Shree Vasu Logi NSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on May 25, 2018

Shree Vasu Logistics Ltd. (SVLL) is engaged in providing various logistic services such as acting as carrying and forwarding agent, warehousing and inventory management and distribution management thrugh secondary transportation. SVLL has positioned itself as third party logistics services provider and operates on carrying and forwarding agent model.

To part finance its working capital and general corporate fund needs, SVLL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2064000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 45 per share to mobilize Rs. 9.29 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 23.05.18 and will close on 25.05.18. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 27% 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. 50 per share in November 2013 and has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 8 for 1 in February 2018. Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 1.97 and Rs. 2.20 per share. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 5.58 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 7.64 cr.

On performance front, for last four fiscals SVLL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 18.06 cr. / Rs. 0.53 cr. (FY14), Rs. 21.78 cr. / Rs. 0.66 cr. (FY15), Rs. 23.02 cr. / Rs. 0.76 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 27.69 cr. / Rs. 0.79 cr. (FY17). For first nine months ended on 31.12.17 of FY18 it has earned net profit of Rs. 1.89 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 22.79 cr. Super profits for first three quarters of FY18 raises concern. For last three fiscals it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.35 and an average RoNW of 14.47%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 3.28 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 13.74 as on 31.12.17 and at a P/BV of 2.03 on the basis of post issue NAV of Rs. 22.18. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 14 against industry average of 14. As per offer document it has considered Patel Integrated as its listed peer which is trading around 14 (as on 18.05.18). Thus issue is fully priced. Its debt equity ratio as on 31.12.17 is 2.25.

On merchant banker’s front, this is 60th mandate from its stable in last three fiscals. Out of last 10 listings all opened with a premium on offer price ranging from 1.59% to 40% on the day of listing.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

There is no harm in giving this fully priced issue a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
