ISSUE DETAILS/CAPITAL HISTORY:
To meet its funding requirements for xxx, SLL is coming out with a combo IPO of equity shares worth Rs. 700 cr. (approx. 25547464 shares at the upper cap). The company will be issuing approx. 7299288 fresh equity shares for Rs. 200 cr. and 18248176 shares by way Offer for Sale amounting to Rs. 500 cr.

The issue opens for subscription on December 16, 2021, and will close on December 20, 2021. Minimum application is to be made for 54 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE and NSE. The issue constitutes 31.74% of the post issue paid-up capital of the company. 

The joint Book Running Lead Managers (BRLMs) to this issue are ICICI Securities Ltd., and Axis Bank Ltd., while Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. The company has allocated 75% for QIBs, 15% for HNIs and 10% for the Retail investors. 

Having issued initial equity at par, the company issued further equity at a price of Rs. 34 per share (based on the FV of Rs. 2 per share) in December 2009. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 12 for 1 in March 2012, 1 for 2 in March 2013 and 2 for 1 in October 2015. The average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters/selling stakeholders is Rs. 0.48 and Rs. 36.09 per share. 

Post-IPO, SLL's current paid-up equity capital of Rs. 14.64 cr. will rise to Rs. 16.10 cr. Based on the upper cap of the IPO price, the company is looking for a market cap of Rs. 2205.23 cr. 

FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE:
On the financial performance front, for the last three fiscals, SLL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 285.86 cr. / Rs. 39.42 cr. (FY19), Rs. 322.71 cr. / Rs. 73.40 cr. ((FY20), Rs. 396.22 cr. / Rs. 123.83 cr. (FY21). For the first half of FY22 ended on September 30, 2021, it has earned a net profit of Rs. 65.96 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 230.06 cr. Thus it has shown a growing pattern for its top and bottom lines. 

For the last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 12.70 and an average RoNW of 46.43%. The issue is priced at a P/BV of 5.99 based on its NAV of Rs. 45.76 as of September 30, 2021, and at a P/BV of 4.12 based on its post-issue NAV of Rs. 66.46 (at the upper cap). 

If we annualize FY22 earnings and attribute it to fully diluted post IPO equity capital, then the asking price is at a P/E of about 16.72 and on the basis of FY21 earnings, P/E stands at 17.80. Thus the issue is attractively priced. 

DIVIDEND POLICY:
SLL has paid a dividend of 100% (FY20), 27.03% (on Rs. 2 FV - FY21) and 30% for FY22 to date. Thus it's a dividend-paying company. It will adopt a prudent dividend policy based on its financial performance and future prospects. 

COMPARISON WITH LISTED PEERS:
As per offer documents, the company has shown Solara Active, Neuland Lab, Aarti Drugs, Wanbury Ltd., and Divis Lab. They are currently trading at a P/E of 20.29, 30.26, 26.57, 00 and 56.76 (as of December 10, 2021). However, they are truly comparable on an apple-to-apple basis. 

MERCHANT BANKERS' TRACK RECORDS:
The two BRLMs associated with this issue have handled 53 public issues in the past three years, out of which 19 issues closed below the offer price on the listing dates.


Conclusion / Investment Strategy

SLL has been making strides with higher top and bottom lines year after year and exporting over 75% of products to more than 86 countries. Based on financial parameters, the issue is attractively priced leaving something on the table across the board. The issue is worth considering for short to long term rewards.
