Review By Dilip Davda on March 29, 2016

Ruby Cables Ltd. (RCL) is engaged in manufacturing and dealing of qualitative conductors, cables and wires. Currently it has installed capacity of 50000 kms p.a. of conductors and 3200 kms p.a. of cables. Its products are sold under the brand name “Ru Cab”.

To part finance its working capital and other funds requirement, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2001000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 50 per share to mobilize Rs. 10.01 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 30.03.16 and will close on 05.04.16. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is solely managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd and Karvy Computershare Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME.

On performance front, it has shown consistent growth in top line from 2011 to 2014, but it declined in 2015. Its turnover grew from Rs. 27.77 crore in FY 11 to Rs. 97.92 crore in FY 14 and declined to Rs. 86.13 for FY15. Its net profits also marked improvement from Rs. 0.44 crore (FY11 ) to Rs. 3.27 crore (FY14), but it incurred losses of Rs. 2.38 crore for FY 15. For six months ended 30.09.15 it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.42 crore on a turnover of Rs. 48.21 crore. It issued equity shares at par from 1996 to 2007. In 2012 it issued further equity at a price of Rs. 30 per share and in November 15 at a price of Rs. 50 per share. Its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 4.25 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 6.25 crore post IPO. If we annualize these earnings then EPS on fully diluted equity then EPS will stand at Rs. 1.34 that will translate asking price at a P/E of 37 plus. Thus issue appears to be highly priced compared to its some of peers trading at a P/E of 20 or below.

On merchant banker’s front, this is 16th IPO from its stable and earlier 15 mandates have given mixed performances post listing.

Conclusion: Only risk savvy fund surplus investors may consider parking of funds for long term.
