To part finance repayment of existing working capital, general corpus fund needs, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3636000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 30 per share to mobilize Rs. 10.91 crore. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue opens for subscription on 10.03.17 and will close on 17.03.17. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue is solely lead managed by Guiness Corporate Advisors Pvt Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. From MoA in 1996 till January 2003 and on 30.03.2012 it issued equity at par. From March 2003 to March 2014 it issued equity in a price range of Rs. 20 to Rs. 100 per share. It has also issued bonus shared in the ratio of 2 for 1 (March 2012), 1 for 1 (March 2013) and 1 for 2 (March 2014). Its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 12.09 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 13.69 crore post issue.

On performance front, it has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 113.29 cr. / Rs. 2.39 cr. (FY2013), Rs. 147.22 cr. / Rs. 2.60 cr. (FY2014), Rs. 151.49 cr. / Rs. 2.87 cr. (FY2015) and Rs. 128.72 cr. / Rs. 3.67 cr. (FY2016). In FY16 despite witnessing setback in top line, it posted higher net. For first half of current fiscal it has earned net profit of Rs. 2.47 crore on a turnover of Rs. 73.96 crore. If we annualize these earnings and attribute on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 8 plus and at a P/BV of around 1.3, the issue is priced reasonably. It has no listed peer to compare with.

On merchant banker's front, this is the 27th mandate from its stable and in last three fiscals till date it has handled 15 issues that have shown mixed trends.

Conclusion: Cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.
