Worth Peripheral NSE SME IPO review (Apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on September 10, 2017

Worth Peripherals Ltd. (WPL) is engaged in manufacturing of corrugated boxes. It is ISO 9001:2008 and FSC certified company enjoying consumer preference for their needs. Company’s both manufacturing units are located at Pithampur, Dhar, Indore (MP). It has fully automated plant that can have multi colour (up to 6 colours) printing. With growth in the retail, pharma, breweries, textile sectors, opportunity for growth in packaging industries has increased and thus Company aims to tap these markets for further marketing and supply. Indian packaging industry is currently valued at Rs. 85000 crore and is growing at an annual rate of 15 per cent plus. Sector is expected to be triple in next five years.

To part finance its purchase of plant and machinery, repayment of certain borrowings, working capital and general corpus fund needs, WPL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 4251000 equity share of Rs. 10 each via book building route with a price band of Rs. 40 – 43. The company plans to mobilize Rs. 17.00 to 18.28 crore (based on lower and upper price bands). Issue opens for subscription on 15.09.17 and will close on 19.09.17. Minimum application is to be made for 3000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely lead managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Issue will constitute 26.99% of fully diluted post issue paid up equity capital of the company. WPL has issued entire equity at par and has also issued bonus shares in the ratio of 1 for 1 in February 2017. Post IPO, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 11.50 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 15.75 crore.

On performance front, for last four fiscals, WPL has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 84.23 cr. / Rs. 5.15 cr. (FY14), Rs. 107.78 cr. / Rs. 6.02 cr. (FY15), Rs. 127.40 cr. / Rs. 6.47 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 132.15 cr. / Rs. 7.32 cr. (FY17). The Company has been delivering consistent performance in growth with its revenue growth of more than 22% EBITDA growth of more than 18% and PAT growth of more than 20% over past 5 years. Last three fiscals average EPS is Rs.5.93, RoNW is 19.19%. If we attribute latest earnings on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of 9 plus and at a P/BV of 1.21. Thus issue is priced reasonably. It has no listed peers, as claimed in the prospectus.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 44th mandate in last three years. Out of last 10 recent listings, 1 opened at discount, 1 at par and the rest with 1 to 18% premium on IPO price.

Conclusion: Listed companies in packaging industry are trading at a P/E of over 62 plus. This issue appears priced reasonably. Investment may be considered for medium to long term.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Listed companies in packaging industry are trading at a P/E of over 62 plus. This issue appears priced reasonably. Investment may be considered for medium to long term.

Reviewer recommends Subscribing to the issue.
