Shubhlaxmi Jewel Art NSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on November 16, 2018

•    SJAL has just single location operations.
•    Issue is priced very aggressively at 24 P/E against industry average of 12 P/E.
•    Financial data is showing average performance.
•    Sector is currently witnessing bad sentiment.

Shubhlaxmi Jewel Art Ltd. (SJAL) is engaged in the retail and wholesale business of various jewelleries and ornaments made out of Gold, Silver, Diamonds and Platinum studded with precious and semi-precious stones. Its product portfolio includes Mangalsutra, Patla, Chains, Necklace, Mala, Kandoro, Poncho, Payal, Rings, armlet, pendants, bracelets, bangles and other wedding jewelleries It caters to high-end, mid-market and value market segments. SJAL currently has only one showroom of 27000 sq. ft. at Bhavnagar and is in the process of setting up of own manufacturing unit. It procures materials from bullion and jewellery market deals in Gujarat.  

To part finance its working capital and corpus fund needs, SJAL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2504000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 26 per share to mobilize Rs. 6.51 cr.  Issue opens for subscription on 22.11.18 and will close on 27.11.18. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 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. while Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 30.15% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 10.00 per share. Its entire equity is converted at par value. Post issue, SJAL’s current paid up equity capital of Rs. 5.80 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 8.30 cr.

On financial performance front, for last four fiscals, SJAL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 45.14 cr. / Rs. 1.29 cr. (FY15), Rs. 47.43 cr. / Rs. 0.37 cr. (FY16), Rs. 43.44 cr. / Rs. 0.65 cr. (FY17) and Rs. 46.85 cr. / Rs. 0.82 cr. (FY18). Thus its top line is almost static around Rs. 46 cr. on an average with fluctuating margins. For FY19 due to conversion of partnership firm into company, it has shown two periods i.e. year ended 01.05.18 and year ended 31.05.18. If we combine these data then it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.15 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 6.12 cr. Thus this working may be attributed as its first two months revenues for ongoing fiscal. For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.19 and an average RoNW of 14.70%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.58 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 10.06 as on 31.05.18 and at a P/BV of 1.75 based on post issue NAV of Rs. 14.87. If we annualize first two months working and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 24 against industry average of 12.

As per offer documents, it has shown D P Abhushan, Moksh Ornament, Thangamayil as its listed peers that are currently trading at a P/E of around 13, 5 and 18 (as on 16.11.18 closing).

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 74th mandate from its stable in last three fiscals. Out of last 10 listings, all opened at a premium ranging from 0.5% to 8% on the day of listing.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Issue is priced very aggressively. Sector is currently witnessing bad sentiment. Considering these there is no ham in giving this issue a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
