Parshva Enterprises BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on June 15, 2019

•    PEL is trading in cut and polished diamonds and gold jewellery.
•    This sector is highly competitive and currently not fancied by investors.
•    The issue is priced very aggressively at around 45 P/E.
•    Merchant Banker has an average track record.

Parshva Enterprises Ltd. (PEL) is engaged in the wholesale and trading business of cut and polished diamonds and gold jewellery. The company buys and sells diamonds of different categories depending on fancy colour, size, shape and cut. Among cuts Princess-cut, Round-cut and Heart-cut are some known patterns.  Diamonds prices are based on size and cut evaluations. PEL majorly deals in natural diamonds and sells it in domestic markets only. However, PEL primarily sells gold jewellery such as Chains, Bangles, Necklace, Pendant, Bracelet, Earrings etc. It is also investing in real estate properties in Gujarat and Maharashtra with a focus on the middle and higher end of markets for trading gains.

To part finance its working capital (Rs. 3.45 cr.) needs, PEL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 810000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 45 per share to mobilize Rs. 3.65 crore. The issue opens for subscription on 19.06.19 and will close on 21.06.19. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue constitutes 26.91% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. PEL is spending Rs. 0.20 cr. for this issue.

The issue is solely lead managed by Inventure Merchant Banker Services Pvt. Ltd. while Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue.  Sernet Financial Services Pvt. Ltd. is acting as the market maker for this issue. Having raised initial equity at par, it raised further equity at a price of Rs. 45 per share in March 2019. The average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 9.92 per share.

Post issue, PEL's current paid up equity capital of Rs. 2.20 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 3.01 cr.

On the financial performance front, PEL has just 21 months working data. For FY18 from 27.07.17 to 31.03.18, it posted a turnover of Rs.4.77 Cr. with a net profit of Rs.0.04 Cr. and for full FY19 it has earned a net profit of Rs. 0.30 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 7.13 cr.

For the last 21 months, as per average calculations, PEL has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.09 and an average RoNW of 6.46%. The issue is priced at a  P/BV of 3.09 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 14.55 as on 31.03.19 and at a P/BV of 1.98 on the basis of post issue NAV of Rs. 22.55. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 45 against the industry average of 43

As per offer documents, it has shown Narbada Gems, Lypsa Gems, Goldiam Intl and Swarnasarita Gems as its listed peers that are currently trading at a P/Es of around  39, 74, 15 and 5 (as on 14.06.19). However, they are strictly not comparable on an apple to apple basis.

On merchant banker's front, this is the 7th mandate from its stable in last three fiscals. Out of last 6 listings, 1 opened at par, 1 at discount and the rest with premiums ranging from 0.15% to 20% on the day of listings.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

PEL has just 21 months working records. The issue is priced very aggressively. Merchant Banker has an average track record. PEL operates in a highly competitive segment. Its current issue size may take a longer time for migration to the main board. Considering all these aspects, investors may skip this issue.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
