Maheshwari Logistics NSE SME IPO review (Apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on December 29, 2016

Maheshwari Logistics Ltd (MLL) is engaged in providing logistics services, supplying of non-coking coal, manufacturing of kraft paper and trading in variety of papers. Thus the company has diverse business model that covers three sectors i.e. logistics, fuel and papers.

To part finance its working capital requirements and general corpus fund needs, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3996000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 68 per share to mobilize Rs. 27.17 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 30.12.16 and will close on 06.01.2017. Minimum application is to be made for 2000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. After initial issue at par, it issued further capital at a price ranging from Rs. 110 to Rs. 1968 and has also issued bonus in the ratio of 4 for 1 in March 2012 and 1 for 1 in December 2016. Post issue its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 10.80 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 14.80 crore.

On performance front, it has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 414.89 cr. / Rs. 5.17 cr. (FY14), Rs. 534.93 cr. / Rs. 5.84 cr. (FY15) and Rs.605.47 cr. / Rs. 6.92 cr. (FY16). For first half of the current fiscal it has posted net profit of Rs. 4.71 crore on a turnover of Rs. 334.81 cr. If we annualize these earnings and attribute on fully diluted equity post IPO, then asking price is at a P/E of 10 plus and a P/BV of around 1.2 that appears to be reasonable. The company has no listed peer to compare with.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 33rd mandate from its stable and earlier mandates have shown mixed trends post listings.

Conclusion: Considering the future prospects of logistics, fuel and paper sectors, this issue may be considered for investment on medium to long term.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy
