R & B Denims Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on March 24, 2014

R & B Denims is a Surat based company engaged in denim textile production and marketing. Before this IPO the company issued 1249000 equity shares at a price of Rs. 20 per share on 02.09.11,  415560 equity shares at a price of Rs. 250 per share between 02.12.11 to 27.03.12 and just 10 shares at a price of Rs. 75 on 22.10.12. On the same date it issued bonus in the ratio of 2 for 1. Thereafter, again it issued 3916666 equity shares at a price of Rs. 75 per share between 31.03.13 to 28.06.13 followed by bonus issue in the ratio of 2 for 1 on 09.10.13. Post this issue, company’s existing equity capital of Rs. 10.28 crore will rise to Rs. 13.99 crore. 

Now to reduce its high cost debts, the company is coming out with an IPO of 3710000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at par to mobilize Rs. 3.71 crore. The issue opens for subscription on 28.03.14 and will close on 04.04.14. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Hem Securities Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME.

As the company started its operations in 2012, it achieved a turnover of Rs. 60.59 crore for the fiscal 2012-13 and earned a net profit of Rs. 0.01 crore. For first six months of the current fiscal ended on 30.09.13, it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.13 crore on a turnover of Rs. 43.02 crore. So if we attribute these earnings on annualized basis on the enhanced equity base of Rs. 14 crore then the EPS stands at Rs. 0.19 per share and thus even at par, the asking price is at a P/E of 52+ and at a P/BV of 0.33 (Thanks to issue at hefty premiums as mentioned above).

On merchant banker’s part, it has mixed trends for its past mandate and has done operations in recent SME mandates, which may tempt HNIs. Company’s fundamentals are very poor.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

The issue that has entry barrier as well is not worth for average investors.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
