Pecos Hotels and Pubs Ltd BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on July 17, 2015

Pecos Hotels and Pubs Ltd (PHPL) is into the business of running of hotels and pubs in Bangalore, with 4 Pubs providing 70s, 80s and 90s retro rock music since last 10 years. Its focus is to bring alive the greatest of legends in the interiors, the lighting, the paintings, pictures, posters and the sounds. The theme of the pub cater to the 20-35 age group, who are in reasonably well paying jobs, unmarried with a decent disposable income and looking for fellowship in the evening.

To part finance its new Pub development plans, up gradation of existing facilities and raise general corpus fund, the company is coming out with an IPO of 459000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 50 per share to mobilize Rs. 2.30 crore. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue opens for subscription on 23.07.15 and will close on 28.07.15. After issuing incorporation equity at par, it made preferential allotment at a price of Rs. 800 per share in March 2014 and at a price of Rs. 12 per share in January 2015. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 2 for 1 in November 2013 and 20 for 1 in January 2015. Post issue its existing equity capital of Rs. 0.85 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 1.31 crore. Issue is lead managed by Sarthi Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd and Link Intime India Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME.

On performance front, for the fiscal 2013 and 2014 the company has posted turnover and net profits of Rs. 2.65 crore/0.07 crore and Rs. 2.92 crore/Rs. 0.01 crore respectively. For 10 months ended 31.01.15 it has reported net profit of Rs. 0.10 crore on a turnover of 2.49 crore. If we annualize this earnings and attribute to the asking price then the issue is at a P/E of 54 plus. Thus issue is exorbitantly priced.

As far as lead manager's track record is concerned, this is the 10th IPO from its stable and earlier mandates have mixed trends for rewards post listings.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Avoid. With P/E of 54 plus Pecos Hotels is a highly priced IPO. Pecos Hotels is into the business of running of hotels and pubs in Bangalore.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
