Reasons to invest Shri Krishna Prasadam IPO
- Good revenue growth in last two years. Revenues increased from Rs 25.70 Lakhs from last year to Rs 169 Lakhs in 10 months of this financial year.
Reasons not to invest in an Shri Krishna Prasadam IPO
- Profits are very thin. It earned Rs 10,986 in the last financial year (FY 2012-13) on a turnover of Rs 25.70 Lakhs. These can be easily wiped out with a small increase in costs.
- SME IPO’s are trading in low volumes. Liquidity could be an issue.
Recommendation / Investment strategy:
- Average EPS for the last 3 years is Rs 0.15 At issue price of Rs 10, this translates to a P/E ratio of 65. Based on last financial year 2012-13 EPS of Rs 0.01, P/E ratio works out to be 1,000. Even 10 months EPS for FY 2013-14 EPS shows 0.29 which translates the P/E ratio of 34. Its competitors like Eco Friendly Foods P/E ratio is 260.81 and Lakshmi Energy and Foods P/E ratio is 2 with average in this segment of 10.4. Since company cannot issue shares below this issue price of Rs 10, investors might get tempted to buy at this rate. However, at a P/E ratio of 1,000 based on last financial year data looks very expensive.
- Though company revenues are growing, considering thin margins and high issue price, my suggestion to investors is to stay away from such SME IPO.
