Company's product range include HDPE Pipes, Pipes Fittings and Irrigation Equipments including drip/sprinkler systems, Disc filters, Screen filters, Hydro-Cyclone filters, Sand (Gravel) filters, Compression fittings, valves (Electric & Mechanical), Fertilizer Tanks etc.

To part finance working capital and general corpus fund needs, RMD is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2010000 equity share of Rs. 10 each via book building route with a price band of Rs. 53 – 57 per share to mobilize Rs. 10.65 cr. to Rs. 11.46 crore (based on lower and upper price bands). Issue opens for subscription on 19.09.17 and will close on 25.09.17. Minimum application is to be made for 2000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. The issue constitutes 30.04% of the fully diluted post issue paid up capital of the company. Issue is solely lead managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Having raised most of its equity at par, it also issued shares at a price of Rs. 20 per share in October 2014 and has issued bonus shares in the ratio of 15 for 1 in September 2014, 0.7 to 1 in November 2014, 2.6 to 1 in July 2017. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 4.68 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 6.69 crore.

On performance front, RMD has reported turnover/net profits of Rs. 3.10 cr. / Rs. 0.03 cr. (FY14), Rs. 5.78 cr. / Rs. 0.24 cr. (FY15), Rs. 11.79 cr. / Rs. 0.32 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 28.73 cr. / Rs. 1.36 cr. (FY17). If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue then asking price is at a P/E of 28 plus (on the basis of upper price band) against industry average of 35 plus. For last three fiscals, it has posted average EPS of Rs. 2.68 and average RoNW of 24.96%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 4.3 plus. Thus issue is fully priced.

On merchant banker's front, this is the 45th mandate in last three years. Out of last 10 recent listings, 1 opened at discount, 1 at par and the rest with 1 to 18% premium on IPO price.

Conclusion: Cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.
