Roni Households BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on Nov 13, 2018

•    RHL incorporated in October 2017 and has just 11 months financial data.
•    Based on financial data, asking price is exorbitant.
•    Money is being raised to repay loans from promoters.
•    LM has average track record.

Roni Households Ltd. (RHL) that was incorporated on 9th October 2017 is currently trading in plastic granules and plastic household products which include tub, buckets, ghamela etc. It intends to further expand its business by manufacturing plastic products for household use. RHL has taken a land on lease in MIDC, Jalgaon, for setting up the manufacturing unit. Trial manufacturing process for small part of company’s proposed capacity has recently commenced. It took over promoter’s proprietorship concern Roni Enterprise in April 2018.

To part finance its plans for repayment of loans from promoters (Rs. 1.16 cr.), working capital and general corpus fund needs, RHL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1500000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 20 per share to mobilize Rs. 3.00 cr. Issue opens for subscription on 19.11.2018 and will close on 22.11.2018. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue is solely lead managed by Aryaman Financial Services Ltd. while Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 34.59% of the post issue paid up capital of the company.

Having raised initial equity at par, it raised further equity at a price of Rs. 20 per share in June 2018 by way of rights issue. Average cost of acquisition by the promoters is Rs. 13.43 and Rs. 14.61 per share. Post issue its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 2.84 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 4.34 cr.

On financial performance front, since it got incorporated in October 2017, it has just six months working for FY18 wherein it has posted turnover of Rs. 4.30 cr. with a net profit of Rs. 0.08 cr. For first five months of FY 19 (i.e. for the period ended on 31.08.18) it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.02 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 0.74 cr. For the periods ended on 31.03.18 and 31.08.18 it has posted an EPS of Rs. 0.89 and Rs. 0.07 respectively (on none-annualized basis). For the fiscal ended 31.03.18 it posted RoNW of 13.26%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 1.41 based on its NAV of Rs. 14.21 and at a P/BV of 1.23 on the basis of post issue NAV of Rs. 16.21. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 181 against industry average of 24 making it exorbitantly priced issue.

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

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 41st mandate from its stable in last four fiscals. Out of last 10 listings, one opened at par and the rest with a premium ranging from 0.25% to 6% on the day of listing. Thus it has an average track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Company’s financial track record is not for 12 months so far as it was incorporated only in October 2017. Asking price is exorbitant based on financial data. There is no harm in giving this highly priced issue a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
