Milton Industries Ltd. (MIL) is engaged in manufacturing of Laminates, Artificial Leather cloth and Glass Fibre Reinforced Epoxy (GFRE) Sheets in the state of Gujarat. The company is the manufacturer and exporter of premium quality high-pressure laminates, industrial Laminates, laminated board, flooring laminates, artificial Leather cloth, GFRE Sheets and other allied products. Its superior quality laminates can be used on walls, doors, windows, cupboards, tabletops, hotels, cash counters, home kitchen, etc. Initially Company was engaged in manufacturing of laminates and further diversified in manufacturing and exports of Artificial Leather cloth and GFRE Sheets.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, MIL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 4200000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 34 per share to mobilize Rs. 14.28 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 29.09.17 and will close on 06.10.17. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is solely lead managed by Swastika Investmart Ltd. and Skyline Financial Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. . Issue constitutes 27.18% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. It has issued equity at par and has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 1 for 10 in October 1994, 1 for 1 in January 1995, 1 for 2 in August 1995, 1 for 5 in October 2000, 1 for 3 in December 2002 and 5 for 4 in July 2017. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 11.25 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 15.45 cr.

On performance front, MIL has reported turnover/net profits of Rs. 45.46 cr. / Rs. 0.74 cr. (FY14), Rs. 42.28 cr. / Rs. 0.63 cr. (FY15), Rs. 42.03 cr. / Rs. 0.22 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 43.63 cr. / Rs. 1.15 cr. (FY17). Thus while its top line has remained almost constant, its bottom line has seen roller-coaster ride. It has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.67 and average RoNW of 5.81% for last three fiscals on an equity base of Rs. 5 crore. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.86. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of 45 plus against industry average of 38 making it aggressively priced offer. Cost of acquisition of shares by promoters ranges from Rs. 4 to Rs. 12.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 7th mandate from its stable and last five listings have given between 4 to 25% gains on the day of listing.

Conclusion: Considering aggressive pricing, risk savy cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy
