Navigant Corporate Advisor BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on November 24, 2015

Navigant Corporate Advisors Ltd (NCAL) was primarily promoted as real estate company under the name of S P Realtor Estates Ltd, that later ventured into corporate advisory, merchant banking allied activities etc.  It rechristened itself to present name. It currently offers services in Capital Market, Corporate Finance, Investment Advisory, Investment activities, short term financing etc.

To avail listing benefits, the company is coming out with an offer for sale of 850000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 14 per share to mobilize Rs. 1.19 crore. As this is offer for sale, the post issue capital will remain same and company will not get any funds. Issue opens for subscription on 30.11.15 and will close on 07.12.15. Issue is lead managed by First Overseas Capital Ltd and Karvy Computershare is the registrar to the issue. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment shares will be listed on BSE SME. After initial issue of equity at Par for MoA process, it issued further equity at a price of Rs. 40 and Rs. 50 per share in March and October 2014. It then issued bonus shares in the ratio of 5 for 2 in June 2015 and then issued further equity at a price of Rs. 16 per share in the same month to bring its current paid up equity of Rs. 3.15 crore.   

On performance front, the company has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.93 and for first two months it has reported an EPS of Rs. 1.12. For the Fiscal 2014 it earned net profit of Rs. 0.02 crore on a total income of Rs. 0.13 crore. For Fiscal 2015 it registered net profit of Rs. 0.20 crore on a total income of Rs. 0.84 crore. For first two months of the current fiscal (ended 30.06.15) it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.08 crore on a turnover of Rs. 0.24 crore. Fiscal 2014 and 2015 earnings are on a paid up equity of Rs. 0.19 crore. If we annualized and attribute current earnings, then the EPS will come to around Rs. 0.15 and thus asking price is at a P/E of 90 plus. Although cost of acquisition of equity by promoters is Rs. 15.40 and it being offered at a price lower than that, this issue is priced very aggressively.

Merchant banker have poor track record for its past mandates.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Issue is priced very aggressively, risk savvy investors may plan long term investment considering SME IPOs having given some rewards post listings in the process.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
