Nouritrans Exim BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on August 31, 2017

Nouritrans Exim Ltd. (NEL) is in the business of exports, imports and trading of commodity since 1995. Its global presence covers various markets in USA, UK, Europe, South Africa and Middle East. The company has been accredited as an International Commodity Export-Import & Trading Company and having APEDA certificate. Its product portfolio covers various Agro based products and Scraps. Over the decades, NEL has emerged as a leading Import-Export & Trading Company with wide portfolio of International and Domestic customers.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, NEL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2040000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 30.00 per share to mobilize Rs. 6.12 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 04.09.17 and will close on 07.09.17. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples, thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue is solely lead managed by First Overseas Capital Ltd and Karvy Computershare Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. After initial equity issues at par, it raised further equity at a price of Rs. 30 per share between 31.03.17 and 07.06.17. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 3 shares for every 2 shares held on 03.06.17. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 4.06 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 6.10 crore. Issue constitutes 33.46 % of the post issue fully diluted paid up capital of the company.

On performance front, for last four fiscals NEL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 1.19 cr. / Rs. 0.005cr. (FY14), Rs. 4.18 cr. / Rs. 0.05 cr. (FY15), Rs. 6.35 cr. / Rs. 0.06 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 11.60 cr. / Rs. 0.30 cr. (FY17). Thus it has posted rising trends in top and bottom lines. FY 17 net profit includes other income of Rs. 0.12 cr. For last three fiscals it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.64 and average RoNW of 25.33% on the paid up equity capital of Rs. 1.51 crore which is at Rs. 4.06 crore now. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.64. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 61 plus. Thus pricing of the issue is very aggressive. As per prospectus details, NEL has no listed peers to compare with.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 16th mandate from its stable. Out of last 10 listings, 5 opened at discount, 1 at par and 4 with 1 to 40% premiums.

Conclusion: Considering aggressive pricing there is no harm in giving this issue a miss.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Considering aggressive pricing there is no harm in giving this issue a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
