Aluminium Conductors are consumed by the power sector for laying of overhead transmission lines. MMPIL has entered into a Joint Venture with Toyo Aluminium K.K. of Japan for the manufacturing of specialty aluminium pastes in a new company ?Toyal MMP India Private Limited. Its  association with Global Industry leader ?Toyo Aluminium K.K., Japan would help in moving up the value chain alongside technological support. Company holds 26% shareholding in this JV Company.

To part finance setting up of new facilities for manufacturing atomized aluminium powder, pyro and flake aluminium powder, aluminium foils, repayment/pre-payment of certain debts, working capital and general corpus fund needs, MMPIL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 4500000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each via book building route with a price band of Rs. 186 – Rs. 188 to mobilize Rs.83.70 cr. – Rs. 84.60 cr.

Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Guiness Corporate Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 26.57% of the post issue paid up capital of the company.  Except for few shares at Rs. 45 per share in June 1995, it has raised all other equity at par and has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 1 for 1 (March 1993), 3 for2 (March 1994), 1 for 1 (March 1996) and 1 for 2 (Sept. 2017). Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 6.12 per share. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 12.44 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 16.94 cr.

On performance front, MMPIL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 121.73 cr./ Rs. 2.51 cr. (FY14), Rs. 157.64 cr. / Rs. 3.71 cr. (FY15), Rs.181.21 cr. / Rs. 7.78 cr.

For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 8.15 and an average RoNW of 28.04%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 4.76 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 39.52 (standalone) as on 30.09.17. However, on a consolidated basis with share of profits from JVs it has posted net profit of Rs. 8.88 cr. (FY16), Rs. 16.56 cr. (FY17) and Rs. 8.06 cr. (first half of FY18) on the same turnover as standalone. If we annualize latest (consolidated) working and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 20 against industry average of 35. It has shown Maan Aluminium and Manaksia as its listed peers and are trading at a P/E of 8 and 26 respectively (as on 19.03.18). Based on these parameters, issue appears reasonably priced.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 27th mandate from its stable in last three fiscals. Out of last 10 listings, 1 opened at discount to offer price, 1 at par and the rest eight with a premium ranging from 2.6% to 25% on the day of listing.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

This is the first mega primary offer by SME so far. Considering progressing performance and bright prospects ahead, investors may invest in this reasonably priced offer for medium to long term.
