O P Chains Ltd. (OPCL) is a north centric Bullion dealer of Gold and Silver and other precious metals specializing in bars and coins of various precious metals like Gold and Silver. It offers wholesale delivery of bullion to domestic users i.e. ornament manufacturers, goldsmiths, jewellers and semi-wholesalers. OPCL operates as an important intermediary in bullion trading industry whereby it purchase materials such as Gold, Silver and other precious metals etc. from State Trading Corporation of India, Hindustan Zinc Limited, ICICI Bank Limited, Punjab National Bank Limited and SB Ornaments Pvt. Ltd., and supply to customers in the Jewelry industry to various jewelers and related business.

To meet its working capital requirements, the company is coming out with an IPO of 1850000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 11 per share to mobilize Rs. 2.04 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 30.03.15 and will close on 08.04.15. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotments, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue is lead managed by Hem Securities Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd. Between December 2011 to December 2003 it issued 2344900 shares at a fixed price of Rs. 60 per share to promoters to take its paid up capital to Rs. 5 crore. Post issue it’s paid up equity will rise to Rs. 6.85 crore from Rs. 5.00 crore.

On performance front, the company for the fiscals 2012, 2013 and 14 it clocked in turnover and (loss)/net profits of Rs. 592.41/Rs. 0.62 crore, Rs. 239.58 crore/(Rs. 0.18 crore) and Rs. 259.18 crore/Rs. 0.11 crore respectively. For the first half ended on 30.09.14 it has earned net profit of Rs.0.10 crore on a turnover of Rs. 155.78 crore. If we annualized these earnings and evaluate on fully diluted equity post IPO then the EPS stands at Rs. 0.29 and thus the asking price at Rs. 11 per share is at a P/E of 37 plus making it aggressively priced.


Conclusion / Investment Strategy

With drastic fall in the prices of Gold and Silver in past two years, the business is affected. Hence there is no harm giving this issue a miss.

This is the 13th IPO from this Merchant Banker and he has mixed performance for IPOs post listings.

With entry barriers, SEBI wants only well-informed investors to participate in such offers. With crazy listings in the past, SME IPOs drew the attention of investors across the board. However, as SME issues have entry barriers and continued low preference from the broking community, any reader taking decisions based on any information published here does so entirely at own risk. The above information is based on information available as on date coupled with market perceptions. The Author has no plans to invest in this offer.
