Maximus International BSE SME IPO review (May apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on March 10, 2017

Maximus International Ltd (MIL) is primarily engaged in the business of importing and exporting lubricant oils, different types of base oils and other chemical products used mainly in the Automobile Industry, Power Industry and Metal manufacturing among others. The Company acts as a Merchant Exporter and Sourcing Company with a niche focus on lubricants and base oils. It has also started trading in plastic additives used for masterbatches, and certain agro related products. MIL has presence in the markets of Middle East & certain African Countries and understands needs of these Markets. It aims to expand its product portfolio in these regions and acts as a sourcing company for various industrial and agricultural based companies.

To part finance its long term working capital needs and general corpus funds, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1506000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 25 per share to mobilize Rs. 3.77 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 17.03.17 and will close on 22.03.17. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue is solely lead managed by Aryaman Financial Services Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Till September 2016 it issues all equity at par and in October 2016, it issued further equity at a price of Rs. 25 per share. Its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 3.70 crore will stand enhanced to Rs.5.21 crore post issue.

On performance front, as the company has started its activities in late FY 15-16, it has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 0.49 cr. / Rs. 0.01 cr. (FY16). For first seven months of the current fiscal it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.22 crore on a turnover of Rs. 5.33 crore. If we annualize these earnings and attribute on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 34 plus making it aggressively priced issue. Peers are trading at around 13 to 20 P/Es.

On merchant banker's front, in last three years till date this is the 13th mandate and earlier mandates have shown mixed trends.

Conclusion: Considering track record and the aggressive pricing, only cash surplus risk savvy investors may consider investment for long term.
