Review By Dilip Davda on March 12, 2018

Uravi T and Wedge Lamps Ltd. (UTWL) is a lamps and lighting products manufacturing and distribution company with core focus on automotive lamps and instrument cluster lighting. It specializes in manufacturing and distributing Stop and Tail Lamps /Signal Lamps /Indicator Lamps and Wedge Lamps for Two-wheelers, Four-wheelers, Tractors and Industrial applications for various Indian automobile manufacturers. UTWL is ISO/TS certified and holds certifications from the Automotive Research Association of India and E-mark for the products manufactured. Keeping in line with the current technological advancements in the field of automobile and home lighting, it has recently entered into a co-operation agreement with a Philippines based company named Global Lighting Phils. Inc for developing LED lighting products vertical of. The LED lamps are manufactured by Global Lighting Phils. Inc. under the brand name “UVAL” and are imported, distributed and sold in India by UTWL. It has recently entered into trading of LED Lamps.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, UTWL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1500000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each (comprising 500000 fresh equity shares and 1000000 shares by way of offer for sale) at a fixed price of Rs. 100 per share to mobilize Rs. 15.00 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 16.03.18 and will close on 20.03.18. Minimum application is to be made for 1200 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Aryaman Financial Services Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue constitutes 27.27% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Average cost of acquisition of shares by the promoters is Rs. 10 per share. Entire equity of the company is issued at par. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 5.00 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 5.50 crore.

On performance front, UTWL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 25.85 cr. / Rs. 0.58 cr. (FY14), Rs. 27.36 cr. / Rs. 0.83 cr. (FY15), Rs. 29.60 cr. / Rs. 0.94 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 29.16 cr. / Rs. 1.05 cr. (FY17). Thus is has shown gradual increase in turnover and net profits. For the first half of current fiscal, it has earned net profit of Rs. 1.56 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 16.45 cr. which is a bit surprising. For last three fiscals, it has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.95 and RoNW of 9.64%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 4.05 on the basis of its NAV of Rs. 24.68 as on 30.09.17 and at a P/BV of 3.19 on the basis of its post issue NAV of Rs. 31.35. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/ E of around 17 against industry composite of 47. As per offer documents it has shown Autolite India, Fiem Ind., Jagan Lamps as its peers and are trading at a P/E of around –(20), 31 and 23 (as on 12.03.18). Thus pricing appears reasonable. But will it sustain the growth in bottom line is a major concern.

On merchant banker’s front, this is 28th mandate from its stable in the past three years (includes 1 main board IPO and the rest SME). Out of last 10 listings, 4 opened at discount, 1 at par, 4 with the premium ranging from 1% to 20%. The only main board listing (Apollo Micro) opened at a premium of around 73.8% on the day of listing.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Although pricing appears reasonable, its higher profit for first half is a bit surprising. Cash surplus risk savvy investors may consider for long term investment.
