Sri Krishna Metcom NSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 12, 2017

Sri Krishna Metcom Ltd. (SKML) a Panchkanya group company is in the business of processing of non-basmati rice and basmati rice in India. According to company, it is one of the largest processors of non-basmati rice with a milling capacity of 350 Metric tons per day in the State of Jharkhand. SKML processes varieties of rice with the help of state of the art plant and machinery of International Standards i.e. Automatic Ultra Modern State of Art Buhler’s Swiss Technology Rice Mill. Company sells its products under the brand names ‘BABA’, ‘PANCHAKANYA’, ‘SINGHAM’ and MIDDU BHAI’ that are well accepted for their quality and standard in the market across Eastern India. Presently, it is also doing job work for other rice traders.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, SKML is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3500000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 55 per share to mobilize Rs. 19.25 crore. Issue consists of 600000 fresh equity issue and 2900000 shares by offer for sale. It opens for subscription on 14.09.17 and will close on 18.09.17. Minimum application is to be made for 2000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. The offer will constitute 26.45% of the post offer paid up equity share capital of the company. Issue is solely lead managed by Microsec Capital Ltd. and Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Its entire equity so far is issued at par. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 12.63 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 13.23 crore.

On performance front, SKML has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 24.22 cr. / Rs. – (1.60) cr. (FY14), Rs. 79.03 cr. / Rs. 0.88 cr. (FY15), Rs. 81.04 cr. / Rs. 0.86 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 82.11 cr. / Rs. 1.03 cr. (FY17). Last three fiscal’s top line and bottom line is almost stagnant. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of 70 plus (against Industry’s composite P/E of 40). Last three year’s average EPS is 0.75 and average RoNW is 7.18. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 5 plus. Thus IPO is priced aggressively.

On merchant banker’s front, it has no track record. This is the first mandate from its stable.

Conclusion: Considering aggressive pricing, there is no harm in giving this issue a miss.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Considering aggressive pricing, there is no harm in giving this issue a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
