Mewar Hi-Tech BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 29, 2016

Mewar Hi-Tech Engineering Ltd (MHEL) is engaged in manufacturing of heavy manufacturing machines and industrial material handling equipments including pre-engineering building sheds, cranes, sand machines, concrete mixture machines, batch mixing plants, RMC (ready-mix concrete) plants, industrial products for crushing plants, Double Toggle Grease/Oil Crusher, Single Toggle Grease Jaw Crusher, Vibrating Screen, Horizontal Shaft Impactor, Vertical Shaft Impactor and Cone Crusher and other crushing, screening and customized size reduction equipments. The Company also provides after sales service and warranty facilities for such machines.

To part finance working capital needs and general corpus fund requirements, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1062000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at fixed price of Rs. 22 per share to mobilize Rs. 2.34 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 30.09.16 and will close on 06.10.16. 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 managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd. Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. It issued equity at par on incorporation and then all further equity is raised at a fixed price of Rs. 50 per share during 2008 to 2016. In March 2016 it issued bonus in the ratio of 3 for 1 in March 2016. Post issue its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 2.84 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 3.90 crore.

On performance front, for last four fiscals, the company has reported turnover/net profits of Rs. 33.88 cr./ Rs. 0.64 cr. (FY13), Rs. 23.96 cr. / Rs. 0.32 cr. (FY14), Rs. 40.384 cr. / Rs. 0.19 cr. (FY15) and Rs. 25.35 cr. / Rs. (-0.02 cr.) (FY16). Thus it has shown inconsistency in its performance. However, if we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post IPO then asking price is at a negative P/E and at a P/BV of 1.2 plus. If we attribute FY15 earnings then the asking price is at a P/E of around 44 plus that makes it a costly bet. Although asking price is below peers, its inconsistent performance in the major concern.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 31st mandate and its past mandates have shown mixed trends.

Conclusion: Inconsistency in performance raises concern. Also being a costly bet, investors may give it a miss.


Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Inconsistency in performance raises concern. Also being a costly bet, investors may give it a miss.  

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
