Vishal Fabrics Ltd IPO Review (Avoid)

Review By Dilip Davda on July 25, 2014


Vishal Fabrics Ltd: Vishal Fabrics Limited (VFL) is a flagship Company of Chiripal Group, Ahmedabad and is recognized as a leading process house with a capacity to produce 100 million meter processed fabric per annum. The Company is engaged in the business of dyeing, printing and processing of fabrics of its own and also on job work basis. The Company procures mainly Grey Fabric and dyes, prints and finishes the same as per the client’s requirements. The processing unit of the Company is based in Narol, Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The plant has the capacity to print, dye and process wide range of fabrics i.e. cotton, polyester, viscose and man-made & blended fabrics suitable for men’s wear, women’s wear, home furnishing and many other applications.




To meet its long term funding requirement the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 3474000 equity share of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 45 per share to mobilize Rs. 15.63 crore. The issue opens for subscription on 31.07.14 and will close on 05.08.2014. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereof, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Aryaman Financial Services Ltd and Link Intime India Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE SME.




On performance front, VFL has posted an average EPS of Rs. 1.92 for last three fiscals ended 31.3.13. For first nine months ended 31.12.13 it has earned net profit of Rs. 2.12 crore on a turnover of Rs. 136.59 crore. If we attribute this earnings on expanded equity of Rs. 13.17 crore, then the asking price is at a P/E of around 21 against peers quoting below 5 P/E. Company’s equity shares was having face value of Rs. 100 till January 2014 and it made preferential issue of 2100 shares at a price of Rs. 300 per share in September 1998, 40000 shares at a price of Rs. 700 in May 2003, 10000 shares at a price of Rs. 2000 per share in March 2005, 5000 shares at a price of Rs. 2100 in November 2007 and then issued two bonus in the ratio of 3 for 1 in January 2014 and 1 for 1 in March 2014. In March 2014 it issued 500000 shares at a price of Rs. 45 to promoters to pave the way for pricing of this IPO, which is very aggressive.




Lead manager has poor track record.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy
