Recommendation / Investment strategy: Average EPS for the last 3 years is Rs 0.91. The EPS for the year ended Mar-2013 is Rs 1.12. Company runs on small revenues and margins. SRG Securities Finance NAV as on 31-Mar-2013 is Rs 17.62. Post this issue, the NAV would get reduced to Rs 17.09. This translates to 8x P/E ratio. Its competitors like Magma Fincorp and Sundaram Finance EPS are Rs 5.6 and Rs 35.80 as against SRG Securities Finance EPS of RS 1.12 for FY 2012-13. Considering some of these negative points and stiff competition my suggestion to investors is to stay away from such IPO.

    Thanks for explaining. Your way of explanation is really great.


  • Mohit

    What is EPS & P/E ratio. You regularly mention these terms while discussing about IPO. Please explain it.

    • Mohit

      One more thing, can you explain, what is non-banking financial companies? If possible, please write an article for the same.

      • Mohit, Banks and financial companies deal with financing, loans etc., Companies which generaly do not do banking business, but provide financing, loans etc. are NBFC’s. e.g. SRG securities provides financiing and loans. HDFC banking also provides financing and loans. But HDFC Bank is bank where one can open a account and do banking transactions. But not in SRG Securities. 

    • Mohit. EPS Refers to Earnings per share. This indicates that how much money your each share is earning. P/E Ratio is price to earnings ratio. Means how many times of share price you are paying based on earnings. These two are good ratios to compare with competitors whether the share price is under priced or over priced.
