Shree Pushkar Chem IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on August 20, 2015

Shree Pushkar Chemicals & Fertilizers Ltd. (SPCFL), (formerly known as Shree Pushkar Petro Products Ltd.), is an established market leader in the manufacture of Dyes & Dyes Intermediates. Its future development will have emphasis on safety and harmony with the environment. Company's manufacturing facilities are located near the commercial capital of India, i.e. Mumbai with an aggregate installed capacity of 10000 MT of various Dyes Intermediates. SPCFL pioneered with its 'Zero Waste' concept with backward integrations till now and is mulling forward integration.

To part finance its plans for acquisition of factory in MIDC area, setting up facility for reactive dyes, H-Acid and Vinyl Sulphone, setting up of effluent treatment plant, construction of additional godown and to meet corpus fund requirements, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of approx 1.07 crore equity share of Rs. 10 each via book building route with a price band of Rs. 61-65 to mobilize around Rs. 70 crore. Issue consists of offer for sale of 2026589 equity share from existing shareholders and the rest as fresh equity. Minimum application is to be made for 200 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue opens for subscription on 25.08.15 and will close on 27.08.15. The company issued equity at par since inception till 1998. In 2002 it issued equity at a price of Rs. 38. In 2006 it issued bonus in the ratio of 11 shares for every 13 shares held as well as fresh equity at par. From 2009 till 2011 it issued fresh equity between Rs. 10 and Rs. 26.56 and in August 2015 it made pre-IPO placement of 7.69 lakh odd shares at a price of Rs. 65 per share that raised the equity to Rs. 21.48 crore that will stand enhanced to approx Rs. 30.22 crore post IPO. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE/BSE. Sole BRLM of this IPO is Keynote Corporate Services Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue.

On performance front, for last three fiscals it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 6.77. Its turnover /net profit stood at Rs. 176.57 cr. /Rs. 7.25 cr. (FY13), Rs. 210.37 cr. /Rs. 10.44 cr. (FY14) and Rs. 266.81 cr. / Rs. 18.65 cr. (FY15). If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post IPO then asking price is at a P/E of around 10 that augurs well. As claimed in the RHP, there is no listed company which is exactly comparable having a similar business model as that of SPCFL. However as expressed in the RHP, listed companies in similar segments are having P/E in the range of 4 to 22. Thus this IPO appears to have been fully priced. However, it is noteworthy that for past five fiscals, company has consistently shown improvements in top and bottom lines and management is confident of maintaining the tempo.

Merchant banker has average track record for earlier mandates.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

As this IPO below is Rs. 250 crore, it will attract "T" tag for the initial listing period that will keep short term investors away from it. However, it appears to be a safe long term bet and investors may consider investment.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
