Its client list includes Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto, Maruti Udyog, TCS Motors, Kinetic Engg., Tata Yazaki, Minda Group of Ind., Lumax Group, Fiem Industries etc.  

To part finance its plans for setting up of new parallel production units for Connector and Blade Fuse, working capital and general corpus fund needs, UWCSL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1376000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 35 per share. Issue opens for subscription on 12.10.18 and will close on 17.10.18.Company mulls mobilizing Rs. 4.82 cr. through this float. Minimum application is to be made for 4000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue constitutes 26.44% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by D&A Financial Services Pvt. Ltd. while Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Having raised initial equity at par, it raised further equity at a price of Rs. 100 per share between March 2007 and June 2013. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 10 for 1 in February 2018. Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 0.91 and Rs. 4.61 per share. Post issue UWCSL’s current paid up equity capital of Rs. 3.83 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 5.20 cr.

On financial performance front, for last four fiscals, UWCSL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 12.34 cr. / Rs. 0.40 cr. (FY15), Rs. 13.94 cr. / Rs. 0.57 cr. (FY16), Rs. 15.18 cr. / Rs. 0.75 cr. (FY17) and Rs. 17.87 cr. / Rs. 1.18 cr. (FY18). Thus it has posted steady growth in top and bottom lines for these fiscals. For first two months ended on 31.05.18 of FY19 it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.24 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 3.49 cr. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.16 based on its NAV of Rs. 16.24 as on 31.05.18 and at a P/BV of 1.69 based on post issue NAV of Rs. 20.74. For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 2.44 and an average RoNW of 17.43%. If we annualize FY19 earnings and attribute it to fully diluted post issue equity, then asking price is at a P/E of around 13 and thus appears reasonably priced.

As per offer document, UWCSL has no listed peers to compare with.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 5th mandate since March 2011. However, in last three fiscals, this is the 2nd mandate and the only listing that took place during this period opened at a discount on the listing day. From 3 issued of 2011/12, on opened at a discount to offer price while the rest 2 opened with a premium ranging 10% to 13.6%. Thus it has average track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

This auto ancillary segment IPO, at a reasonable value and having growing financial performance, may be considered for long term investment.
