Company has posted strong revenue growth in the last 3 years. The revenues have increased from Rs 5.65 Crores to Rs 12.56 Crores in FY2011-12 showing a healthy revenue growth of 122%.
- Company revenues have dipped in FY2008-09 by 62% compared to FY2007-08. Company revenues have dipped in FY2009-10 by 16% compared to FY2008-09.
- Company revenues have grown only 38% in the last 5 financial years which gives an annualised growth of < 8%
- Company has posted a net loss of Rs 41.45 lakhs in FY 2008-09.
- Samruddhi Realty share price is Rs 12 per share. It is trading at 2.72x on an annualized EPS of Rs 4.41. The company has a huge debt of Rs 1876.07 lakhs towards secured loans and Rs 373 lakhs towards unsecured loans. In this public issue, it is raising a capital of Rs 260 Lakhs only inspite of having such heavy debts. Due to heavy debts it needs to incur heavy finance costs year on year.
- The minimum investment is Rs 120,000. Small investors cannot afford to invest such big amount for a SME IPO.
- Majority of the projects are under joint development model. With such a model in place, the margins would be very low.
Recommendation / Investment strategy: Thought Samruddhi Realty has posted good revenue performance in the last 3 years, considering the high financial costs, inconsistent revenue growth in last 5 years and its low margins are not providing confidence about the company. Hence, we request that investors should stay away from such IPO.
