United Polyfab NSE SME IPO review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on May 24, 2016

United Polyfab Gujarat Ltd (UPGL) was initially engaged in the trading business of Grey cloth fabrics. The company commenced the manufacturing/weaving of Grey denim, Grey shirting fabric and cotton grey fabric in October, 2013 At present, UPGL is having 42 Airjet automatic Looms having capacity to manufacture/weaving upto 28896 meters grey denim/grey fabric/cotton grey fabric per day in 3 shifts. Company operates at its average capacity of 7,00,000 meters per month. Now as a part of backward integration the Company is setting up spinning unit with an installed capacity of 20064 spindles for which company has already purchased land admeasuring area of 15,935 sq. meters at village Timba, Daskroi, Ahmedabad.

To part finance setting up of spinning unit and to raise general corpus fund, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1701000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 45 per share to mobilize Rs. 7.65 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 25.05.16 and will close on 30.05.16. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Having raised initial capital at par in October 2010 and February 2011, the company issued shares at a price of Rs. 50 per share in July 2011, at Rs. 200 per share in March 2012, at Rs. 20 per share in November 2012 and February 2013.  Its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 2.98 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 4.68 crore post IPO.  Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME (Emerge). Issue is solely managed by Corporate Strategic Allianz Ltd and Satellite Corporate Services Pvt Ltd is registrar to the issue.

On performance front, for last three fiscals the company has posted turnover and net profit of Rs. 9.65 cr. / Rs. 0.26 cr. (FY14), Rs. 31.84 cr. / Rs. 0.45 cr.  (FY15) and Rs. 34.96 cr. / Rs. 0.79 cr. (FY16).  If we attribute FY16 earnings on fully diluted equity post IPO then the asking price is at a P/E of 26 plus. Thus issue is aggressively priced.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the seventh IPO from its stable and it has poor track record for its past mandates.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Being aggressively priced IPO, only risks aver cash surplus investors may consider investment for long term.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
