UTSL provides services to telecom industry players ranging from telecom equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) to telecom operators.

To part finance its debt repayments, working capital and general corpus fund needs, UTSL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3638000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 55 per share to mobilize Rs. 20.01 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 05.03.18 and will close on 07.03.18. Minimum application is to be made for 2000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Systematix Corporate Services Limited and Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Company has reserved 804000 shares for pre-IPO placement and thus the net public issue is for 2834000 shares valued at Rs. 15.59 crore. Issue constitutes 26.50% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Having issued initial equity at par, it raised further equity in the price range of Rs. 125 to Rs. 235 per share. It has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 15 for 1. It has raised Rs. 4.42 crore under pre-IPO placement of 804000 shares at Rs. 55 per share in February 2018. Post issue its current paid up capital of Rs. 7.06 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 10.69 crore. Average cost of acquisitions of shares by the promoters is Rs. 4.19, Rs. 11.25 and Rs. 12.68 per share.

On performance front, UTSL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 1.51 cr. / Rs. 0.01  cr. (FY14), Rs. 6.23 cr. / Rs. 0.10 cr. (FY15), Rs. 14.31 cr. / Rs. 0.23 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 27.90 cr. / Rs. 1.08 cr. (FY17). It has earned net profit of Rs. 2.16 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 17.02 cr. for first half of the current fiscal. For last three fiscals it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 97.02 and an average RoNW of 52.08% on an equity base of Rs. 0.23 crore that is swelling to Rs. 10.69 crore post issue. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 0.17 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 316.88 as on 30.09.17 and at a P/BV of 1.96 on the basis of its post issue NAV of Rs. 28.13. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of 13 plus. It has no listed peers to compare with.     

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 3rd mandate from its stable in last three years. Last 2 listings opened at a premium ranging from 16% to 20% on the listing day.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Although company’s track record is impressive, sudden rise in equity from Rs. 0.23 crore to Rs. 10.69 crore raises concern. Moderate investment may be considered for long term
