Polymac Thermoformers Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on February 1, 2014


While we have reports for FPO from Engineering India round the corner, being the first main line issue for CY 2014, yet another BSE SME issue is entering the capital market this week. Details of the same are as under:



Polymac Thermoformers Ltd. (PTL) is engaged in to manufacturing operations of disposable plastic glasses, cups, and bowls etc. These are fast replacing conventional glasses, cups etc. and are manufactured by thermoforming technique.



To meet Rs. 7.70 crore fund requirements for capital expenditure on existing manufacturing plant, brand building and raising general corpus fund, the company is offering 2200000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 35 per share. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. The issue opens for subscription on 06.02.14 and will close on 10.02.14. Post issue shares will be listed on BSE SME. Guiness Corporate Advisors Pvt. Ltd is the lead manager and Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue.



On performance front, the company has posed an average EPS of Rs. 0.02 for last three fiscals. For eight months ended on 30.11.13 it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.35 crore on a turnover of Rs.0.68 crore and marked an EPS of Rs. 1.48 that is really surprising compared to net profit of Rs. 0.01 crore on a turnover of Rs. 1.57 crore for fiscal 2012-13. If one attribute this earnings on annual basis on fully diluted equity post this issue, then EPS stands at Rs. 1.11. Its NAV stands at Rs. 12.86 as on 30.11.13. Based on this the asking price is at a P/E of 31+ and at a P/BV of 2.7 which is exorbitant.



During 31.03.2008 t 31.03.2010 the company made preferential issues at a price of Rs. 100 and Rs. 500 and then converted preference shares into equity at par on 12.07.2013. It also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 4 for 1 on 08.08.2013. Its present equity of Rs. 2.58 crore will rise to Rs. 4.78 crore post this issue.



On merchant banker’s front, this is 11th SME mandate from it and has mixed track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy


Avoid this costly offer


Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
