied segments like four wheelers, two and three wheelers, heavy construction equipments etc; from the following fiscal. This is indicative in its performance for FY18 and H1 of FY19.

For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.15 and an average RoNW of 0.63%. Loss for FY16 and FY17 impacted its average earnings and this has happened for the first time in the history of KIL as explained by the management. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 1.81 based on its NAV of Rs. 20.43 as on 30.09.18. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 12 against industry average of 27. As on 30.09.18; the company had orders on hand worth Rs. 30 crore (approx).


As per offer document, it has shown Endurance Techno, MM Forging, Bharat Forge and Rico Auto as its listed peers. Although not strictly comparable, they are currently trading at a P/Es of around 53, 14, 27 and 13 (as on 08.02.19).


This is the first mandate from Fast Track Fintec Pvt. Ltd., hence there is no past track records.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Kranti Industries have a diverse product range. It is catering to major segments in moving equipment/automobile sectors across the board. It also has a few specialized components (for EVs) under development. With all these factors, it is posed for bright prospects ahead. FY18 and H! FY19 is hinting at growth pattern. Investors may consider it for long term rewards.
