It consists of fresh equity offer of 11500000 equity shares and the rest as offer for sale from existing shareholders (NYLIM JACOB BALLAS INDIA (FVCI) III LLC). NYLIM is selling 25% of its current holding through offer for sale. 50000 shares from the IPO is reserved for eligible employees.  Minimum application is to be made for 35 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter.

For first nine months ended on 31.12.14 it has earned net profit of Rs. 62.43 crore on a turnover of Rs. 1326.37 crore. If we annualized these earnings and apply on enhanced equity of Rs. 51.31 crore post this IPO then asking price is at a P/E of 22 against industry average of 19.98. Based on NAV of Rs. 168.51 as on 31.12.14 it is at 2.1 plus P/BV and thus it is a pricy bet compared to its peers. As on 31.03.15 it has order on hand worth Rs. 7849.70 crore (out of which around 12% is on BOT basis and the rest on EPC basis). As infrastructure sector is receiving major focus of investment in coming few years, this company is poised for bright prospects.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Although issue has fancy pricing, retail investors may consider moderate investment at the lower price band for long term.
