Tirupati Forge NSE SME IPO review (May apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 25, 2017

Tirupati Forge Ltd. (TFL) is engaged in manufacturing of closed die forged products like auto component, bearings, gears etc and forged flanges of mild steel, carbon steel, stainless steel etc. based out at Rajkot, Gujarat. The company was initially set up to cater requirements of international market mainly to US and gradually, it started exporting to Italy, Morocco etc as well as in domestic market.

To part finance its repayment of loans, working capital and general corpus fund needs, TFL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1800000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 29 per share to mobilize Rs. 5.22 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 29.09.17 and will close on 04.10.17. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 30.97% of the post issue paid up equity capital of the company. After having raised initial equity at par, it issued further equity in the price range of Rs. 11 and Rs. 20 between June 2013 and August 2017. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 22 shares for every 10 shares held in June 2017. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 4.01 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 5.81 crore.

On performance front, TFL has reported turnover/net profits of Rs. 7.04 cr. / Rs. –(0.01) cr. (FY14), Rs. 30.37 cr. / Rs. 0.70 cr. (FY15), Rs. 18.28 cr. / Rs. 0.17 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 16.37 cr. / Rs. 0.51 cr. (FY17). TFL has posted average EPS of Rs. 1.70 and average RoNW of 17.66% for last three fiscals on an equity base of Rs. 0.79 cr. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.67. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 33 which is equal to industry average. Thus issue appears aggressively priced. Last two fiscals performance with declined top and bottom lines not justifying the asking price.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 51st mandate from Pantomath in last three years. Out of last 10 recent listings, 1 opened at discount, 1 at par and the rest with 1 to 18% premium on IPO price.

Conclusion: Considering aggressive pricing, risk savvy cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Considering aggressive pricing, risk savvy cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.
