The last main board IPO of Syngene Intl Ltd getting overwhelming response with little over 32 times oversubscription and that is sure to lure many IPOs in coming months. This month starts with a main board IPO from Power Mech Projects Ltd. (PMPL) Details of the same are as under:

Based on lower and upper price band, the fund mobilization will be between Rs. 262.54-Rs.273.22 crores. Since inception till 2009 it issued equity shares at par and then during 2011 to 2014 it issued shares in the price range of Rs. 142.64 – Rs. 200 per share. So far it has made three bonus issues – 2 for 1 (in 2007), 1 for 2 (in 2008) and 1.2 for 10 (in 2014) that took its equity to Rs. 125.83 crore that will rise to Rs. 147.11 crore post IPO.

If we attribute these earnings on post IPO equity of Rs. 147.11 crore then EPS stands at Rs.  48.53 and thus asking price is at a P/E of 13 plus that augurs well against industry average P/E of 21 plus. However, it is almost three times plus against last issue made at a price of Rs. 200 in July 2014.

On merchant banker’s front, they have mixed trends for their past mandates.
