Starlit Power Systems Limited IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 27, 2014

Starlit Power Systems Limited (SPSL) belongs to diversified Starlit Group. It is engaged in Smelting of Battery & Lead Scrap, manufacture, supply and export of pure lead, different Lead Alloys like Calcium Aluminum alloy Antimonial Alloy and Selenium Alloy, Lead Oxides like Lead Sub Oxide and Red Lead. SPSL has the smelting capacity of 15000 MT per annum and refining/alloying capacity of over 12000 MT per annum with technical capacity to convert assorted heterogeneous lead scrap into pure lead of up to 99.98 % purity.

It uses its captive producer gas as a fuel for all smelting and refining operations thereby considerably reducing dependence on Hydro-carbons like furnace oil and diesel. The biomass gassifier technology is Developed by TERI and approved by Ministry of New & Renewable Energy, Government of India.

Recently, SPSL has commissioned its battery project with the capacity to produce 10,000 batteries for automotive and inverter applications. Lead being an essential input in battery manufacturing and comprising over two-third of the battery cost, for this forward integration of converting the Company produced lead into batteries was a logical step forward for the Company. This project has gone on stream in July, 2014.

To part finance its needs of corporate funds, the company is coming out with an IPO of 1640000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 18 per share to mobilize Rs. 2.95 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 29.09.14 and will close on 10.10.14. Minimum application is to be made for 8000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Sarthi Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post issue, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Present paid up equity capital of the company is Rs. 4.48 crore that will enhance to Rs. 6.12 crore post IPO.

On performance front, it has posted turnover of Rs. 30.58 crore (2012-13) and Rs. 42.62 crore (2013-14) with a net profit of Rs. 0.30 crore and Rs. 0.04 crore respectively. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post IPO then asking price is at a P/E of 180 which makes it a costly bet.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 6th mandate and past mandates have mixed trends.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Avoid this costly bet that also has entry barrier on application as well as on trading post listing.
