PG Electroplast Limited IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 5, 2011

PG Electroplast Ltd. is a flagship company of the Gupta group from north and is engaged in a variety of consumer durable products and related accessories along with its assemblies.

The company that started with black and while TV component manufacturing ventured into TV set assemblies on contract basis and paved the way for making of CTVs and other products like CFL, DVDs, Water Purifiers, AC and PCB assemblies/sub-assemblies.

Currently it has four units at UP, Uttarakhand and Maharashtra region and enjoys the status of Electronic Manufacturing Service provider to majors OEMs in India. The company is now planning to expand its 3rd and 4th unit along with repayment of high cost debt and raise general corpus fund.

To part-finance these, it is offering 5745000 equity share of Rs. 10 each within a price band of Rs. 190-210. The company will generate Rs. 109.15 crore to Rs. 120.64 crore on the basis of lower and the upper price band. The issue opens for subscription on September 7 and closes on September 12. Post issue, shares will be listed on BSE and NSE. CARE has assigned IPO grade 3 to this IPO indicating average fundamentals of the company. Minimum application is to be made for 30 shares and in multiples thereof.

Almondz Global Securities Ltd. is the sole BRLM and Karvy Computershare Pvt Ltd. is the registrar to the issue.

As far as BRLM is concerned, out of 10 IPOs brought by this merchant banker, six gave negative returns on the debut day.


For the past three years, the company has posted an average EPS of Rs. 11.92. For fiscal 10-11, it earned a net profit of Rs.17.90 crore on a turnover of Rs. 423.97 crore, translating into an EPS of Rs. 16.78.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

On fully diluted equity post this IPO, the EPS stands at Rs.10.22 and on this basis, the issue is priced at a P/E of 18.6 to 20.5 based on lower and upper price band. Considering NAV of Rs. 40.92 as on 31.3.2011, the asking price is at an average of 4.9 P/BV. The issue looks aggressively priced and hence worth giving a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
