The company is coming out with a right issue (RI) of 7858594 equity shares of Rs. 10 each at par value to mobilize Rs. 7.86 cr. The issue opens for subscription on August 03, 2022, and will close on August 12, 2022. The company is offering RI in the ratio of 3 shares for every 2 shares held as of the record date i.e. July 22, 2022. It will utilize Rs. 5.89 cr. for investment in the wholly owned subsidiary Aerolloy Technologies Ltd. and Rs. 1.60 cr. for general corporate purposes. The issue is managed by the company itself and Link Intime India Pvt. Ltd. is the registrar to the issue. The full amount is to be paid on the application as per the entitlement plus additional shares applied for if any. Post allotment, shares will be listed on BSE. PTCI is spending Rs. 0.37 cr. for this RI process. This RI is done at around a 97% discount to its book value. Thus it can be termed a "Mini Bonus" for the existing eligible stakeholders

As per the offer documents it has not paid any dividend for the reported periods. It will adopt a prudent dividend policy based on its financial performance and future prospects. 

The scrip last closed on cum-right basis at Rs. 4192.85 on July 20, 2022, and opened on an ex-right basis at Rs. 1670.00 on July 21, 2022.

The scrip has posted last 52 weeks' high/low of Rs. 2257.61 / Rs. 898.30. Promoters holding is at 67.80% for the last three quarters. The counter is well operated despite thin volumes.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

This at par right issue is termed as a mini bonus for the existing stakeholders. It has a strong book value and noteworthy financial data for the last two fiscals. We are witnessing fancy for companies in the defence and engineering segments. The eligible stakeholders should not miss this attractive RI.
