RDB Rasayans Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 21, 2011

RDB Rasayaans Ltd. (RDBRL): The Company is promoted by RDB group that has interests in developing Real Estate, Cigarettes, Print & Packaging and warehousing. This company is engaged in engaged in manufacture and sale of FIBC (Jumbo Bags) and Woven Sacks and various woven polymer based products like Container Liners, Protective irrigation system, Canal Liners, etc. PP sacks are mainly used for packing the different products in the fertilizers, cement, polymers, chemicals, textiles, machinery, automobiles and steel industry etc.

RDB Rasayans produces FIBCs of U+2 panel, Circular Jumbo bags, Baffle bags, All panel bags, Conductive FIBC and Static dissipative FIBCs. In addition to FIBC, the Company also manufactures various woven polypropylene products including Small bags, Box woven bags, Roofing under laying fabric, Courier bags, Ground covers, Silt fence and Geotextiles. The Company offers woven bags and fabrics in both PP and HDPE. Its products are UV stabilized and pre-conditioned against shrinkage. Thus although company's name has Rasayaan (that stands for chemicals), it is in the packaging material manufacturing. To part finance its expansion plans and capital expenditure the company is coming out with a book building process IPO with an offer of 4500000 equity share of Rs. 10 each within a price band of Rs. 72-79. The issue opens on 21.09.11 and closes on 23.09.11. Minimum application is to be made for 80 shares and in multiples thereof. Shares will be listed on BSE and NSE.

The issue is lead managed by Chartered Capital and Investment Ltd. that brought six IPOs in the recent past out of which five IPOs gave positive returns on the debut day. Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd is working as registrar to the issue. BRICKWORK has assigned IPO Grade 2 to this IPO indicating at below average fundamentals of the company.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

On the performance front, the company has posted an average EPS of Rs. 2.51. For the year 2010-11 it posted a net profit of Rs. 1.80 crore on a turnover of Rs. 46.13 crore against net profit of Rs. 1.95 crore on a turnover of Rs. 30.61 crore for 2008-09 indicating at reduced margings. On enhanced equity of Rs. 17.72 crore, this earnings translated into an EPS of Rs.1.01 and based on this the asking price is around 72 P/E on the lower price band and thus it is priced exorbitantly. AVOID investment. 

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
