Reasons not to invest in Tentiwal Wire Products IPO

- The IPO’s listed on the BSE SME platform are trading on low volume and liquidity is an issue.
- Minimum investment required is Rs 1.30 lakhs.
Recommendation / Investment strategy:
- Average EPS for the last 3 years is Rs 1.51. At issue price of Rs 13, this translates to a P/E ratio of 8.59. Considering FY-12-13 EPS the P/E ratio translates to 7.51. It peers like Precision Wires India Ltd are trading at a P/E ratio of 3.79 (Highest) and Kei Industries Ltd at P/E ratio of 1.96(Lowest). Hence the issue price of Tentiwal Wire Products IPO looks very expense for such SME IPO.
- Though we are seeing a good revenue growth in the last 5 years, the profits are thin. These can be easily wiped out with small change in market conditions and under competitive world. The issue price is also expensive.
- Considering above facts, my suggestion to investors is to stay away from such IPO.
