Zodiac Energy NSE SME IPO review (Apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on November 21, 2017

Zodiac Energy Ltd.(ZEL) is a Energy Solution Provider company having experience of more than two decades in majority of verticals of power generations spectrum. Their spectrums of services are including Design, supply, installation, Testing and Commissioning (EPC) and Operation and Maintenance (O&M). Thus it provides turnkey solutions from concept to commissioning of power plants. ZEL has installed solar power plants for many prominent clients like Sun-Edison India Limited, Adani Group, Torrent Power Limited, Gujarat Energy development Agency, Reserve Bank of India, Directorate of Lighthouse and Lightships Government of India (GoI), Indian Oil Corporation Limited to name a few. The company has installed more than 6,000 KW of Rooftop solar power plants till now and it envisages reaching at 10,000 KW by end of 2017-18.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, ZEL is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1950000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at a fixed price of Rs. 52 per share to mobilize Rs. 10.14 crore. Issue opens for subscription on 23.11.17 and will close on 27.11.17. 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 constitutes 26.65% of the post issue paid up capital of the company. Issue is solely lead managed by Swastika Investmart Ltd. and Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. Since inception till March 2008 it issued equity shares at par and also a bonus issue in the ratio of 1 for 1 in September 2007. It raised further equity at a price of Rs. 23 per share in September 2017 and has also issued bonus in the ratio of 1 for 1 in the same month. Post issue, its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 5.37 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 7.32 crore. Average cost of acquisition of shares by promoters ranging from Rs. 2.50 to Rs. 9.40 per share.

On performance front, ZEL has reported turnover/net profits of Rs. 9.53 cr. / Rs. 0.11 cr. (FY14), Rs. 8.70 cr. / Rs. 0.05 cr. (FY15), Rs. 9.20 cr. / Rs. 0.11 cr. (FY16) and Rs. 16.74 cr. / Rs. 0.24 cr. (FY17). For Q1 of current fiscal it has posted net profit of Rs. 0.49 crore on a turnover of Rs. 8.25 crore. Thus last 15 months working has shown robust growth which is really surprising. For last three fiscals it has reported an average EPS of Rs. 0.46 and average RoNW of 11.30%. Issue is priced at a P/BV of 2.33 on the basis of post issue NAV. If we annualize latest earnings and attribute it on fully diluted equity post issue, then asking price is at a P/E of around 19 plus against peers trading at a P/E ranging from 13 to 138. Thus issue appears fully priced.

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 8th mandate from its stable in past two years. All of last 7 listings have opened at a premium ranging from 4 to 20% on the offer price on the day of listing.

Conclusion: Investment may be considered for medium to long term in this power sector offer. (Subscribe).
