Module Structures for Jakson Engineers Ltd, Prayatna Developers Pvt Ltd, Welspun Renewables Energy Pvt Ltd., Insta Power Energy Efficiency Pvt Ltd etc. The company has two manufacturing units.

To part finance its working capital, margin money and general corpus fund needs, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3321000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 108 per share to mobilize Rs. 35.87 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 12.07.17 and will close on 17.07.17. Minimum application is to be made for 125 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. The net issue will constitute 25.01% of the post issue paid up equity share capital of the company. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE and NSE. Issue is solely lead managed by Sarthi Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. From incorporation till January 2007 it issued equity shares at par. Thereafter it raised further equity in a price range of Rs. 30 to Rs. 200 per share during February 2007 to March 2015. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 1 for 1 in June 2016. Post issue its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 9.96 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 13.28 crore.

On performance front, the company has (on consolidated basis) posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 292.57 cr. / Rs. 6.26 cr. (FY14), Rs. 330..36 cr. / Rs. 6.32 cr. (FY15), Rs. 310.20 cr. / Rs. 11.18 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 384.64 cr. / Rs. 20.74 cr. (FY17). For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs.15.17. For FY 17 it has posted an EPS of Rs. 20.83. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue then asking price is at a P/E of 6.8 plus and at a P/BV of 1.12. Last three fiscal’s average RoNW is 17.36 %. Peers are trading at a P/E of 18 plus. Thus issue is pricing is reasonable.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the first IPO for main board from its stable. It brought 28 SME IPOs since 2012 and out of last 10 IPOs listings, only 1 IPO opened below the offer price.

Conclusion: Issue is reasonably priced. But its initial listing (due to offer size below Rs. 250 crore) will take place in “T” group, which will remove speculative aspect for the issue. However, investors may consider investment for medium to long term.
