Rajnandini Metals NSE SME IPO review (May apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 19, 2018

•    Company is engaged in the business of trading of scrap.
•    It follows B2B model of working.
•    Its financial data shown inconsistency.
•    Issue appears fully priced discounting all near term positives.

Rajnandini Metal Ltd. (RML) is in business of trading of scrap of all types of ferrous and Non ferrous Metals such as Copper Wires, ingot scrap, and other related items used in various electrical and industrial applications. It works as a crucial business interface, networking between manufacturers / processors / yards and consumers / traders across the country. The company operates as an important intermediary in the Metals Supply Chain whereby it purchases materials such as Annealed/Un-Annealed Copper Wires, Copper Wires, Brass Scrap, Aluminium ingot, Zinc ingot etc. from various suppliers and supply the same to customers in the Metal Business. Company’s business model is based on B2B model wherein the Company sells the scrap to the business enterprises who further transform the scrap in to finished product as per their requirements.

To part finance its working capital, general corpus fund needs, RML is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1644000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 26 per share. The company mulls mobilization of Rs. 4.27 cr. with this issue. Issue opens for subscription on 24.09.18 and will close on 27.09.18. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue constitutes 26.76% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Issue is solely lead managed by Corporate Capital Ventures Pvt. Ltd. while Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Its entire equity is issued at par. Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 10 per share. Post issue its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 4.50 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 6.14 cr.

On performance front, for last four fiscals, RML has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 109.84 cr. / Rs. 0.55 cr. (FY15), Rs. 136.55 cr. / Rs. 0.32 cr. (FY16), Rs. 127.31 cr. / Rs. 0.55 cr. (FY17) and Rs. 141.16 cr. / Rs. 0.94 cr. (FY18). It has inconsistency in top and bottom lines. It suffered a setback in turnover for FAY17 but posted higher bottom line. For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.57 and an average RoNW of 9.27%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 1.46 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 17.84 and at a P/BV of 1.3 on the basis of post issue NAV of Rs. 20.02.If we consider FY18 earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 17. Thus issue is fully priced discounting near term positives.

As per offer documents, it has no listed peers to compare with.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 7th mandate from its stable in last two fiscals. Out of last 6 listings, 1 opened at discount, rest at a premium ranging from 0.70% to 8.75% on the day of listing.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Fully priced issue with inconsistent track record makes it a risky bet. Cash surplus, risk savvy investors may consider investment at their own risk.
