Riddhi Steel BSE SME IPO Review (Apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on August 31, 2016

Riddhi Steel and Tube Ltd (RSTL) engaged in the manufacturing of black and galvanized steel pipes in the various sizes having wide application in varied industries including power sector, agro based industries, construction industries, structural, scaffolding, irrigation and engineering industries, air and gas transportation, firefighting applications etc. The company also manufactures steel square hollow sections (SHS) and rectangular hollow sections (RHS) in a various size and thickness.

To meet its working capital and general corpus funds requirement, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2340000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 38 per share to mobilize Rs. 8.89 crore. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue opens for subscription on 02.09.16 and will close on 07.09.16. Issue is solely lead managed by Guiness Corporate Advisors Pvt Ltd and Karvy Computershare Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Except for few shares being offered at a price of Rs. 40 per share in March 2011, from inception till July 2013, it raised equity at par. Post IPO its present paid up equity capital of Rs. 5.95 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 8.29 crore.

On performance front, for the last three fiscals, the company has reported turnover/net profit of Rs. 207.27 cr. / Rs. 2.29 cr. (FY14), Rs. 234.97 cr. / Rs. 2.53 cr. (FY15) and Rs. 236.78 cr. / Rs. 2.66 cr. (FY16). If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post IPO, then asking price is at a P/E of 11 plus against industry composite of 9 plus, thus it has nothing on table for new investors in near term.

On merchant banker’s front, the merchant banker had some issues in the past that stands suspended by watchdog. This is the 22nd mandate from its stable and earlier mandates have shown mixed trends.

Conclusion: Based on latest earnings as per prospectus, the issue appears to be fully priced. However, risk savvy cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.
