•    OGPCL is in renewable energy-based power generation. 
•    It has posted inconsistent performance for the reported periods. 
•    Its capacity utilization has been below average at just around 16%.
•    Higher equity base post-RI may pose a concern in servicing it. 
•    Well-informed investors may park funds with a long-term perspective.

The company has a diverse customer base with a mixture of off-take arrangements. Its customers include State utilities and private commercial and industrial consumers.

With respect to power sales to state utilities, it has long-term PPA either under Feed Tariff (FIT) or under APPC rates.

In the year 2010, the company pursuant to an initial public offering of 191,489,361 Equity Shares of ₹10/- each at an issue price of Rs. 47/-per Equity Shares aggregating to Rs. 900.00 Crores, listed its Equity Shares on BSE and NSE. The market capitalization (full float) of the company as of July 31, 2023, on BSE & NSE was Rs. 1,069.78 Crores and Rs. 1,069.78 Crores respectively. As of June 30, 2023, it had 125 employees on its payroll. 

The company is coming out with a Rights Issue (RI) of 230000000 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at par value to mobilize Rs. 230.00 cr. The issue opens for subscription on August 28, 2023, and will close on September 15, 2023. The company is offering RI in the ratio of 19 for 62 shares held by the eligible stakeholders as of the record date of August 18, 2023. The full money is to be paid on an application for the number of shares applied. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE and NSE. The company is spending Rs. 2.32 cr. for this RI process and from the net proceeds, it will utilize Rs. 145 cr. for repayment of unsecured loans to promoters of the company, Rs. 25.00 cr. for par repayment/prepayment of unsecured loans to subsidiaries of the company, Rs. 15.00 cr. for part payment/repayment of secured loans from lenders, Rs. 15.00 cr. for part repayment of secured loans to lenders Amrit Environmental, Rs. 10.00 cr. part repayment or prepayment of secured loans availed from Beta Wind, and Rs. 17.68 cr. for general corporate purposes.

GYR Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. and Saffron Capital Advisors Pvt. Ltd. are the joint lead managers and Cameo Corporate Services Ltd. is the registrar of the issue. 

Post-RI, OGPCL's current paid-up equity capital of Rs. 750.72 cr. will stand enhanced to Rs. 980.72 cr. Based on RI pricing, the company is looking for a market cap of Rs. 980.72 cr. 

On the financial performance front, for the last three fiscals, OGPCL has (on a consolidated basis) posted a turnover/net profit - (loss) of Rs. 261.27 cr. / Rs. - (50.71) cr. (FY21), Rs. 315.22 cr. / Rs. 46.55 cr. (FY22), and Rs. 290.21 cr. / Rs. 35.10 cr. (FY23). It has posted inconsistency in its top and bottom lines for the reported periods. For the last three fiscals, the company operated with an average capacity utilization of 16.24%. 

The company has not declared any dividends for the reported periods of the offer document. It will adopt a prudent dividend policy post listings of RI shares based on its financial performance and future prospects. 

The scrip last closed on cum-right basis at Rs. 15.13 on August 17, 2023, and opened on an ex-right basis at Rs. 14.00 on August 18, 2023. Since then, it has marked a high/low of Rs. 15.25 / Rs. 13.55. The scrip last closed at Rs. 14.32 as of August 24, 2023. For the last 52 weeks, it has posted a high/low of Rs. 15.36 / Rs. 7.08. 

The promoters' holding has declined a bit from 32.53% for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, to 32.48% for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.  

The counter is well managed and kept above the par value to lure investors.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Though this RI is at par, inconsistent performance by the company raises concern. However, the segment in which this company is operating is set for bright prospects going forward. High equity capital may pose a servicing issue. The counter is well maintained above par value by vested interest parties. Well-informed investors may park funds in this at par offer for long-term rewards.
