SI VI Shipping Corporation Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on February 15, 2014

While we have three Tax Free Bonds offer, yet another BSE SME IPO is entering in the capital market. Details of the same are as under:


SI. VI. SHIPPING CORPORATION LIMITED: (SVSC)The Company is a new entrant to the Indian shipbuilding sector and proposes to develop a modern shipyard spread over 24 acres to build ships of up to 120 meter length at the Dahej Shipbuilding Park developed by Gujarat Maritime Board supported by Government of Gujarat, India. Its focus would be to bid for ships up to 120 meter length in cargo, offshore, and other specialized segments. Currently it is working as a subcontractor for fabrication of hull with L&T’s shipyard at Hazira. Immediately on incorporation, SVSC bagged order of fabrication and erection of aluminum hull for 7 high speed Interceptor boats from L&T’s Hazira Shipyard. The company has already executed the first boat in a record time. It has enabled it to develop a team and capability through which it can undertake new shipbuilding activities. A highly professional and motivated team of professionals in the relevant field manages the affairs of Company.


Today, almost 60% of the total fabrication work allotted by L&T’s Hazira Shipyard is done by the company and in a short span it also took over operation of modern CNC machine for preparation of fabrication material for L&T’s Hazira Shipyard. Recently the company is also been awarded piping work for high speed interceptor boats by L&T’s Hazira Shipyard.


The company is issuing 2742000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 25 per share to mobilize Rs. 6.86 crore to meet repayment of debt and general corpus funds for capex. The issue is opening for subscription on 18.02.14 and will close on 21.02.14. Minimum application is to be made for 6000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Post this issue current equity of Rs. 3.01 crore will rise to Rs. 5.75 crore. Issue is lead managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd is the registrar to the offer.


On performance front, the company has posted an average EPS of Rs. 5.43 for last two fiscal and for first six months ended 30.09.13 it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.07 crore on a turnover of Rs. 1.10 crore translating into EPS of Rs. 0.47 on annualized basis. If we attribute these earnings, then asking price is at a P/E of 53+ and at a P/BV of 2.4 making it a costly offer.


This being the first mandate for lead manager, no track records are available.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Avoid this costly offer having entry barrier as well.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.

With crazy listings in the recent past, SME IPOs drew the attention of investors across the board and lead to seer madness. However, as SME issues have entry barriers and continued low preference from the broking community, any reader taking decisions based on any information published here does so entirely at their own risk. The above information is based on information available as of date coupled with market perceptions. The Author has no plans to invest in this offer.
