Sailani Tours BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on June 22, 2022

•    STTL is operating in the tourism and hospitality business. 
•    The company is operating in a highly competitive and fragmented segment. 
•    It has posted inconsistent financial data.
•    Based on FY22 annualized earnings, the issue is exorbitantly priced.
•    Investors may skip this costly offer.

Sailani Tours N Travels Ltd. (STTL) is in the travel industry and is one of the recognized holiday brands that cater to the overall travel needs of Indian and International travellers in the state of Kolkata. Its business can be broadly categorized as Leisure Travel, Corporate Travel, Forex and Visa Processing. STTL designs travel packages for both individuals and groups for their domestic and international leisure travel. It also makes travel arrangements for corporate clients to cater to their business meetings, conferences, events and as an incentive for their employees and business partners. 

It provides end-to-end travel solutions including land, air and cruise bookings, hotel bookings, in-transit arrangements, local sightseeing, visa, passport and medical insurance assistance and other destination management services. Besides, the company provides travel-related foreign exchange & payment solutions. It largely operates on the basis of the franchise model. As of the date of filing of this offer document, it had 13 employees on its payroll. It is operating from rented properties. 

To part finance its needs for working capital (Rs. 1.20 cr.) and general corporate purposes (Rs. 0.37 cr.), STTL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1264000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 15 per share to mobilize Rs. 1.90 cr. The issue opens for subscription on June 27, 2022, and will close on June 30, 2022. Minimum application is to be made for 8000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. The issue constitutes 26.87% of the post-issue paid-up capital of the company. STTL is spending Rs. 0.33 cr. for this IPO process.

The issue is solely lead managed by Gretex Corporate Services Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Gretex Share Broking Pvt. Ltd. is the market maker for this IPO. 

After issuing initial equity at par, it converted further equity at a price of Rs. 15 per share in April 2022. The average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 11.58 and Rs. 14.99 per share.

Post-IPO, STTL's current paid-up equity capital of Rs. 3.44 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 4.70 cr. Based on IPO pricing, the company is looking for a market cap of Rs. 7.06 cr. 

On the financial performance front, for the last two fiscals, STTL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 4.29 cr. / Rs. 0.05 cr. (FY19), Rs. 1.13 cr. / Rs. 0.03 cr. (FY20). For the nine months of FY22 ended on December 31, 2021, it earned a net profit of Rs. 0.03 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 3.14 cr. It is surprising to note that it has not given full FY22 financial results. 

For the last two fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 0.77 and an average RoNW of 3.65% The issue is priced at a P/BV of 1.17 based on its NAV of Rs. 12.77 as of March 31, 2021, and at a P/BV of 1.27 based on its post-IPO NAV of Rs. 11.80 per share. 

If we annualize FY22 earnings and attribute it to fully diluted post IPO equity capital, then the asking price is at a P/E of 187.50 making it a highly-priced offer. 

The company has not declared any dividend since incorporation. It will adopt a prudent dividend policy based on its financial performance and future prospects. 

As per the offer document, STTL has shown International Travel House and Easy Trip Planner as its listed peers. They are currently trading at a P/E of 00 and 72.87 (as of June 22, 2022). However, they are not truly comparable on an apple-to-apple basis. Its comparison with big players is really surprising. 

This is the 9th mandate from Gretex Corporate in the last four fiscals (including the ongoing one). Out of the last 8 listings, 2 opened at discount and the rest with premiums ranging from 0.54% to 21.89% on the day of listings. 

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

STTL has presented minuscule operations so far with inconsistency in performance. It is operating in a highly competitive and fragmented segment. A small equity base indicates longer gestation for migration to the main board. Its comparison with big players is an eyewash. There is no harm in skipping this highly-priced issue.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
