OFS Technologies Ltd IPO Review (Apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on December 16, 2015

OFS Technologies Ltd (OFST) is perhaps the last IPO for the calendar year 2015 to bid adieu. Details of the same are given hereunder:

OFST is a technology service provider and takes care of the entire cycle of software product development, maintenance, quality assurance testing and support at affordable costs to its clients.

To part finance its plan for JV, strategic acquisitions and other general purpose fund need, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1704000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 25 per share to mobilize Rs. 4.26 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 28.12.15 and will close on 31.12.15. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is solely lead managed by V B Desai Financial Services Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Post IPO its present paid up equity capital of Rs. 4.71 crore (all issued at par) will stand enhanced to Rs. 6.41 crore.

On performance front, the company has posted a weighted average EPS of Rs. 10.53 for last three fiscals on the then paid up equity. For first three months of current fiscal, it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.56 crore on a turnover of Rs. 2.41 crore. If we annualized these and attribute to the fully diluted equity post IPO then the EPS stands at Rs. 3.50 and thus the asking price is at a P/E of 7 plus making it a reasonably priced issue. Peers are trading at a P/E ranging from 35 to 225.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the second mandate and the first one that entered in the fiscal 2013-14 has given average reward.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Considering reasonable pricing of the IPO, investors can plan long term investment, as most of SME IPOs have given some rewards post listings in the process.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.
