In a surprise announcement, we have yet one more BSE SME IPO from Lakhotia Polyester (India) Ltd. (LPIL) Details of the same are as under:

LPIL is the Flagship Company of the group is a new age fashion yarn manufacturer. The Company has grown under the dynamic leadership of Mr. Madhusudan Lakhotia.

The metallic yarn and metallic film manufacturing facility is located at Pimpalgaon Baswant, Nashik, whereas fabric manufacturing facility is located at Malegoan, Nashik.

On the company's performance front, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.05 for last three fiscals and Rs. 0.81 for first half of current fiscal. Company's NAV is at Rs. 12.15 as at 31.03.12 and Rs. 24.99 as at 30.09.12 which will stand enhanced to Rs. 28.87 post issue. Thus the asking price is at a P/E of 35 plus on existing equity that also covers bonus issue in the ratio of 10 for 26 in the year 2011. In August 2012, the company made preferential issue of 1241400 equity share at a price of Rs. 35 per share that raised the NAV as on 30.09.12. Company's turnover of Rs. 10.74 crore for 2010-11 fell to Rs. 7.96 for 2011-12 and for H1 of current fiscal it is Rs. 3.35 crore.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

On merchant banker's mandate performance part, this is the fifth issue and out of earlier four mandates only 1 has failed to give gains on debut. But considering diminishing top line, higher valuation and the entry barrier, one should avoid this issue.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
