Issue consists of offer for sale of 5120619 shares and issue of approx 4444785 fresh equity shares (at the upper price band). The company plans to mobilize Rs. 774.46 to Rs. 779.58 crore based on lower and upper price band. Issue opens for subscription on 31.07.17 and will close on 02.08.17. Minimum application is to be made for 18 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE and NSE. BRLMs to this issue are Axis Capital Ltd, ICICI Securities Ltd, IIFL Holdings Ltd, Kotak Mahindra Capital Co.

Under this issue, company has reserved 75% for QIBs, 15% for HNIs and 10% for retail in accordance with Regulation 26(2) of SEBI.

From signing of MoA till March 2006 it issued equity at par including a bonus issue in the ratio of 1 for 1 in October 2005. Thereafter it also issued fresh equity in a price range of Rs. 197.15 to Rs. 829.83 between July 2007 and April 2013. It converted CCPS at par during all these years till June 2017.

On performance front, the company has (on a consolidated basis) reported total revenue/net profits of Rs. 3107.68 cr. / Rs. 65.43 cr. (FY14), Rs. 3565.15 cr. / Rs. 48.48 cr.

It suffered a setback in FY 15 on account higher provisioning of depreciation, finance cost and employees benefits. Last three year's average EPS is Rs. 11.75 and for FY17 it is Rs. 13.03.

India is providing huge potential for speedy growth across the segments for this company. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of 65 plus that augurs well against its nearest peer Quess Corp (although it is not in all the segments like SiS) trading at a P/E of 95 plus. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 10.31.

SiS IPO review

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Being the first mover in three growing segments (of security services, cash logistics and facility management under one roof and registering 2.5 to 3% growth on month on month basis) issue is likely to generate fancy going forward. Investment may be considered for short to long term.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.

Hi Bhavesh,

I think Business Fundamentals are strong considering leadership position, Revenue CAGR, Pan India presence, Diversity of Customer Base.

At the same time price band is high considering nearest listed peer Quest Corp PE and MPS of 93 & 886

My conclusion it seems okay types not worth taking much risk.
