Review By Dilip Davda on September 24, 2012

RCL Retail Limited is promoted by Lodha group, the first generation entrepreneur.  The company is engaged in the business of trading of ready to eat snacks, fryums, bakery products, cookies, confectioneries, namkeens, chutneys, mouth-fresheners, juices, mobile food such as vada pav etc. Currently it operates through its two well furnished retail stores located in Chennai.

The company is now planning to set up a processing unit with the facility of processing food grains, pulses and retailing under brand name of RCL. It is also planning to expand its presence geographically by adding eight (8) retail stores in and around Chennai. At present RCL has presence in southern part of India and they are also planning to expand their business in Rajasthan, Gujarat and North India. To part finance above programme and also to strengthen its supply chain management and raising corpus fund, the company is offering 5795000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at par. The issue opens for subscription on 27.09.12 and will close on 01.10.12. Minimum application is to be made for 10000 shares. With this float company plans to raise Rs. 5.80 crore. Post issue shares will be listed on BSE-SME platform.

As the company was established only during 2010, during its first partial fiscal, it posted a turnover of Rs. 0.91 crore with a net profit of Rs. 0.02 crore. In its first full year ended 31.03.2012 it posted net profit of Rs. 0.07 crore on a turnover of Rs. 6.67 crore. The management hopes to improve top and bottom line post proposed expansion.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Guiness Merchant Bankers Pvt. Ltd. is the sole manager to this IPO and Cameo Corporate Services Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. There are no track records of Merchant Banker as this is their first mandate.

Since the issue is at par and considering the recent development of relaxing FDI in Retail sector, this issue is likely to generate good interest. HNIs can park moderate fund for long term rewards as post issue the paid up capital will get enhanced from Rs. 6.51 crore to Rs. 12.30 crore.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.
