SPS Finquest Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on May 14, 2014


SPS Finquest Ltd is and NBFC engaged in granting loans against securities and also in financing investments and trading in securities and thus is in high risk low income field. To augment its capital base and repayment of high cost debt the company is offering 3344000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 75 per share to mobilize Rs. 25.08 crore. The issue opens for subscription on 21.05.14 and will close on 23.05.14. Minimum application is to be made for 1600 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Post issue promoters holding will come down from 99% to little less than 38%. Shares will be listed on BSE SME after allotment. Out of issue proceeds, Rs. 24.73 crore will be used for part repayment of loan of Rs. 61.38 crore taken from a shareholder named Shapoor Mistry at 11% p.a. coupon rate.

The company issued all equity to promoters at par till 2010. In November 2010 it issued just 100 shares at a price of Rs. 25 per share and in January 2014 it issued bonus in the ratio of 2 for 1 to take the equity capital from Rs.0.39 crore to Rs. 1.16 crore. Post issue the equity capital will rise to Rs. 4.50 crore. For the fiscal 2012-13 it earned net profit of Rs. 0.44 crore on a income of Rs. 7.87 crore on an equity base of Rs. 0.39 crore. For nine months ended 31.12.13 it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.63 crore on a income of Rs. 5.98 crore on the same equity. If we attribute these earnings on post issue equity of Rs. 4.50 crore then the EPS stands at Rs. 1.87 and based on it the asking price is at a P/E of 40 plus and thus is a highly priced IPO.


Issue is solely managed by Networth Stockbroking Ltd and Universal Capital Securities Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. As far as Lead manager is concerned, this is the third SME IPO from them and earlier two IPOs have given good returns, but that is purely on market making gimmicks and not on fundamentals. Risk aver investors having surplus funds may take a chance.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy


Avoid this highly priced issue that also has entry barrier. 

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
