Review By Dilip Davda on September 18, 2018

•    KPL manufacturing office stationery and other plastic products.
•    Financial performance is not encouraging.
•    Sudden jump in top and bottom line for FY18 surprising.
•    Issue is priced very aggressively.

Kshitij Polyline Ltd. (KPL) incorporated with an aim of running manufacturing, marketing, sourcing of Plastic Sheet, lamination sheet, folders, I card and files having wide application in printing and stationery. Company & its executives have developed the skill and expertise in designing and innovation in office stationery, calendar, dairy and student study materials of different variety colours, design and application. It has also developed the In house technical & Design team to provide stationery solution and implementation for calendar, diary, books as replacement of traditional material with new and innovative PP material. KPL has an aim  to develop its Brand for quality products for Office stationery, Publicity material, ID card & smart card, File & folders & wiro books and developed the technique to make all products as ? Make in India? and provide competition to China and other Markets.

The company has regular business from existing clients such as Navneet Publication, Anupam Stationery, Events and Media Organisers of conference and Exhibition. KPL has established own distribution and marketing network in Pan India Basis. With its own network, company has developed the reputation and goodwill for timely supply of material to their reputed clients. It has plan to develop logistic & warehousing facility in Delhi, Jaipur, Culcutta, Hydrabad, Banglore, Chennai and Pune. This shall also support for E commerce and Online marketing of company‘s products.

To part finance its plans to purchase machinery and equipments to manufacture Laminated sheets, Wiro and PP Sheet suitable for stationery and office products, working capital and general corpus fund needs, KPL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2500000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 35 per share to mobilize Rs. 8.75 cr. Issue opens for subscription on 21.09.18 and will close on 27.09.18. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue constitutes 28.79% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Issue is solely lead managed by Monarch Networth Capital Ltd. and Karvy Computershare Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Having issued initial equity at par, it raised/converted further equity in the price range of Rs. 15 and Rs. 20 between November 2016 and March 2018. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 1 for 6 in May 2018. Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 10.70, Rs. 11.28 and Rs. 12.11 per share. Post issue KPL’s current paid up equity capital of Rs. 6.18 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 8.68 cr.

On performance front, for last four fiscals, KPL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 12.39 cr. / Rs. 0.16 cr. (FY15), Rs. 15.57 cr. / Rs. 0.20 cr. (FY16), Rs. 17.01 cr. / Rs. 0.28 cr. (FY17) and Rs. 27.43 cr. / Rs. 1.06 cr. (FY18). Sudden jump in top and bottom line for FY18 is a bit surprising. For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 2.13 and an average RoNW of 10.02%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.15 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 16.26 as on 31.03.18. If we consider FY18 earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 29 making it aggressively priced issue.
As per offer documents, it has shown Ecoplast, Duropack, Xpro India, Cosmo Films as its listed peers that are currently trading at a P/Es of around 14, 10, 00 and 6 (as on 18.09.18). All these are strictly not comparable with KPL.

On merchant banker’s front, this is 12th mandate from its stable in last five fiscals. Out of last 10 listings 2 opened at discount, 3 at par and the rest with a premium ranging from 1.43% to 45%.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Company’s track record is average. Issue is aggressively priced. It has stiff competition from unorganized sector. Cash surplus risk savvy investors may consider investment at their own risk.
