Pennar Engineered Building Systems IPO Review (May apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on August 20, 2015

Pennar Engineered Building Systems Ltd (PEBs) is one of the leading custom designed building systems solutions providers in India. The company has capabilities of designing, manufacturing, supply and assembly of custom designed building systems that include pre-engineered buildings, design and engineering services, solar module mounting structures, cold form buildings and structural steel products which are widely used for various manufacturing, warehousing, industrial, infrastructure and custom designed commercial buildings. PEBS also provides design and engineering services for projects being executed by others.  Since the commencement of our business activities in January 2010 and as of June 30, 2015, it has completed design, manufacturing, supply and assembly of 83,967 MT covering sqm area of 18,58,552 pre-engineered buildings in various sectors including warehousing, retail and manufacturing; design, supply and erection of solar module mounting structures for generation of solar power; design, manufacturing, supply and erection of structural steel buildings and cold form buildings. Its core product, i.e. pre-engineered buildings, are steel buildings which are custom designed and fabricated to every customer‘s requirements in accordance with the applicable standards. The company has a non-exclusive technical know-how licensing arrangement with NCI Group, Inc., an established player in the United States‘metals buildings market, for supply of standing seam roofing panel system in India under the brand name “Double Lok” and has also entered into a design services out-sourcing agreement with a U.S. based entity engaged in a similar business.

To part finance its procurement of infrastructure for expansion, repayment of part debt and other general corpus funding requirements, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO in the form of Offer for Sale and fresh equity via book building route.  5516141 equity shares are as Offer for Sale and the rest will be fresh equity issue. Total issue size at the upper price band is Rs. 156.20 crore (including the fresh equity issue that will fetch around Rs. 58 crore). Issue opens for subscription on 25.08.15 and will close on 27.08.15. The company has fixed a price band of Rs. 170-178 per share. Minimum application is to be made for 80 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. BRLMs to the issue are Motilal Oswal Investment Advisors Pvt. Ltd, Axis Capital Ltd and Karvy Investor Services Ltd. Karvy Computershare Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Having issued equity at par from the signing of MoA till March 2010, the company has converted CCPS into equity at a price of Rs. 58.17 during March 15 and July 15 that took its current equity capital to Rs. 31.02 crore that will rise to Rs. 34.28 crore post IPO.  Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE/NSE.

Company's top five customers for last two fiscals were Reliance Jio Infocom, Frontier Sales Corp, Nuevosol Energy, Larsen & Toubro and Ultratech Cement that contributed around 55% in top lines. It has order on hand worth Rs. 360 crore and the project delivery period is ranging between 2 to 4 months. Thus improvement in delivery schedule may bring more revenues and profits for the company. Its future order hinges on developments in industrialization and infrastructure spending.

On performance front, the company has posted an average EPS of Rs. 6.38 (on fully diluted basis) for last three fiscals. Its turnover and net profits were Rs. 290.96 cr. /Rs. 14.76 cr (FY 13), Rs. 369.75 cr. / Rs. 17.22 cr. (FY14) and Rs. 452.36 cr. /Rs. 21.98 cr. respectively. If we attribute latest working on fully diluted equity post IPO then asking price is at a P/E of 27 plus that makes it a costly bet. As there are no listed peers to compare, the company has provided unlisted peer details that are not relevant as far as investor's point of view is concern.

BRLMs have mixed trends for its past mandates.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Being first mover in the segment, issue is aggressively priced. Pennar group is not having any fancy among investors. Hence only risk aver investors may park moderate fund for medium to long term as this IPO being below Rs. 250 crore, will attract "T" tag in initial listing period and will keep short term players away from it.
