U H Zaveri BSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on May 5, 2018

U H Zaveri Ltd. (UHZ) has been incorporated as a gems & jewellery company. Its business operations are divided into two divisions i.e. into wholesale and retail of jewellery and into trading of jewellery. UHZ mainly sells gold jewellery and marginal percentage of revenue is earned through silver jewellery and other kind of jewellery and utensils. It does not manufacture but outsourced. However, the jewellery sold by it is either designed in house or through 3-D jewellery designer or by third party designers or purchase ready to sell jewellery directly from manufacturers. It’s registered office address and showroom address is the same, i.e., in Nikol Road, Ahmedabad and does not have any other outlet in India or abroad. It sells unique collection of contemporary, antique, kundan, polka and temple jewellery. Its products have presence across different price points and cater to customers across high-end, mid-market and value market segments.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, UHZ is coming out with a maiden IPO of 2220000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 36 per share to mobilize Rs. 7.99 cr. Issue opens for subscription on 08.05.18 and will close on 14.05.18. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME. Issue is solely lead managed by First Overseas Capital Ltd. and Karvy Computershare Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 36.30% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Having raised initial equity at par, it raised further equity at a price of Rs. 760 per share and then issued bonus in the ratio of 50 for 1 in February 2018. Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 0.20 and Rs. 14.06 per share. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 3.90 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 6.12 cr.

The company was incorporated on 28th August 2017 and hence has just about five month’s track record. For the period ended on 31.01.18 it has earned net profit of Rs. 0.75 crore on a turnover of Rs. 13.89 crore. As per offer documents it has posted an EPS of Rs. 1.92 (Not annualized n undiluted) and RoNW of 12.87% (for the five months period ended 31.01.18). If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue then asking price is at a P/E of around 20 plus against industry average of around 35. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.42 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 14.90 as on 31.01.18 and at a P/BV of 1.60 on the basis of post issue NAV. As per offer documents it is showing Goldiam Intl, Renaissance Jewellery and Uday Jewellery as its listed peers that are trading at a P/E of around 10, 9 and 35 (as on 04.05.18). Current weak sentiment for jewellery segment is raising concern.

On merchant banker’s front, this is 17th mandate from its stable in last four fiscals. Out of last 10 listings, 7 issues opened at discount to offer price, 3 with a premium ranging from 1 to 10% on the day of listing. Thus it has poor track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Company has just five months working. Issue pricing appears aggressive. Merchant banker has poor track records. Considering current status of sentiment for jewellery segment, there is no harm in giving this issue a miss.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
