Raghuvansh Agrofarms IPO Review - Not Worth (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on January 9, 2015


On one hand, we witnessed withdrawal of main board IPO of NCML Ind that got just 45% response till second last day of extended period with lower price band and on the other, NCD offer from IFCI getting just 14% response in first full week of subscription indicating diminishing preference for IPO post debacle of Monte Carlo IPO post listing. Yet, we continue to witness entry of SME IPOs. Details of the same are as under: 


Raghuvansh Agrofarms Ltd (RAL): The Company claims to be a unique initiative in the agri-dairy products line. By the way of promoting involvement and participation of people, it strives to take the mainstay of Indian economy, agriculture and allied sectors, to the hands that nurture it. RAL owns cultivable lands and cattle stock, have consultancy liaisons with researchers, and possess vast experience in Indian business environment. The company offer financial, technical, strategic assistance in the agricultural and dairy business areas to establish profitable enterprises. With innovative initiatives like Microfinance and Kisan Helpline, it is helping many others realize the potential. 


Now to part finance its investment in subsidiary companies and construct Bio-Gas plant for power generation, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3600000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 11 per share to mobilize Rs. 3.96 crore. Post this IPO its current equity of Rs. 8.32 will rise to Rs. 11.92 crore. Issue is lead managed by Sobhagya Capital Options Ltd and Skyline Finance Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Issue opened for subscription on 09.01.15 and will close on 13.01.15. Post allotment, it will be listed on BSE SME. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. The company issued equity at a price of Rs. 100 to Rs. 500 during 2007 - 2011 and issued bonus shares in the ratio of 3 for 1 in 2013. Thereafter it again raised equity from promoters at a price of Rs. 20 per share that has helped it to get NAV of Rs. 20 plus. 


On performance front, the company has posted and average EPS of Rs. 0.37 for past three fiscals. For H1 of current fiscal it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.04 crore on a turnover of Rs. 0.67 crore translating into an annualized EPS of Rs. 0.01 on existing equity that will slide further on enhanced equity post issue and thus at asking price of the issue it will be above 110 P/E. Lead manager has poor track record for its past mandates.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy


Remark: Considering the entry barrier and poor preference from broking community, this high P/E IPO is not worth.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.

With crazy listings in the recent past, SME IPOs drew the attention of investors across the board and lead to seer madness. However, as SME issues have entry barriers and continued low preference from the broking community, any reader taking decisions based on any information published here does so entirely at their own risk.
